Get creative with the Leica D-Lux 6
Shooting with a Leica camera means one thing in particular: the sheer joy of photography. And that is precisely what the Leica D-Lux 6 is offering by the intuitive handling and clearly laid out functions. A click wheel on the Leica D-Lux 6 lets users quickly and easily select the distance, shutter speed and exposure corrections. The new aperture setting feature on the lens barrel enables even more direct control, as is the case with the new second dial: this enables manual focusing and the addition of an ND filter, for example, to allow slower shutter speeds for intentional motion blur even in intense light. In addition, the Leica D-Lux 6 features a smart snapshot mode and programme AE are ideal for spontaneous shots and are a valuable aid for less experienced photographers.
Elegant Leica D-Lux 6 body
Just like its predecessors, the new Leica D-Lux 6 digital compact camera combines classic elegance with premium materials. Finished completely in black, only a few chromed elements set discreet counterpoints and refine the clarity of its design. A true Leica - at first sight. However, its premium-quality character is not defined by design alone. Its silky-smooth, black anodised exterior encases a rugged and compact metal body which ensures both robustness and excellent grip.
