    5Everything it's cracked up to be!
    By Max Crowe
    After taking a few trips overseas with my wonderfull Nikon D200 10.2 MP digital SLR, I beagan to feel the weight (and bulk), to say the least. Still, the capabilities I could enjoy with this cam and its 18-200mm zoon lens were just too good to give up in favor of a pocket-size. Nonetheless, I started researching like crazy and finally wound up somewhere between the Panasonic and this Leica, which is modelled on the Panasonic (yes, not the other way around). In the end, I couldn't resist the idea of owning a genuine German Leica for just under $600! After having it for a few weeks, I have some simply spectacular pics in the 16:9 format at the full 10 MP. It really helps to take some just awsome images (and I am not in the obnoxious habit of overusing the word "awsome", BTW). The camera's heft and feel is one of sheer quality, as is the look, and use of it is simple, fun, and gives an amateur like me both a killer backup cam to the D200 AND a stand-alone that I can take pretty much around the word knowing I will miss very little and carry even less. It has literally contributed to making me happy in a way that few possesions ever have. But then, that's because I love to take pictures so much. This baby is everything it's cracked up to be, and more!

    5perfect camera
    By juan ignacio quintana osorio
    the lens and the light this camera get are awesome...
    the zoom is a little useless and lose focus easily... but is only matter if you are super obsess with the perfect picture.
    i really love this camera

    5Leica D Lux 3
    By Domenick Capobianco
    Leica. The best. For professionals, a professional second backup camera. For the rest of us, this is as good as it gets. Optional picture formats, and a 2.7 inch viewing screen.

    From the Manufacturer
    Every picture taken with the Leica D-LUX 3 has a story to tell. The unique manual setting options give you the freedom to create images that express your own style. Use the high-quality Leica lens to take stunning shots from the wide-angle to the telephoto range. With O.I.S. optical stabilization technology and ultra fast processing, the Leica D-LUX 3 sets new standards in its class. Choose between three picture formats, achieve first-class image quality with the camera's 10 megapixel sensor and assess your shots on the wide-screen display. Small and elegant, the Leica D-LUX 3 is always ready to make your personal view of the world reality.

    Stylish design
    The design of the D-Lux 3 is totally in keeping with Leica tradition: pure, discreet, timeless--in a housing of high-quality aluminum.

    Always on the move
    The D-Lux 3 is so light, compact and unobtrusive that there's no reason why you should leave it at home. Small as it is, it's a great performer: three file formats--from simple JPEG to the RAW format rarely offered in this class of camera--ensure optimum image quality for further processing as well. The image stabilizer (O.I.S.) leads to sharply focused images even in situations where there's not really enough natural light. The camera is also perfect for digiscoping--taking photographs through a spotting scope--to capture the fascination of nature at close range.

    Plenty of scope for creativity
    The D-Lux 3 still gives the photographer the freedom to create his own view of the world without any automatic settings. The 16:9 picture format with the full resolution of over 10-megapixels produces fantastic images for frame-filling viewing on HDTV equipment. The brilliant 2.8-inch display also has an aspect ratio of 16:9.

    What's in the Box:
    Camera with lens cap and hand loop, 64 MB SD card, charger, Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery, A/V cable, USB cable, extensive software package (Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 (PC)/3.0 (Mac), Quicktime Movie Player).
