Extending the Leica Evolution
Leica Camera AG, renowned as the maker of lenses that have
captured some of the world's most memorable photographs,
has now created its first interchangeable lens exclusively for
the digital SLR. The new Leica D lens series (''D'' for digital)
derives from an entirely new design concept. Developed jointly
by Leica Camera AG and Panasonic specifically for digital
photography, this advanced lens fuses leading-edge optical and
digital technologies at an uncompromisingly high level. As it
joins the digital SLR arena, Panasonic has also chosen to adopt
the Four Thirds™* system in order to maximize the advantages
of both image sensor and lens. The new D lens inherits the
smooth tonal expression and rich shading that make Leica
lenses the choice of both professional and amateur
photographers the world over. Anxiously awaited by true
photography aficionados, the new lens helps the LUMIX L1
reach a new stage in the evolution of digital SLR cameras.
The LEICA D VARIO-ELMARIT Lens: Dual-Sided
Aspherical Lenses and a Maximum Aperture of F2.8
This wide-aperture zoom lens provides F2.8-3.5 brightness from
28mm wide-angle to 100mm telephoto (35mm film camera
equivalent). With 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including two glassmolded dual-sided large diameter aspherical lenses, the LEICA D
VARIO-ELMARIT lens delivers a superb optical performance. It
minimizes distortion in wide-angle shots and suppresses the loss of
peripheral resolution. An excellent multi-coating process helps reduce
ghosts and flaring. The lens provides the sharpness, high resolution
and superb color reproduction that convey even the ambience around
a subject. The lens barrel is fitted with an aperture ring for a new level
of easy, intuitive operation. With the new LEICA D VARIO-ELMARIT
lens, the L1 has an entirely different feel from other digital SLR
cameras, and lets you go as far as your creativity will take you.

Minimal Hand-Shake with MEGA O.I.S.
The new D lens features Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S., an
advanced optical image stabilizing system that makes it possible
to take clear, sharp macro and low-light shots. With MEGA O.I.S.,
the Venus Engine operates 4,000 times per second to detect the
amount and direction of hand-shake, and then shifts a corrective
lens accordingly. Light entering the camera is kept on a straight
path as it passes through the lens to the image sensor. Because
the shake is corrected entirely within the lens, the image is
preserved with original quality intact. Built into the lens, the
Venus Engine provides quick, precise image processing for
superb image stabilizing control. With these advanced features,
the L1 can shoot beautiful shots, without a tripod, in situations
where you cannot use a flash or in evening light. You get easier
shooting and a wider range of expressive possibilities to explore.

Intuitive in Form and Function
An Aperture Ring that Responds Intuitively to Your Intent
Full-Time Live View on the Large, High-Resolution LCD
The L1 is much more than a collection of sophisticated
functions. It is designed to be a tool that photographers will
find both comfortable in their hands and a joy to use – a
camera that looks, feels and works the way a finely crafted
camera should. It is designed to deliver total satisfaction – in
operation, performance and results. The camera body is
formed to fit the hands naturally. The controls are laid out to
ensure intuitive operation from the moment you first pick up
the camera. Operation is not forced upon the photographer.
Rather, the camera becomes an extension of your own
expression, a seamless interface between the images you see
in your mind's eye and the advanced digital functions that bring
those images to life. Photographers
will immediately recognize the feel
of the L1, like a camera you've used
many times before. You'll find that
it comfortably, naturally extends
what a digital camera can do. You'll
find that with the L1, human
sensitivity and digital technology
Lightweight,
are beautifully combined.
durable magnesium alloy body
Photographers who appreciate the natural feeling of creating
photo images place top priority on the camera's operation. The L1
takes operation a big step beyond conventional digital SLR lenses
by adding an aperture ring to the lens barrel, alongside the zoom
ring and wide focus ring. You can set the aperture from 2.8 to 22 in
1/3 EV steps. This combines with the shutter speed dial to give you
quick, precise, intuitive control over the exposure setting. You'll
feel a distinct click as you turn the aperture ring. This not only
enhances your sense of control, it gives you the kind of shooting
joy you feel when photographer and camera become one.
The full-time Live View system is well suited to the coming
generation of digital still cameras that pursue the true "joy of
shooting." The L1's full-time Live View makes it easy to focus and
frame precisely on the 2.5-inch LCD monitor, which has superb
207,000-pixel image quality and a virtually 100% field of view. In this
system, a mirror flips up, directing the same light to both the Live
MOS sensor and the LCD monitor. Full-time Live View operates for
auto focusing. When you're focusing manually, full-time Live View lets
you magnify a part of the image by 10x for
greater focusing precision. The L1's large,
high-image-quality LCD gives you a precise
preview of the depth of field without
darkening*, as the display is bright and
easy to see. Checking the results of the 2axis white balance adjustment on the fulltime Live View screen also assures more
precise adjustment before shooting. These
versatile functions bring forth completely
new shooting styles for SLR cameras, and
Checking the depth of field
expand the possibilities for photo expression.

