The Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera puts creativity in your hands, with the venerable name of Leica to back it up. A 12.1Mp CMOS sensor and the 24x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 4.5-108mm ASPH. lens work together to provide beautifully detailed images. The lens travels the spectrum of focal lengths from 25mm wide angle to 600mm super-telephoto - making it a versatile zoom lens, able to capture your vision in any shooting situation. Additionally, the Power OIS image stabilizer ensures that no matter what you're shooting your images will be clean, even when shooting handheld.

The V-Lux 3 shoots still images in JPEG or RAW image files. The photographer can choose from program, aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual on the mode dial. Additional focusing modes like macro, macro zoom, and AF tracking are an option for shooting stills; metering modes such as multi-field, center-weighted, and spot can be chosen from. ISO ranges from 100-3200 and a wide range of shutter speeds give you the flexibility you need to capture the images you desire. Of course, 1920 x 1080/60p high definition videos can be made using the V-LUX 3, as well.

The V-Lux 3 utilizes a 3.0" LCD monitor for composition and playback. The camera also has a color LCD viewfinder with an adjustable diopter to set the viewfinder for your vision. The built-in flash provides a number of setting options, while the hot shoe enables connection of an external flash as well. A mic or remote can be connected to the V-Lux 3 via the 2.5mm mic jack for recording high-quality audio with video or hands-free shooting, respectively.

The camera uses SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards for storing your images and videos, and has an additional 70MB internal memory. Other highlights include a self-timer, burst shooting modes for up to 60 consecutive shots per second, and an HDMI out for a one-cable connection to your HDTV. Additionally, the V-LUX 3 comes with a free download of Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Premiere Elements for photo and video editing on your computer.

The Ideal Camera For Every Situation
With a Leica V-Lux 3, your creative freedom is boundless. Its 24x super-telephoto zoom makes capturing sweeping landscapes just as easy as bringing even the smallest details into the foreground. Thanks to its newly developed 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor, the camera captures images in exceptional quality. At the same time, the video capability of the V-Lux 3 allows the recording of moving pictures in full-HD quality
Extreme Range of Focal Lengths
What makes the V-Lux 3 so special is its 24x super-telephoto zoom lens. This Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 4.5-108mm f/2.8-5.2 ASPH. lens has an enormous range of focal lengths covering the spectrum from a 25mm wide angle to a 600mm super-telephoto lens. On the one hand, its 25mm wide angle setting enables photographers to strongly emphasis perspectives, while on the other hand, its 600mm telephoto setting captures pin-sharp details of objects even at extremely long distances - even when shooting handheld, thanks to the efficiency of its Power OIS image stabilizer. If you like to shoot landscapes, architecture, sport, travel, portraits or wildlife, the flexibility of its lens makes the V-Lux 3 the ideal camera for every situation
Exceptional Image Quality
The newly developed 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor guarantees the exceptional image quality of the Leica V-Lux 3. It ensures that images are almost totally free of noise - even under adverse lighting conditions and when using high-sensitivity settings. With its high contrast range and natural, perfectly saturated colors, the V-Lux 3 sets entirely new standards in its class - for still pictures and video alike
Video in Full-HD Quality
The V-Lux 3 captures full-HD video in AVCHD format with 1920 × 1080 pixels and 60 full frames per second. This 1080/60p video format not only guarantees the perfect rendition of fast movement in outstanding detail, but is also ideal for conversion to alternative resolutions and refresh rates. For instance, conversion to MP4 format, which can be quickly and conveniently transferred for use on mobile devices and the Web without any further conversion. An integrated stereo microphone with a wind-noise filter ensures outstanding audio quality. A deletion option for individual sequences means that editing can begin in the camera without having to download the data to a software-based editing suite
Sensationally Fast
Speed has the utmost priority in the V-Lux 3. The autofocus system reacts in less than a tenth of a second and reliably captures fast-moving subjects. The continuous-shooting rate is also impressive. The V-Lux 3 delivers consecutive burst shooting at a rate of up to 12 frames per second, even at full resolution; at a reduced resolution of 3.5 megapixels it manages a fantastic 60 frames per second. Users will capture every action and important moment, even when shooting sports or wildlife

      As a professional photographer I have never owned a "point and shoot". I would put the Lux 3 in that category but I can't imagine that there is a better one. 600mm and 60fps...are you kidding? Last time I checked, my really expensive stuff gets about 12fps. Amazing....

      Does not feel like a typical Leica.

      Zoom lens does not have the resolution of my V-Lux 20. Very disappointing.

        Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

        Leica V-LUX3 a "CLONE" of a Panasonic DMC-FZ150K ?????????I found information about the Japanese made Leica lenses how these lenses take 40 minutes for each element to beindividually ground, polished and tested then the 1 to 4 coatings are added,(this camera has 14 lens elements) onLieca made imported machines, whereas the Panasonic models use mass production techniques on there own machines toa (minimum) Leica spec but with there own coatings including the own brand PanasonicBlack Box Nano surface coating,parts and picture processing firmware (Panny uses its own Venus engine) for both have largedifferences as do the CCD qualities and manufacturing tolerances the CCD's are made by different manfacturers the ones forthe Leica brand are all tested,differences in lens quality and coatings and firmware make the better colours and lessabberations @ wide apertures.The V-LUX3 is 22 grams heavier again due to the noticeable extra build quality of all metaland Elecro-mechanical parts thats why Leica give a full unlimited 2 year gaurantee against the 1 year panny.The Leica comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Adobe Preiere Elements 10 that would cost £.Then finally resale value (average second hand)Panasonic DMC-FZ150K £ Leica V-LUX3 £ So there you have it identical apart from a "red badge" !!!! and street cred!You can always tell a Leica ,By the way it takes pictures - and by the pictures it takes

        Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

        This is a very nice camera. A friend of mine used his on an African safari and took great photos, so that is what made me buy this model. It is lightweight and easy to use. I love having the regular view finder so that I can shoot in any light. The zoom option is excellent. The only downside was having to load a tremendous amount of Adobe software onto my computer in order to upload photos. It was very complicated.

          I bought this camera for it's size and glass. It is my first Leica. I have already recommend this camera to family and friends. The camera has already served me well. It's the camera I always have in my bag to scout out new locations. My D90 and D3 with 24-70mm lens is to large and heavy to carry all the time. Great little camera that shoots RAW! In love with Leica!

              Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

              Just returned from a cruise and took 2,000 pix under various conditions and can say without a doubt, this is a wonderful camera. Low light conditions enable those formerly 'impossible' pictures to be briliant with great color balance. Screen is bright (and adjustable) for those sunny back light conditions, and the eyepiece viewfinder is there for those other times. Articulated screen is an absolute must and great for reviewing your captures. Only two minor drawbacks are the 'MENU / SET' button is easily and accidentally pushed - no big deal really; and it would be nice if the play screen could rotate the pictures a bit more easily.

                  Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

                  I was not sure if I should buy the V-Lux 3, having already a V-Lux 1. But the specs looked really good, and I wanted the CMOS sensor.Bottom line: The images are much sharper, and the light sensor is very very good, especially in low light. I can really see a difference in low light, under zoom conditions. This is an awesome camera. I've been using it for a few weeks, and it's taken some getting used to using the menus, which have the look and feel of a Sony or Panasonic product ( I know, made in Japan). The biggest difference is how if feels in your hands. The V-Lux 1 is heavy, and has the feel of a traditional camera, while the V-Lux 3 feels light and plastic, and has strange rubber hinged doors that feel cheap and disposable. However, upon use you can tell that the advanced guts of the V-Lux 3 puts the V-Lux 1 in the shade.Is it worth the extra $$ to get the Leica vs the Panasonic? I would say "no" because the look and finish of the V Lux 3 is so inferior, it's not worth the premium. What you get is a semi pro level great little small camera. If you want heft, feel, quality and dont do a lot of intensive picture taking, or shoot in ideal light conditions, then the V-Lux 1 might be worth looking at. It feels like a quality product. The V-Lux 3 is an awesome camera that feels like a cheap camera. I use an external TTL flash with mine (Panasonic flash)and I get really really excellent photos.

