Today, Leica has introduced a new V-Lux 5 Explorer Kit. The kit includes the capable and flexible V-Lux 5 Superzoom digital camera, a handsome Billingham Hadley Digital Camera Bag in eye-catching Imperial Blue canvas with tan leather accents, along with a premium woven Leica Rope Strap by COOPH in ‘Glowing Red.’ Priced just $100 more than a standard V-Lux 5 at $1,495, the kit represents a net savings of around $200 versus purchasing all the items separately.

Press Release

Leica Camera proudly presents the Leica V-Lux 5 Explorer Kit consisting of a Leica V-Lux 5 camera, a system bag from the Billingham ‘Hadley’ collection in Imperial Blue Canvas & Tan Leather and a Leica Rope Strap designed by COOPH in glowing red. These included accessories reflect an added value of over $300.

The Leica V-Lux 5 is ideal for all photographic situations – from wide-angle, standard, and telephoto photography to macro close-ups. The camera’s performance profile and still-picture imaging prowess are complemented by high quality 4K digital video recording that captures true-to-life memories in excellent clarity and resolution. The accompanying system bag from Billingham gives a fresh and vibrant look that pairs with the elegantly bright strap, featuring rugged rope combined with Italian leather accents.

The technical features of the Leica V-Lux 5 in the Explorer Kit are identical to the Leica V-Lux 5. The Leica V-Lux 5 Explorer Kit will be available beginning this month.
