Leica X-U Camera

While most camera companies are going for the smallest action cam or the lightest action cam, Leica has earned themselves another claim to fame in the market: having the most expensive action cam with their newest product, the X-U.

But with the pricetag, buyers get a couple of unique features. For one, it’s able to operate in lower winter temperatures than the typical Leica camera usually can. Secondly, the company claims the camera can survive a fall of up to 3.9 feet without breaking. And finally, it’s waterproof, meaning it can be submerged in water up to 49 feet without any of its internals being damaged. Other than that’s, it’s very similar to the Leica T. It doesn’t have a viewfinder, but it has a 3-inch LCD screen, a 16.5MP APS-C censor, and a 23mm lens with a super fast f/1.7 aperture. The MSRP is expected to be at $3000. [Purchase]
