Introducing Leica LUX, a continuation of Leica’s legendary optical engineering skills, where cutting-edge technology meets unparalleled imaging capabilities.

Leica LUX is more than just a camera app; it is a companion for those moments when your physical Leica camera isn’t within reach — or if you have yet to experience the pleasure of shooting with a Leica. Whether you’re capturing a spontaneous moment on the go or carefully composing a shot using manual controls, Leica LUX ensures that every photo reflects the dependability and authenticity that Leica is known for.

Leica LUX lets you simplify the photographic process and capture life’s moments with clarity. As the ultimate professional camera app for iPhone, Leica LUX is bringing Leica’s iconic image look to iPhone photography, catering to everything from quick snapshots to advanced photography in various genres like travel, street, portrait, and more.

Unlock the Iconic Look of Leica Lenses

Leica LUX enables you to step into the world of legendary Leica lenses. In Aperture Mode, iPhone photographers can capture images with digital replicas of various classic Leica lenses, such as the Summilux-M 28 f/1.4 ASPH and Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. Leveraging Leica’s proprietary image processing engine, these lens simulations let you experience the distinctive look and beautiful bokeh that Leica lenses are known for. Now, your iPhone can capture images with the unique aesthetic of Leica’s legendary M-lenses — with new lenses being added to Leica LUX every month.

Dive Into a World of Leica Looks

In the tradition of fine German engineering, Leica LUX builds on Leica’s own color science to offer the same color grading and film presets found in Leica cameras, with options like Leica Classic, Leica Contemporary, and Leica Black & White. With Leica LUX, your iPhone camera becomes a gateway to a world of artistic expression, rich textures, and soulful nuances. Each Leica Look is designed to enhance your images, adding depth and character to every shot.

Experience Manual Control Like Never Before

Effortlessly capable and intuitive in Auto Mode, Leica LUX also empowers photographers with unmatched manual control for limitless creativity. With controls such as:

• Exposure Compensation
• Shutter Speed
• White Balance
• Manual Focus
• Various Focusing Modes
• .and more

Every aspect of your photo is precisely tailored to your vision. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or have just discovered photography, Leica LUX gives you the tools to craft stunning images with complete creative freedom.

With Leica LUX, your iPhone becomes a tool for capturing moments that transcend the ordinary. Let your images speak volumes, sparking conversations and inspiring awe with their unique aesthetic.

Like the color effects, hate the price.

I really like Leica color but $70 a year for ( basically) color looks seems extreme. Almost all apps have gone insane. Remember when an app like this would be 99 cents, it was yours,and they'd update it for years before asking for a upgrade fee?
Yes, this app does color well and yes it simulates focal lengths ( lenses) pretty well but I just can't get over how little they're giving for the price. Oh wait, it's a " Leica" branded product....but wait..it's just an iPhone...hmmmmm

Excellent addition to the Leica World

I am teaching an Environmental Photography college class at SJSU soon, and I am planning on having all students use their iPhone and this app. Perfect tool to understand aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, focal length,… without having them to buy a “bulky” camera (it is a quote from one of the student!). On my iPhone 15 Pro Max the results are in line (visually) with my own Leica M11 and the Summilux lenses. The big difference is when you zoom in, huge gap in resolution and overall definition. But, that is an iPhone limitation. Thanks Leica for bringing innovative photography tools to us, and the youngest photographers.

Good for keeping your iPhone photos consistent with your Leica cameras.

The app has the basic controls you would expect from an iPhone camera app, but with a simplified UI that will feel familiar to current Leica users. The “Leica Looks” are really what make LUX worth keeping since they adjust your JPEGs to match the standard film simulations offered in their digital cameras.

Subscriptions will unlock several more simulations and exposure controls, but the free version is more than capable enough to use as is.

I’d like for a future release to offer a widget one can add to either the Today View or preferably the Lock Screen.

So far, I’ve not experienced any crashes or performance issues with LUX version 1.0.2 [41] on my Xs running iOS 17.5.1.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences with the Leica LUX app! We're glad to hear that you appreciate the simplified UI and the “Leica Looks” feature. Your suggestion for a widget is fantastic, and we'll definitely consider it for future updates. Your feedback is invaluable as we continue to enhance the app.
