Leica D-Lux 6 and V-Lux 40 Cameras

Other new Leica cameras showcased at Photokina are D-Lux 6 and V-Lux 40.


Leica D-Lux 6 Camera Features:

Fast and brilliant
The newly designed, extremely fast Leica DC-Vario-Summilux 4.7–17.7 mm f/1.4–2.3 ASPH. sets a new milestone in compact cameras with outstanding speed throughout its entire range of focal lengths from 24 to 90 mm (35 mm equivalent). The combination of this lens with the new 1.7" CMOS image sensor enables the creation of absolutely brilliant, high-contrast images with even greater depth of field, more precise details and more natural colour rendition – everything the user expects from a Leica. Whether for portraits, landscapes, architectural and macro photography or the typical Leica wide-angle photo-reportage style – the D-Lux 6 is the perfect camera for capturing brilliant images.

Creative freedom
Shooting with a Leica means one thing in particular: the sheer joy of photography.
And that is precisely what’s offered by the intuitive handling and clearly laid out functions of the Leica D-Lux 6. A click wheel lets users quickly and easily select the distance, shutter speed and exposure corrections. The new aperture setting feature on the lens barrel enables even more direct control, as is the case with the new second dial: this enables manual focusing and the addition of an ND filter, for example, to allow slower shutter speeds for intentional motion blur even in intense light. Its smart snapshot mode and programme AE are ideal for spontaneous shots and are a valuable aid for less experienced photographers.

Classic design
Just like its predecessors, the new Leica D-Lux 6 combines classic elegance with premium materials.
Finished completely in black, only a few chromed elements set discreet counterpoints and refine the clarity of its design. A true Leica – at first sight. However, its premium-quality character is not defined by design alone. Its silky-smooth, black anodised exterior encases a rugged and compact metal body which ensures both robustness and excellent grip.

Accessories: a camera with system character
For even more photographic freedom, the compact D-Lux 6 can be complemented with an extensive range of accessories.
The new electronic high-resolution viewfinder (1.4 megapixel), the detachable flash unit perfectly matched to D-Lux cameras, the handgrip and other useful accessories transform the Leica D-Lux 6 into a camera with system character – for enhanced performance, greater creative latitude and even more of the unique pleasure of photography.

Leica V-Lux 40 Compact Camera Features:

Extensive range of focal lenghts

As with all Leica lenses, the V-Lux 40's new Leica DC Vario-Elmar 4.3-86 mm f/3.3-6.4 ASPH. (24-480 mm equivalent) is a true masterpiece. The enormous range of focal lengths of this 20× optical zoom lens, for both still and video capture, spans a 24 mm super-wide angle to a 480 mm super-telephoto. High-precision aspherical lenses in combination with its new, 1/2.33" CMOS image sensor guarantee outstanding results.

Full HD-quality video
The impressive Full-HD videos captured by the V-Lux 40 deliver a perfect rendition of the details of even the fastest-moving subjects. This is made possible by recording in AVCHD format with 1920 × 1080 pixels at 50 full frames per second. New: Videos can now also be saved in Internet-friendly MP4 format and can be uploaded directly to social media or mobile devices, for example, without the need for conversion. Outstanding audio quality is ensured, thanks to an integrated stereo microphone with built-in wind-noise filter.

Integrated GPS functions
Its integrated GPS module also makes the V-Lux 40 the ideal camera for travelling. It not only records the location and time in the Exif data of each image file, but also displays any interesting sights to be seen in the surrounding area. The DVD included in the package contains maps of important cities and regions. These can be transferred to an SD card and uploaded to the camera to assist with directions in unfamiliar locations. Thumbnail images can also be stored within these maps.
