Leica V-Lux 30 camera lens
The photographic options offered by the Leica V-Lux 30 digital camera and its 16× optical-zoom range cover everything from wide-angle and macro shots to telephoto shots of distant subjects. Extremely precise aspherical lenses in the construction of its Leica DC Vario-Elmar 1:3.3-5.9 4.3-68.8 mm ASPH. zoom lens (24-384 mm, 35-mm equivalent) enable an enormous range of focal lengths from 24 to 384 mm - for video as well as still pictures. The Leica V-Lux 30 camera is made even more versatile by a continuous shooting mode (burst mode), allowing the capture of an impressive ten images per second at full resolution (14.1 MP), and a 3D image-capture mode. Another highlight of the Leica V-Lux 30 is its amazingly efficient video recording format: it records videos in 1920 × 1080i AVCHD full-HD including GPS data and, in contrast to the usual M-JPEG format, uses about 50% less memory - for the same brilliant image quality.
