Offering top quality in a compact digital camera, the Leica D-Lux 8 delivers versatile portability and a seamless user experience.

The eighth generation in D-Lux cameras, the D-Lux 8 utilizes a 17MP Four Thirds CMOS sensor and has a fixed 10.9-34mm f/1.7-2.8 lens which provides a 24-75mm full-frame equivalency.

The specs say 1/4000 mechanical shutter speed but the dial on top shows 1/2000 ?
Asked by: Pierre
The instruction manual for the Leica D-Lux 8 Digital Camera does list the maximum shutter speed for mechanical shutter as being 1/4000. The shutter speed can be fine-tuned to shutter speeds that are not listed on the top dial by using the thumbwheel.

What is the sync speed of the D-Lux 8 ?

What is the sync speed of the D-Lux 8 ?
Asked by: Pierre
I think the 1/4000 that is on the tech spec for the leaf shutter is a typo. The manual states 1/2000 on page 97 which I think is correct. Without the leaf shutter flash doesnt fire, so the x sync they gave in the manual may not be correct either
