Leica V-Lux 4 Reviews

Imaging-resource reviews the Leica V-Lux 4 and writes;
“The V-LUX 4’s video capabilities look impressive, especially given that powerful, bright, stabilized lens. It’s possible to record AVCHD movie clips at up to 60p frame rate at Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) or HD (1,280 x 720) resolution, and that’s using 60 frames per second sensor data. You can also opt for MPEG-4 capture at either resolution, as well as at VGA (640 x 480).”

One Response to “Leica V-Lux 4”

    This little camera is simply amazing. I also own and shoot with a 1d series professional Canon camera with L class lenses. To say the least this is a heavy system to carry around. I bought this Leica for a walking around camera, but now it is my goto camera for almost everything. The pictures it produces are stunningly sharp – more so than what my big Canon and L lenses produce. The colors have that “Leica look”.

    The lens has a very long reach and maintains a constant 2.8 aperture. It has built in HDR and a number of other DLSR features. The optical viewfinder is outstanding and close to a traditional one. The only complaint I have is that the autofocus is a bit slow with moving objects.

    This camera does more than I expected and it keeps my expensive Canon equipment sitting unused in my camera bag.
