The Leica Digilux 3 is one of Leica's professional digital cameras, released back in 2006. Since it isn't one of the newest on the market, its optical zoom and resolution are not the best on the market, despite the high price of the camera. The camera does come with some good features, such as an integral picture stabilizer that protects against camera shake even in harder lighting conditions. One of the nicest features of the Leica Digilux 3 is that it uses traditional operating controls, making it a great camera for consumers who like the setup of 35 mm cameras but want to transition to the picture quality and precision of an expensive digital camera. The camera uses a purely digital Leica mirror reflex system and has exchangeable lenses, something not normally found in digital cameras.
