Leica X-U (Typ 113)

 

The Leica X-U (Typ 113) is a ruggedized, waterproof compact camera with an SLR-sized image sensor that takes great photos, but it's very expensive.

Waterproof to 49 feet. Shockproof to 4-foot drops. Grippy rubber exterior. Cold shoe accessory mount. Bright f/1.7 lens. Sharp rear display. APS-C image sensor. Strong manual focus experience. Detailed images at high ISO.

Expensive. Slow autofocus. Tends to overexpose Raw images. Doesn't support true full manual control. Omits Wi-Fi.

Conclusions The Leica X-U (Typ 113) delivers image quality on par with an SLR in a compact body that can go deep underwater, without the need for an external housing. It stands alone in the market—but it's also priced like a Leica. Though when you...

Leica X (Typ 113)

 

The Leica X (Typ 113) prime compact camera has the brightest lens you'll find in its class, but it's expensive and has its share of quirks.

Prime lens with f/1.7 aperture. APS-C image sensor. Sharp rear display. Supports add-on EVF. Strong manual-focus experience. Detailed images at high ISOs. Sturdy build. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom license.

Expensive. Autofocus is on the slow side. Tends to overexpose Raw images. Doesn't support true full manual control. Omits Wi-Fi.

There's no integrated Wi-Fi. That's a bit of a surprise, as Leica's T mirrorless camera includes it as a feature, as does the top-end S (Typ 007) medium format camera. The X does support GPS, but it's not built-in. If you use the camera along with the...

Leica X (Typ 113) Review

 

The Leica X (Typ 113) is a 16.2 megapixel compact camera with an APS-C sized, 23.6x15.8mm CMOS sensor with a 3:2 aspect ratio, image-stabilized Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 lens with 10 elements in 8 groups (2 aspheric lens elements) that provides a focal...

As with the X-E model that we recently reviewed, the new Leica X (Typ 113) takes the two year old X2 camera as its starting point, but unlike the X-E, Leica have seen fit to upgrade a number of key areas, principally the lens, LCD screen and video...

Leica X-E (Typ 102) Review

 

The Leica X-E (Typ 102) is a 16 megapixel compact camera with an APS-C sized, 23.6x15.8mm CMOS sensor with a 3:2 aspect ratio, image-stabilized Leica Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 lens provides a focal length of 36mm in 35mm terms, and a 2.7 inch LCD screen. The...

The new Leica X-E (Typ 102) is essentially a cost-reduced version of the three year old X2 camera, offering exactly the same features and image quality at a slightly lower recommended official price. It's starting to look dated now in 2015, with the...

At the Photokina 2014 trade show in Germany, Leica unveiled a successor to its Leica X2, which remains in the product line under a new name as the Leica X-E (Typ 102). The followup Leica X (Typ 113) is still based around a 16.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS...

Leica X TYP 113

 

Quality optic. Dials are easy to use, and buttons are available for the primary settings. Makes it easy to set to Auto, aperture priority, shutter priority, and to set ISO and WB.

Manual control of the exposure involves moving the eye from the top plate, to the LCD screen, and vice versa.
