The Leica X is a high-quality 16.5 MP APS-C CMOS camera that comes with a fixed Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH (35mm equivalent 35mm) lens and is the ideal camera to always have by your side.
The Leica X was designed with a timeless, elegant body and of the finest quality metals available. Magnesium for the front and rear body shells, anodised aluminum for the top and bottom plates, all wrapped with a black leatherette trim. The well-placed top levers and dials allow selecting continuous (C) or single (S) exposure modes, setting shutter speeds of auto (A) and 1+ through 1/2000 second, and setting aperture of auto (A) and f/1.7 through f/16. The rear of the body has a 3""-TFT LCD monitor with 920,000 pixels (100% viewing) and quick access to commonly used functions, such as play, delete, white balance, ISO and menu, as well as a dial for quick access to adjusting EV or finding more information on screen.
The Leica X comes equipped with the fast Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH (35mm equivalent 35mm) lens. The design includes two aspherical lens elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion to provide clean, razor-sharp images; even in dim or poor lighting situations. Constructed with ten elements in eight groups, the high-speed Leica 23mm delivers the highest level of color correction and image resolution today. The lens almost completely eliminates flare and ghosting, even without an extra lens hood. Metering is handled by either smart multi-segment metering, center-weighted metering, or selective (spot) metering.
The Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH is designed to be used as either an autofocus or (with a quick twist of the focus barrel) manual focus lens that allows focus as close as 7.9 inches (20 cm). The LCD displays a zoomed image of your focus area to ensure accuracy.
The 16.5 MP APS-C CMOS image sensor allows capture of full-HD video at up to 30 fps with exceptional quality. The sensor allows capturing of high quality images at an ISO up to 12500. Output is recorded in Leica's RAW DNG format to maximize your post processing power. The Leica X also allows you to select from film emulation modes of standard, dynamic, natural, B&W natural, and B&W high contrast.
