Leica Digilux Zoom review

It's kind of tricky to rate this camera in todays' terms.

It's cheap now, so if you want an old cheap digileica then you can choose over this one with the zoom, or the fixed length one.

This one's images look fine and appear quite deep. The colours are great out-of-cam. Sharpness is fine. The cameras' performance is quite good, especially for that era (year 2000). Under-exposing by 0.3 or 0.6 seems to be a good idea when sunlight is around. Flash is good.

I recommend a mild NR-sheen in pp to make the 1.3mp image less obvious. Then after uploading to your FlickR or whatever the resize they do there will have next to no effect on the resolution, the image will look good.

If you do people shots then get them close, as the lack of pixels do not render faces very well if the person is far back in the picture.

Recommended for camera-heads who want to try a digileica on the cheap.
