Our CWS Holiday Gift Item #2 is an example of how luxury and practicality can be combined into a beautiful, cutting edge camera that you just HAVE TO "C"! (Ok, I'll quit with the "c" comments!)


Despite its extremely compact form, the trendy 12.1 megapixel Leica C features an excellent zoom lens, which offers almost unlimited opportunities for creative expression, even in low light. At the same time, the 7x zoom (28-200mm in 35mm configuration) is outstanding for capturing intimate portraits, expansive interiors, and fascinating landscapes. The Leica C has an unusually large sensor for a pocket-sized camera, guaranteeing wonderfully sharp pictures with outstanding contrast. In combination with precise optics, the imaging quality delivered is truly exceptional. With an extremely fast autofocus and burst rate of up to ten frames per second in continuous shooting mode, the Leica C can capture even the tiniest details.

The Leica C is also the first Leica to feature built-in Wi-Fi and an NFC (Near Field Communication) module for easy connectivity. With the free Leica C Image Shuttle app you can utilize the Wi-Fi connection to instantly download images to your smartphone or tablet and then share them on social media sites. In addition, the Wi-Fi connection and app allow you to use your smart device as a remote control for the camera, adjusting aperture, shutter speed, zoom, focus, video and several other functions, including shutter release..Full HD 1080 video is provided in both the AVCHD and MP4 formats and a built-in stereo microphone is also supported

The Leica C records video with fantastic resolution of even the finest details in full-HD quality. Full HD 1080 video is provided in both the AVCHD and MP4 formats and a built-in stereo microphone is also supported. A large monitor screen, an electronic viewfinder and a selection of creative modes offers numerous options for the realization of creative ideas - keeping the photographer in complete control.  The Leica C is supplied with the professional still picture and video processing software, Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 5, offering exceptional creative freedom in image manipulation. It optimally ‘develops' the RAW image files from the sensor of the Leica C in the best possible quality. All parameters can be refined in post-processing. This truly is one of the most impressive cameras we've seen in a long time! It is available in Gold Or Red for $699.99 and we're sure that we will not have enough stock to satisfy the demand, so call, e-mail or come in to take a look or even better, join us on Sunday December 15th for our "Leica Day" here at Camera Wholesalers.

BTW, if you've been following Beth Wethland's series on how to photograph sports, you can find her latest installment here, which talks about which camera settings to use.: http://www.merakoh.com/2013/12/06/what-camera-settings-do-you-use-to-shoot-sports/
