• If you value style but not weight when you're searching for great images, you'll love the ultra compact Leica C-LUX 2! It sports a classic metal body and measures just 3-1/2 x 2 in, it fits into even the smallest pocket. The elegant exterior design is unmistakably Leica and is matched by an immaculate standard of optics and digital technology inside.
The high-speed wide-angle 28 mm zoom lens takes stunning, space-grabbing shots. The optical image stabilizer and the intelligent exposure control prevent camera shake and ensure optimum definition. The 7.2 megapixel CCD sensor enables superlative prints up to poster size.
The extra large 2.5" display, the image stabilization and short shutter delay of the Leica C-LUX 2 all guarantee carefree photography with high-quality results. Fast, discreet snapshots captured on the fly or picture perfect compositions at twilight or in other tricky conditions - everything is possible with the Leica C-LUX 2.
The VARIO-ELMARIT zoom lens retracts entirely into the camera body at the flick of the 'off' switch. Whether you're a partygoer, beachcomber, city stroller or nature lover, the Leica C-LUX 2 is always a dependable companion - any time, any place, you'll never miss another photo.
