Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Leica Camera AG presents a new digital compact camera featuring a 15.1 megapixel sensor (14.1 MP effective) – the Leica V-Lux 30. In comparison to its forerunner model, the new camera has a Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with an extended range of focal lengths and a new LCD touch screen display that guarantees fast and simple handling. Together with its numerous automatic features and manual setting options, this makes the Leica V-Lux 30 a compact and universal camera for the whole family. Additionally, its integrated GPS function and video recording in 1080i-AVCHD Full HD make it the ideal companion for all life’s moments from the family vacation to the backyard barbeque.

The Leica DC Vario-Elmar 4.3 - 68.8mm f/3.3-5.9 ASPH. 16x zoom lens has an extended range of focal lengths equivalent to 24 to 384mm in 35-mm format. Thanks to this high performance lens, the Leica V-Lux 30 delivers outstanding image quality and covers a wide range of photographic opportunities, ranging from wide-angle and macro shots to telephoto shots of distant subjects.

The newly developed 1/2.33-inch CMOS sensor of the Leica V-Lux 30 guarantees outstanding image quality and allows photographers to capture image sequences with the camera’s fast, continuous shooting mode. The Leica V-Lux 30 enables consecutive burst shooting at a rate of ten frames per second at a full resolution of 14.1 megapixels, or 60 frames per second with reduced resolution in a choice of individual aspect ratios. This allows users to reliably capture fast moving subjects - for example when shooting sports or wildlife. Its brand new 3D mode lets users take fascinating, creative images. In this mode, the camera combines two suitable shots from a sequence in a “stereo image pair” and saves them as a 3D image in MPO format.

An outstanding feature, the Leica V-Lux 30's video recording mode offers performance comparable to that of digital camcorders. Particularly, the video mode records in efficient, 1080i-AVCHD-Full-HD format with the entire 16x zoom range available during video recording and an integrated stereo microphone with an electronic wind noise filter guarantees a crystal-clear soundtrack.

As with the complete Leica portfolio, the V-Lux 30 is characterized by timelessly elegant styling and extremely easy handling. With the new 3-inch LCD touch screen, many camera features can now be controlled simply by touching the screen with a fingertip. This generously dimensioned screen has a diagonal of approximately three inches and displays images in outstanding brilliance with a resolution of 460,000 pixels. This provides users with an ideal tool for reliable and precise assessment of images both during composition and after capture.

Thanks to the integrated GPS function, the camera records the geographical coordinates of the location and the local time for every shot and saves them in the Exif data of the image files. When travelling, the V-Lux 30 can also display the sightseeing highlights of the immediate neighborhood (1,000,000 so-called “Points of Interest”). Images posted on social networks, image portals and map sites such as Google Maps or Google Earth reveal exactly when and where they were shot.*

*It is possible that GPS tagging may not function in the People’s Republic of China and neighboring regions. Satellite signal reception may be impossible, depending on the location. In such cases, the positioning data may be recorded inaccurately or not at all.

I am an avid user of different digital cameras and I am truly impressed with the quality of the Leica V-Lux 30. I can use ISO up to 800 without to much noise level with great details for a camera this size and price (I compared it with M9 and EOS 5 MarkII). At the same time it is made easy to change settings around. Obviously the f stop range is very limited with is a clear shortcoming of compact cameras. HDMI filming is great even in low lighting. I could truly recommend this camera and guarantee you that will enjoy it. The camera is fine for beginners as well as a back up for more qualified photographers.

Did not perform in low light...terribly grainy. Facial features often blotchy. Menu completely user unfriendly....even my tech savvy adult kids could not help me. After one year without being dropped or mishandled, the camera suddenly gave me a system failure warning and shut down. I had taken out the memory card to empty it...when I reinserted the card the system failure message flashed. I sent it to Leica who said it would be too expensive to fix. So that was the end of that camera. For me, it was a waste of money. I had bought the Canon G12 for my son at the same time that I bought the Leica for myself. They love that one and I should have bought it as well, since it was less expensive and a FAR better camera. Now I'm looking to buy the Canon G1x perhaps as my next compact camera.

Unless that red dot is worth $500 to you. They are the same camera. While the Leica version might be a bit better for low light photos (slightly better firmware in the Leica holds the shutter open longer), the rest of the camera is the same.

This is my first "review" on Amazon, also, I've never reviewed a camera before so forgive me for lacking technical jargon as I am not a pro fotog either.

I had a little C Lux Leica which I loved but the gf dropped it so here I am.... Technically this camera is waaay more advanced as far as the megapixels and the 1080 video (this also however comes at a price, the size. Its not the smallest camera out there).... But, thats exactly what brings me here: The 1080i AVCHD format!

I will give this camera more stars and update this review as things progress/develop as for right now.... The stills are awesome, lots of pre set modes to chose from, nice focus, etc... The vids are very nice too but I have an issue with saving them onto my Macbook pro running snowleopard 10.6.8. The camera comes bundled with Premier Elements 9 which I have to use to open the vids with and edit (I can NOT see them when I stick the card into my pc or hook up the camera) and there are several options for saving the vids but none of them has worked for me so far.

I called Leica as well as Mac, so far no help.

Here is a thread I started to get help on this:

Anyone else have the same issue? Or, knows the answer? Thanks.
