    LEICA TL2 - MyCamera
    One of the unique features of the Leica TL2 is it allows the user to have customizable settings under the MyCamera menu. This allows the user to program the camera according to their photographic needs. These settings can be changed just as easily by long-press touching and dragging on the screen.

    The Leica TL2 captures sharp, brilliant pictures with high contrast and vivid color while providing fast, precise and virtually silent focusing. The new 24mp image sensor and Maestro II processor elevate the TL2 to a new class of image quality, focusing performance and shooting speed. Now with the addition of 4K video recording, the TL-System has become more versatile than ever.

    With integrated Wi-Fi, the Leica TL2 allows the photographer to shoot and share pictures and videos via e-mail, Facebook and other social networks. With its wireless transmission, the Leica TL2 makes it possible to send pictures directly from the camera to a smartphone, tablet or computer. For iOS and Android devices, this is possible by downloading the free Leica TL app.

    The remote function of the Leica TL app allows the user to connect a smartphone or tablet to the camera wirelessly and use it as a remote electronic viewfinder for the Leica TL2. This allows the user to set the shutter speed, aperture and activate the shutter release remotely. This added versatility is incredibly helpful for self-timer shots, group portraits and shooting from unusual angles or from a tripod.

    Leica TL2 owners have access to the TL-lens portfolio which offers 6 lenses - 3 primes and 3 zooms - in a wide range of focal lengths and aperture speeds. In addition, Leica M and R lenses can be used on the Leica TL2 with an adapter.
