Two icons of design meet in the new, limited rendition of the Leica CL.
The CL "Edition Paul Smith" was designed by world acclaimed British designer Paul Smith, who is known for his eccentric, vibrant style. The colourful makeover features bold accent colours, a striped base and unique design elements, creating a second to none edition yet again.
To further give the camera that Paul Smith edge, the top plate features an instantly recognisable sketch and above the display there's a reference to one of his most famous quotes: "Many people look, but often they don't see".
As with any true Paul Smith item, his signature graces the bottom plate, just below the screen.
A unique rope strap and a specially designed cleaning cloth complement the set, which is packaged in a uniquely designed box.
The special edition's technical aspect are identical to the standard Leica CL, featuring a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, 4K video resolution and an interchangable lens system (L-Mount).
With the use of an adapter, the CL is fully compatible with the range of M lenses, giving you even more opportunity to customise your Paul Smith CL look.
The Paul Smith edition is limited to 900 pieces worldwide, and each camera is individually numbered.

The CL was created to capture special moments without interrupting them. It brings to life the perfect balance between compact design, mechanical precision and state-of-the-art technology.
One of the CL's most sought-after features is the interchangeable lens. With seven different lenses currently in production (from super-wide-angle to telephoto), the CL caters to all types of uses.
Additionally, when paired with a specialised adaptor, the CL can mount the whole range of Leica M-System lenses. That makes the camera infinitely customisable and a compact addition for any Leica M owner.
When it comes to handling, the CL is incredibly intuitive and minimal. Two dials on the top of the camera allow the user to adjust the essential settings, and a top-down illuminating display makes it easy to see these settings at a glance. This is particularly convenient when shooting in situations where the bright LCD screen may be disruptive.
A clear, high-res viewfinder with adjustable diopter settings completes the experience and makes composing your images easy, even in extreme light conditions.
The 24-megapixel, APS-C sensor is made to deliver on crisp images and allows for videos in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. Paired with an ultra-fast autofocus, the CL is equally fit for capturing high-energy stunts as it is eternalising bustling family gatherings.
The CL is one of the most celebrated cameras in the APS-C range on the market today, no matter what use.
