Leica Camera is proud to present the Leica C, the first model of a new line of Leica digital compact cameras. A first in Leica’s impressive history of compact cameras, the Leica C camera offers Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) which not only allows for remote access of images and videos from a smartphone or tablet but enables the user to view images and watch videos being captured by the Leica C in real-time from their smartphones.
Featuring a high-performance zoom lens, with a range equivalent to 28 to 200 mm in 35 mm format, and an extraordinarily large sensor for its class with a resolution of 12.1 megapixels, the Leica C delivers outstanding image quality, even in unfavorable lighting conditions.
The camera’s full-HD video function allows for even more creative opportunities. The 3" camera monitor offers photographers complete control during exposure and recording. Videos and still pictures alike can be creatively processed either in the camera or with the Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® professional imaging software supplied with the camera.
The body of the camera is the work of Audi Design, who were also commissioned to develop the unique range of camera accessories for the Leica C.
The Leica C and most accessories will be available from Leica dealers starting in October 2013.
