Uniform Experiment x Leica D-Lux 5By Meieli Detoni
I was more excited about Leica and uniform experiment’s collaboration because of the great brown leather pouch than I was about the camera, but that’s just me. The whole package is exciting, scheduled for release on May 11th, and looks great. That grained leather pouch has a traditional Leica logo scrawled across the front. Clipped on either side of the small, oblong bag, the Leica camera pouch has a long strap with self stitching and silver findings. Clip it on and go… although I recommend not wearing it by itself if you are have a touristing moment somewhere rougher than your average neighborhood (personal experience!). A little camera bag can be spotted a mile away.
I’ve included additional Leica camera shots in the gallery for your browsing pleasure. Uniform experiment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara loves Leica, and it’s said that this collaboration was a long time coming. I’m pleased with the quality case and the hot camera. There are logos positioned on the upper bit of the camera, and the release is limited to 200… in Japan. Do you like the case as much as I do, or is it not to your liking? I’m actually in the market for a new camera and could use a suggestion or two… I already have a Leica and a vintage Kodak and am looking to branch out. [via high snobiety]
