A successor to the D-LUX 4, the introduction of Leica D-LUX 5 last year assured the camera maker’s position in the point-&-shoot market with its 10-megapixel sensor, 24-90mm zoom lens, and the ability to record 720p AVCHD videos. In their reverences to the brand and the camera itself, designer Hirofumi Kiyonaga (SOPHNET.) and influencer Hiroshi Fujiwara created a limited edition Leica D-LUX 5 based on their fashion label uniform experiment. In addition to the forementioned functions, the camera received subtle imprints of both uniform experiment and Fragment Design logos on its front, top, and back. It premium leather case is etched with similar imprints as well. Limited to only 200 units, the uniform experiment x Leica D-LUX 5 will be available starting May 11th with a suggested retail price of ¥120,000 or US$1,480.
