Good, but outdated, camera. Panasonic L1 is identical for less money

reg_brown, Ebay
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The camera is definitely obsolete by now, but it still takes really good pictures, and is a joy to use. Note, despite what one other reviewer stated, this camera is identical to the Panasonic DMC-L1, with the exception to a SLIGHT variation in firmware. This one, basically, saves RAW files in a different format. The camera is big, bulky, not that comfortable to hold, and not a good value compared to its identical Panasonic cousin.

A strong, competent camera.

  • Summary: I've owned one of these for 6 years. In addition to the Elamarit zoom - a lovely lens - I have a Zuiko telephoto zoom and a pancake 25 (50 equivalent). The camera is a joy to handle and use - although large. Controls are intuitive and made for photographers - particularly to those of us who like rangefinders. Modern cameras have better pixel counts and faster frame rates and video. Bt this camera shoots RAW files and its CMOS chip does reasonably well in low light.

Leica retro camera with 21st Century electronics.

R. Ocampo "Artisan", Amazon
12 August 2007
  • Summary: First things first, Leica and Panasonic have been a team in the digital camera world in terms of Leica lens know-how coupled with Panasonic technology (just like Carl Zeiss lens is with Sony as well as Schneider Optics is with Samsung). Take note I said Leica lens "know-how" because Leica is not really the lens manufacturer here, but Panasonic is - being a licensed manufacturer of Leica lens. So to Leica purists, this isn't a Leica-assembled product.

Only for diehard Leica-brand fans

J. Park, Amazon
29 December 2006
  • Summary: After using & loving my Leica Digilux 1 for years, the Digilux 3 seemed like the perfect step-up to the DSLR world. The lens is fantastic & has been winning rave reviews, & I'm a big fan of the camera's analog controls & the retro body styling. After a week of using the Digilux 3 extensively while travelling, I'm extremely happy with my choice; the image stabilization, the bounce flash, the aperture ring on the lens, & the Live Preview LCD are all excellent features.

Good! But Still Expensive.

Ji Il Jeon "sixthfinger", Amazon
1 December 2006
  • Summary: Digilux 3 has almost every function that I want. Live view, Dust Reduction, Image Stabilization(Lens), Classical Design, 16:9 aspect, Flash Bounce, etc. However, its noise in ISO1600 is worse than I thought and Focusing Speed is a little bit slow (Especially in Live View mode, there's a delay). Also, it's much more expensive than its twins - Panasonic DMC-L1. I think this is good for amateur like me.

precio excesivo

  • Summary: Una cámara fascinante, con un precio desorbitado. El conjunto del cuero con el objetivo Leyca 14/45 y un f de 2.8, se pone en 2350 euros. Realmente a mi me tiene enamorado. Ya se sabe quien quiere un capricho , lo paga. Por sus caractericticas tecnicas, y resultados fotograficos no podemos decir que sea una cámara deslumbrante, pero si quieres trabajar en el sistema de 4/3, tienes cámaras de excelente calidad y magnifico precio.

Vale su precio en oro

  • Summary: Esta maquina es sencillamente sensacional, sólo si la tienes en tus manos, si haces fotos con ellas, si compruebas su increible lente, si ves el resultado de sus fotos te daras cuenta de que vale su precio. Lo mejor tiene un precio y hay que pagarlo. Cuando la tengas en tus manos lo puedes comprobar. Si quieres algun dato más te puedes poner en contacto conmigo y te cuento.
