Review: Leica C-Lux 3

 

For the past few years Leica has been wading into the point-and-shoot mass-market, where competition is vicious and where the company demands a pricey premium...

Sharp, accurate colors. Great white balance. Excellent pictures in bright light. Dead-simple interface and controls. Three aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, and 16:9). 3-year warranty

Pricey as hell. No panoramic mode. Limited manual mode only allows exposure control. Decent but not great shots in low light (Our Canon G10 does it better). Did we mention price

Leica C-Lux 3 Review

 

The Leica C-Lux 3 is palm-sized, dressed in black and satin chrome with the distinctive red dot signifying it's top of the class. You can also buy the little Leica in gloss white but, for my money, the red Leica badge on black comes in trumps.

The pictures I took with the Leica were crisp and fully colour saturated.

Leica C-LUX 3

 

10.1-megapixel compact camera with plenty of style and substance.

Excellent picture quality, loads of automatic features, HD video recording, eminently stylish

Prohibitive price tag, it's a bit too (s)wanky

The Leica C-LUX 3 is a deluxe compact camera steeped in style and elegance. Unfortunately, its premium price tag is slightly beyond reason, especially given the existence of Panasonic's similar Lumix DMC-FX38. As such, its appeal will be limited to...

Leica C-Lux 3

 

A stylish and pocketable digicam for point-and-press snapshooters. The C-Lux 3 is the latest Leica-branded camera to emerge from the on-going partnership between Leica and Panasonic. Essentially a re-badged Panasonic FX37, it has the same image sensor...

The C-Lux 3 only supports JPEG capture for still images and QuickTime Motion JPEG for movie clips. Like most Panasonic digicams, it offers three aspect ratio settings: 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9. Aspect ratios can only be changed in the Camera menu. Two JPEG...

Good

 

Very user friendly.Love the anti-shake and face detection feature. Although only 10 mpix, produce images better than other make of higher pixels. Highly recommended and must buy this "collecter's items"

Slim and relatively light to fit in pocket.

Comparatively more expensive over similar meg and size camera. Equivalent model, under Panasonic, is almost 40% cheaper.
