The 2004 Leica Digilux 2 and Panasonic DMC-LC1 were developed in collaboration between Leica and Panasonic K.K. The Digilux 2 and DMC-LC1 are effectively the same high quality fixed-lens compact digital camera, featuring:

  • Magnesium alloy chassis with metal body covers, in chrome for the Digilux 2 and black for the DMC-LC1;
  • Full user control, with Aperture Priority auto exposure, Shutter Priority auto exposure, Program auto exposure and manual exposure modes;
  • Shutter speeds from 8sec to 1/2000sec, with 1/4000sec available in auto exposure modes;
  • 5.24MP 2560 x 1920 2/3" type (6.6mm x 8.8mm) Sony CCD sensor, with ISO sensitivity limited from 100 to 400;
  • 28-90mm (35mm equivalent) / f2.0-f2.4 Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens, built by Panasonic, with auto focusing in normal and close-up modes;

in addition to features usually found in a digital camera.

The Panasonic DMW-LW69 0.82 accessory lens allowed wide angle 23mm (35mm equivalent)effective focal length.

Some production were affected by sensor failure, with sensor replacement available under warranty through the manufacturer or Leica.
