German camera-maker Leica Camera AG on Friday announced a new compact camera in its D-Lux series in India that is priced at nearly Rs 1 lakh. "Leica D-Lux 7" with automatic exposure mode, manual setting options and a range of video functions would be available by mid-December in the country, the company said in a statement.
With its 17MP resolution and a maximum ISO sensitivity of 25600, the four-thirds sensor of the Leica D-Lux 7 is also ideal for capturing images in low-ambient light conditions.
The camera features a fast Leica DC Vario-Summilux 10.9-34 mm f/1.7-2.8 ASPH zoom lens (equivalent to 24-75 mm in 35 mm format) that, in combination with the camera's four-thirds sensor, delivers better picture quality, claimed the company.
The camera in Wi-Fi module features a touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, USB-C charging capability and a 2.8MP high-resolution electronic viewfinder.
The back of the camera carries a 1.24MP 3-inch LCD touchscreen display to make the assessment of pictures much easier -- allowing fingertip control of the camera.
The camera would also be able to record videos in 4K resolution at a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second.
In addition, "Leica D-Lux 7" is the first camera of the D-Lux line that can be used together with the free "Leica FOTOS" app for wireless transfer of pictures from the camera to iOS or Android devices, the company claimed.