A Shutter Speed Dial with a Familiar Feel
The shutter speed dial and shutter button are positioned along
the same axis on the camera top. They feel instantly familiar
to your fingers and provide comfortable, intuitive operation. In
manual mode, you can use the shutter speed dial and cursor
button to set the speed from 1/4,000 to 60 seconds, or you can
select bulb shooting. The 1/160-sec X-sync speed provides a
wide response to flash shots. Because the dial is right there
for you to see, operation is quick and easy.
* The LCD may become dark at times depending on the subject and the camera setting.

The Birth of Beauty
Beautiful High-Resolution Images: 7.5-Megapixel 4/3-type Live MOS Sensor for the Best of Both CMOS and CCD Sensors
The Rich Tonal Quality of the CCD,
the Low Power Consumption of CMOS
The L1 uses a high-imagequality 7.5-megapixel 4/3-type
Live MOS sensor. The ideal
sensor for digital SLR cameras,
the Live MOS sensor delivers
the same high image quality as
a CCD sensor with the low
power consumption of a CMOS
sensor. This advanced sensor draws on MOS signal amplification
technology but uses a simpler structure. It's molded as a single
unit onto a flexible circuit board, reducing both the number of
signal exchanges and the contact resistance from wiring. A
process technology with 5-V activation reduces heat and noise
while improving the image quality of the Live View function.
A Wide Dynamic Range for Richer Image Gradation
The Live MOS sensor featured in the L1 uses a new readout
circuit that reduces the three control wirings required with a
CMOS sensor to the two wirings required with a CCD sensor.
This provides a greater photoreceptive area per pixel than a
conventional CMOS sensor can provide. The result is the type of
wide dynamic range that makes it possible to capture detailed,
expressive images with rich gradation.

The Four Thirds Standard:
Designed to Maximize Image Quality
in Digital Cameras
For accurate imaging, the light must strike the image
sensor at a perpendicular angle. When a lens designed for
a film camera is used, light from the edge of the image
area enters at an angle, resulting in
Lens mount diameter
inaccurate color reproduction or
dark areas. The L1 uses a lens
mount with about twice the diameter
of the image circle. Light strikes the
sensor at an almost perpendicular
angle, so images are clear and

accurate all the way to the edges.

Low-Noise Processing and Pinned Photodiode Array
Reduce Image Graininess
The Live MOS sensor not only slashes noise, it embeds the
photodiodes deeply into the silicon layer, where they are
resistant to noise generated on the photodiode surface. This
suppresses the rough image texture that is sometimes
noticeable (like viewing an image through an unwashed
window) when shooting in dim lighting, giving you clear,
smooth shots even in difficult conditions.

Protecting the Digital SLR Image Sensor:
Dust Reduction System
One of the risks with a digital SLR
camera is that, during a lens
change, dust or dirt could make its
way into the camera and adhere to
the image sensor. This would show
up as a flaw in the same location of
every photo you shoot. Even worse,
the foreign matter could damage
the image sensor. The only remedy
would be to have the image sensor
replaced – a costly undertaking.
The L1 solves this problem with a
supersonic wave Dust Reduction
System. Each time the camera is
turned on, a filter positioned
between the low pass filter and
shutter vibrates around 30,000
times a second to shake away dust
or dirt. The loosened dust is
collected by a dust adhesion
section located under the filter.
Because the area between sensor
and filter is completely airtight, no dust adheres to the low
pass filter or image sensor. This advanced supersonic wave
filter requires no maintenance. If you use a digital SLR camera
with interchangeable lenses, this kind of advanced protection
against dust is absolutely essential.

