Leica D-Lux 7

Compact and powerful

Convincingly versatile

The outstanding optical quality of the D-Lux 7 is achieved by both a fast aperture (f/1.7–2.8) and a long focal length of 10.9 - 34 mm (24–75 mm equivalent) with its built-in lens. 

The D-Lux 7 delivers impressive results across a multitude of photographic genres including portrait, landscape, architecture, macro and photo-journalism.

The impressive visual qualities of the D-Lux 7 really start to shine in low-light situations - especially when shooting without a flash. 

Take it to the next level

The D-Lux 7 features a newly developed 17-megapixel sensor. Delivering the full resolution, independent of the selected aspect ratio (3:2, 4:3, 16:9), the sensor provides greater details in every image.

The large size of the 4/3rd sensor consequently leads to larger pixels, that in turn are able to collect more light which reduces image noise and makes the D-Lux 7 ideal for available light photography.

Never miss a thing

Equipped with an extremely fast autofocus, shooting up to 11 frames per second the D-Lux 7 is guaranteed to capture and preserve even the most fleeting of moments.

Additionally, the D-Lux 7 is equipped with an innovative post-focus function that enables photographers to define the focus point even after taking the picture.       

Frame your world

The D-Lux 7 features a high resolution electronic viewfinder with 2,760K pixels for extremely precise framing and a 3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1,240K pixels.

Using the touchscreen enables the photographer to both conveniently control the D-Lux 7 and reliably judge the quality of an image straight after shooting it.  

Enjoy life-like videos

When life is moving too fast for a single picture, the D-Lux 7 video function will definitely do the trick. With 4K resolution - four times higher than Full HD - and up to 30p in MP4-format, the D-Lux 7 is destined to capture moving images in glorious detail.

Accompanying the video function, the 4K-photo function can be used to extract and save still pictures directly from video footage at a resolution of up to 8 megapixels.

Connected to the world

Easily pair and connect your Leica D-Lux 7 via Bluetooth. Use the remote wakeup function to connect to your Leica camera, even when it is off and out of reach. With automatic clock setting, your cameras' date and time are always in sync with your smartphone. Take advantage of the energy efficient Bluetooth® technology to always stay connected while you are on the go.

In combination with the Leica FOTOS App, the D-Lux 7 does not only offer fast access and the sharing of images via social media – it can even be triggered remotely.
