A performance profile extended by numerous new functions and features such as a touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity and USB-C charging capability makes the new Leica D-Lux 7 an ideal everyday companion and a versatile camera.

Building Upon the Familiar

Familiar features such as an automatic exposure mode, manual setting options, and a range of video functions are complemented by an integrated, 2.8-megapixel high-resolution electronic viewfinder, a WiFi module and Bluetooth connectivity. On the back of the Leica D-Lux 7, a 1.24-megapixel 3“ LCD touchscreen display makes it easy to browse photos and control the camera. Focal points can be set with a simple tap on the screen and pictures can be taken without having to touch any of its other controls.

Improvements to the camera’s hardware also include various additions to its range of functions. For example, the focal point of an exposure can be changed after shooting, or several exposures with different focal points can be superimposed on top of each other via Focus Stacking. The camera’s capabilities have also been expanded to include video recording in 4K resolution – at a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second and 100 Mbit and in MP4 and AVCHD-format.
