Summary: I wanted to try shooting with a Leica, and I bought a used digilux 4.3 off Ebay for $135. I've taken around 200 photos in the past two days, with impressive results. Its alright that its from 2000 (or is it 1999?), and only 2.4 MP, it still takes great photos. Solid construction, everything functioning great after 14 years. If there is a downside, its the memory and battery life. HOWEVER its not a deal breaker.
Summary: I recently acquired a Used L DL4.3 , and I am very impressed with both the Camera , and its general qualities ! Form , Fit and Function have produced a Low Pixel device , but a real producer of quite good pictures ! Slow in comparison to current Market Cameras , but it has a general Feel of " Leica , irrespective of Fuji ' s design , and production ! I paid $125. on ebay , and am really enjoying My " Find " !
Summary: This little camera delivers awesome high resolution pictures in three scaleable sizes and video. Although no longer available on open market it can be found on the web through camera dealers. With the 32MB smartmedia card one can take from 18 high resolution (1700KB)photographs to 500 basic (50KB) resolution photographs. Downloading is fast with USB and Exif Viewer.
Summary: Regardless of what the numbers say, this camera is a (roughly) 2.1 megapixel system that uses a process similar to television "line doubling" to effect its claimed 4.3 megapixel resolution. While that is true, it also true that the pictures it takes are plenty sharp without "doctoring" and will easily enlarge to 5" x 7" without becoming grainy. This is in no small part a result of excellent optics.
Summary: I asked for this camera for christmas a got it(horay)! The main reason was that I thought it had the highest resolution 4.3 megapix. In fact it does not and Fuji who made it have had to change their advertising which has been called misleading. It is like a 2.3 megapixal but used some funny formula to produce data files that have 4.3 megapizals, but the original picture does not.
Summary: This is indeed a great camera to use, full of features and provides high quality images. If you are having problems finding this model it is also available as the Fuji Finepix 4700 Camera. Fuji designed, and manufactures this camera.
Summary: This is a great digital camera. It has a nice display screen (which is important since the view finder is very small and hard to use) but the camera is designed nicely to be held in the palm using the display screen. They supply a 32 meg smart media card and rechargable batteries/charger. Which is needed because they run out fast using display window.

Summary: After only one week of using the Leica Digilux 4.3 I'm extremely pleased with the quality and features of this camera. After using a Kodak 260 for 2 years with great satisfaction, the Leica is a better overall camera at the same price.
Summary: I think this is a great product.Very easy to carry and 4.3 Megapixels gives beautiful shots. It has 32 mb memory which helps in storing large quantitities of high resolution pictures! Colors are Great and usability is very easy.Best part is that it uses 2 AA recharghable battries which are light so keeping a spare set for rotation is not a hassle.
