The Leica D-Lux features a Four Thirds sensor with a diagonal measuring precisely one-half of the 35 mm format diagonal, and a C Vario-Summilux 10.9–34 mm f/1.7–2.8 ASPH. zoom lens is perfectly matched to this large sensor. With an impressive sensitivity range to ISO 25600 thanks to particularly large pixels, it makes the best of available light and delivers pictures with natural colours and exceptional quality, perfect for available-light photography.
An integrated Wi-Fi module provides remote control for the D-Lux from a smartphone or tablet, which is particularly useful when the photographer wants to be in the picture. The Leica C Image Shuttle app required for this function can be downloaded free of charge and installed on iOS or Android devices. An integrated NFC (near field communication) module quickly and easily sets up a Wi-Fi connection with an NFC-compatible smartphone when the phone is held close to the camera.
Sometimes videos say more than still pictures. The Leica D-Lux is ideally prepared to capture such moments – on video in 4K, the high-definition digital recording format with four times the resolution of full HD. Recording and saving videos is simplicity itself – and the quality is no less than breathtaking. In fact, it’s so good that single moments from videos can be selected and kept as photos.
