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 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 means larger pixels that 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 system, 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 choose the focus point even after taking the picture.       

Frame your world

The D-Lux 7 features a high resolution electronic viewfinder with 2.76 million pixels for extremely precise framing and a 3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1.24 million 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 can do the trick. With 4K resolution - four times higher than Full HD - and up to 30 frames per second in both MP4 and AVCHD-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

The D-Lux 7 is easily connected to a smartphone using WiFi. Compatible with your camera, the Leica FOTOS app delivers features that enable photographers to remotely capture unforgettable moments, transfer, edit and share images quickly, easily, and on-the-go.

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