  • Wireless Multi-Camera captures multiple scenes simultaneously by connecting up to two smartphones.
  • For a more natural looking image, a new Active Contrast feature equalizes contrast, and the HDR Movie mode enables a wider dynamic range between dark and bright areas.

4K Premium Image Quality

High-definition 4K shooting gives you highly natural, realistic images. And 4K PHOTO captures those decisive moments. You get uncompromising picture quality at all times with the remarkable LEICA Dicomar lens.

4K High-Precision AF

Enjoy high-speed, excellent tracking performance and stability. With Custom AF, you can also choose from three focus modes.

Active Contrast

Automatically equalizes the gradation in response to the brightness distribution within the image.

4K Cropping

When shooting in 4K, your subjects stay framed, without blurring, because you can edit the images in the camera and save them in Full-HD.

Cinema-Like Effect

Allows Dolly Zoom and other professional-like shooting techniques used in cinema films.

Wide 25mm and Optical 24x Zoom Lens

The New 4K lens covers the range from 25mm wide-angle to 600mm tele with a 24x zoom achieved by a 4-Drive Lens System. The stunning wide-angle setting not only fits large groups of people and background images into narrow locations but is also convenient for taking selfies with a rotatable LCD.

Three Technology Optical Image Stabilization

5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S. +

Uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring all the way from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots.

Adaptive O.I.S.

Automatically optimizes the O.I.S. effectiveness by adjusting the O.I.S. mechanical control to various shooting positions, conditions, and user characteristics.

Ball O.I.S.

Reduces wear on the drive section, and greatly improves correction for small-amplitude hand-shake.

Level Shot Function

Automatically detects and corrects the tilting of captured images.
