Leica Camera presents a new special edition of the CL compact system camera.
Leica CL ‘Edition Paul Smith’ is now the second special edition created in collaboration with the British designer, Paul Smith. The classic black Leica CL has been given a design makeover by Paul Smith and now appears in a colourful and striped look.
The Leica CL ‘Edition Paul Smith’ is strictly limited to 900 sets for the global market and is on sale from today. In addition to the Leica CL, the special edition includes an Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens and a Neon Rope Strap with Paul Smith and Leica branding. The presentation box, created especially for the set, also contains a lens cleaning cloth styled to complement the camera and a certificate of authenticity.
The technical specifications of the camera and lens are identical to those of the serial production models. Together with a Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens, the CL is a particularly compact, high-performance set of equipment that is a great tool for photographers who appreciate image quality, an intuitive handling concept and iconic product design. With a length of just 20.5 millimeters, a weight of around 80 grams and fast autofocus, this wide-angle is the perfect lens to take along everywhere you go.
A 24-megapixel sensor, fast autofocus and a continuous shooting rate of up to ten frames per second make the Leica CL a good companion for spontaneous photography. Its outstanding features include an EyeRes electronic viewfinder with a latency time below the threshold of perception and a resolution of 2.36 million pixels. As the final image is visible in the viewfinder before the shutter release is pressed, users have complete control over the composition of their subjects. The camera can be connected with the Leica FOTOS App to enable direct transfer of pictures to a smartphone.
