Leica M9 Falls Off The Balcony, Breaks The Ground
Cameras are delicate pieces of equipment that should be treated with care. Except for this Leica M9, which fell off a balcony and broke the ground. Weibo user Saigon Matches had placed the M9 on the balcony railing to take pictures of it with his other camera. Unfortunately, a gust of wind toppled the Leica, and it fell down to the hotel pool.
Fortunately for Saigon Matches, it didn’t nor crack or make a splash. In fact, the hardy camera managed to break off a piece of ledge surrounding the hotel pool. The M9 didn’t emerge without a scratch, though: it had suffered some damage to the leather case and a dent in the metal hood.
