This second collaboration between eccentric innovator Paul Smith and the acclaimed German camera manufacturer Leica is based on Paul’s much-beloved 2016 Land Rover Defender, which features a custom paint job of 27 individual colors. Each of the 900 limited edition cameras is individually numbered and features unique illustrations from Paul on the camera body; while an eye sketch is placed above the viewfinder. Additionally, “Look and See” is engraved in Paul’s distinctive handwriting above the digital display screen, referencing Paul’s famous quote: “Many people look, but often they don’t see.” The 24 megapixel sensor, fast autofocus, high resolution electronic EyeRes viewfinder and ability to shoot up to 10 frames per second means you’ll never miss a shot. And thanks to the easy connection to the Leica FOTOS App, images can be transferred directly from the camera to a smartphone. For frequent Instagram users like Paul, this feature is reason enough to buy it;
