Leica Camera Introduces The Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) Solid Gray: A New Look for the High-Performance Compact Camera

Leica presents a newly styled, two-toned alternative to the standard Leica D-Lux model

Leica Camera announces the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) Solid Gray, a sleek and stylish new version of the popular Leica D-Lux compact camera. The Leica D-Lux Solid Gray is a two-toned model featuring a gray enamelled body with silver lens and control dials, giving the camera a sleek and modern look. The new version will shoot photos of the same impressive quality as the traditional Leica D-Lux (Typ 109), while also serving as an elegant and sophisticated accessory.

The trendy new camera will include a Leica CF D flash in silver and a custom-made camera carrying strap that's color-matched to the new model, making it a convenient and elegant companion for capturing unique moments in day-to-day life. The handcrafted leather carrying strap features custom Leica embossing and its broad form and non-slip lining make carrying the camera extra comfortable.

The technical specifications are identical to those of the standard model and uphold the same extensive range of features, versatile functions and intuitive handling that Leica is known for. Among the outstanding highlights of the camera are a fast, Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9-34mm f1.7-2.8 ASPH lens that is ideally matched to its large four-thirds sensor, delivering exceptional imaging performance. The zoom lens, which is equivalent to 24 to 75mm in 35mm format, gives it an extremely practical range of focal lengths, making it ideal for almost all genres of photography, from portraits to landscapes, architecture to macro and the classic mainstay of Leica cameras, reportage photography.

Its 4K video capability and integrated WiFi module for remote camera control give photographers further creative options, with the ability to share still and moving pictures to a smartphone or tablet. The Leica Image Shuttle app required for this function can be downloaded free of charge and installed on iOS or Android devices.

The Leica D-Lux Solid Gray, priced at $1,095 will be available at the end of November at your local Leica Store, Leica Boutique or Leica dealer.
