Leica D-Lux


Category: Point-and-Shoot

Well, sooner or later it was bound to happen, and who else but Leica should introduce the first forget-about-technical-specifications-just-look-at-me digital camera. The Leica D-Lux body is made of anodized aluminum, you can get your name laser engraved (at no extra cost) when you order it, and Leica advertises the D-Lux as a 'timeless object.'

For the money that you know you're going to spend for this little jewel, you expect to get some goodies? Well, how about an ox-hide leather case (5 different colors to choose from) and, get this, a second matching leather case to store a spare battery (included) and spare SD memory card. Leica has selected singer (and presumably amateur photographer) Bryan Adams to be the human face for this digital camera.

You're kidding, you really want to read the technical specs? Sigh, here are the specs:
