Reminiscent of the traditional Leica M-Design, the X2 is a true pleasure to behold. The camera’s robustly-engineered, full-metal chassis is reassuringly solid, while its leather-style finish is comfortable to the touch and provides a perfect grip. The superior finish, using the best premium materials, makes the Leica X2 a real classic on the inside and out.
The X2’s fast new autofocus feature enables extremely precise, and virtually silent, focusing. Perfect for situations where spontaneous reactions are essential for capturing the right moment. It adapts flexibly to the situation in hand, for example, with a choice of AF focusing segments or face recognition, allowing the photographer to concentrate exclusively on the subject.
The handling of the Leica X2 is simplicity itself. Its automatic functions are equally as impressive as its range of manual setting options. Thanks to the X2’s intuitive handling, photographers can concentrate completely on composition and the perfect moment to take their shot. Even inexperienced users will soon discover the sheer pleasure of photography with a Leica X2.
Professional image processing
In addition to JPEG files for immediate use, the Leica X2 also allows image recording in DNG format (Adobe® Digital Negative Format), offering extensive creative options when post-processing images. Leica X2 customers can download the professional workflow solution Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® free of charge, for Apple Mac® OS X or Microsoft Windows®.
The Leica X2 can be flexibly adapted to each photographer's individual needs with a range of intelligently designed and versatile accessories especially for the camera.
