Leica C-Lux reviews

C-Lux Digital Camera (Midnight Blue) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
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 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 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 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.

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!
