Summary: I bought this because the digilux's are suppose to be rock solid, literally and top notch glass as is well known with Leica. It has lived up to the name. This is an old model that has been fun to play with. The pictures are beautiful and down loading them has worked smoothly with current computer systems.
Summary: I like the fantastic natural picture quality it is clearly better than my other 8 Mpix compaktcamera! I also like the design and the way the camera handles. Cant think of anything I dislike, spec. for that price! Bottom line is: Dont judge a digital camera by how many pixels it have...........
Great but QUIRKY Camera...Not for Everyone Though.

Summary: I recently bought this camera used because of the magical Leica name even though this 4 MP Model is almost five years old. I’m thinking that 10 MP with one of the small sensors that comes with these new automatic cameras is a cruel marketing joke. Used within it’s quirky constraints, the Leica Digilux 1 is capable of superb images. Pros: - Great Pictures in Natural Light. - Awesome Macros. - Built of die cast magnesium and like a 'tank.
Summary: I have been very impressed about the optical, as well as the casing material and digital features. This camera truly tends to professional taste while its simplicity to operate can be also be a fun hobby for the casual users. Oneof the few downside for me is the lack of integrated lens cover. This camera takes excellent natural light pictures and equally impressive shots in low light or at speed.
Excerpt: "...professional photographer and bought a Leica Digilux 1 in October 2002. Initially, I was pleased with the camera, it handled like a Leica M series film camera. After a lot of tests in different lighting conditions, I came to the conclusion that the camera is not really suitable for the professional or serious amateur. On the plus side, the Summicron lens is brilliant (although let down by the poor quality of the chip) and functions well. The ...
Pros: fast operation
Cons: no info in viewfinder, bad CCD quality, operating time
Summary: Con sensor enorme de 1/1.76 y 4Mp no hay mas que hechar la cuenta de 10Mp/cm2 densidad muy baja y poco ruid. Si lo unimos a su objetivo superluminoso de f:2.0 hace fotos donde otras hechan mano de la subida del ISO. Vaya calidad si sesabe manejar manualmente.
Excerpt: Questa macchinetta simpatica, pesantuccia, così rigorosa e un tantino retrò nel design, è stata acquistata dall'architetto che lavora con me per la documentazione "volante" che spesso si ritrova a dover fare. Avutala fra le mani, me ne sono subito inn ...
Summary: Perfecte lens, haarscherpe en kleurechte opnames. ook bij tegenlicht. Ik heb in Ghana zon 1000 opnames gemaakt. Alleen het flitsen stelt niet veel voor net als bij alle andere digitale compact kameras. Gelukkig is het mogelijk een externe flitser te gebruiken.
