Leica Camera presents the Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’. This set comprises of the Leica M-P (Typ 240) Safari edition, Leica Summicron-M 35mm/f2 ASPH with round metal lens hood, a full grain cowhide carrying strap and matching SD & business card holder.

Leica’s safari/olive edition cameras date back to 1960 with the Leica M1 ‘Olive‘. Made initially for the military, the safari/olive cameras’ unique color stands out. Over the years, a handful of safari/olive editions were produced. Many of these limited edition cameras are highly prized collectibles.

The Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’ has an olive lacquered top cover, leatherette and bottom plate. The shutter speed dial, the On/Off switch, the release button, the hot shoe and some other details have a silver finish. The engraving on the top cover is reminiscent of the first safari camera in 1960 and has the classic Leica logo inscribed on one line and the wording ‘WETZLAR GERMANY’ on the second line. The 35mm/f2 ASPH has a silver chrome finish with a matching classic round metal lens hood. This set comes in a new packaging including a presentation box.

The Leica M-P Set ‘SAFARI’ will be available at Leica Stores, Leica Boutiques and Leica Dealers. There are 1500 sets available worldwide. The technical data of the camera and lens are identical to the serial versions.

Leica Camera presents the LEICA M-P ‘CORRESPONDENT’ BY LENNY KRAVITZ FOR KRAVITZ DESIGN. This set was designed in collaboration with recording artist, Lenny Kravitz. Presented in a handmade classic case, the set comprises of a Leica M-P, Leica Summicron-M 35mm/f2 ASPH and Leica Summilux-M 50mm/f1.4 ASPH.

The collaboration with Lenny Kravitz was born out of the artist’s passion for photography. The first camera Kravitz used was his father’s Leicaflex which he received at age 21, as a gift from his father. The distinctive design of the LEICA M-P ‘CORRESPONDENT‘ BY LENNY KRAVITZ FOR KRAVITZ DESIGN is reminiscent of a beautifully aged Leicaflex. The finish of each camera and lens is individually handcrafted with the edges displaying a patina similar to equipment which has seen years of constant use.

The camera and case cladding, the outer side of the carrying strap and wrist loop are made of snake skin leather. The case is handcrafted in Germany with the metal parts of the case showing a patina similar to that of the camera and lenses.

Unique to this set, the Leica Summilux-M 50mm/f1.4 ASPH has the classic outer design of its predecessor from 1959 with its profiled distance setting ring and the optical design of the current model. The lens hood, front and rear caps and body cap are made of metal.

There are 125 sets available worldwide. The technical data of the camera and lenses are identical to the serial versions.

Have you been looking for a great High Quality Point & Shoot Camera that does almost everything?

The New Leica V Lux Type 114
The New Leica V Lux Type 114

Have you been looking for a great all around Point & Shoot camera with a fantastic image quality? Look no further, the new Leica V Lux Type 114 camera has all your needs.  The V Lux has a fantastic zoom range of 25-400 mm.  Which can cover pretty much any photographic situation all the way from a wide angle to a telephoto zoom. It also has a built in Macro close up mode for shooting close ups of products, flowers, etc. The Aperture ranges from a 2.8 at the widest point to a f/4 all the way zoomed out. The lens is extremely sharp and gives great detail to your photographs.  One of the major upgrades I believe in my opinion is the autofocus feature. The AF on this camera is incredibly fast and accurate. Literally the second you press half way down it grabs focus quickly. If you have children and they are always running around like crazy. The Leica V-Lux has a really nice continuous frame rate. It can shoot 12 frames per second at full resolution. Which will enable you to be able to capture the moment you desire in your photographs specially for moving objects like wildlife & sports. Lastly, if you are a video buff  it has razor sharp 4k high definition video. If you would like to try out the camera or have any questions feel free to drop by the store or give us a call anytime.

Sincerely,
