5 of the best James Bond gadgets
Leica M9-P Edition Hermes
Surveillance is a large part of working for MI5, as any agent probably shouldn’t tell you. And if something's worth doing, it's worth doing in style – so the Leica M9 P Edition Hermes is ideal. Designed by Walter de’Silva, whose day job is working on Bugattis and Bentleys (the literary Bond's motor of choice), the Hermes features smart minimalist design as well as a 2.5 LCD with sapphire crystal and 18MP sensor – ensuring you capture your target's best side.
Pay £18,000 pounds for the camera and Leica will kindly throw in a silver anodised Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens – so you don’t have to get too close and blow your cover.
