The D-LUX 7 is the perfect pocket camera, delivering a combination of first-class optics and high-end technology. It is an ideal daily companion for professionals and dedicated amateurs alike. The 17MP Four Thirds MOS sensor is substantial in size compared to the camera body itself, providing a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600. Also, the 11-fps continuous shooting range and UHD 4K30p video capabilities cater to multi-media creators of all kinds. This is backed up by a flexible DC Vario-Summilux lens with a 24-75mm equivalent focal length and bright f/1.7-2.8 design. It works wonders in low-light situations - providing you with greater control over the depth of field, optical image stabilisation, and stands as an ideal setup for dynamic portraiture. Contemporary features further complement the D-LUX 7's classical styling to include a 2.76m-dot (Million Dots) electronic viewfinder and 3.0" 1.24m-dot rear touchscreen LCD.

Sensational 17MP Four Thirds MOS Sensor
Being a true to definition pocket camera, the sizable 17MP Four Thirds MOS Sensor stands as the key to this camera's success. It provides a high sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600, in conjunction with low noise, vivid colour, and precise tonal rendering. As a compact all-in-one camera, the image quality is on another level to most - with the sensor's design allowing for 21.77MP total resolution. You have the ability to work in varying aspect ratios; 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 - while the field of view remains resolute. The D-LUX 7 specialises in this discrete level of power, perfectly suited to a multitude of photographic disciplines.
Behind The Lens
The DC Vario-Summilux 3.1x zoom lens beautifully compliments the D-LUX 7 compact camera. It offers a 24-75mm equivalent focal length range with a vibrant f/1.7/2.8 maximum aperture range. This focal range suits wide-angle shooting, dynamic portraiture work, and everything in-between. The built-in optical image stabilisation further minimises camera shake to enable sharper handheld images when travelling through unexplored cities, undiscovered coastlines, or when shooting with new faces.
If it is high-quality moving-images you require, the D-LUX 7 can provide. This Leica camera supports recording UHD 4K video in either 30p or 24p frame rates at 100 Mb/s in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p60 is also capable in both MP4 and AVCHD formats. By merging both the still and the moving, the D-LUX 7 holds a trio of still-shooting modes for continuous 8MP stills at a 30-fps shooting rate.
These include Burst, Pre-Burst, and Burst (S/S). The first allows for continuous recording, ideal for when you require a fast frame rate to capture the perfect shot. Pre-Burst, however, will record images one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button. This gives you 60 frames to choose from, whilst Burst (S/S) allows you to handpick the best frame from the pre-recorded video and saves it as a single 8MP frame. It is this versatility that makes the D-LUX 7 such a crowd favourite - putting the emphasis back on the artist to craft the image.
The Classical And The Contemporary
In recent years, Leica has seamlessly combined the classical with the contemporary. With the D-LUX 7, you have the luxury of a bright 2.76m-dot resolution viewfinder for clear eye-level viewing, even in the brightest sunlight. A 3.0" 1.24m-dot touch-sensitive LCD screen sits pride of place upon the rear of the camera body for access to the menu, image playback, and for selecting AF points whilst shooting. The included hot shoe-mounted external flash provides further illumination when working in poor lighting conditions, adding a certain dynamic flare to your images. For efficient charging, be sure to utilise the included Micro-B USB Cable with either an AC adapter, computer, or USB-connected power bank.
Access the Leica FOTOS app on your iOS or Android device with the D-LUX 7's in-built WiFi and Bluetooth connection to share images directly to a paired mobile device. You can also access a live-view image and use your device as a remote control. The D-LUX 7 has another trick up its sleeve, with Post Focus allowing you to select the point of focus after an image has been taken. This is aided by an electronic shutter function at a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec to better combat bright conditions and with wider aperture settings.

The Leica D-Lux 7 - Compact and powerful
Is this built-in lens sealed from dust?
Everytime you focus or zoom this lens, it essentially "breathes" - a good way of expelling unwanted dust and debris. However, this lens is not classed as dust proof or waterproof. If issues occur, be sure to contact Leica Customer Care for sensor cleaning and servicing.
Is the built-in lens a zoom or prime?
The lens is an intuitive 3x zoom lens with a fast f/1.7-2.8 aperture. The short focal length means that you have to put great thought into framing - well-loved by the more contemplative image-maker.
Can you use a non-Leica flash unit with the D-LUX 7?
The D-LUX 7 is compatible with any speedlight that fits Panasonic and Olympus cameras of the same design. The included CF D Flash Unit is small, but creates a strong fill flash that is great for dynamic portraiture and for use in low-light situations.
Does this camera have a monochrome mode?
Yes, this camera has a specific monochrome/B&W mode.
Is the D-LUX 7 auto-focus?
Yes, the D-LUX 7 is an auto-focus camera, but can be set to manual if preferred.
Can you utilise an external microphone when using the D-LUX 7?
Unfortunately not, there is no available external microphone and no headphone/external mic jack. The quality built-in microphone works wonders when recording video however.
