Cost and Performance
The cost of the digital Leica cameras may seem expensive, but they are comparable to similar cameras sold by other companies. Although particularly suited for specialized photography operations, they provide basic photography options for the hobby photographer seeking a dependable, easy to use camera.
The entire Leica brand produces lightweight small cameras that are ideal for taking travel, nature and other photos requiring superior image quality. They can be used indoors or outdoors and are able to take long range and close up photos equally well. The range of cameras available is an indication of the popularity of the cameras, which were first produced almost a hundred years ago.
Wide Lens Options
If you are in the market for a camera that offers wide lens options, the digital Leica camera range is highly respected for cameras that provide the specifications for this function and are extremely well designed. The amount of distortion that occurs with the lens wide open is far less when comparing cameras from other major brands. This lack of distortion makes scenery photography possible at very high quality. For travelers who want to take once in a life time photos of an overseas trip, this function alone makes these cameras a highly attractive option.
In the past, non-digital cameras providing the functions available on a Digital Leica Camera were forced to take large bags with extra lenses and other equipment. Leica cameras and their accessories are so light and small their portability is exceptional. This makes traveling on board airlines with weight and bag size restrictions a simple process, adding to the appeal of the camera.
For new and inexperienced photographers, as well as those more experienced, arguably an extremely useful feature of a Leica camera is the focus on simple operation. As a consumer, if you are looking for a camera that is easy to use, yet offers many advanced features, the Leica camera range provides a menu system that is streamlined to provide a “one stop does it all” feature saving you the need to negotiate lots of different menus to find the functions you are looking for. This makes it an ideal camera choice for that “quick can’t be missed” photograph opportunity.
