Maybe these felines will have better luck keeping their New Year's resolutions.
All of Leica's cameras are somewhat rugged, but only the Leica X-U was built to thrive in the elements — including underwater. This is evidenced by the dedicated "UW" mode that adjusts the white balance and activates distortion correction for the conditions, and the flash that's placed as close as possible to the subject. Overall, the body is waterproof to 50 feet, in part thanks to a fixed lens, sealed aluminum top plate, and grippy TPE coating. Otherwise, the camera is still recognizable as a Leica, with all the manual controls you'd expect, a reassuring heft, and a slight influence from Audi Design, who collaborated on the project.

The result of three years of research and millions of data points, the Casper Wave is a breakthrough in mattress design. Underneath its handsome exterior, you'll find the new, proprietary Natural Geometry System. It uses five layers of foam to mimic the natural contours of your body at 36 specific points, adjusting naturally to your shoulders and hips without sacrificing support, and keeping your spine properly aligned. Like the original, it uses open-cell foams to keep you cool at night. Designed and assembled in the USA.
