Leica D-Lux 6 Camera First Impression Review



Here are a few pics taken on the Leica D-Lux 6. The Leica D-Lux 6 is set to hit the market later this fall. We got a sneak peak at Photokina in Germany and recently spent more time with the D-Lux 6. It's a great little camera with excellent low light capabilities but we'd like better battery life. It's basically the D-Lux 5 with all the improvements we were hoping for. This includes a faster lens, a new 1.7" CMOS image sensor, ND filter, a new aperture setting feature on the lens barrel and improved HD video codec.

The Leica D-Lux 6 is fast. Very fast. It still requires the addition of the bottom hand grip to give it that little extra heft and make shooting more comfortable. The D-Lux 5 had some banding issues we experienced while shooting video. The D-Lux 6 solves this problem and should offer even better overall results with the combination of the new lens and sensor.

If you've been looking for the perfect point and shoot camera in a compact format that offers brilliant image quality be sure to have a very close look at the Leica D-Lux 6. It's easy and fun to use, the Panasonic build quality is first rate and it's absolutely packed with performance to make it a true pocket sized wonder.

Based on our experience with the D-Lux 5, we imagine the D-Lux 6 will become the preferred camera for travel and casual use among the professional set as well as consumers that seek pro results in a point and shoot.
