The Collection

Leica: In Color

Fashion designer Paul Smith and legendary camera manufacturer Leica have teamed up to bring fans a camera system that marries the technical excellence synonymous with Leica and the vivid visual appeal of Paul’s designs.

The Paul Smith Limited Edition X2 (as it's called) has a bright orange top plate and an engraved light bulb image, hand drawn by Mr. Smith himself, reflecting the unusual pop-up flash on the top of the camera. The main body of the camera is wrapped in two complementing shades of green taking up the middle and lower portions of the camera.. Each camera has its own unique limited edition serial number and comes with a great, expertly molded camera protector and carrying strap in leather.

As expected of the X2’s, the camera features an APS-C-format, professional CMOS image sensor with 16.5 megapixels (effective 16.2 MP). This is combined with a high-performance Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH lens which guarantees maximum image quality and superbly brilliant exposures. In short, the camera is perfect for photographers wanting to take beautiful true-to-life images.

The X2 will be made available next month for around $3,000. If you're interested in picking up the limited edition, act fast. As only 1,500 are expected to be made.
