This week on DDTV, Leica Love, we look at the Leica D-LUX (Typ 109) http://www.digidirect.com.au/digital_cameras/leica/leica_d-lux_typ_109_digital_camera Party time & Lenny Kravitz’s LEICA M-P 'CORRESPONDENT' - DigiDIRECT TV Ep 099; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kd4-kB5BLM “The black Leica D-LUX (Typ 109) Digital Camera is a compact point and shoot camera that is built around a large, 12.8MP 4/3" MOS sensor which allows for greater depth of field than is possible with smaller-sensor cameras, plus more effective light-gathering ability per pixel. As a result, subjects can be better isolated within the frame and more details are apparent in darker areas of the image with less noise. The 4/3" 12.8MP sensor provides high-resolution output, and with its bright, optically-stabilized DC Vario-Summilux f/1.7-2.8 lens, as well as an ISO range expandable from 100 to 25,600, the D-LUX (Typ 109)'s ability to perform under low-light conditions is further enhanced. Even during sunny days or when shooting with a flash, the effect of the built-in lens's wide apertures is more apparent due to the 17.3 x 13.0mm sensor with regard to depth of field. Either close-up or far-away subjects can be easily separated from their backgrounds that are then rendered with a pleasing blur, making the D-LUX (Typ 109) an excellent choice for subjects ranging from macro, street photography, photojournalism, landscapes, or for whenever a highly-capable compact camera is desired. For those who wish to capture high-resolution video, the D-LUX (Typ 109) offers NTSC or PAL UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) output at 30p or 24p, which can be saved as easy-to use MP4 files. When lower video resolutions are sufficient, 1080p full HD or standard definition video can be selected instead, and results of any resolution can be played back on the camera's large, sharp 3.0" 921k-dot rear LCD display. During capture, the subject can also be viewed through the camera's 2764k integrated electronic viewfinder. Stills and video are saved to SD-type cards, up to and including those with SDXC capacities. To help preserve fast performance even while capturing high-resolution still photos or video, high-speed UHS-I SD-type memory cards can be used. While photos and videos can be downloaded from the memory card, Leica has provided additional options for sharing content taken with the D-LUX (Typ 109) even more convenient…”

This Panasonic-Leica LX and D-Lux series has been around for a very long time, but the latest iteration is quite the leap in sensor size. Although the mega-pixel count increase is insignificant, changing from a 1/1.7" sensor to a M43 is a significant jump in sensor surface area (more than 5 times more sensor surface area). The overall feel of the camera hasn't changed much from the previous D-Lux 6 ( Panasonic LX-7) and this is a good thing. The D-Lux series has always been a photographer-enthusiast focused camera and this essence is not lost on the latest model. Aesthetically speaking, the latest Leica D-Lux version has cleaner lines (no hand-grip hump) and nicer accessories, but is it worth the extra cash just for the Leica name and aesthetics? Check out my review of the Leica D-Lux (typ 109), including images and video of beautiful Hong Kong. ***Please Note: Although I shot the inserted sample video in 4K, it is rendered down to 1080p by YouTube.

•The minimalist design of the D-LUX 4 is totally in keeping with the Leica tradition of cameras with a clean, discreet and timeless look. The rigid housing of the camera is made of high-quality aluminum, making the D-LUX 4 so light, compact and unobtrusive that there's no reason why you should leave it at home •The large 1/1.63" CCD image sensor provides 10.1 Megapixels of effective resolution so the smallest details of the subject are reproduced exactly, and the larger sensor size results in more vibrant color with less image noise. •The LEICADC Vario-Summicron lens has a focusing range of 24-60 mm (equivalent in 35mm terms), and allows the photo enthusiast to work with an open shutter, making the D-LUX 4 ideal for available light exposures or using the wide aperture for selective use of field depth.
http://www.jr.com/leica/pe/LEI_DLUX4BLACK/?JRSource=yt The compact nature of the D-Lux 4 means it can be with you all the time. But despite its compact size, it offers top Leica quality and gives the photographer plenty of artistic freedom. The D-Lux 4 is ideal, whether for subjects composed with lots of forethought or for spontaneous reportage. The Ergonomic layout of controls and intuitive Operating system make it a pleasure to handle the D-Lux 4. Focus, shutter speed, stops and Exposure override can all be set manually with the Joystick giving the real enthusiast scope for highly individual picture composition. Of course you can also use the intelligent automatic mode: Depending on the subject and photographic situation, the camera automatically selects the best mode from Scene Select, either macro, landscape, portrait, night portrait, or night scene. The Professional Software Capture One 4 (RAW Data converter) makes sure that the RAW data supplied by the CCD sensor is "processed" in optimum quality.

Welcome to Part 2 of our compact camera shoot out between the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) and the Fujifilm X30. Both are excellent compact cameras. In part 2 we look more closely at the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109), a premium point and shoot with a Vario Summilux f/1.7 lens and a 4/3 MOS sensor, which is large for a camera of this size. In this short video you'll see some sample photos and stunning 4K video captured by the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109). Thanks for watching.

Lisa Gade reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 advanced compact camera, also sold as the Leica D-LUX (Typ 109). You can read our full written review and see sample photos here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/camera/Panasonic-Lumix-LX100.htm . This camera competes with the Sony RX100, Canon PowerShot G7X / G1X mk II and even compact ILC Micro Four Thirds cameras. It has a 16MP Micro Four Thirds sensor that’s cropped to 12.8MP to allow for different selectable aspect ratios (about 1.5x larger than a 1” sensor). The LX100 has a fast and sharp Leica 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 zoom lens for improved depth of field compared to most compact cameras. It has an EVF, 3” LCD, hot shoe with included accessory flash, OIS and it can shoot 4K video. It has micro HDMI and micro USB ports but no mic or headphone jack. It has full manual controls in addition to auto mode, and great ergonomics that will please advanced dSLR shooters. It’s geared more towards the serious photographer rather than the point and shoot crowd, though it takes excellent photos in auto mode.

I often get asked about cheap cameras and also about cheap Leicas. Because wether you like it or not they produce a special look and colors that many find desirable. The X1 is the cheapest purebred Leica I know of.
