The Leica CL is an intuitive camera. A camera you can use immediately, and one that impresses with quality. All essential elements for photography can be found on the top plate of the camera. Aside from the high-resolution electronic viewfinder, this is where you will find two dials for setting the aperture, shutter speed ISO value and exposure compensation.
All these controls are located in positions that enable photographs to be taken without removing the camera from the eye. A top display instantly provides information about all relevant parameters. The shutter button impresses with a perfectly defined release pressure point. The Leica CL gives you the feeling of being in complete control over every photo you take.

With its archetypal design, the compact Leica CL sets a new milestone in the over 100-year history of Leica camera development. It’s classic design appearance is packed with innovations that serve one single purpose – the transformation of your photographic visions into reality. The Leica CL combines iconic design with state-of-the-art technology.


Light & compact

The compact, light and handy Leica CL is the ideal everyday companion. Always at hand and ready to capture the essence of every special moment – easily and unobtrusively.


Wi-Fi Connectivity

The integrated Wi-Fi module of your Leica CL enables wireless transfer of images to smartphones, tablets or computers. The Leica CL App for iOS or Android enables you to share your images via email or social media. With the remote function of the CL App, you can use your mobile device as an off-camera viewfinder, change exposure parameters or take pictures with your Leica CL by remote control.
