LeicaLeica V-LUX 20 digital camera : Leica Camera AG has announced the Leica V-LUX 20, a 12.1 effective megapixel digital compact camera with a powerful 12x optical zoom lens and built-in GPS tagging, making it ideal for recording special memories when travelling - wherever you are in the world. The integrated, high-performance Leica DC-VARIO-ELMAR 4.1-49.2mm f/3.3-4.9 ASPH. zoom lens with a focal range of 25-300mm (35mm equivalent) means the Leica VLUX 20 is perfect for any photographic situation. Whether shooting expansive landscapes, detailed close-ups or shots of distant subjects using the super-telephoto setting, the Leica V-Lux 20 captures them all in breath-taking quality. The Leica V-LUX 20 will be available from May 2010.

GPS tagging with Leica V-LUX 20 digital compact camera
The Leica V-LUX 20 is the first Leica camera to feature GPS tagging. For anyone travelling regularly – whether on exotic safaris, family beach holidays or even those important business trips – this innovative feature allows photographers to record the exact geographical co-ordinates of their location (in the Exif data of each photo) automatically, as well as the local time for every shot, ensuring the user always has a useful and accurate record of their trip. In addition, 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.

Leica VLUX 20 camera adds extra location-based information to photography
The built-in GPS feature of the new Leica VLUX 20 camera also makes archiving and organizing photos quick and easy, during or after a trip. Furthermore, for photographers posting images on social networks, image portals or map sites such as Google Maps or Google Earth, the data automatically reveals exactly when and where the photos were taken (GPS tagging may not function in China and neighboring regions. Strength of satellite signal reception depends on location, and when restricted, positioning data may be recorded inaccurately or not at all).

Capture HD video with Leica V-LUX 20 camera
For those who want to make movies as well as still images, the Leica V-LUX 20 enables movie recording in HD video 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 Leica V-LUX 20’s generous three inch LCD display has a diagonal of 7.5cm and a resolution of 460,000 pixels, and offers an extremely bright, sharp view for precise composition and framing of shots, as well as accurate quality control for captured shots in playback mode.

Leica V-LUX20 offers creative photo effects through advanced settings
Beautifully styled in a matt black finish, the Leica V-LUX20 has been designed with simple, ergonomic controls and user-friendly menus, and offers fully automatic functions for those who prefer to ‘point and shoot’. It also provides a complete range of manual shutter speed and aperture settings for more creative freedom and image control. In addition, the integrated image stabilisation assists the photographer by reducing the chance of blurred pictures, whether due to camera shake or difficult lighting conditions. The compact dimensions and light weight of the camera also make it easy to pack into a bag or rucksack, or simply carry in a pocket, so users can ensure the Leica V-LUX 20 is with them on every trip.
