Leica D-Lux 4 Review

What Digital Camera
25 July 2009
  • Summary: Stylish, compact, and capable of yielding impressive results, the D-Lux 4 is a joy to use for the most part. Some of the smaller yet still powerful features – such as 1:1 ratio shooting – will see traditionalists kept happy, and the 24mm wideangle lens is of excellent quality.
  • Pros: Lens quality, build quality and design, Raw shooting and Capture One 4
  • Cons: Costly, limited zoom range

Leica D-Lux 4

Ken Rockwell

  • Conclusion: Would I buy one? No way. I am much more impressed with the M9 and X1 . Should you buy one? Absolutely! Marketing arrangements like reselling Panasonic cameras is what helps Leica make enough money so that they can continue to develop fantastic new lenses like the 35mm f/1.4 SUMMILUX ASPH and 18mm...

Review: Leica D-Lux 4

2 December 2008
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: A gussied up Lumix at double the price. Fiddly controls in manual mode. Viewscreen less sharp than resolution suggests.

[REVIEW-LEICA D-LUX 4 compact camera]

2 May 2009
  • Summary: Eagle-eyed readers will have noted that all the forgoing is the same as for the Panasonic Lumix LX-3. They are virtually identical cameras. Only the body shape is different. Oh, and the price! $829 for the Panasonic and $1650 for the Leica.
  • Pros: Image quality at low ISO speeds is exceptionally fine. At ISO400 a little noise is apparent, but we found that shooting RAW and applying a small amount of noise reduction in Adobe Camera RAW removed the grain. Response times are very fast. The Leica branded lens, with its modest zoom range, is su...
  • Cons: The lack of an integrated optical viewfinder is a disappointment. We would have settled for a smaller LCD and an in-body viewfinder coupled to the lens zoom.

Leica D-LUX 4 digital camera

Good Gear Guide.au
26 March 2009
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Looks and feels good, full set of manual features, useful scene modes, built-in image stabilisation
  • Cons: Distortion at wide angles, some chromatic aberration, noticeable noise above ISO 400

The Age
5 February 2009
  • Excerpt: LOWDOWN: This is a 10-megapixel camera with a 24-60mm (film equivalent), fast (f2-f2.8) zoom lens. It has effective optical stabilisation. Construction quality is outstanding, with most important controls accessible on the camera body.

Leica D Lux 4 Safari – La caccia è aperta

24 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Bella è bella. Ma suona un po' come un “vorrei ma non posso” questa edizione mimetica di Leica, che vorrebbe rievocare per un'utenza consumer gli scenari safaristici della sorella maggiore Leica M8.
