Leica’s easy-to-use 6MP C-LUX 1

Some people might want a camera with a plethora of options, features, and customization, and that’s all fine and dandy, but for the rest of us who just want some nice pics of the kids at Disneyland, a simple point-and-shoot is fine so long as the quality of snapshots turn out good enough for the family album. The Leica C-LUX 1 is a no-frills camera, designed for easy-to-take pictures with its more than adequate 6 megapixel imaging sensor.

The black and silver design is simple, yet elegant, and the 3.6 x optical Leica DC Vario- Elmarit zoom lens (trying say that 3.6 times fast) lets you get in close without actually getting in close. The LCD display is a bright 2.5-incher, and to keep things easy, of course it comes with autofocus and a short shutter delay. You’ll find PictBridge support, an SD slot, and video recording with sound as well.

No word on pricing or availability on the Leica C-LUX 1, which coincidentally is really a re-branded Panasonic DMC-FX01.