                  The size and the lense are perfect for traveling when you do not want to carry a lot of gear. I wish the feel of the camera were more "solid" in your hand regarding the materials used of the housing.

                  Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

                  I consider myself to be an advanced amateur photographer, and I use my camera mostly for travel, which I do very frequently.

                  I also own a Leica V-Lux 2, which is very good, so when the V-lux 3 came out I was hesitant to buy it because the V-Lux 3 is of course very similar to the V-Lux 2. However I now have no doubt that upgrading to the V-lux 3 was the correct decision, because in my opinion the V-Lux 3 consistently produces better exposed photos in all light conditions, and much less noise in low light.

                  What is not so great about these cameras is price. I do not know whether the price can be reduced to about half or less by buying a Lumix instead, as I have never owned or used a Lumix. Although the hardware seems to be identical, I am not familiar with the results produced by the Lumix.

                  I previously owned Nikon and Canon equivalents of the V-lux 3, and both are very good cameras, but for me there is no doubt that the Leica produces results that are significantly superior.

                  The Leica V-lux 3 is a great camera. Highly recommended.

                      Comments about Leica V-Lux 3 Digital Camera:

                      I bought a D-Lux 4 several years ago to replace my beloved Digilux. Even after purchasing the removable handgrip and viewfinder, I was still frustrated because the D-Lux was physically too small for me to use effectively. The V-Lux 3 is a solution to my problem because it provides me with enough body to hold comfortably. It is light enough to carry easily while traveling so I don't have to lug my heavier body and lenses around to get the picture quality I am looking for.

                        Even though Photography is only a hobby for me, I enjoy taking pictures of wildlife and landscapes. There were a couple of reasons I bought this camera... #1 being the zoom equivalent to 600mm, which is great for what I am using it for. #2 reason being the video portion of the camera. The perfect camera for me so I don't have to keep switching from my DLSR and video camera. I am totally satisfied with the camera and would definitely recommend it. Although I'm not a pro, it's the perfect equipment for what I'm using it for.

                          This was purchased to replace a D Lux 3, that was simply not versatile enough to capture everything when traveling. The camera is easy to use, light to carry all day and gives great quality images. The most amazing trait though is the stunning range of focal lengths. There is no reason to miss any photo opportunities with such a wonderful range.
                          Whilst only having used the camera for a couple of weekends we have taken over 500 shots and simply love getting out of doors to 'play' with it.
                          The only negative I can think of is that manual focus when in macro mode is a bit cumbersome

                            Everything is possible with this camera, it is handy,ligth, compact, it goes from wide angle (24mm) super zoom (600mm);lens is stabilized, I have made amazing pictures with the zoom at 600mm at a speed of 1/50sec open at f5.2. Picture quality is outstanding. It can be used in all circumstances,very low ligth, portrait,cities,art,landscape, macro,sport,wildlife,birds, safaris, family, etc... and I don't speak about video which I did not try yet.
                            The possibilities playing with the different menus are
                            outstanding. Instruction book is easy to use, it can be printed from CDrom on a recto verso and you get a little handy book. This camera is the one of the future with all his functionalities, it can replace every other heavy and bulky camera with one piece of equipment. It is a treasure of technology !

                                  I am really pleased with the telephoto capabilities. Looking forward to some serious evaluation of the quality of the extreme focal length photos

                                    When I first picked up this camera I wasn't sure if it was truly as good as I had hoped. After the first few pictures I took I was amazed at the quality and detail. I have tried several cameras, both DSLRs and point & shoot, but I don't think I have ever had such amazing detail right from the start. GREAT CAMERA....

                                      I am in the air force and just got my camera last week. Yes a very hefty price tag but you get your bang for your buck! These are the ferraris of the camera world. Makes Nikon's and Cannon's curl up like little puppy dogs.
