When it comes to digital cameras, most people stick to the more popular brands such as Sony, Nikon, Canon, Kodak, Fujifilm, and perhaps even Samsung. Well, what about Leica? This is certainly an old school brand from Germany that has stood the test of time, and in their latest iteration of the highly successful D-Lux line, the German company decided to roll out a special edition of the Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium.
This will be a 10.1-megapixel shooter that will sport silver-grey styling that is impressively elegant in terms of design, and it sure helps that high-quality materials are also used in its construction to further reinforce its refined appearance. If you are a collector of digital cameras that come in different editions (ala the Nintendo DS Lite), then you would be pleased to have the Leica D-Lux 5 Titanium in your sights.
After all, you surely cannot argue the fact that each purchase comes with a premium titanium-colored leather case as well as the latest Adobe Photoshop Lightroom professional image-processing software, helping cement the D-Lux 5 Titanium set’s position as an all-inclusive package for discerning photographers – in addition to being an object of desire for lovers of stylish products and exquisite accessories.
Apart from the aesthetic upgrades of this special edition, all the advanced technical specifications of the standard model Leica D-Lux 5 will remain similar, making it an ideal tool to deal with a wide range of photographic opportunities. For instance, the D-Lux 5 Titanium will incorporate a fast zoom lens with a focal length range from 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent focal length), delivering a 1/1.63” CCD image sensor that can be said to be unusually large for a compact camera.
It also has a wide viewing angle and 460,000 pixel resolution, where the camera monitor will show off extremely high quality images both before and after capture. It has clearly laid-out functions and straightforward operation so that even newbies are able to take it up and start composing their shots right away without having to leaf through a really thick manual. If you want to record High Definition video with this puppy, that too, can be arranged.
