This Leica's ready to take a dive

id="cnetReview" section="rvwBody"> Leica It seems like it's the season for APS-C enthusiast compact announcements: Leica follows on the heels of Fujifilm, adding another model to its X-series fixed-lens cameras. The new Leica X-U is essentially the Leica X with a body retrofitted to be water- and weatherproof, the first the company has offered.

Like the X, it incorporates a 16.2MP sensor and Galaxy a10 specs a fixed focal-length 23mm f1.7 lens.

As you'd expect, you pay a premium for the ruggedizing. It's $2,950/£2,400 compared with $2,300 (£1,550, about AU$2,700) for the plain-old X. Sorry, Australians, it doesn't look like it's been announced there yet, Huawei Mate 20X 5G antutu mate 20x specs but its US price directly converts to AU$4,300; the UK price converts to AU$3,200, however, so hopefully it won't be quite so expensive when or if it becomes available there.

Leica 'Proof specifications:

Waterproof to 49 ft/15m for up to 60 minutes of shooting (IP68-compliant)

Shockproof against falls from 4 ft/1.2m (MIL-STD 810G, method 516.52-compliant)

Dustproof (IP68 rating indicates completely dust-sealed)

However, despite Leica's encouragement to take it out in the snow, it's not cold-proof: huawei honor 20i specs it has the same operating range as most other cameras, 32°-104° F/0°-40° C.
