Thephoblographer reviews the Leica D-Lux 6 and writes;
“I’ve already gone into how the LCD can be tragically deceiving. You’re better off ignoring it in favor of viewing the images later in Lightroom or whatever you use for post. The D-Lux 6 can take some truly beautiful images with colors abound, given the best light of course.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Leica D-Lux 6 and writes;
“The Leica D-LUX 6’s video capabilities have had a pretty radical overhaul since the D-LUX 5. Most significantly, it’s now possible to record AVCHD movie clips at up to 60p frame rate at Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) or HD (1,280 x 720) resolution, and that’s using 60 frames per second sensor data.”

Pocket-lint reviews the Leica D-Lux 6 and writes;
“As a compact model, you get all the benefits of point and shoot automatic controls, as well as manual shooting options. The ISO range offers sensitivity running up to 12,800 in the extended range, although our tests of the Lumix LX7 suggest that sticking to the low-mid range of ISO will garner the best results.”
