ColorWare Now Customizing Leica D-Lux 5
August 1st, 2011
Owners of the Leica D-Lux 5: are you sick of your camera’s classy black color? So tired of it that you’re willing to pay nearly half of the cost of the camera itself to get it re-painted? There, there. Don’t worry. ColorWare’s got your back.
For just $400 (USD), the gadget-pimping company will customize the color of your camera’s seven major parts – front, back, top, lens body, lens face, hot shoe insert and port door – as well as that of the lens cap. As with other ColorWare services, you can choose from a variety of colors and a glossy or soft finish.
If you’re still planning to buy a D-Lux 5, have a look at it’s vanilla form now. Looooooook. Don’t like it as it is? Then get a brand new and custom colorized D-Lux 5 from ColorWare for $1,200. That’s not too bad if you think the customization is worth the price, since the camera itself costs around $800 nowadays. Then again, $1,200 can get you a significantly more powerful camera.
