Leica 18194 First Impressions

The Leica 18194 is small and fast. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. I am so impressed with this Leica 18194! A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid.

Leica 18194 Final Thoughts

"It takes practice."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. A great camera for the money and my needs! I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.

2. Leica 18489 Leica Digital Camera

Leica 18489 First Impressions

"All in my Pelican case."

This camera has so many features for its size. I'm still playing around with it. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Looks amazing and excited to try it. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.

Leica 18489 Final Thoughts

"Decent battery life."

The stability at long zoom was fantastic. Where this Leica 18489 really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. But overall I really liked this bundle and the quality is awesome! I've researched this Leica 18489 A LOT and I only heard great things. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty.

Leica 19116 First Impressions

"I love the new Leica 19116."

No other Leica Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Leica 19116. I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. I am so impressed with this Leica 19116! It took me a while to figure it out. I wanted something to capture my kids activities.

Leica 19116 Final Thoughts

"That is a bargain."

I am so impressed with this Leica 19116! Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Leica Digital Camera. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50.

"I also could afford it."

"Really love my Leica 10772!"

So i bought this kit under a month ago and I'm in love with it. I love all the accessories included with my new Leica 10772 camera. I took a 3 hour workshop on how to use the camera and I am good to go. This is an excellent camera for beginners. Servo is accurate enough to keep it on.

I would highly recommend this Leica 10772 and bundle. My family pictures will be great from now on. I shot video of my 5 year old son riding his bike today. I received it and it works well with my other Leica lenses. All other cameras in this category are much more expensive.

Leica 19045 Final Thoughts

"Love my new Leica 19045!"

I needed a Leica Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. It will take some getting used to. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen.
