Альтернативная отделка: LEICA X VARIO доступна в серебряном цвете
Alternative finish: the LEICA X VARIO is now also available in silver
Leica Camera AG, Solms, is now presenting a silver version of the Leica X Vario as an alternative finish for the digital compact camera ‘made in Germany’. The camera will be available from February 2014 with a silver body as an alternative to the discreet black of the standard model. In classic black or elegant silver, the Leica X Vario has the typical look and feel of a Leica – and sets standards in its class with its picture quality.
The particular highlights of the Leica X line include a high-performance, APS-C format, CMOS image sensor with over 16.5 megapixels (effective 16.2 MP) that is particularly large for this camera class. The Leica X Vario is the first compact camera to combine this professional sensor with a high-performance zoom lens – the Leica Vario Elmar 18–46 mm f/3.5–6.4 ASPH. – and, thanks to this, it delivers particularly brilliant exposures in all photographic situations.
For expansive interior shots, landscapes or portrait photography, the zoom range of 28 to 70 millimetres (35 mm equivalent) offered by the Leica X Vario opens up entirely new horizons for creative photography. Its versatility is further expanded by a full-HD video recording function that lets photographers capture the fascination of those special moments in moving pictures with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels at a frame rate of 30 full frames per second. A wide range of camera setting options and fast, precise autofocus further enhance the features offered by the Leica X Vario, a camera with a performance profile that offers even the most demanding photographers maximum creative freedom – for spontaneous shots as well as for carefully arranged compositions.
Leica also offers an extensive portfolio of accessories for the X Vario that can be added to the camera to adapt it to the requirements of individual situations. For example, the Leica EVF 2 Viso-Flex electronic accessory viewfinder with 1.4 megapixels and 90° swivel function is extremely helpful when shooting from unusual angles. The accessories also include a handgrip and finger loops in three different sizes that perfectly balance the weight of the camera in the photographer’s hands. An optional lens hood ensures the minimisation of reflections, and the Leica SF 24 D flash unit offers greater freedom for subject lighting. The portfolio of accessories is further complemented by a comprehensive range of premium-quality bags, cases and straps.
