M9 spotted in Leica Youtube Video...

Well, guys, I don't know what you think (including Andreas and moderators) but IMHO I think Leica could have had the delicacy of providing us (LUF) also the video on Vimeo and YouTube.

 

 

Art,

I'm not sure what you mean. In your User CP when you originally signed up for the Forum did you check the box that said you didn't want to receive e-mails form the LUF or Leica?

I woke up to about 3 e-mails from Leica and the LUF this morning. That never happens. Or check your Spam folder.

Venkman, gravastar,

 

As you know I can see the video on YouTube and Vimeo but I think Leica could just have also offered here this "premiere".

Wonder if they will offer upgrades for existing M8 owners... that would be fairly helpful to those who spent £££ on their kit.

Looks as if they has got rid of the S-mode.

 

It bit hard to see on the images, but to me it looks as the weel goes:

A - B - 8s - 4s - 2s - 1 - 2 - 4 - 8 - 15 - 30 - 60 - 125 - 250 - 500 - 1000 - 2000 - 4000

I don't think this is about the M9...

 

... but people seems to be obsessed...

 

You don't think an announcement on 9/9/09 at 9am has any significance?

How can they support such huge broadcast? This is not Apple with the enormous datacenters... so, how do they do it? I wonder.

Also: Does it look to you that they have radically changed the VF?

 

Doesn't the link on their homepage indicate they're using Vimeo?

 

Jeff.

I received a Leica newsletter. The link is to the invite is coded...

 

Coded - meaning? I am yet to get any such 'code'

c'mn Leica, send me a code, or better still, a demo piece.

 

Swamiji, do you know where is it taking place in London?

 

Please pm me if it's that confidential.

Rumor has it the press conference will actually begin at 9 minutes after 9. Also, the Time Warner Building is very close to 9th Ave.

2 pm in London. But does anyone know where in London Leica will hold the press conference and strut their stuff? how does one get an invite?

 

I am free on 9/9/9.

 

The webcast is at 2pm in London. It doesn't mean that there is a physical press conference in London.

 

Try calling RedDot or Whites in the morning to see what they are doing. If I were them, I'd have a computer broadcasting the webcast on the counter.

well no one does - forget about canon, nikon, sony, even the mega buck phase one and hasselblad generally don't offer such a deal. why expect leica to do so?

Am I the only one that's been invited to the champagne reception with Brad Pitt, Seal and Victoria Beckham, at the new Leica store in London on the 9th ?

 

p.s. for 'others' you can register on the Leica website for access to the webcasts

I think that he means that the video was available via the Newsletter. FWIW, I haven't received my Leica Newsletter either.

HI James

I'll be there - they've laid on concorde to bring me back from chora sfakia for a couple of hours (and then back again afterwards).

seems like they will have hands on demo in the US. so, why not in the UK?

hopefully, it's not such a tiny market for leica.

 

the webcast on my desk has been arranged - along with pop corn and beer/coffee - no need to venture outside in the busy streets of London.

"Patience, Grasshopper"

 

I am sure that someone in London will have one for you to play with before the week is out. Don't forget, they will be under NDAs until 15:00 BST, so would only have a couple of hours of shop-time to present to the hoards.

 

It makes much more sense to have a full day of drooling at the weekend following, so as many people as possible can covet.

Oh boy, I'm really looking forward to the announcement. But then, 9 Megapixels isn't really state of the art, nowadays. And 9,999 pounds is also quite a bit of money. I guess, I'll rather wait for the M10.

 

As far as I know, they'll announce it on 10/10/10 -> Only 396 days from today. Let's all count down to 10-10-10. Which - by the way -is binary and stands for "42". If that's not signficant, what is?

Cheers

Frank

 

Ps. Anyone intersted in 9 rolls of Delta 3200?
