As the holidays draw inexorably closer we continue to look for the perfect Christmas gifts for our loved ones. Well, to be honest, this is one gift that I was looking for so that I could recommend it to my loved ones. Hence to them, and to you for the loved photographer in your life, may I be so bold as to suggest the Leica D-Lux 5.
I’m forever lugging around my camera gear and the last thing I want to do on a night out is bring my Canon 7D along. No matter how attractive the images it will produce, the weight is simply too much for day to day carrying. And most will photographers will attest to the same thing, hence, with Leica’s impecable heritage and uncompromising stance on quality I know that that one area that’ll be free from compromise will be image quality. The D-Lux 5 comes with an ultra fast f2 lens, face detection and 10.1 megapixel sensor whilst being small enough to slip in your pocket, making it the perfect after-dark party accessory.
