Manufacturer's Description

Unsurpassed performance in a compact package

There’s one thing that all Leica cameras share: each is born of the desire to develop cameras that deliver the best picture quality in the world.

The Leica X1 is the direct beneficiary of 100-plus years of German engineering experience and it delivers the best picture quality in its class – in the proud Leica tradition. This elegant camera features a professional CMOS image sensor that’s as large as those in high-quality SLRs. Combined with an outstanding Leica lens it captures images of unmatched brilliance. Any way you look at it, the Leica X1 is a winner: It’s conveniently compact, its controls are intuitive, and it offers a full range of sophisticated automatic functions. A real Leica “Made in Germany”.

The LEICA ELMARIT 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH.
Countless iconic images in the history of photography were shot with a fixed focal length of 35 mm. This focal length is considered to be a classic for reportage photography, and has lost none of its timeless charisma today. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is a true Leica lens with terrific optical performance. When seen in terms of 35-mm film format, it has precisely this legendary focal length of 35 mm.

The LEICA X1 offers versatile photography in terms of its numerous automatic functions and manual individual settings. The photographer can choose the easy way and let the camera take the lead over exposure or shutter settings in the automatic mode or switch over to manual controls by using the wheels on top of the camera. Thus the X1 allows the photographer to keep full control for individual creative art work and at the same time provides the automatic mode to ensure the capability for quick response.

The autofocus of the X1 enables photographers to react in an instant. At the same time, the autofocus mode can be modified to suit the situation. Photographers have a choice of 1 or 11 AF segments and an additional high-speed mode for each. When taking photos of people, face-recognition mode allows complete concentration on the composition and framing of the picture.

Whenever you want, the X1 transforms image data into JPEG files for immediate use as quick as a flash. At the same time, photographers may also choose to store image files in the Adobe Digital Negative Format (DNG), a format that allows image-relevant exploitation of all the benefits of the recorded sensor data. With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, a professional digital workflow solution, also available as an online download free of charge for all Leica X1 customers.
