  • As part of Leica Camera’s ongoing centennial celebrations -‘100 Years of Leica Photography’, Leica Camera is proud to present the Leica D-LUX 6 -Edition 100. The D-LUX 6 -Edition 100 consists of a glossy black / silver color camera with white engraving, a matching black leather case and leather strap, presented in an elegant black box. The camera has a glossy black painted body and a silver painted lens.

    The Leica D-Lux 6 perfectly represents pre-eminent Leica quality in a compact camera format.Its outstanding lens and the versatile capabilities for creative photography make it the perfect camera for capturing inspiring moments - in the typically brilliant image quality you expect from Leica. This new extremely fast lens makes it particularly suitable for available-light photography and creative experimentation with planes of focus and depth of field. Its full-HD video recording capability and numerous manual setting options can also offer even more creative freedom.

    This version, which is identical to the standard D-Lux 6, offers a striking glossy black / silver color camera with white engraving, a matching black leather case and leather strap, presented in an elegant black box.


    The newly designed, ultra-fast Leica DC-Vario-Summilux zoom lens 4.7-17.7mm f/1.4 -2.3 ASPH. sets a new milestone in the compact class with outstanding speed throughout its entire range of focal lengths from 24 to 90 mm (equivalent focal lengths). Especially in low light conditions, the newly developed lens shows its high-performance that makes the D-Lux 6 an outstanding camera for available light photography. Its exceptionally high speed also offers the opportunity to make the decisive parts of the subject "stand out" from the rest thanks to the shallow depth of field with large apertures. The zoom lens with its practically oriented range of focal lengths offers many more creative uses: portrait, landscape, architecture, macro photography, or the kind of wide-angle photo journalism that is so typical of Leica.


    This combination of the newly developed 10 MP C-MOS sensor and a high-performance Leica lens gives users the ability to capture images that set new standards in this class. The result is high-contrast, absolutely brilliant, more accurately detailed and more natural color reproduction. A new image processor now enables photography with sensitivities from ISO 80 to ISO 12,800. Thanks to the new video sensor Full HD AVCHD and internet friendly MP4 video capture is now supported. The burst speed of the new D-Lux 6 has been boosted to 12 fps.


    The new, optional EVF 3 electronic view finder is a quantum leap in quality, in comparison with the EVF 1 in the predecessor model. Thanks to the EVF 3, virtually perfect assessment of the composition and capture settings are now supported. The subject is clearly presented thanks to the high viewfinder resolution, thus allowing assessment of image. The viewfinder can be tilted up through 90°, giving the photographer viewing flexibility.


    For direct control, the D-Lux 6 has a manual aperture ring. This is a unique professional feature on a compact camera.


    The resolution of the new D-Lux 6 display is 920,000 pixels, twice that of its predecessor. Even in sunlight, the new display still provides excellent playback. The different formats are displayed in recording and playback mode.


    The integrated ND filter is also new. It is enabled by a second, new slide control on the back of the camera. The filter reduces the light by 3 stops. This makes it possible to take photographs with a wide open aperture or longer exposure times in bright ambient light. In addition to the Panorama function for shooting up to 360°, the D-Lux 6 also has an engageable spirit level which is helpful to determine the correct orientation of the subject.
