If looks alone could sell a digital camera, the Leica D-Lux 2 would fly off the shelves. Obviously that’s not the case, but luckily for Leica, their camera has enough to compete as a piece of technology too.
Leica created the first 35mm camera – and it looks like they’ve gone back to their early days for this stylish and unfussy retro design. The camera itself features a 2.5-inch display with a high resolution,. which should give you a bright and sharp display when you’re out and about. The D-Lux 2 is Leica’s first 8.4MP digital camera, providing the option to reproduce unlimited images in the 16:9 format. It also features a wide-angle 4x zoom lens.
And here’s a niche selling point – Bird watchers can pick up the new Leica digital adapter which connects the camera to a Leica Televid spotting scope to capture nature pictures at a long focal range.
The Leica D-Lux 2, along with a 64MB SD card, rechargeable battery and software is available now for around £548.
