Leica has revealed its newest camera to its already esteemed lineup with the APS-C Leica CL.
As a modern counterpart of the Leica TL2, this version boasts a balance between state-of-the-art tech, mechanical precision and compact construction. One of the notable features of the Leica CL is its electronic viewfinder with EyeRes technology. This new viewfinder offers an impressive viewing experience and numerous advantages, as the final image is visible in the viewfinder before the shutter release is pressed.
Other notable details include the control dials and small LCD display located on the top plate which are fully customizable. In addition, the black and white LCD screen between the dials displays settings, battery and exposure indicators, while the back of the CL flaunts a fully touchscreen control system.
Inside, the camera houses a high-resolution, 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, a Maestro II series processor with fast autofocus as well as 49 metering points to guarantee maximum picture quality in all photographic situations. Furthermore, an integrated Wi-Fi module is added so that pictures and videos can be transferred wirelessly.
With availability starting at the end of this month, pricing for the CL body alone retails at $2,795 USD.
Previously, the company launched its new Thambar lens.
