Manufacturer's product description

What does the LEICA DIGILUX1 have in common with the LEICA I of 1925? With its outstanding optical quality, high speed and mobility, the first Leica soon became a successful reportage camera and it paved the way for the enormous growth of 35 mm photography. Outstanding optical quality, high speed and mobility are also the characteristics of the digital reportage camera LEICA DIGILUX1. The result of intensive technological cooperation with Panasonic, it combines modern digital technology with the optical know-how of Leica. Classic elements of design and operating convenience make the LEICA DIGILUX1 a synthesis of experience and innovation. It is an extraordinary, fast and easy-to-use digital camera with outstanding imaging quality that gives photographers many new creative possibilities. And that, above all and in every respect, makes it a typical Leica.
