It's no secret, but not exactly well-known (or publicized in any way) for that matter - but you can opt to have your new Leica customized (for a fee, of course). Leica Store Miami recently posted the above picture as an example. It's a Leica M (Type 240) with the M9-P-esque "Leica" script engraving. Of course, you can also apply this to the M-E or M Monochrom as well. You can even choose the color (e.g. white or red). Not quite à la carte, but some options exist. Contact your local dealer (or Leica Store Miami) and ask about it. Of course, you can pimp your Leica in many other ways as well!

Over on Prophoto Online
is an interesting historical look at something near and dear to our hearts - film! The piece "175 Years of Photography - Film Lives On"
(in German) takes a look at film from its humble beginnings as dry plates, to color and instant films through today. Despite the unstoppable onslaught of digital, it's still enjoyed by many photographers... Its demise often foretold, but still not realized. If anything, it's arguably enjoying a resurgence these days. Read more
