Unrivalled. Rugged. Amazing Pictures
Combining a robust physical design with enhanced image quality, the Leica X-U (Typ 113) Digital Camera is their entrance into the world of tough, durable cameras. Still standing by their preference for classic and intuitive operation, this camera hallmarks a prime Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH. lens that delivers a 35mm equivalent focal length, along with a brilliant f/1.7 maximum aperture for shooting in difficult lighting situations. This sophisticated lens is paired with a big 16.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, which provides a broad sensitivity range up to ISO 12500, along with up to 5 frames per second continuous shooting and Full 1080p HD video capture. Enabling use of these imaging peripherals in less than ideal situations, the X-U (Typ 113) is distinguished from other Leica cameras by its anti-slip rubber exterior along with waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof engineering for shooting in harsh and underwater environments.
The X-U (Typ 113) features a tough, rugged construction that is designed to withstand harsh climates and underwater shooting:
The X-U (Typ 113) features a rugged, hardy construction that is engineered to withstand harsh climates and underwater photography:
Waterproof to depths of 49' / 15m for along as to 60 minutes of photography (IP68-compliant)
Shockproof to drops from 4' / 1.2m high (MIL-STD 810G, form 516.52-compliant)
Dustproof to preserve the camera's internal components
Anti-slip rubber exterior for ehnanced grip in wet environments
Integrated UW protective glass filter protects the front element.
16.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
While robust in its physical layout, the X-U is equally suitable with its imaging capabilities with the inclusion of a large 16.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor. This sensor features a sensitivity range from ISO 100 thru 12500 to handle working in a wide range of lighting conditions, and also handles up to 5 frames per second continuous shooting up to 7 frames using DNG + JPEG mode and Full 1080p HD video recording at 30 frames per second. In addition, a dedicated Underwater shooting system can be employed to adjust for unwanted color shifts when shooting in water.
