Leica D-Lux 4 with accessories
Image by Nokton
After getting the Lumix LX3 in August 2008, I ‘upgraded’ to the D-Lux 4 in October. Both cameras are largely identical. The D-Lux-4 has a different RAW format that can be handled by Capture One versus the LX3 that comes with Silky Pix editor, which is rather slow. Now Adobe has released converters to DNG, it really is not too relevant any more. Obviously both cameras are styled slightly different.
The Leica case is for the D-Lux-3. I modified it a bit so the D-Lux 4 fits better by removing side padding and cutting a hole in the bottom. The D-lux-4 case is now availble, but is a bit more bulky, while the D-Lux 3 case is more useable to my taste. The Lumix LX3 case fits as well, though it’s a bit loose around the grip as it is styled for the LX3 grip.
The view finder is an original 21mm view finder. The 24mm actually is a bit smaller then what the lens sees, and the 21mm seems to be a better fit. The other view finder is a 50mm vintage view finder – this is useful when shooting in 60mm zoom mode.
The wide angle converter is the Panasonic wide angle converter for the LX3. It is fully compatible, except that the D-Lux 4 has no menu option to recognize the wide angle converter.
The filters are a Kenko 46mm circular PL filter and a Kenko 46mm ND-4 filter. These filters are a bit cheaper than the Panasonic branded ones.
The tripod is the Leica mini tripod. The flash shoe protector is a Nikon part (BS-1).
