Leica V-Lux (Typ 114)

Fast throughout the entire zoom range Travel, sports, or other outdoor adventures – the Leica V-Lux is simply the ideal camera for them all. Thanks to its enormous zoom range of 25 to 400 mm, time-consuming lens changes and heavy extra equipment are now a thing of the past. It covers every photographic situation from wide-angle, standard, and telephoto photography to macro close-ups down to a distance of only 3 cm. With initial apertures of f/2.8 (wide angle) and f/4 (telephoto), its Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 9.1–146 mm f/2.8–4 ASPH. lens enables sharp and finely detailed exposures, even with distant subjects. Faster and more reliable autofocus The Leica V-Lux excels with lightning-fast autofocus. It precisely captures every scene and subject in only 0.2 seconds at the longest telephoto setting and 0.11 seconds in wide-angle mode (the times are for focusing from infinity to 2 m from the subject) – even when subjects are moving fast. The speed of its continuous-shooting mode is equally impressive and, with up to 12 frames per second at full resolution, makes the V-Lux the perfect choice for sports and wildlife photography. Razor-sharp 4K video Still-picture and video camera in one: at the press of a single button, the Leica V-Lux records moving pictures in 4K, the high-definition video format with four times the resolution of full-HD. This means four times the detail and four times the picture quality – that is so excellent that even frames grabbed from video can stand alone as brilliant photos. For moving pictures that become true-to-life memories

Excellent picture quality thanks to a large sensor Even in unfavorable light and at high ISO settings, the large 1″ sensor of the Leica V-Lux guarantees exceptionally bright and clear pictures – pictures that are rich in detail and fascinate with natural colours. In combination with the high speed of the lens, the sensor expands the creative scope available for the exploration of planes of focus and depth of field and makes the V-Lux the ideal Leica to take along wherever you go. Practical by nature in both design and handling The looks and the first class materials and finish of the new V-Lux are enough to tell that it couldn’t be anything but a Leica. The features of the camera are grasped intuitively. And the change between automatic and manual control couldn’t be easier. This leaves more time to concentrate on the picture that, thanks to the multi-axis rotate-and-tilt function of the 3″ LCD monitor, can be captured with ease at any angle from ground level to a bird’s-eye view. Additional the integrated Wi-Fi module allows remote control from a smartphone or tablet. All you need is the free Leica C Image Shuttle app. Wonderful outlook with the integrated viewfinder The 2.4 megapixels have a lot to say when it comes to fast and precise judgment of the prefect composition of a subject – even in bright sunlight. The same settings are displayed in the integrated OLED electronic viewfinder of the V-Lux as on its monitor. A big advantage for wearers of glasses: it offers individual diopter compensation.
