Leica M9 review


Price as reviewed:


White balance and colour

The M9’s auto white balance is equally reliable, and although the rendition of the 2.5in LCD screen is rather cool, once the images are transferred to a computer they are generally much more vibrant than they appeared on the back of the camera, and colours are accurate.

As always, when shooting JPEGs it pays to switch to a custom reading, but AWB delivers acceptable accuracy 
in most situations. Often, in fact, images shot in daylight are warmer and more accurate with AWB than 
the ‘daylight’ WB setting.
