Leica X-U Digital Camera

Like you, the Leica X-U is ready for adventure.  In pouring rain, tropical heat or a blizzard – The X-U is the perfect companion for any outdoor project, expedition or journey. Its rugged body, crafted in Germany to defy the elements can withstand dust, shocks and depths of water up to 15m. The extra large sensor and first-class lens ensures pin-sharp, breathtakingly brilliant images; no matter what the conditions. The Leica X-U - Adventure photography starts here.

  • Shockproof and dust-sealed
    Here and now is the instant to capture the perfect picture – in a sandstorm in Morocco or on the sheer rock walls of the table mountains of Venezuela. Make the most of the moment! The Leica X-U gives you the freedom to dive into any adventure without a care in the world. Shockproof and dust-sealed, it defies all the elements and even takes short falls in its stride. The result: breathtaking pictures!

    The Leica X-U invites you to discover the wonders of breathtaking underwater worlds – at depths of up to 15 metres at 60-minute dives! Not only this, the practical underwater snapshot button enables it to capture the wonders of the underwater world at the press of a button. The fast prime lens with an underwater protection filter delivers pin-sharp pictures with perfect resolution of even the finest details.

    Rugged body
    Windblown snow, sandstorms or torrential rain – the X-U is the perfect companion, even under the toughest conditions. You concentrate completely on your subject. Your X-U takes care of the rest. Because the X-U is constructed with a perfectly sealed body with TPE armouring for ideal grip, a specially toughened protective cover for the LCD screen, top and bottom plates made from premium aluminium and a failsafe double locking system for the battery compartment and memory card slot. Whatever the situation: you’ll be ideally prepared for anything that comes.

    Stylish design
    The stylish appearance of the Leica X-U combines robust, extremely high quality materials with the classic looks of Leica X cameras. The result: The camera possesses pure style and an aura of photographic exclusiveness that is quintessential with Leica. Its eye-catching design, made in Germany, simultaneously emphasises what counts: simple handling and self-evident precision. Dials in anodised aluminium and the integrated flash above the lens clearly illustrate the enormous attention to detail.

    Controls and handling
    The minimised and intuitive handling of the Leica X-U gives you the freedom to react in a flash. The easy-to-use dials allow you to set the shutter speed and aperture in seconds. And, thanks to a wide range of practical automatic functions and a high-resolution, 3-inch monitor screen, the settings you need to capture the decisive moment are found in an instant, even in unfavourable light.

    APS-C CMOS Sensor
    The true character of the compact and lightweight Leica X-U is revealed by its exceptional picture quality. For its compact dimensions, the camera features an impressively large image sensor with a high resolution of more than 16-Megapixels. The APS-C format CMOS sensor guarantees extraordinary brilliance, natural colour rendition, and exceptional resolution of the finest details, even in low light. The result: pictures in true Leica quality.

    23 mm prime lens
    The Leica Summilux 23 mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens has an angle of view equivalent to a 35 mm lens in 35 mm format, with an extremely fast aperture of f/1.7 and exceptionally beautiful bokeh. Further highlights of the lens are an underwater protection filter and the ability to capture pin-sharp exposures from infinity to a closest focusing distance of just 20 cm. Outstanding resistance to stray light and flare makes the X-U the first choice for all lighting situations – no matter whether you are shooting architecture, landscapes, action or underwater scenes.

    Full HD video capability
    The full HD video function of the Leica X-U makes it easy to capture footage in cinema quality and preserve moving moments for eternity. The camera records video in a choice of 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 pixel resolution at 30 full frames per second in MP4 video format.
