Leica presents a new special edition version of the successful D-Lux line: the Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium. The 10.1 megapixel compact camera comes with a silver-grey styling and the high-quality materials used further reinforce its refined appearance. It will be available from October 2011 and will come together with a premium titanium-colored leather case and the latest Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® professional image-processing software.
The special edition features the same advanced technical specifications of the standard model Leica D-Lux 5. An ideal tool for a wide variety of photographic opportunities, the D-Lux 5 Titanium incorporates a fast zoom lens with a focal length range from 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent focal length).
With a wide viewing angle and 460,000 pixel resolution, the camera monitor displays extremely high quality images both before and after capture. Clearly laid-out functions and straightforward operation of its comprehensive range of features and manual settings ensure intuitive handling of the camera in all photographic situations, from creative image design to spontaneous spur-of-the-moment shots, or when using the 720 pixel HD video function.
The Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium’s offerings are expanded by a range of optional accessories. The Leica EVF1 electronic viewfinder is particularly useful when shooting under extreme lighting conditions. The Leica CF 22 accessory flash unit provides photographers with additional options for flash exposure and fill-in flash. A handgrip helps to ensure steady and safe handling of the camera.
Look out for the new camera in stores in the next couple of weeks.
