Description

The Leica D-Lux 6 perfectly represents pre-eminent Leica quality in a compact camera format.
Its outstanding lens and the versatile capabilities for creative photography make it the perfect camera for capturing inspiring moments - in the typically brilliant image quality you expect from Leica. This new extremely fast lens makes it particularly suitable for available-light photography and creative experimentation with planes of focus and depth of field. Its full-HD video recording capability and numerous manual setting options can also offer even more creative freedom.

 

LEICA. MY LIFE
‘I can often work on a single detail for years. With photography, a single moment counts. And that’s why I need a high-performance camera that’s easy to use and offers me lots of scope for my ideas.’

André Georgi is a senior designer at AUDI. He has always been fascinated by details – a love that is also revealed in his passion for photography. His D-Lux 6 ensures that not even the tiniest detail remains undiscovered.


Fast and brilliant
The newly designed, extremely fast Leica DC-Vario-Summilux 4.7–17.7 mm f/1.4–2.3 ASPH. sets a new milestone in compact cameras with outstanding speed throughout its entire range of focal lengths from 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent). The combination of this lens with the new 1.7" CMOS image sensor enables the creation of absolutely brilliant, high-contrast images with even greater depth of field, more precise details and more natural colour rendition – everything the user expects from a Leica. Whether for portraits, landscapes, architectural and macro photography or the typical Leica wide-angle photo-reportage style – the D-Lux 6 is the perfect camera for capturing brilliant images.


Creative freedom
Shooting with a Leica means one thing in particular: the sheer joy of photography.
And that is precisely what’s offered by the intuitive handling and clearly laid out functions of the Leica D-Lux 6. A click wheel lets users quickly and easily select the distance, shutter speed and exposure corrections. The new aperture setting feature on the lens barrel enables even more direct control, as is the case with the new second dial: this enables manual focusing and the addition of an ND filter, for example, to allow slower shutter speeds for intentional motion blur even in intense light. Its smart snapshot mode and programme AE are ideal for spontaneous shots and are a valuable aid for less experienced photographers.

 

Classic design
Just like its predecessors, the new Leica D-Lux 6 combines classic elegance with premium materials.
Finished completely in black, only a few chromed elements set discreet counterpoints and refine the clarity of its design. A true Leica – at first sight. However, its premium-quality character is not defined by design alone. Its silky-smooth, black anodised exterior encases a rugged and compact metal body which ensures both robustness and excellent grip.

 

Accessories: a camera with system character
For even more photographic freedom, the compact D-Lux 6 can be complemented with an extensive range of accessories.
The new electronic high-resolution viewfinder (1.4 megapixel), the detachable flash unit perfectly matched to D-Lux cameras, the handgrip and other useful accessories transform the Leica D-Lux 6 into a camera with system character – for enhanced performance, greater creative latitude and even more of the unique pleasure of photography.

    Comments about Leica D-LUX 6 Digital Camera:

    Sure, we all want a Leica M with gobs of gorgeous German glass, but you gotta start somewhere and the D-Lux 6 is a very good place to start for aspiring street photographers. The DL6 is small and discrete (w/a bit of gaffer tape on that very bright red Leica dot) and can capture street scenes without drawing a lot of attention. Lots of bright bits to play with, but you'll do well to stick with the two monochrome settings for street work. The manual aperture ring makes it easy to "f8 and be there" with great results. The pretty bells and whistles are there if you're shooting the DC Cherry Blossoms, a Chinatown parade or making a homemade Xmas card. Sharpen your licks with the monochrome settings while you save your Euros for the magnificent M Monochrome.
