Poised as the ideal pocket camera, the black 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

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...

Awesome Camera with Great Support

Picture quality is great as you would expect. First time setup was easy. I followed instructions offered by Leica Academy Australia. The fellow gets right to the point making the instructions easy to follow. Just a heads up on this camera, when using the viewfinder in a quiet room, I detected a noise coming from inside the camera. When I held the camera up to my ear, I heard a faint whirring noise. It sounded like a fan running or the auto-focus constantly at work. So I contacted Leica support. Within hours they responded that the noise I was hearing was the image stabilization and was normal. Yup, I rested the camera on the desk and within moments the sound subsided.

A Little Gem

My primary cameras are a Leica SL2 and Sony a1, but there are times when I just want a grab-and-go camera. After considerable research, I settled on the D-Lux 7 and have not been disappointed. Once you accept that you'll not get the images and function of one of the big kits, you'll be very happy with the D-Lux 7.

Replaces a D-Lux 6 that was stolen...

While photographing a high school baseball game for a friend, I had someone walk off with the D-Lux 6 I always carry around. The insurance picked up the cost of replacement and other than the 7 being a little bigger and not quite as easy to carry around, the extra image size and the super lens makes it a definite upgrade... so not all was lost.

Excellent quality, great value

While owning a camera with a little red dot is certainly a status symbol, this affordable, compact point and shoot truly lives up to the legendary quality associated with Leica. The ease of use, the ergonomic perfection, and the stunning quality of shots all add up to a satisfactory purchase that is worth every penny. Thanks again to the extremely helpful B&H staff for helping me make this decision. It's a camera that will create a lifetime of memories, starting with this very purchase.

Still learning to use all the features. Not crazy about how easily the touch screen takes a shot. When I have my face pressed against it to use the viewfinder, the shutter goes off.

Phenomenal Camera!

I got this fine camera about 4 months ago, it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. This camera has everything - good megapixels (17), aperture ring, shutter speed dial, adjustable focus ring, ISO button, color temperature, wireless capabilities, reliable internal clock, zooms in and out, video mode, and if you're in a hurry to take a shot you can put it in fully automatic with one convenient button. I use it literally every day, I keep it in pristine condition, and love everything about it. Wanted to try Leica because of the name, it met all of my needs and then some. Overall great camera; the price you pay is a steal. I'm surprised that this isn't much more expensive, but it works out to the buyer's benefit. If you decide to buy this camera, I recommend getting the auto-lens cap. So worth it. If you take good care of it, the Leica D-Lux 7 will give you stunning results. This camera is also relatively lightweight and compact, meaning you can put this in your everyday bag and bring it with you anywhere. The name says it all, Leica. Leica has a strong reputation, and for very good reason. I've used about 5 or 6 cameras throughout my life, this one easily takes the cake. This will be the camera that I die with.

Trying to access the control dial functions but it just brings me to the focus box?
Asked by: susan
You are on the Snapshot mode which limits the abilities for manual operations. Please click on the (A) button between the shutter speed dial and the exposure compensation dial. If you see a red square on the left side of your LCD it will change to (M, A, S, or P) once you top the (A) button on your LCD depending on how you have your camera set up. After you change the camera mode you can access the shutter speed and other functions through both of the camera dials.
