Downloads

Leica M9 users instruction manual in English [PDF]

 

Software downloads:

Adobe Lightroom - Workflow and archive with RAW conversion - offers a 30 days free full working . When you buy a Leica M9, Leica S2, Leica X1 or Leica D-Lux you will get a working serial number with the camera, and that serial number will activate the trial vresion into a full working licensed version.

Apple Aperture - Workflow and archive with RAW conversion - offers a 30 days free full working trial.

Hasselblad Phocus - Workflow and archive with RAW conversion of DMR and M9 files - Free; you need to register with their site.

Capture One (also known as "C1") - RAW conversion - offers a 30 days free full working trial.

SilkyPix Developer Studio - a RAW converter that does what it says; create silky files. 30 days free trial.

Black and white software:
Silver Efex Pro from Nik Software - stand-alone software or as plug-in for Lightroom and Aperture. The de facto standard for converting color pictures into black and white. Nik Software offers a 15 days free trial and charge 200 Euro for the software which only works for Aperture and as stand-alone. But B&H Photo Video sells it for 149$. So try it at Nik, buy it from B&H.
An even better deal at B&H Photo Video is the Complete Collection for only 199$ including Silver Efex Pro, Dfine, Viveza, Color Efex Pro and Sharpener Pro.
True Grain is another black & white software from Grubba Software which can emulate Kodak Tri-X 3200 and other black and white grains. It's a stand-alone software for only 50$ though they offer a trial version that works unlimited, except you cant save your results.

Camera profiles:
Free Lightroom Leica M9 camera profile from ChromaSoft. Since Lightroom 2.6 you really don't need this anymore as the Leica M9 now has a profile with CameraRaw/Lightroomae.
