The V-LUX 2 Digital Camera from Leica is an advanced digital camera with a 24x optical zoom lens. Its extremely versatile zoom range -- 25 to 600mm in 35mm terms -- makes the camera a great option for travel. It is capable of recording 14.1MP images in JPG or RAW format, and can also capture 1080i HD video in the AVCHD format.

You'll have the option of framing images via a 3" articulating LCD screen or at eye-level via an electronic viewfinder (EVF). The LCD features a 460,000 pixel resolution, and can be twisted and turned in almost any direction.

The camera can record images in 14.1MP resolution using its Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 4.5-108mm f/2.8-5.2 ASPH lens. Fast enough for low-light use at the wide end, the camera features a built-in flash for those times when some extra light is necessary to get your shot. The camera supports ISO ranges from 80 to 1600 and shutter speeds from 1 minute to 1/2000 of a second.

The V-LUX 2 is capable of shooting burst images at 11fps at full resolution. If that isn't fast enough for you, the capture can be set to capture 2.8MP images at a stunning 60fps. And, of course, it is also capable of 1080i AVCHD video capture, complete with sound.

Adobe's Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements software are available with the camera as a free online download for photo and video editing. You'll be able to use this software bundle to organize and retouch photos, and perform fine edits on video clips.

Leica DC Vario-Elmarit ASPH Lens
The camera's Leica lens features an impressive 25-600mm (35mm equivalent) zoom range at f/2.8-5.2. It uses an aspherical element for superior image quality over the entire zoom range of the lens. It works with the camera's 14.1MP CMOS image sensor to capture high-contrast images with natural color reproduction and excellent sharpness.
Burst Shooting & HD Video Recording
The camera is capable of shooting 11fps at its full 14.1MP resolution, helping you better capture images during fast action. If more speed is required, you can set the camera to shoot 2.8MP at 60fps! The V-LUX 2 is also fully capable of capturing 1080i HD video at 60fps, complete with audio.
EVF and Articulating LCD
You'll be able to compose images at eye-level using the camera's 202,000 pixel electronic viewfinder (EVF). If you'd prefer to use the camera's 3" LCD to compose images, you'll be happy to know that it is fully articulating -- making it easy to use at waist-level or over your head. The LCD boasts a 460,000 pixel resolution.
Adobe Software Bundle
Photoshop Elements is available as a free online download for image editing and organization, allowing you to retouch and keep track of your digital photos. Premiere Elements may also be downloaded for free, for video editing, making it easy to turn your HD video clips into edited movies!
