Leica V-Lux 30 is Affordable (for a Leica)

 |  |  |  May 26, 2011


Generally, when I write about Leica digital cameras, it’s to mock the things for the crazy high prices as much as to talk about the cool design and performance of the cameras. Leica has a new digital camera that it is showing off today that lacks some of that cool retro style that I like in the expensive offerings and makes up for that somewhere that matters most with many of us – price.

The new camera is called the V-Lux 30, and it will sell for $749 (USD). That is a lot of money for a point-and-shoot that has no interchangeable lenses, but in the Leica realm, that is a downright bargain. For that much loot, you get a 15.1MP sensor with a 16x zoom lens. The camera can record HD video at up to 1080i resolution and use the full 16x zoom range doing it.

The camera also has a 3D mode of some sort and integrated GPS. That GPS allows for geotagging images and the camera has a POI database to help guide you on your travels. The rear LCD is a 3-inch touchscreen allows touch control and has a resolution of 460K pixels.

The Leica V-Lux 30 should be available sometime this June.
