Just acquired a new toy – the Leica V-Lux 20 – about a month ago.
The V-Lux 20, with a built-in GPS, is the first Leica camera to feature GPS tagging. The Leica V-Lux 20 can display the names of interesting sightseeing locations from a total of 500,000 “points of interest” across 73 countries. Each picture can reveal exactly where it was shot on maps published in social networks, image portals, and map services like Google Maps or Google Earth.
It is a 12.1 effective megapixel digital compact camera with a powerful 12x optical zoom lens.
The V-Lux 20enables movie recording in HD quality. Its intelligent automatic features, such as face recognition, automatic scene modes and smart exposure, are all available in movie mode, together with the camera’s zoom functions. The integrated, high-performance Leica DC-Vario-Elmar 4.1-49.2mm f3.3-4.9 ASPH. zoom lens with a focal range of 25-300mm (35mm equivalent) means the V-Lux 20 is perfect for any photographic situation.
The V-Lux 20 also provides a complete range of manual shutter speed and aperture settings.
