Questionable Quality

Milwaukee Wayne "Milwaukee Wayne", Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: Within 9 months of intermittent use, one of the neck strap eyelets fell off of the camera. The camera had to be shipped back for repair. Within 12 months of purchase, a firmware update became available. After applying the update, the camera behaved erratically and had to be shipped back for repair. Just today (18 months after purchase) I noticed that the small, sliding, battery holder is slightly askew. The camera will likely need to be shipped back for repair.

build is very disappointing

  • Summary: IQ is good with the Leica taste. The design and appearance is nice. The build is very disappointing. The whole thing is made of plastics. Feels like a disposable toy camera. No comparison to M9, not even to my D-Lux 3 that has metal skins. Hope it will last for a while. Big disappointment.

Leica X1: sssslllooooooooooooow....

Attilio, Amazon

  • Summary: I am not happy. For this kind of money I was expecting (almost) the best. It's a very slow camera from every point of view: slow LCD refresh rate, slow LCD playback, slow autofocus that tends to fail in low light. Anyone who's considering buying this camera knows that there is no OIS or built-in viewfinder: I am sick of those "old fashioned" photographers who claim that such things aren't needed by "real photographers".

Leica x1

Kenneth Maguire, Amazon

  • Summary: The Leica X1 had mix reviews and after buying it I can see why. The image quality is impressive for a compact camera, it's performance can mach any DSLR cameras, with the 24mm fix lens it has taking Leica to the good old days of getting close to your subject. The only thing that is wrong with this camera is the focusing, I don't know why people are saying which viewfinder is the best for the Leica X1simply because there is no viewfinder for it.

  • Excerpt: Je cherchais pour mon activité pro, un petit compact expert avec une superbe qualité d'image. Ce Leica est parfait et fidèle à la réputation (justifiée) de la marque. Seul bémol : pas de vidéo (mais ce n'est pas le but d'un tel appareil) et un écran LCD un peu petit.

  • Excerpt: Top foto's, voor een compact camera van deze kwaliteit. De foto's zijn tegen provisioneel aan, natuurlijk de fotograaf die er achter staat. Zeer scherp Helder van kleur en natuurlijk. Klein, makkelijk om mee te nemen. Ik weet waar over schrijf, bijna alle merken gebruikt.

Espectacular, pero.....

Eric, quesabesde.com

  • Summary: Al fin he podido probarla, lo que más impresiona es su excelente aspecto, sus acabados. Igual su calidad de imagen, semejante a la que daría una Nikon D90 reflex. Lo malo son sus numerosos "peros": 1) precio altísimo solo por su "glamour", 2) levedad de retención de sus diales, 3) pantalla muy muy por debajo de los altos "estándares" de calidad, 4) suma lentitud de encendido y de enfoque, 5) focal fija..... ¿a dónde va a parar todo esto?....
