Segment protected digital cameras are not too developed: the device is specific and not designed for the mass buyer. And those models that are presented in the market are very strong compromise where image quality is sacrificed protective functions. I decided to rectify the situation, Leica Leica X-U who presented with excellent shooting and high-grade security features.
Here everything is real: you can drop Leica X-U from a height of 1.22 meters, her dive into the water, to a depth of 15 meters and at the same time to do underwater shots (but not more than an hour), plus it can safely take in the desert and the beach - protection against ingress of dust, too, declared.
As for the technical side, the camera is equipped with a 16.5 megapixel sensor APS-C, high-quality 3-inch display, but fades in the sun. The lens is not removable, fixed-focus 35mm aperture and f/1.7.
In addition to photos, declared shooting video at 720p and 1080p at 30 frames per second.
As always with Leica shocking price: Leica X-U will cost $2950. Sales will start in early February.
