The world as your playground with the new Leica V-LUX30
The Leica V-Lux 30 is the perfect camera for everybody who travels around the world with their eyes open to look at things differently and capture those moments.
A huge range of possibilities
The Leica V-Lux 30 offers a lot of options, it has a 16× optical-zoom range going from wide-angle and macro shots to telephoto shots of distant subjects.
The Leica DC Vario-Elmar 1:3.3-5.9 4.3-68.8 mm ASPH zoom lens (24-384 mm, 35-mm equivalent) is constructed with very precise, sperical lenses which enable an enormous range of focal lengths from 24 to 384 mm – for video as well as still pictures. The camera also has a continuous shooting mode (burst mode), which allows you to capture ten images per second at full resolution (14.1 MP), and a 3D image-capture mode.
The Leice V-Lux 30 can capture video in full-HD (1920 x 1080i) including GPS information where it was shot. The camera uses the M-JPEG format which uses 50% less memory, but still produces the same high image quality.
It’s built for easy use
The camera has an LCD touch screen display which offers the ultimate in convenient handling. The menu is very familiar in use and most features can be changed by simply touching the screen. Most features are just within reach by your fingertips. You can easily browse trough the images taken and quickly enlarge them by tapping on the screen. A video start button is located on top of the camera, so that is easy to start recording.
Integrated GPS function
The EXIF data of every image will contain the geographical coordinates of the location and the local time recorded by the fully integrated GPS module.
This information makes it easy to sort images in slideshows on social networks, images portals and map services by location and time. An interesting little extra is that the GPS function can show other sightseeing points and places in the neighboorhood. The Leica V-Lux 30 has access to over 1 million points of interest.
