Revolving around a 20.1MP 1" MOS sensor, both high-resolution stills and UHD 4030p video can be recorded. The sensor's design affords a top sensitivity of ISO 25600 to enable working in low light, and a top 10-fps shooting rate is also available for photographing moving subjects. Complementing the sensor's versatility is a 15x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens, which covers a 24-360mm equivalent focal length range for photographing in a broad variety of situations. This lens's reach is benefited by 5-axis optical image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when working handheld.

Beyond its performance, the C-Lux is also distinguished by its physical design that incorporates both a 2.33m-dot electronic viewfinder, for bright eye-level shooting, and a 3.0" 1.24m-dot touchscreen LCD.

Leica C-Lux reviews

C-Lux Digital Camera (Light Gold) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I carry this one everywhere This Leica has all the features needed to capture that image without wasting time. I usually carry at least one camera everywhere and it now is the Leica. Compact and light but not short on necessary features or quality, I can capture many spontaneous moments with confidence and ease. The functions were easy to learn and like any camera, expect some differences. I am glad the viewfinder is on the left of the back since me best eye is my right and my nose is no longer against the back of the camera. The adjusting ring on the lens is very handy. The camera fits me very well and is like an extension of myself, allowing me to concentrate on the image I want to capture with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leica C-Lux 20mp One-Inch Sensor Digital Camera State of the art insofar as having a 360mm (135-equiv.) zoom lens and one-inch sensor in a shirt-pocket size camera. An outstanding EVF, touchscreen, and nice leatherette finish with a decent grip make this a good deal for the price, in my view. If you've used the small-sensor (1/2.3 inch) cameras, you'll be amazed at the detail with this camera. If you're more familiar with larger-sensor (4/3, APS-C, or full-frame) cameras, you'll probably be surprised at the detail and relatively low noise this camera has. While the lens is 'softer' at the long end of the zoom, those images sharpen up so well that I don't see a significant difference in quality compared to shooting closer. One caveat: If I were going on vacation and needed high-quality images in very low light, it would be best to take a tripod and make timer shots at the lowest ISO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp Focus I like the size of this camera, it's build quality, and the menu system. This is my 2nd Leica purchase (Q was my 1st), and the menu was simple, and easy to work, logical. I just came from shooting about 50 photos over the weekend down in the Ozarks, I was pleased with the sharpness of the auto focus and the range of the zoom lens. Initially I am very pleased with the purchased, and look forward to exploring some of the more advanced features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great third option between full-frame and smartphone I wanted something easier to carry than my Nikon D850 but better than my iPhone, and I decided to get the Leica rather than the cheaper but similar Panasonic. It meets both criteria, though it fails the converse: it is not as good as my D850 or as easy to carry as my iPhone. Call it a good compromise. I've shot test shots so far and the images are sharp. Noise is only just visible at ISO 3200 and easily removed; it becomes more noticeable as ISO goes above 6400. No surprise there, certainly better than compact cameras with a smaller sensor. The main shortcoming, relative to my full-frame D850, is the depth of field available with the smaller sensor and the limited aperture range of f3.3 to f8. The smallest DoF, at f3.3 and focal length 24mm, is equal to f9 at 65mm on a full-frame sensor. So I can't get nice fuzzy bokeh in the background. The EVF is small, also no surprise, but will be useful when the LCD becomes invisible in bright sunshine. It is a bit heavier than I thought it would be and certainly won't go in my shirt pocket, but I can carry it in my pants pocket if I want to. All things considered, its portability is fine. One reviewer complained about the instructions. He must have been referring to the small book that comes with the camera - I agree, it's worthless. But that isn't the real instruction book - it's downloadable from the Leica website, all 294 pages, and tells everything I needed to know about the settings. The C-Lux won't replace my D850 or my iPhone; I didn't expect it to. But it gives me a third option in between the two, and that's what I was after.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp camera for its size The C-lux surprised me with its clarity. Of course it is not to be compared with medium format or full frame 35 mm, but it is good for modest sized prints. With its long reaching zoom there need not be many cases of cropping. Its major fault is the poorest written instruction book I have ever seen. Unlike the Japanese books after WW II, the English is OK. However the use of a few small knobs to do multiple tasks leaves an unexplained mess! I still am unable to set an f stop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A jewel This little Camera is a Powerhouse. Don't leave home without it!!!
Date published: 2018-09-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for JPG The lens is noticeably less sharp than my old R----3. Really disappointing. Also, of my 4 photo editing apps, only one will open the RWL raw image files. The one that does shows a very strong vignetting and loss of contrast in all 4 corners.
Date published: 2018-09-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use; very hardy in construction! Excellent color The camera is very powerful and easy to use. The wide range focal length (15X) makes the camera very powerful and usable in many different situations of shooting. It could virtually be an all purpose camera!
