Leica V-Lux 30


$749.00 Released June, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Classic minimalist Leica aesthetic. 16x optical zoom (24-384mm 35mm equivalent). Built-in GPS for geo-tagging of photos.

The Cons:High price point - arguably mostly for the brand name. Much like the D-LUX, it has a nearly identical Panasonic model (TZ20) that is half the price - sans Adobe software.

The Leica V-Lux 30 is a 15.1 megapixel (14.1 MP effective) digital camera designed to offer a range of high quality photo options and 1080i-AVCHD full HD video capability. A follow up to the V-Lux 20, that featured a 12x zoom and a 12.1 MP sensor, the 16x zoom lens on the V-Lux 30 features an extended range of focal lengths, equivalent to 24 to 384 mm in 35-mm format, suitable for a variety of shots such as wide-angle, macro, and telephoto shots of subjects at a distance.
