Leica Camera expands its APS-C System product portfolio with the introduction of the Leica CL, a camera which combines Leica?s classic design with ease of use. The Leica CL?s compact design with exceptional picture quality enables a photography experience unique to Leica.
The Leica CL is an intuitive camera with a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder and all essential controls conveniently located on its top plate, designed to be used with L-mount lenses. Atop the camera are two dials, with customizable buttons in each center, for setting the aperture, shutter speed, ISO value, exposure compensation and shooting mode ? making it convenient for the photographer to take pictures without taking their eye away from the viewfinder. An additional display on the top plate instantly provides all relevant photographic settings at a glance. The user has total control at their fingertips when taking pictures with the Leica CL, and the perfectly tuned pressure point of the shutter release brings it all together with a satisfying haptic click.
The expansive range of TL lenses and accessories such as the M-Adapter L, R-Adapter L, flashes, straps and camera protector options all enhance the shooting experience with the Leica CL while providing the user with more options for creativity.
