In the current blog I would like to share my survey analysis on:
- The numbers of digital vs. analogue Leica M cameras reported by the users of the Leica User Forum.
- The number of films used by those that have completed the film survey.
With regard to the balance of digital vs. analogue here some of the facts from the survey.:
|Total No. Leica M Cameras Reported||260|
|Average Number of Leica M Cameras Per Respondent||1.8|
|Total No. Analogue Leica M Cameras||147 (57% of Total)|
|Total No. Digital Leica M Cameras||113 (43% of Total)|
|Total M8, M8.2||49 (43% of Digital Total)|
|Total M9||64 (57% of Digital Total)|
|Percentage of Users With Digital M||67%|
On the topic of film usage I provide the histogram below. It shows that the 56 respondents of this survey consume about 3000 Black & White films per year. Their Leicas are obviously being used for what they have been designed for.
