Leica Unveils New Camera Models in Malaysia
Following the successful launch at Photokina in Germany, Leica today held a small unveiling session in Malaysia for its new Leica M, Leica V-Lux 4 and Leica D-Lux 6 digital cameras. During this time, Mathieu Musnier, Area Sales Manager, South East Asia, Leica Camera Asia Pacific was present to provide a brief history on Leica and introduce these new models.
Choosing to drop the model numbers all together, Leica’s latest M-System camera will simply be known as the Leica M. This digital rangefinder is the first camera to implement a newly designed and constructed CMOS image sensor and to feature additional focusing methods and functions like Live View and Full HD video capability.
In addition to these models, Leica also announced a M-System digital rangefinder called the Leica M-E, which offers a relatively affordable option for consumer who wish to experience the fascination of the M system camera in its purest form. For those who simply love expressing themselves, Leica also announced a new Leica X2 A La Carte variant, which will let users customize their X2 from body material to the type of leather trim.
Designer Paul Smith also seems to be an ardent fan of the Leica X2 as the English designer gave an aesthetic twist to the camera with only 1,500 units available worldwide.
