Leica V-Lux 30 is the perfect camera for seeing the world from totally new perspectives

Leica has announced the V-Lux 30 superzoom compact featuring an image-stabilized wide-angle 16x zoom lens (24-384mm equivalent). The Leica V-Lux 30 superzoom camera also offers 1080i Full HD movie recording in the AVCHD format, 10fps continuous shooting at full 14.1MP resolution, built-in GPS, and can generate 3D images. Rounding off the features set is a 3″ touch-sensitive screen. The new Leica V-Lux 30 superzoom camera has a Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens. An integrated stereo microphone with an electronic wind noise filter guarantees a crystal-clear soundtrack.
Thanks to the integrated GPS function, the camera records the geographical coordinates of the location and the local time for every shot and saves them in the Exif data of the image files. When travelling, the V-Lux 30 can also display the sightseeing highlights of the immediate neighborhood (1,000,000 so-called “Points of Interest”).

The Leica V-Lux 30 comes complete with Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and Adobe Premiere Elements 9 software, and will be available from June 2011 at a price of £550 with a choice of two different camera cases: The strong and resilient leather case and the soft leather case.
