At this year's Photokina expo held in Cologne, Leica Camera AG presented its new high-performance digital compact camera, the Leica V-Lux 2, combining respected Leica image quality with a compact form factor.

The Leica V-Lux 2 features a Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT 4.5 – 108 mm f/2.8 – 5.2 ASPH super-zoom lens with a range of focal lengths equivalent to 25 – 600 mm in the 35 mm format. The company claims the V-Lux 2 is ideal for almost any situation, from landscapes to finely detailed close-ups.
“The versatile lens and its compact form make the Leica V-Lux 2 the ideal camera for ambitious travel and wildlife photographers. Its enormous range of focal lengths covers almost all photographic situations that usually require the use of camera systems with often annoying lens changes,” said Peter Kruschewski, product manager for Digital Compact Cameras at Leica Camera AG.
The camera is equipped with a 3” LCD display with a 460 000 pixel resolution, and it can be twisted and turned in almost any direction to open up new options for image composition. The camera is also the first Leica digital compact to feature 1080i-AVCHD full HD video capture.
A 24x zoom range is available during video and still capturing and an integrated stereo microphone ensures crystal clear sound quality for video recording. The camera is also capable of high-speed burst shooting, able to take bursts of 11 frames per second at its full resolution of 14.1 MP, or 60 frames a second in 2.8 MP resolution.
The compact camera also comes bundled with a comprehensive software suite which includes Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Premier Elements, helping users perfectly process photo's or video clips taken with the camera.
