Leica Makes Its First Adventure Camera And It Looks Incredible

It can go underwater

Lecia’s new camera is the first they’ve designed for outdoor and underwater use. As well as being as handsome a device as you’d expect from Leica, the X-U packs a 16.5-megapixel sensor, is fully waterproof to 49 feet and is shock and freeze resistant, and dust-sealed. There’s a 3-inch LCD screen on the back, protected by a hardened cover while the battery and memory card are protected by a double locking system.

Video-wise, it can shoot 1080p and 720p at 30fps in MP4.

For anyone who’s always fancied owning a Leica, but were worried about having to look after it properly – will the robust X-U tempt you?
