Stylish design

The design of the D-Lux 3 is totally in keeping with Leica tradition: pure, discreet, timeless - in a housing of high-quality aluminum.



Always on the move

The D-Lux 3 is so light, compact and unobtrusive that there's no reason why you should leave it at home. Small as it is, it's a great performer: three file formats - from simple JPEG to the RAW format rarely offered in this class of camera - ensure optimum image quality for further processing as well. The image stabilizer (O.I.S.) leads to sharply focused images even in situations where there's not really enough natural light. The camera is also perfect for digiscoping - taking photographs through a spotting scope - to capture the fascination of nature at close range.



Plenty of scope for creativity

The D-Lux 3 still gives the photographer the freedom to create his own view of the world without any automatic settings. The 16:9 picture format with the full resolution of over 10 megapixels produces fantastic images for frame-filling viewing on HDTV equipment. The brilliant 2.8" display also has an aspect ratio of 16:9.
