Leica has revealed its first ever outdoor and underwater camera, the X-U (Typ 113). As we're accustomed to with the German manufacturer, this new shooter doesn't leave much to be desired in terms of industrial design -- it's compact and super sleek, especially when compared to other ruggedized cameras out there. But what's most important here are the X-U's dustproof (sealed body), shockproof and waterproof attributes, which allow it to be submerged up to 49 feet without any consequences.

It's also packing a 16-megapixel APS-C sensor, 3-inch LCD screen and a 23mm, f/1.7 fixed prime lens (35mm equivalent). Now, don't expect to be shooting any 4K videos during your next adventure, since Leica's all-terrain device only does 720p and 1080p videos at 30 fps. ISO sensitivity, meanwhile, can reach a max range of 12,500.

The X-U will hit stores at the end of January for $2,950, so you should probably start saving up if you'd like one for yourself.
