Digital Camera Description

The Leica CL is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with an APS-C sensor and a Leica L lens mount. Its 24 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-50000 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-50000. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 24 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to 25" x 16" at 240 DPI.

This camera features a hybrid shutter that can expose for 1/25000 to 30s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/25000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Leica CL

The Leica CL features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. Manual Focus is also available.

Dual controls-dials offer direct access to most exposure parameters which makes this digital camera suitable for advanced photographers. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. Framing on the Leica CL is performed via a 0.50" Built-in EVF with 2.4 Megapixels. This EVF has 0.74X magnification.
