A modern retro-styled camera with undeniable appeal

The Leica CL combines classic and contemporary features in a conveniently compact rangefinder-style design. It's an ideal camera for travel and everyday photography. Easy to use and completely unobtrusive, the CL is discreetly sized so you can keep a low profile when you're out shooting street scenes or candids.

Leica CL

The Leica CL combines a luxury design with state-of-the-art technology (strap not included).

The CL's high-speed Maestro II processor gives you high-resolution, low-noise imaging up to ISO 50,000. In continuous shooting mode, it can capture up to 10 frames per second at full resolution. All that processing power also enables crisp, accurate contrast-based autofocus with face detection and subject tracking. Focus peaking helps you achieve sharp manual focus when you want artistic control.

A powerful fusion of digital and mechanical, manual and automatic

A high-resolution electronic viewfinder gives you a bright frame for easy, ergonomic composition and shooting. You can also use the CL's 3" LCD touchscreen to compose your shots. Touch shooting and familiar gesture controls allow for seamless, intuitive navigation while shooting or reviewing images.

Top-plate dials give you smooth manual control over the CL without having to move your eye from its electronic viewfinder. But if you're more comfortable letting the camera call the shots, there are aperture and shutter priority shooting options to fall back on. Or you can go full auto and use one of the CL's preprogrammed scene modes to let the camera choose all the appropriate settings for your situation.

An ideal everyday lens

Leica describes their new Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH as the "perfect 'constant companion' for the compact Leica CL". Its lightweight "pancake" design makes it a perfect walk-around lens for anyone who prefers to keep a low profile.With a maximum aperture of f/2.8, this lens is great for creating radiant low-light images and crisp portraits with beautifully blurred backgrounds. Its effective focal length of 27mm lets you capture an entire scene in one shot. It's ideal for landscapes, street scenes, group photos, and interior or exterior architectural shots. Use it create captivating close-ups, too — this is one versatile lens you won't want to be without.

Smartphone compatibility adds convenience and control

Transfer images from the CL to your mobile device for instant sharing using the camera's built-in Wi-Fi. The Leica CL app has a remote control function that lets you set aperture and shutter speed and also triggers the shutter release for self-timer shots, group portraits, and shots taken from odd angles.
