Avid photographers will be excited to know that Leica has launched its first underwater camera, Leica X-U. Designed for the outdoors with a shatterproof camera body, the Leica X-U is able to survive a fall of up to 3.9 feet, making it one of the toughest cameras on the market. 

To stay waterproof, Leica X-U is equipped with a double-locking system that makes sure that water does not seep in and cause damage to the memory card and the battery. Most impressively, the 16.5 megapixel camera features an f/1.7 aperture so that means even in low-light situations, images turn out crisp and clear.

So, whether you’re about to book a snowboarding trip to Niseko or a diving holiday in Bali, the Leica X-U is a wise purchase for Instagram-worthy images, every time. 

The price:
HKD$23,000

Where to buy:
Store 2026, Podium level 2, IFC mall, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong. Tel: 2887 8000
