I have a Leica D-LUX 6 that is maybe three years old. When I turned it on the other day, to capture a quick video, I zoomed in on my subject, made a recording, then discovered that I couldn't access the review function. Subsequently, I found that I couldn't access the menu. In fact, none of the functions are available (except the format ring on the lens). I pulled the battery and card, without any effect: whenever I turn the camera on, it immediately zooms to the setting I used to capture...
Hi, A friend of mine lost his Leica D-Lux 6 original charger, and is looking for a replacement. I have a few questions to try to help out my friend: - Would anyone recommend a good replacement one? - I've heard of a Wasabi make. Is it any good? - I can't find the OEM on Amazon or Ebay, can that be found? Thanks --Martin Ocando-------------------------http://g3.img-dpreview.com/6221E9123CD346ABB1960C672369EFA1.jpg
I own a Nikon D90 and a Leica DLux 6. Frankly I use the Leica mostly as it is much easier to always have it with me due to its light weight. Today my goal was to take some pictures at a large public garden (Kew Gardens in London). So I grabbed the D90 and the 12-24mm f4 lens. Not having used them in awhile, I was surprised at the weight of the body and the lens. It really weighed me down! Here's my question to those much more familar with the new crop of lighter weight, mirrorless...
Have been on the fence between a D-LUX 6 and a Sony RX100 II and have a strong preference for the Leica. The problem is I cannot live without a polarizer filter, living in a coastal town and all. There is, supposedly, an adapter for the 6 that was initially marketed for the LX7 but I cannot find one review or post anywhere by a 6 owner stating that it worked (it requires the front plate of the lens to be removed, which LX7 owners have successfully done). Perhaps the lens design on the 6 is...
Hi, Just got my D-lux 6. It seems very promising. But although I've read the manual, I can't seem to work out how to do these simple things: 1) Move the focus point (in single point focus mode). It's centered by default and the manual says it can be moved (by using the arrow keys) but I simply can't make that work. 2) Using iHDR. I can't seem to find this menu point at all. I absolutely can't make out how this works. Help is appreciated. Thanks! - Jonas
What a disappointment. While on my trip to Florida, the zoom lever on my LX7 started sticking. It still works, but often sticks and I have to exert pressure to get it to move. Once it has "broken loose" it will operate OK for a while. It always starts sticking again. No liquids or food got under the lever. I've slid a piece of paper under and around the lever hoping to dislodge whatever and stop the behavior. No luck. Any other solutions? Anyone else had this problem? Given Panasonic's...
I continue to be fascinated by the Leica X Vario. I have a few questions that maybe you folks can answer: Can you set the camera to shoot in a 16:9 aspect ratio? I've grown to enjoy that format and prefer to compose with it rather than crop to it during PP. Is there a live histogram available? I use the live histogram 100% of the time on my D-Lux 6. It really helps me dial in exposure, making the latitude of raw files much less necessary for everyday exposures. How is exposure compensation...
