Your summer vacation packing list isn't complete without a camera to capture every glorious moment. Luckily for you, and just in time for summer, Hermès is teaming up with Leica to introduce a new camera set that costs more than the average family getaway.

The renowned Parisian fashion house is collaborating for a third line of Leica's special M-system cameras. This time around, there will be two versions of the M9-P made available, one in June and the other in July. The first batch is of 300 Edition Hermès digital rangefinders that will be available for $25,000, making them seem a bargain compared to the "very special" batch of 100 Edition Hermès - Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas models.

So that consumers feel they are getting considerable bang for their big bucks, both models come as complete kits. The less expensive model includes soft calfskin leather with a silver chrome finish for its redesigned control points, complete with a Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. Optic. The even more premium option features three lenses, the Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH., a Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH and a Leica APO-Summicron-M 90 mm f/2 ASPH with an anodized silver finish.
Both models also include some sophisticated carrying gear in the form of a matching bag and book, honoring the former president of Hermès, Dumas, and a matching calfskin shoulder strap. The carrying bag is handcrafted with intricate beading work, making the camera even more special for collectors and photography fans. What to wear with your new gadget? An Hermès summer scarf of course. The cameras are said to be available at Leica's worldwide locations. Visit to learn more.
