Pure Depth and Fine Clarity

 

There is a difference and it all depends on if you can see what you want in your shot. If you are discerning to the point where minute differences make or break your day, this Leica is the compact of choice. While 1020 60P video and 16-17 megapixels,...

A perfect little camera.

 

Contemplated between Panasonic Lumix and Leica D-Lux 5 - but Leica has slightly simpler design, better menu, came with Adobe Lightroom, and great fan base to get knowledge. Also better residual value than Lumix. Glad to have made the "jump," despite...

The reassuring red dot.

 

The camera is used as an adjunct to my work as a Hand Surgeon. Images taken during operations and in clinic are kept for record purposes and also form the majority of material for teaching other surgeons.
