Leica D-Lux 4

 

We take a look at the Leica version of the Panasonic LX3.

Outstanding build quality ; Superb lens ; Extremely fast

Very expensive

The Leica D-Lux 4 is the ultimate luxury compact camera. It is extremely expensive, and some of that price is paying for the legendary Leica name, but nonetheless is is a superb camera, with a simple but classically beautiful design as well as...

Leica D-LUX 4 review

 

Leica's D-LUX 4 10.1Mp compact digital camera has plenty of style but doesn't forego functionality. It's more advanced than a basic point-and-shoot camera. The camera caters to serious users who want a break from carrying a D-SLR, but still want the...

Overall, the Leica D-LUX 4 compact digital camera is a very nice piece of kit. It looks very stylish, and it takes clear and neutral-looking photos. It has good speed, plenty of manual settings, and its scene modes are very useful. However, you do have...

Leica D-Lux 4

 

If you're serious about your pictures but wary of lugging around your SLR, you've had an embarrassment of riches in the last couple years, thanks to an array of plush, full featured point-and-shoots. And now yet more updates have arrived: The Canon...

Vivid and accurate colours. Gorgeous leather accessories which are optional extras. Long warranty. Three aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, and 16:9). A pop-up flash that's manually deployed: No more unintended bursts. Solid battery life

A renovated Lumix at double the price. Fiddly controls in manual mode. Viewscreen less sharp than resolution suggests

Leica D-Lux 4

 

Leica's first compact camera boasts a 1:1.63-inch CCD, 10.1-megapixel sensor. Meauring 109x60x27mm and weighing 228g, there's enough room to house a three-inch TFT display on the back, a 50MB of in-built memory, a memory card slot (SD, SDHC, MMC),...

Hold the front page, the D-Lux 4 is the best compact digital camera on the market right now... if you can afford it. If not, check out the Panasonic DMC-LX3, which is identical apart from the Leica badge (and a few internal tweaks) but costs £250 less....

Looks and feels good, full set of manual features, useful scene modes, built-in image stabilisation

Distortion at wide angles, some chromatic aberration, noticeable noise above ISO 400

Leica's D-LUX 4 looks very stylish and it takes clear and natural-looking photos. It has good speed, plenty of manual settings, and its scene modes are very useful. However, you do have to forego a sizable chunk of your income to procure it.

HD video. Awesomely vivid and accurate colors. Gorgeous leather accessories optional. Long warranty. Three aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, and 16:9). A pop-up flash that’s manually deployed: No more unintended bursts. Solid battery life

A gussied up Lumix at double the price. Fiddly controls in manual mode. Viewscreen less sharp than resolution suggests
