The Leica X Vario is equipped with a built-in flash and configured with a hot shoe for attaching an optional external flash unit. The camera is made in Germany from aluminum and magnesium alloys and trimmed with soft leather. A free download of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is available after registration.

APS-C CMOS Sensor
Large APS-C-sized 16.1MP CMOS sensor contributes to producing high-resolution, well-detailed still images and full HD video with minimal noise and notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 12500
Vario-Elmar 28-70mm f/3.5-6.4 ASPH Zoom Lens (35mm Equivalent)
The wide-angle to telephoto zoom range offers a variety of options for compositions, and the lens permits quick and easy focal length adjustments. Two aspherical elements are incorporated within the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce sharp overall imagery throughout the zoom range.

Simply moving the focusing ring on the lens from MF to AF mode activates the fast, precise, and virtually silent auto focus. The ring also allows you to set required focusing distance and focal length with ease
Fast, Versatile Autofocus
Choose from 1-point, 11-point, spot, and face detection options. Since the autofocus zone can be selected manually to define the desired plane of sharpness, you can compose shots exactly as you envision them
