Some people say that if Oskar Barnack were to build a camera today, it would be in APS-C-Format.
The Leica CL is the conscious translation of traditional values into a modern-day concept. A decision made to make photographic excellence accessible to everyone. Simple and fast to use, the Leica CL concentrates exclusively on essentials and delivers pictures in outstanding quality.
A high-resolution, 24 MP sensor, a Maestro II series processor and fast autofocus with 49 metering points guarantee the picture quality so typical for Leica.
Thanks to a resolution of 2.36 million dots and a practically imperceptible latency time, the digital viewfinder of the Leica CL allows complete control of image composition in every situation.
The iconic design of the compact Leica CL is a further milestone in the over one-hundred-year history of camera development at Leica.
The Leica CL is an intuitive tool. All controls are located in positions that enable photographs to be made without taking the camera from the eye.
The particularly light and compact Leica CL is ideal to take everywhere, and is always ready to fulfil your creative needs in every situation.
The integrated Wi-Fi module enables wireless transfer of pictures to smartphones, tablets or computers. Thanks to this, the camera also works perfectly with the Leica CL App.
