Review with using the LEICA compact digital camera C-LUX3.
The Leica C compact camera series has a simple appearance without the original Panasonic’s somewhat prominent design one-pointedness, where the usual red badge asserts LEICA’s presence.
The C-LUX3 has a wider shooting range than the C-LUX1 and C-LUX2, with 25 mm at the wide-angle end and 125 mm at the telephoto end, which is more than adequate for a compact camera.
I once used its successor, the LEICA C, but I rarely used it for general snapshots because I rarely extended the range to 200 mm, and even if I relied on image stabilization, the slightest carelessness would result in a blurred picture.
The C-LUX2 is equipped with the thin BP-DC6 battery, which fits easily in a pocket. The BP-DC6 battery is used in many models with different model numbers, so it is nice to know that there are plenty of compatible products on the market.
The glossy white body adopted for this model is very stylish.
The beauty of the C-LUX is that it is more compact than the D-LUX series.
Although the C-LUX3 has a small sensor, it has 10 megapixels, so it can take pictures equivalent to those taken with an ordinary smartphone.
