Paul Smith, acclaimed menswear designer known for his use of color, adds his touch to the Leica X2 Paul Smith edition. Similarly known for innovation, the two entities produce a bold, tri-color camera featuring blocks in orange, hunter green and lime green. The actual camera measures up to anything on the market with a 16.1 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and is a typical Leica X2 under the hood. Atop the flash is a small light bulb drawing engraved for added character and nuance.

Only 1,500 units of Leica X2 Paul Smith Edition were produced, which means this is a release meant only for photography enthusiasts looking for added pizazz in their tools. Using a camera designed to feature explosive, engaging color, one can only hope the color in your actual photos can stack up.
