Leica x Hermès M9 Special Edition Camera
No, you can't afford this camera. But it's nice to look at.15-May-2012
The last time I went overseas, I lost a brand new digital SLR. So I bought a replacement point-and-shoot. And lost that, too. Then I just gave up on taking photos altogether until iInstaPhone came along with its built-in filters that makes me feel like I’m an actual photographer when in fact, I’m just faking it. But getting to the point of this post, for those of you who are still interested in cameras and their aesthetics, Leica & Hermès have teamed up on a limited edition M9 which you can’t afford, but it’s still pretty fucking sexy.
For $50,000 (see how I put the comma in there, that’s so you know I meant FIFTY THOUSAND), you get the Jean-Louis Dumas edition which includes three lenses in anodised silver, a handcrafted Hermès camera tote, a book and some other crap. If you’re a tight-ass, you can get the camera sans everything except one of the lenses for $25K.
No you can’t afford it. But you can watch the amazing Making-Of video and hate on Leica and Hermès and rich people then cry yourself to sleep because you can’t even afford to pay your iInstaPhoneLife bill. Sob.
