Back in 2017, photographer, art collector and philanthropist Jean Pigozzi brought his brand Mr Limo together with Leica to design a Sofort “LimoLand” instant camera. Now, the French-Italian entrepreneur has reunited with the German camera makers for a limited edition, camo-wearing CL “Urban Jungle.”
The camera specs itself remain the same as the usual Leica CL, with an APS-C CMOS sensor at 24 megapixels, a maximum ISO of 50,000, 4K video recording capabilities, a 49-point autofocus system, and built-in WiFi. On the exterior, the black camera gets wrapped in a Pigozzi-designed black and white camo-patterned leather, and comes equipped with a special grey carrying strap. Optics-wise, the set includes a Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH to keep things light and nifty — suitable for the traveling photographer.
Limited to only 150 worldwide, the Jean Pigozzi x Leica CL “Urban Jungle” will be available soon, with pre-orders already under way. The whole kit will set you back $3,950 USD. Head over to Leica Store Miami’s website to learn more now.
Elsewhere in photography, Adobe has designed a program to spot Photoshopped faces in the hopes of combating deep fakes.
