Leica C-LUX 1 Reviews from camera owners

I think the Leica C-LUX 1 is easy to use and feels wonderfully solid. I have taken some good images with it. It attests to the superb craftsmanship of the well-known Leica workmanship.

The Leica C-Lux 1 is smaller than the photos indicate online, which is excellent. It literally fits in a shirt pocket and feels solid with an all-metal build. It fills an empty niche in the world of digital cameras wherein one needs an extra small digital camera that shoots 6MP, is very fast, can shoot at ISO 100 with impeccable image quality (even in lower light with the image stabilizer). The image stabilizer seems to be an up and coming common feature with point-and-shoot cameras with small image sensors that get noisy at speeds over 100 ISO. I would have liked to have been able to delete images on the fly in fast action, but you have to switch to playback in order to do so. It is designed specifically for amateurs with no photo experience, as it is very easy to use.

Forget Canon IXUS / SD + Coolpix. This here is a real Leica. Coolest camera of this summer. Using the C-Lux, you are in the same league as Cartier-Bresson. The digital "M" for your pocket. Who cares for the data... In case you do: Superb picture quality in good light conditions. Easy to use. With the small sensor, you don't need Av or Tv mode. It's all sharp anyway. Only small internal software changes to the Panasonic FX01. But the body feels more solid and has the Leica badge. Be sure to buy yours in black. You'll have fun wherever you go and shoot pictures. Aah, yes. the ISO 800 + 1600 mode. In some cases it still produces pictures for 10x15 (4x6) prints, but not always. So use the flash in poor light conditions.

Now on day 5 of owning this camera I have slightly mixed feelings. Photo quality seems generally good but only really sharp in 'vivid' setting. The LCD is a joy to use: the facility to enhance brightness and also the 'high-angle' viewing feature are very, very good. Build quality seems generally good except for the flap over the battery/memory card area which seems as if it's escaped from a $50 bargain-basement camera - definitely not what one would expect on a Leica at any price. In addition, lack of separation between the D-ring and menu/set button means that big fingers will have problems in moving around the menus (which appear to be from Panasonic and much the same as my FZ5). Also the shutter button requires too much effort.
