Leica has been making some very high quality compact digital cameras for a number of years. These cameras aren't exactly known to be cheap, but they are known for high-quality photography. Leica has announced its latest compact digital camera called the Leica C.
This compact little digital camera is designed to be stylish while taking high-quality still shots. The camera features integrated Wi-Fi and NFC technology inside. That tech allows remote access to images and video from a smartphone or tablet and allows photos and video to be watched in real time from the connected device.
The Leica C is available in Champaign or bordeaux colors. The manufacturer also has a number of fashion accessories for the device including a number of cases of different sorts and pouches. The camera is built using rigid plastic and elastic silicone to help protect the device against scratches and damage from bumps.

It has a three-inch rear screen and features an integrated electronic viewfinder.
The camera has a number of automatic settings and has an ISO range of 80-12,800 with boost.
