My Leica X1 Photo Gallery, The Leica X1 camera combined with an outstanding Leica lens it captures images of unmatched brilliance. Any way you look at it, the Leica X1 is a winner: It’s conveniently compact, its controls are intuitive, and it offers a full range of sophisticated automatic functions. Here is my little Leica X1 Photo Gallery
Leica X1 camera features:
Available-Light Capability – With the Leica X1, the creative use of natural light is possible even in poor lighting conditions – its largeformat sensor performs admirably at its maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200, and its fast lens always collects sufficient light. The X1’s tendency to minimize image noise means that image quality remains high long after the twilight hours begin. It’s perfect for photographers who wish to remain unobtrusive and discreet while capturing uniquely natural images.
Size Matters – If you demand premium image quality, a large sensor is the way to go. With its APS-C format, the CMOS image sensor of the Leica X1 is the same size as those employed in many upmarket DSLR cameras – and that in an amazingly compact form. Despite its 12.2-megapixel resolution,the individual pixels on the sensor are still large enough to collect light very efficiently. This ensures low image noise, a wide dynamic range, and accurate color differentiation, enabling the compact Leica X1 to deliver a level of performance comparable to that of professional cameras. That’s what makes it utterly unique.
An All-Around Genius – Countless iconic images in the history of photography were shot with a fixed focal length of 35 mm. This focal length is considered to be a classic for reportage photography, and it has lost none of its timeless charisma today. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is a true Leica lens with outstanding optical performance. Expressed in terms of 35-mm film format, it has the same coverage as legendary 35-mm focal length. The moderate wide-angle character of the lens conveys an agreeable impression distance when needed, but still allows photographers to get in close to capture details. The Leica Elmarit 24 mm f/2.8 ASPH. ensures that photographers won’t miss any shot, any situation, any nuance, or any exquisite detail.
Image quality, the X1 is BIG. However, whenever you need it, it also offers really easy, intuitive handling. If you choose to, you can leave all the technical details to the numerous automatic functions of the X1 – from precise autofocus to automatic exposure. This lets the photographer concentrate completely on composition and capturing the most meaningful moments. Even absolute newcomers soon find their way around. Never before has it been so simple to capture true Leica quality images.
Total Control At Your Service – Numerous automatic functions make the Leica X1 extremely fast when speed is paramount. However, its manual control options make it a lot more versatile. Both aperture and shutter speed can be selected manually with easily set dials on the top deck of the camera. This enables the photographer to maintain concentration on the creative aspects of composition. The precise focusing distance, white balance, and various other image-capture parameters can also be set manually. The X1 offers complete control over the creative process and a lightning-fast switch to automatic for rapid-reaction capability. Speed plus versatility: simply brilliant.
Autofocus Excellence – The autofocus system built into the X1 provides fast, ultra-precise focusing, enabling photographers to react in an instant. At the same time, the autofocus mode can be modified to suit the situation. Photographers have a choice of activating one or 11 AF segments and an additional high-speed mode for each.When taking photos of people, face-recognition mode allows you to concentrate completely on composing and framing the picture.
Super-Sized Display – The LCD monitor couldn’t be bigger on a camera this size: the brilliantly bright 2.7-inch display of the X1 almost fills the entire back of the camera and reveals the finest details even in bright environments. The live view function acts like an optical viewfinder, showing an accurate preview including all essential image information. The live mode also makes the X1 particularly versatile for taking shots from unusual perspectives.
