Leica D-Lux 6

The D-Lux 6 is Leica’s newest addition to their compact camera family. Typical of Leica, the D-Lux 6 is an extremely versatile digital camera that combines a fast lens with a newly-developed 1.7” CMOS image sensor that is particularly large for a compact model, and enables image quality.

The Leica D-Lux 6 is characterised by its classic styling, featuring a black anodised metal body with chrome highlights, and a clean, uncomplicated design. Simple handling and clearly laid out controls and menus make the camera simplicity itself to use.

The D-Lux 6 offers a comprehensive array of features, including automatic mode, manual setting options and Full HD video recording capability. Optional accessories, such as a new electronic viewfinder, provide even greater creative freedom in a wide range of photographic situations. Offering intuitive handling, outstanding image quality and classically elegant styling, the Leica D-Lux 6 makes the ideal companion for capturing special moments on any occasion.

Leica D-Lux 6 Specifications

The lens of the Leica D-Lux 6 is a newly designed and constructed Leica DC-Vario-Summilux 4.7-17.7 mm f/1.4-2.3 ASPH. With a zoom range of 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent), it offers an extremely practical range of focal lengths for a wide range of photographic applications, and makes the camera particularly versatile for everything from macro shots and wide-angle architectural and landscape photography, to photojournalism or portraits. With a faster lens than its predecessor, the D-Lux 6 is particularly suitable for ‘available light’ photography.

The new image processor developed for the D-Lux 6 enables photography at sensitivities from ISO 80 to ISO 12800. Images can be taken in a choice of four formats: 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 and 1:1, and viewed in both capture and review mode on the high resolution (920,000 pixel) 3” LCD screen. This especially high quality screen allows photographers to assess images both during composition and after capture, reliably and precisely.

The Leica D-Lux 6 Camera will be available in the UK at a suggested retail price of £600 in November 2012 from the Leica Store Mayfair, and other authorised Leica Premier Dealers.
