  • The C-Lux is a compact camera that unites speed, an intuitive handling concept and stylish design.Featuring a Leica DC Vario-Elmar 8.8-132 mm f/3.3-64. ASPH lens and a 20 megapixel sensor for continuous shooting at a rate of 10 frames per second, the Leica C-Lux adapts quickly to different situations to deliver high-quality pictures of subjects at a distance. With its 15x optical zoom,spanning focal lengths from 24 to 360 mm (35 mm equivalent), the C-Lux offers enormous creative scope that is further expanded by its 4K video recording capability.

    The Leica C-Lux is available in two colors, light gold and midnight blue.

    From the lens to the 1-inch image sensor, all components of the Leica C-Lux are precisely matched to one another and deliver brilliant pictures in RAW or JPEG format. With an impressive maximum ISO sensitivity of 25600, the C-Lux guarantees pictures with natural colors and exceptional quality, above all when used for available light photography. Thanks to its versatile zoom lens, fast autofocus and face detection,the camera also offers enormous flexibility in almost all areas of photography, and
    especially in spontaneous situations. Thanks to fast autofocus with 49 metering points, subjects are focused sharply in an instant, and a continuous shooting rate of 10 frames per second ensures that even the most fleeting moments will never be missed. Intuitively selectable scene modes provide valuable assistance when shooting landscapes, portraits or at night and enable users to concentrate exclusively on their subjects.

    Electronic Viewfinder
    Thanks to the viewfinder’s high resolution of 2.33 megapixels, the clarity and contrast of the viewing image is outstanding at all times – even in particularly bright ambient light. As the viewfinder covers 100% of the image field, framing of subjects is extremely precise and users have complete control of composition. The camera also offers diopter adjustment settings that allow eyeglass wearers to use the viewfinder without any problems.

    Touchscreen Display
    The 3-inch touchscreen display ensures particularly easy handling in all shooting situations. As with a smartphone, many of the camera’s functions can be controlled by simply touching the screen, for instance the transfer of still pictures and videos via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The ‘Leica C-Lux’ app that supports this function can be downloaded free of charge and installed on iOS or Android devices. The display screen features a special coating that prevents annoying marks and protects it against fingerprints.

    The high-definition, 4K-resolution, digital video recording function expands the spectrum of features offered by the Leica C-Lux. Thanks to exceptional resolution – four-times higher than full-HD – and up to 30p & 100 Mbit in MP4 format, the C-Lux delivers all the technical prerequisites for shooting your own, personal short film. What’s more, still pictures can be extracted and saved from video footage at a resolution of up to 8 megapixels.
