German camera manufacturer Leica has recently launched its first-ever adventure camera, marking the brand’s foray into the growing market of all-terrain travel gears. Named the Leica X-U, the 16 megapixel camera comes with all the fine qualities one can expect from the historical brand, but with an added ability to take amazing shots in unusual circumstances. Whether exploring Raja Ampat’s rich underwater biodiversity or going on desert safaris in Dubai, the camera is easily a photography enthusiast’s best bet to taking beautiful high-quality photographs during an adventure-packed holiday.

Not only is the camera water-resistant (users can take it as deep as 15 meters underwater for up to 60 minutes), it is also dust-resistant, enabling it to work in sandy terrains. What’s more, the device also comes with the ability to take snapshots in extreme temperatures, built to endure in 0 to 40 degrees Celsius weather. Beyond pictures, the camera is equipped with a full HD video function, allowing users to record moving images at 30 full frames per second in an MP4 video format, with a choice of 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
