PRESS RELEASE: LEICA D-LUX 4 ‘Safari’ announced
New special edition features olive green finish
Leica Camera AG, Solms, presents a new special edition in the D-Lux 4 series: the LEICA D-LUX 4 ‘Safari.’ Following the introduction of the Leica M8.2 ‘Safari’ at the beginning of this year, the LEICA D-LUX 4 ‘Safari’ is the first compact Leica camera with the same olive green outdoor look. This special limited edition will be available in August 2009.
A durable, waterproof carrying case is included with the camera to complete the set. It offers ample room for the camera and optional accessories for the D-LUX 4 collection such as a handgrip, optical viewfinder or flash. Additionally, the back of the case has a compartment containing a nylon “rain cape” that can be pulled out to cover the whole case and protect it from the elements.
The body of the LEICA D-LUX 4 ‘Safari’ features an anodised olive green surface finish which is particularly resistant to wear and guarantees long-term protection against inadvertent damage. Like all models in the LEICA D-LUX 4 series, the LEICA D-LUX 4 ‘Safari’ has a tough metal body manufactured exclusively from the finest materials.
Similar to the D-LUX 4, the ‘Safari’ edition’s technical features offer versatile options for any number of different photographic situations. With its high-performance lens, lightning-fast image processing, well thought-out controls and optional accessories, the D-LUX 4 ‘Safari’ is a genuine compact system camera.
