About the Leica X-2

The Leica X2 is the second generation posh point-and-shoot from Leica. Featuringa 16MP APS-C CMOS sensor which Leica claims produces very low noise, high dynamic range and accurate color rendering, the Leica X2 is said to have a new autofocus system that the company claims is fast and silent. Leica has changed the touch and feel of the shutter release and dials, added leather trim, a latchtrip for the pop-up flash, and an optional electronic viewfinder. (The X1 had an optical one). Other features include a 24mm f/2.8 ASPH lens (35mm equivalent: 35mm) and a 2.7-inch LCD monitor. The Leica X2 is bundled with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Leica X-2 Features

  • Leica autofocus: The Leica X2' autofocus system has also been enhanced, allowing the camera to adapt to all shooting situations with enormous flexibility and enabling fast, extremely precise and almost silent focusing.
  • Extensive control options: The camera's profile is complemented by numerous setting options from full manual control to automatic functions and an intuitive handling concept. These features make the Leica X2 the ideal premium-class compact camera for discerning photographers.
  • Large CMOS sensor: The CMOS image sensor of the X2 is unusually large for a camera in the compact segment. Despite its high resolution of over 16 megapixels each individual pixel on the sensor is very large, allowing the X2 to gather more light. Ther esulting benefits include low image noise, a high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation.
  • Iconic image instrument: The crop factor of the sensor is 1.5 in comparison with 35-mm film format, meaning that the Leica Elmarit lens of the X2 becomes a universal reportage lens with an effective 35-mm-equivalent f/l of 36 mm. This is considered to be a classic focal length amongst prime lenses and has captured innumerable iconic images.
  • Wide angle character: The moderate wide-angle character and natural rendition of dimensions by the high-performance lens of the X2 open up a broad spectrum of different options for capturing those decisive moments in outstanding, authentic and richly detailed picture quality.
  • Intuitive controls: As a result of its simple operating concept, the Leica X2 offers clearly laid-out functions and intuitive handling. At the same time, it offers an impressive range of automatic and versatile manual setting options.
  • Manual and auto controls: Thanks to the ease of switching between manual and automatic control, photographers can concentrate completely on composing their subjects and choosing the decisive instant to shoot in any situation.
  • Top deck dials: The dials on the top deck provide grip when setting the shutter speed and aperture. Moreover, changing the plane of focus, the white balance and other imaging parameters allows photographers to consciously influence the look or mood of their images.
  • Live view mode: In live view mode, the generously sized high-contrast 2.7" monitor offers photographers complete control at all times and a bright and detailed view, even in strong light.
  • Pop-up flash: The camera also features a pop-up flash that can be activated whenever an additional light source is required. If more lighting power and flexibility are required, the accessory shoe of the X2 offers full compatibility with the Leica SF 24D and SF 58 system flash units.
  • Stylized camera body: The Leica X2 is characterized by clear lines and focused design concept. The linearity of its design and its compact, handy form are reminiscent of the Leica M-cameras. This, in combination with its robust, all-metal construction and premium, high-grip leather trim makes the X2 a classic Leica camera in both looks and feel.
  • Optional accessories available: A new offering is the Viso-Flex high-resolution electronic accessory finder with 1.4 megapixels and a 90° swivel function for shooting from unusual angles. Also available is a bright-line mirror finder that can be mounted on the accessory shoe and ensures a bright and clear view at all times.
  • Bundled with Photoshop Lightroom: This digital image processing software offers a wide range of functions for the management, processing and presentation of digital images.
