Leica has teamed up with EON Productions to feature some of the most iconic James Bond images in the ‘Photographs from the James Bond Archive’ exhibition. Along with the exhibit, Leica also launches a special release of the limited-run D-Lux 7 007 Edition.
The James Bond film franchise made its debut with Dr. No in 1962, and photography plays a significant role in the James Bond universe. Film producer Michael G. Wilson opened EON’s photographic archive for the exhibit, which is currently on display at Leica Gallery London until March 21st.
Spanning six decades of iconic James Bond films, the images on display capture images with the cast and crew in both familiar and new takes. Refined, subtle, and always ready, the classic James Bond values carry over to the Leica D-Lux 7. The limited special edition offers a new elegant exterior paired with a range of exclusive accessories.
The D-Lux 7 007 Edition sports a repeated rhombus textured pattern on the body and hand grip, the signature 007 logo on the top plate, while the legendary gun-barrel design is engraved on the automatic lens cap about the James Bond films’ iconic opening sequence.
The special-edition camera comes with the D-Lux’s large image sensor and fast Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens. It also comes with a wrist strap and a holster-styled leather case, which allows easy access to the camera and facilitates transport in comfort.
Leica only has 1,962 units of the D-Lux 7 007 Edition set worldwide in honor of the 1962 release of the first James Bond film to hit cinemas, Dr. No. The D-Lux 7 007 Edition retails for $1,995 and comes in a specially designed presentation box. It’s available globally from Leica Stores, the Leica Online Store, and through authorized dealers.
