Leica DC Elmarit 1:2,8 lens
The CM1 features a unique 28mm lens designed by Leica, one of the world’s premier optics manufacturers. Unlike smartphone camera lenses, the Leica DC Elmarit Lens automatically compensates for and corrects common image distortions such as vignettes, flaring, ghosting and chromatic inconsistencies while increasing resolution and edge-to-edge sharpness.
Full Manual Control
The CM1 is designed to help you explore and unlock your creative potential. The lens-mounted manual control ring gives you quick access to key functions such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Further fine tune your images with the 3D level gauge, histogram, auto focus, manual focus assist and focus peaking.
Large, 1-inch Camera Sensor
The 1-inch 20-megapixel high-sensitivity MOS sensor is larger than what’s found on a smartphone, and rivals that of professional-grade compact cameras. The larger sensor delivers outstanding low-light performance with minimum noise levels—even at high ISO—giving you crisp, dynamic images rich in intricate detail and accurately-rendered soft focus.
RAW format: just like a negative
The CM1 captures pictures in both JPEG and RAW formats. RAW takes image data directly from the camera sensor, offering you a greater flexibility in terms of editing and post-production.
With 4K Pre-Burst, the CM1 captures 1.5 seconds of 4K footage with a single press of the shutter button, taking a total of 45 images. Scroll through them and select the one that best captures the moment.
Never miss a shot with 4K PhotoCapture. Shoot action scenes using 4K video and then choose the photo that best captures the scene. The CM1 lets you review footage, frame by frame, and then extract it as an 11.7” x 16.5” inch photo. Pictures are crisp, with minimal blur—even in low light conditions.
The CM1 not only records in 1080p Full HD video, but stunning 4K as well, for an even more intense viewing experience. The 3840 x 2160 (8.3 pixel) native resolution is four times greater than Full HD, delivering unprecedented image clarity with dazzling detail.
The Venus Engine features advanced image processing to achieve picture quality far beyond the standard found in most smartphones. Combined with a finely-tuned, high-performance sensor, the Venus Engine uses a combination of noise reduction systems such as Multi Process NR, Random Filter and Aperture Filter to capture color and detail in a natural yet precise manner.
