"Just what I needed"on by aaulbach
Pros This camera is perfect from both a usability and a quality standpoint. Bought it used six months ago and it goes with me everywhere. Very easy to use when you don't have much time to get ready but want to get that quality shot.
Cons So many features I am having a gard time learning and remembering.
Summary All I need - my other cameras are looking for a little love. Worth every penny.
Pros The D-Lux 4 is as simple or complicated as you want to make it, and offers a wide pallet of responses to any situation.
Cons It took a while to get used to no viewfinder, but now it is second nature.
Summary I often use a tripod and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have had mine for a year and a half, and know the D-Lux 4 pretty well now, and to me it is technology at its best.
Pros Macro-shots from unbelievably close (sub 1 cm), autofocus great, lots of manual settings, light, has RAW, sturdy body.
Cons The lens cap needs getting used to, sometimes you may loose a great shot... Some manual features not so easy to understand/learn, lens with open cap gets easily greasy fingerprints...
Summary Great camera after my stolen C-Lux2; love the additional (manual) functions and larger display. Completely worth its price.
Pros Image quality, image quality & image quality
Cons Feels cheap, no built-in lens cover
Summary Image quality, particularly macro, is outstanding, really handy for stealthy food-blogging shots. People are more relaxed around point'n'shoots, which helps get candid shots I crave. The red dot and beautiful leather case give you pro cred when using professionally. Love it! Just ordered custom grip, but not factory, as it is too bulky.
Pros This blew me away, I went in to replace a point and shoot that was damaged. I came out with this one wondering if I spent to much and was gladly assured by the images and quality of the camera that I made the right choice.
Cons The cost was a bit extreme, and the raw format is a bit of a pain to download.
Summary This camera hands down can replace many of my photo jobs that i use a digital slr for. The light capture and ambient images are simply amazing.
Well worth the money for this Leica
