Extended Warranty for Leica Digilux 2

Leica Digilux 2

If you own this beautiful camera and you have no problems using it, you may ignore this news item. But if by chance you sense that its image sensor is malfunctioning, or you’re having any trouble at all with your Leica Digilux 2, then please get in touch with them right away.

Leica has extended the customer service warranty period for its Digilux 2 digital camera because of a reported malfunctioning of its image sensor. Although rare, the malfunction is reportedly more likely to happen after prolonged use of the camera in tropical climate (hot & humid) conditions. The malfunction shows as black stripes in photos or even a totally black image.

This malfunction is caused by faulty manufacturing of the sensor and also affects other camera brands. Let me guess: are the sensors from Sony?
