New Leica V-LUX 20

Leica have unveiled a new Compact in the form of the V-LUX20. Like most compact ‘consumer’ Leica cameras this is remarkably similar to a Panasonic – the TZ10/ZS7 to be precise – with a bigger price tag and in this case, one or two inferior features, the main one being that of the 720p HD video being in Motion JPEG format rather than AVCHD. One great feature insluded in this camera is GPS for Geotagging of photographs.

The summary of features:

  • 12.1 MP sensor
  • 12x Optical zoom (giving the equivilent of 25-300mm)
  • 3″ LCD at 460K resolution
