CL (Urban Jungle) + Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH.
APS-C Mirrorless Digital Camera + Wide-Angle Lens Kit
In this kit, the minimalistically functional APS-C-format Leica CL is paired with the equally compact Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH. wide-angle lens. This Germany-made limited edition "Urban Jungle" Leica CL is designed by Jean Pigozzi, a French-Italian photographer, entrepreneur and art collector. Matched with the multi-design carrying strap, the sleek, compact mirrorless digital camera is the ideal camera for photographers exploring the urban jungle. Only 150 sets are produced.
The CL features a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Maestro II image processor combination to offer intuitive control and a versatile range of imaging capabilities. Capable of shooting high resolution stills at up to 10fps and UHD 4K video recording at 30fps for ultra-high resolution playback thanks to the sensor and processor pair, the CL features a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-50000 for working in a variety of lighting conditions. The available focus peaking helps to keep videos in focus. A mechanical shutter provides precise speeds up to 1/8000 secs while the option for full-time electronic shutter enables a top speed of 1/25000 sec as well as noiseless operation. The upgraded contrast-detect autofocus system of the CL offers quick and accurate performance, with 49 selectable points to ensure the shooting of sharp imagery.
Complementing the imaging capabilities, the Leica's all-metal body, complete with anodised aluminium top and bottom cover, incorporates a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder with 0.74x magnification for bright and clear eye-level viewing. In addition, a rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD enables the use of familiar gesture controls for intuitive navigation during shooting or imagery review. Furthering the user-centred seamless shooting experience, all essential controls with customisable buttons in the each centre of two dials, along with an additional display that provides information of pertinent settings, are conveniently located on the top plate. Wireless sharing and remote camera control from a linked mobile device is facilitated by the free Leica App and enabled by the built-in IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi.
The CL's mirrorless L-bayonet mount offers compatibility with both full-frame SL-series and APS-C TL-series glass. Further compatibility with lens of various mount can be availed by the use of suitable adapters.
In this kit, the CL is complemented by the black Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH. prime lens that is designed for the APS-C-format Leica L-mount mirroless cameras and provides a 27mm equivalent focal length. Optically, the lens features four aspherical surfaces to aid in suppressing spherical aberrations and distortions for improved clarity and sharpness. Measuring just two centimeters in length and barely weighing anything at 80g , the ultra-compact and ultra-light form factor of the lens is well-suited for travel and everyday photography. Additionally, its autofocus design permits full-time manual focus override for refined control.
