LEICA D-LUX 7 STREET KIT: THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR SPONTANEOUS STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
The black-finish variant of the Leica D-Lux 7 is now also available as part of a Street Kit, whereby the compact allrounder is complemented by a hand grip, additional black paracord camera strap by COOPH, and a spare battery. The light-weight set is an ideal choice for travel and street photography alike. For ultimate spontaneity and convenience, the lens is protected by an auto lens cap with an ingenious opening mechanism – which means that the photographer no longer has to remove the lens cover prior to shooting.
The Leica D-Lux 7 featured in the Street Kit offers the same technical specifications, multi-faceted functions and intuitive operating concept that distinguish the serially produced model. Equipped with the light-sensitive zoom lens Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9–34 f/1.7–2.8 ASPH. (equivalent to 24 – 75mm in the 35mm format) and a Four Thirds sensor, the high-performance compact camera delivers outstanding image quality in all shooting situations. Features such as touchscreen operation, Bluetooth technology, or in-camera charging via the USB port make the Leica D-Lux 7 an extremely flexible camera which gives the photographer a great deal of freedom, and the ability to capture the decisive moment.
Thanks to the straightforward connection with the Leica FOTOS app, the Leica D-Lux 7 can be operated remotely via smartphone; the app also enables the fast and direct transfer of images to iOS and Android devices. The images can then either be instantly shared on social media platforms, or edited beforehand.
The Leica D-Lux 7 Street Kit is available today at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers for $1,549.00.
