Leica D-Lux Explorer Kit

Babysitting our camera’s lens cap is probably the thing we like the least about shooting, even with the thousands of accessories that promise to safeguard it while it’s off the lens. Leica compact D-Lux with Explorer Kit, on the other hand, lets you spontaneously snap away without having to worry about a cap thanks to its clever lens cover that splits and opens up as the camera is turned on. The camera itself comes equipped with a big Four Thirds sensor and a fast Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9–34 mm f/1.7–2.8 ASPH zoom lens that complement its spirit of quickness. Also included is a rugged red cotton carrying strap for securing the compact cam around your wrist. Though if you’ve already got a D-Lux just grab the Auto Lens Cap ($60) and call it a day.
