High-end camera maker Leica has taken the cap off a new limited edition digital camera that has a striking design. With 1960’s military undertones, the M-P (Typ 240) “Safari edition” has luxury written all of over it. Not only do the colors stand out, the silver trim and full grain rawhide leather accents really pop creating a one-of-a-kind visual. It’s a unique blend of modern technology and mid-century design with a price tag to match. With only 1,500 being produced, these cameras will be a rare find.


The Safari edition ships with all the standard technology you’d expect plus some extras: Leica MAX 24MP sensor, Leica Maestro image processor, 1080p Full HD video recording and a three-inch display. Technical specifications aside, it really is the design that makes this camera stand out. There are some smaller nods to its German heritage in the design including a WETZLAR GERMANY engraving on the body. leica-safari-camera

Those who are lucky enough to get their hands on this camera will also receive matching SD and business card holders modeled after the camera. Pre-order is currently available for the Leica M-P (Typ 240) Safari Edition with a $9,990 price tag.
