LeicaLeica Elpro-D E69 for the Digilux 2 digital camera : Leica Camera AG Solms are launching a close-focus attachment as a new accessory for the digital camera Leica Digilux 2. The Leica Elpro-D E69 can be screwed straight into the filter thread of the Leica DC Vario-Summicron f/2.0-2.4/7-22.5 mm ASPH. zoom lens to extend the focusing limits of the optics. This gives the photographer added scope for picture composition in the close-focus range while enhancing the imaging quality yet again. The Leica Elpro-D E69 shortens the focusing range of the Leica Digilux 2 to 15 centimeters. For a focal length of 28mm, for example, an object field of 16x21 cm is obtained, for 50 mm a field of 10x13 and for 90 mm a field of 6x8 cm.

Using the Leica Elpro-D E69 close-focus attachment makes no difference to the photographic technique of the Leica Digilux 2. The Leica Digilux 2 is the first Leica digital camera that can be operated like a professional analog camera: The focus, aperture, focal length and shutter speed can all be adjusted just like a traditional SLR camera with setting rings on the lens and a shutter speed dial. Even when the Leica Elpro-D E69 is attached, the photographer still has the choice of manual and automatic focusing.

One of the most striking features of the Leica Digilux 2 is its fast Leica DC Vario-Summicron f/2.0-2.4/7-22.5 mm ASPH. zoom lens, which covers the focal length range of 28 to 90 mm in the 35mm system. With a size of 2/3 inch for a resolution of five million pixels, the image sensor is unusually large. This gives every single pixel a space of 3.4 µm, which is more than most digital cameras in this class have to offer.

Assessing the image before and after the picture is taken is easy with the large, bright 2.5“ monitor of the Leica Digilux 2, which proves particularly good in extremely bright surroundings. The exceptionally short shutter delay for a digital camera makes the camera excellent for quick, spontaneous snapshots.
