Dream Big. Pack Small.

The Leica CL represents the juxtaposition of iconic design and advanced technical standards.

This portable system camera is a versatile everyday tool for photographers that delivers pristine image quality and sensory satisfaction.

  • Image quality

    A high-resolution, 24 MP sensor, a Maestro II series processor and fast autofocus with 49 metering points guarantee the picture quality so typical for Leica.

  • EyeRes® Viewfinder

    Thanks to a resolution of 2.36 million dots and a practically imperceptible latency time, the digital viewfinder of the Leica CL allows complete control of image composition in every situation.

  • Design

    The iconic design of the compact Leica CL is a further milestone in the over one-hundred-year history of camera development at Leica.

  • Handling concept

    The Leica CL is an intuitive tool. All controls are located in positions that enable photographs to be made without taking the camera from the eye.

  • Mobility

    The particularly light and compact Leica CL is ideal to take everywhere, and is always ready to fulfil your creative needs in every situation.

  • Connectivity

    The integrated Wi-Fi module enables wireless transfer of pictures to smartphones, tablets or computers. Thanks to this, the camera also works perfectly with the Leica CL App.

As it turned out, everything was possible and the camera was perfect.’ Anatol Kotte, well-known for his intense portraits of actors, actresses, musicians and politicians, accompanied Jorge González a whole day long – the outcome is a wonderfully multifaceted series that shows not only the public face of the star, but also reveals the real person behind the media hype that surrounds him.
