Leica Unveils A New Small But Powerful Compact Point-And-Shoot: Leica D-Lux 7
Posted December 12,2018 in Science and Technology.
The new Leica D-Lux 7, which shares many features and capabilities with the Panasonic Lumix LX100 II, is a small, lightweight but powerful point-and-shoot. Being a Leica, it's pretty pricey, but it features some nice updates and upgrades, like a 17-megapixel Fourthirds image sensor, USB-C charging and Post-Focus software effects (a powerful feature, introduced by Panasonic, that allows you to refocus a photo after the shot).
The D-Lux7 also has a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a touchscreen display. It includes quick access to automatic exposure modes and a one-touch aspect ratio switch and comes with both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, too, to quickly transfer your images. The new Leica is also very versatile and can fire a burst of photos at 11 frames per second.
The D-Lux 7 has a nice range of video functions as well: it can record 4K-HD-resolution video at a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second as well as 1080p at 60 fps, and 100 Mbit in MP4 and AVCHD-format, "ensuring the highest fidelity of color and quality in your vldeos," according to Leica.
