Leica Camera AG just announced the next special edition camera celebrating Leica Camera's centennial year the Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition 100.’
In honor of Leica Camera's 100 year anniversary, a series of special, centennial editions will be released. The second special edition of the centennial year, 2014, is the Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition 100.’ The centennial edition includes a Leica D-Lux 6 compact camera in a two-color finish with a silver lens and a high-gloss black camera body. The centennial logo is specially engraved on the front of the camera body. It is the number 100 showing a stylized version of the lens on the original Leica prototype, the Ur-Leica and the lens cover plate which needed to be swung over the lens to prevent exposure during film winding.

The special-edition set includes an elegant camera case in matching genuine black leather, with the centennial logo and a carrying strap and wrist strap to match. In technical details, the centennial edition is identical to the standard model of the Leica D-Lux 6
In its technical specification, the centennial edition is identical to the standard model of the Leica D-Lux 6 and is therefore characterized by combination of a high-performance lens and a 1.7" CMOS sensor that is particularly large for this compact camera class. The camera also offers a comprehensive range of features, including automatic mode, manual setting options and full-HD video recording capability. A range of optional camera accessories, for instance an electronic viewfinder, can also provide even greater creative freedom. Together with its intuitive handling concept, this all makes this elegantly eye-catching silver-and-black version of the Leica D-Lux 6 an ideal companion for capturing those special moments in pictures of outstanding quality.
This Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition 100’ is strictly limited to 5,000 sets. The centennial sets will be available from March 2014.
