Elias Plastiras, the reviewer, mentioned the following feature highlights.
On optional accessories for the D-LUX 4:
The hot-shoe can be used for an electronic viewfinder in addition to a flash; both are optional accessories. A hand-grip is also an option.
The viewfinders is especially handy as it’s quite difficult to see the image on the rear LCD screen when you’re outdoors in bright conditions.
On manual controls:
As you can see, we haven’t mentioned anything about dedicated dials for aperture and shutter control, nor a manual focus ring. Instead, the Leica D-LUX 4’s aperture, shutter, and manual focus functions can all be controlled by the joystick on the rear of the camera. And it’s actually very easy to use.
Elias gives the final verdict as:
Overall, the Leica D-LUX 4 compact digital camera is a very nice piece of kit. It looks very stylish, and it takes clear and neutral-looking photos. It has good speed, plenty of manual settings, and its scene modes are very useful.
