January 10, 2019

The new Leica D-Lux7 is a compact mid-size mirrorless digital camera from the collaboration between Leica and Panasonic. It is technically the same as Panasonic LX100 II but with a different but more compact body.

The D-Lux 7 delivers excellent photo by housing a fast aperture (f/1.7–2.8) and a long focal length of 10.9 - 34 mm (24–75 mm equivalent) with its built-in lens.  With a large 17-megapixel 4/3rd sensor, the D-Lux 7 capture photos in full resolution, independent of the selected aspect ratio (3:2, 4:3, 16:9) with greater details in every image. This is because the larger sensor is able to capture more light.

The viewfinder is a very important tool for the photographer to accurately frame and compose the picture. The D-Lux 7 features a high resolution electronic viewfinder with 2.76 million pixels for extremely precise framing and a 3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1.24 million pixels.

Using the touchscreen enables the photographer to both conveniently control the D-Lux 7 and reliably judge the quality of an image straight after shooting it.

The Leica FOTOS app is compatible with the D-Lux 7 connecting via WiFi. The app enable photographers to remotely capture unforgettable moments, transfer, edit and share images quickly, easily, and on-the-go. With the app in the smartphone, photographer can share images via social media conveniently and quickly.
