Poised as the ideal pocket camera, the silver Leica D-Lux 7 is a svelte, compact camera characterized by its large sensor design, versatile lens, and sleek styling. The 17MP Four Thirds MOS sensor offers impressive performance with a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 along with an 11-fps continuous shooting rate and UHD 4K30p video recording to suit multimedia shooting applications in a variety of conditions. Balancing the imaging capabilities is a flexible DC Vario-Summilux lens, which offers a 24-75mm equivalent focal length range along with a bright f/1.7-2.8 design for controlling depth of field and working in difficult lighting conditions. This lens also utilizes optical image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake in order to realize sharper handheld imagery.

Complementing the sensor and lens attributes is a travel-friendly physical design, which incorporates both a 2.76m-dot electronic viewfinder and a 3.0" 1.24m-dot rear touchscreen LCD. These assets are backed up by built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which work in conjunction with the Leica FOTOS app for seamless wireless sharing as well as remote camera control from a linked iOS or Android device.

17MP Four Thirds MOS Sensor
A 17MP Four Thirds MOS sensor affords notable resolution, and the larger physical size offers a high sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 along with low noise levels and vivid color and tonal rendering. The sensor's design, with 21.77MP total resolution, also supports working in multiple aspect ratios—4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1—while maintaining the same field of view. The sensor and image processor also enable continuous shooting at up to 11 fps and UHD 4K movie recording.
Vario-Summilux Lens
The built-in DC Vario-Summilux 3.1x zoom lens offers a 24-75mm equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to portrait-length focal lengths to suit working in a variety of shooting situations. Its bright f/1.7-2.8 maximum aperture range also suits working in low-light conditions and offers improved control over depth of field. Additionally, also benefiting working in difficult lighting, optical image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake to help render sharper handheld images.
UHD 4K Video Recording
In addition to the versatile still shooting modes, the D-Lux 7 also supports recording UHD 4K video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100 Mb/s in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p60 is also supported, in both MP4 and AVCHD formats.
4K PHOTO Modes
Utilizing the D-Lux 7's video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8MP stills at a 30-fps shooting rate:
  • Burst: this mode will allow you to continuously record, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • Pre-Burst: this mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record images one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • Burst (S/S): this mode most closely follows the video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8MP frame.
Body Design
  • Bright electronic viewfinder has a 2.76m-dot resolution for clear eye-level viewing, even in bright sunlight.
  • Rear 3.0" 1.24m-dot LCD features a touchscreen design for intuitive menu navigation, image playback, and for selecting AF points while shooting.
  • Included hot shoe-mounted external flash can be used to provide additional illumination when working in low-light conditions.
  • In-camera charging of the BP-DC15 lithium-ion battery is supported via an optional USB-connected power bank or when connected to a computer or AC adapter.
Wireless Connectivity and Other Camera Features
  • Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, when used in conjunction with the Leica FOTOS app for iOS and Android, permits sharing imagery directly to a linked mobile device and also enables remote control over the D-Lux 7 and remote shooting via a live view image.
  • Post Focus allows users to select the point of focus after an image has been taken. An electronic shutter function avails a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec. to better enable working in bright conditions and with wider aperture settings.

Leica D-Lux 7 Reviews

Expensive Trash

By Ross Avery
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2023-06-27

I owned this camera for less than a year and it malfunctioned on me 3 times. I had to fight tooth and nail with the insurance company for a reimbursement, never dropped or spilt anything on it once. Way overpriced, don't let the name fool you. This camera is lousy. It's also slow to turn on and off. If I could give it zero stars I would have.

I received this camera as a gift from my husband to replace my D-Lux 3. The D-Lux 7 s an amazing camera! The controls are easy enough to use because there are similar features with three older camera.The resolution is so much more better. The EVF is a welcome relief to shooting in situations where composing a photo in bright light was a bit of a struggle. There's so much more that this new camera can do that i can't wait to try out on our trip to Europe.

Dope camera

Leica's BW settings are the best. It's amazing to look through the viewfinder and see the world the way you've always seen it. Highly recommend if you see the world in monochrome.

Best Carry on Camera

By Sibel
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-14

I used Leica D-Lux 6, before like 4 years ago. After selling it I use other cameras for a while as a carry on... Then i decided to get the D-Lux 7 as to have it with me all the times. It is compact and a great performer. The zoom is another bonus to have on a compact camera. Sharp and fine detailed images are as a standard...

Product Great - Help Tricky

By Andy
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-05-10

The product seems amazing! I haven't really started using it because I'm so busy (high level executive with a full time attorney spouse while we're pregnant with our third kid). Only challenge so far is many of the accessories are tough to get specific instructions for and i don't see them in the instructions or readily available online. Specifically the lens cap string isn't clear how to attach between camera and lens. Also the carrying strap has unique leather pieces that aren't clear or instructions included on proper installation. I've found a couple images online that give a decent view of how they're to fasten but it seems those things are just up to you to figure out and do not seem self evident to a beginner like me.

Zoom - It has a short focal length zoom lens. This is very useful for a contemplative photographer. Long soon lenses encourage laziness. The lens with this camera is perfect. It also has filter thread which is absolutely necessary.

Yes. The D-Lux 7 has a similar time lapse feature where you can take pictures automatically at set intervals and later create a video. A complete description on how to use this feature is shown on page 133 of the D-Lux 7's instruction manual found on Leica's website.
