Is there a power charger and USB C cable included and if not what is recommended?
Asked by: Alan
The Leica D-Lux 8 Digital Camera does not include a battery charger or a USB-C cable. For the USB-C cable I recommend this Belkin BoostCharge USB-C Braided Cable (Black, 6.6') https://bhpho.to/3R8mtva For the battery charger I recommend this Watson Compact AC/DC Charger. https://bhpho.to/3yMVCP5

Can I charge this with my iPad charger/cable?
Asked by: David
Yes. The battery can be charged inside the Leica D-Lux 8 Digital Camera using a standard USB-C cable and USB wall plug charger. But using an external charger is more convenient if you have 2 or more batteries: https://bhpho.to/3yMVCP5

Why does it say 21 MP sensor but 17 MP ...

Why does it say 21 MP sensor but 17 MP "effective"? Seems like a waste of 4 MP.
Asked by: Lance
The 21 MP sensor allows the multi-aspect ratio to work on this camera. You have 1:1, 4:3, 16:9, etc. Each aspect ratio allows you to "crop" a different part of that sensor – thus the 17 MP effective label.