Imaging Expression
Venus Engine III: Extraordinary Processing Power to Reproduce Even Nuances in Texture and Atmosphere
Rich, Life-like Colors
The L1 features the Venus Engine III
LSI. This new image-processing LSI
precisely reproduces the magnificent
images that are captured by the Leica
D lens and sent to the Live MOS sensor.
Its color expression maximizes the
beauty of the original image to produce
highly natural picture quality. This superb level of performance
makes the Venus Engine III an ideal match for the digital SLR camera.
Smooth, Expressive Photos with Less Noise
The L1 noise-reduction system distinguishes luminance noise
from the chromatic noise that diminishes image quality, and
selectively targets the chromatic noise. Even when shooting at
a high ISO setting*, you can capture abundant detail and get
smooth, clear shots with minimal noise. *The ISO setting ranges from
the standard ISO 100 level to the ultra high-sensitive ISO 1600.
The Quick Response You Need to Catch Every Moment
The L1 is built for spectacular high-speed shooting, with a
startup of only 0.8 second and burst shooting at 3 frames per
second. The shutter works as fast as you do. The L1 has
unlimited consecutive shooting. You can keep shooting until the
memory card is full, and choose the best shots later.
Color: Standard
Color: Dynamic
Color: Nature
Low Power Consumption for More Shots and
Longer Shooting Sessions
The Venus Engine III combines superb speed and precision
with low power consumption. Together with the Live MOS
sensor's low power consumption, this means more shooting
time between battery charges. Enjoy extended shooting
sessions without worrying about the battery, even while taking
advantage of the L1's many digital functions.
Film Mode: Choose the Imaging Mode that
Best Suits Your Creative Intent
The L1 introduces a new Film mode function that lets you select
from several different image looks according to the subject you're
shooting and your creative intent. When shooting in color, you can
choose from Standard, Dynamic, Nature, and Smooth. With black
and white, you can choose from Standard,
Dynamic, and Smooth. You can also adjust the
contrast, sharpness, saturation and noise
reduction levels, to reproduce exactly the mood
and atmosphere you want. With these
functions, the L1 is a digital camera that gives
you the same kind of flexibility and satisfaction
you enjoy when choosing film for a film camera.
Color: Smooth
Black and White: Standard
Built-In Flash for Lighting Versatility
Choose from five flash settings, or use Bounce
Lighting or 1st Curtain/2nd Curtain Sync.
Exposure can be adjusted ±2 EV in 1/3 EV
steps. A hot shoe is provided. L1 compatible
flashes (sold separately) allow TTL auto
adjustment. The new FP Lighting function also
synchronizes the flash at the lightning shutter
speed of 1/4000 sec. This greatly expands
shooting possibilities by allowing more
versatile and precise lighting control.

A Variety of Light Metering Methods and
Focusing Areas to Match Your Shooting Needs
Three light metering methods let you read delicate lighting
differences and accurately match shooting conditions. Use
Intelligent Multiple light metering to divide the image frame
into 49 blocks for multiple-zone light measurement. Or choose
either Center Weighted or Spot light metering. As for the
focusing area, the auto focus system employs a TTL phase
difference detection system with three measuring points
across a wide image area. You can also specify a particular
point as the focal point. This can be useful in certain shooting
situations or shooting techniques.

*Based on the CIPA standard. Using the Panasonic SD Memory Card and supplied batteries. The CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) creates standards for measuring battery life. CIPA measurement method: Switch on the power and LCD, begin shooting in 30 seconds, switch between telephoto and wide angle every 30 seconds, fire the flash every other shot. After
each series of 10 shots, turn the camera off until the battery cools. Ambient conditions: 23ºC temperature and 50% humidity. The battery life differs depending on the condition of storage or use, and the environment. The number of recordable pictures varies depending on the recording interval time. If the recording interval time becomes longer, the
number of recordable pictures decreases.
