Press release from Leica UK:
The perfect gift for the travel enthusiast and adventurer
Leica Camera has announced the Leica D-Lux Explorer Kit, featuring the company’s high-performance D-Lux compact camera, combined with a set of useful accessories for the travel enthusiast.
One of the fastest lenses in the Leica compact camera range, the Leica D-Lux features a Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9–34mm f/1.7–2.8 ASPH. zoom lens, which perfectly complements the camera’s large four-thirds sensor, and delivers images with exceptionally natural colours and outstanding quality.
Ideal for travel and all types of creative photography, this versatile lens (equivalent to 24 to 75mm in 35mm format) has been designed to excel in a multitude of photographic genres, from portraits to landscapes, architecture to macro, as well as the classic domain of Leica cameras – reportage photography.
Included with the camera is the Leica D-Lux automatic lens cap, which has been cleverly engineered to allow photographers to shoot spontaneously and capture subjects discreetly, without having to remove the cap each time. For maximum convenience, the shutters of the lens cap open up automatically as soon as the lens is extended, ensuring the camera is ready to shoot immediately – so the user will never miss a crucial moment on their special trip or holiday.
Also featured in the Leica D-Lux Explorer Set is an exclusive carrying strap made from highest quality cotton in a striking shade of red.
With its timeless and classically elegant design, the Leica D-Lux offers the same high performance and benefits of the standard model, delivering extensive functionality combined with intuitive handling.
In addition to its fast zoom lens, the camera’s outstanding feature set includes a high-resolution electronic viewfinder for the perfect composition of subjects, 4K video recording, and an integrated Wi-Fi module for remote control of the camera from a smartphone or tablet, as well as wireless transfer of still pictures or movies to mobile devices. The Leica Image Shuttle app required for this function can be downloaded free of charge and installed on iOS or Android devices.
