Leica, Sometimes more expensive is NOT better.

pathnak, Ebay

  • Summary: It is a nice camera, but does not justify the price even for the low price you pay on e-bay, My newer sony which I bought cheaper brand new takes better pictures in the low light. Leica is definitely better in day light use. Also the battery drains out so fast that you need to carry extra 1 or two with you, as without warning the low battery light starts blinking, especially if you are using the flash, even a little bit. You are paying for the name as I did.

Leica D-LUX 3 Digital Camera

JaimeLacayo, Rate it all!
3 September 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the camera expecting the best point and shoot around ( I shelled out $650 for it) and after having the camera for more than six months the pictures are average, not excellent. The images lack sharpness and the shutter is crazy slow, even in burst mode. Of course I wasn't expecting DSLR speed, but if this shutter where a car it would do 0-60 in 15 seconds. ALSO, why in the world is the camera now more than twice the price I paid for a few months ago?

Nice package, but RAW mode has its flaws...

  • Summary: Leica D-Lux 3 is another offspring of the Panasonic-Leica cooperation, surely benefiting both partners. D-Lux 3 is a re-badged Lumix LX2. Main asset of both cameras is clearly the Leica VARIO-ELMARIT Lens, quite sharp on both ends. Fascinating is the 16:9 ratio wide panorama mode. 10Mpix is a good resolution, helping to get over the usual noise and noise correction smearing of details, which is visible even at ISO 100. If sampled down to approx.

A good (not great) camera. Nice but not super-nice. Yet very chic & cool.

  • Summary: First off, let me tell you I have been shooting with a Canon20D with 3 different lenses for the past four years, my basis for review IS biased, opinionated, and thus the Leica is being forced to compete with an SLR worth 2-3x the value of itself. Gyeah! It's sort of a Leica. The camera is metal and has a retro-feel to it. I do like the simplicity of the dials. But it's made in Japan and it wouldn't take a die-hard camera-guru to tell you it's a souped up Panasonic.

User Review

Kevin Hendry, Cnet.co.uk

  • Summary: Very pleased with the camera in general. Sharpness of the pictures on computer are not the best by any means. Really should do something about that lens cover, two weeks old and it rattles loose already! The leather case is great and the camera feels solid, nice to feel some weight. Remembering to manually pop up the flash is still taking some getting used to.
  • Pros: Well built, solid, very clear screen
  • Cons: Poor lens cover, very loose, shame there's no view finder

Un adios muy a mi penar.

  • Summary: Después de tres meses con esta cámara intentando buscar el modo de obtener más calidad, hoy la he cambiado por una Canon G9 . Puedo asegurar que no ha sido una decisión fácil pero la lógica se ha impuesto al corazón. Siempre he sido un amante de esta marca germana pero este modelo me parece una auténtica tomadura de pelo, ruido, ruido y más ruido. Todo un desengaño.

Configuración optima D-lux3

Pepe, quesabesde.com
8 December 2007
  • Summary: Hola, hace tiempo que andaba detras de una d-lux3 y por fin me decidí. Ya la tengo hace unos días, y me parece alucinante. Pero como muchos de vosotros ya la teneis, me gustaría que me orientarais un poco acerca de la configuración optima para el día a día. No se... si por ejemplo habeis probado con y sin estabilizador, grados de reducción de ruido (mejor estandar o Low)... Un poco vuestras impresiones despues de haber trabajado con ella.

  • Summary: Dit is een degelijke camera, niet mijn eerste keus maar hij maakt redelijke foto's en voor zijn doen is de zoom ook niet verkeerd! Vind je deze beoordeling nuttig?
