Leica Edition Hermes M9

The Edition Hermes M9 by Leica is the absolute retro stylish camera. Continuing the legend that started by Oskar Barnack’s genius idea of creating the small format 35 mm camera created a revolution in photography in 1925, the special ‘Edition Hermès’ of its ‘M9-P’ full-format digital camera was just released at a special event in Berlin.   Image courtesy of Leica
