question

What is the image processor on Leica C-Lux?
Asked by: Julian
Leica does not say anywhere in the information we have what processor it is. However, since this is a twin of the Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200 and has the Venus Engine Image Processor, we will say that it is most likely that one.

Battery life?
Asked by: Juan Carlos
I bought the C-Lux for a recent trip to Southeast Asia. I was on the go alot and did not want to deal with a bulky bag and lenses. I purchased an extra battery and charger but most of the time I was able to go a couple of days between charges. I usually take between 75 - 100 shots a day.

question

How is it different from Panasonic ZS-200 ? (besides some of the button shapes).
Asked by: Julian
It does have an international warranty, if that makes a difference to you. I bought mine for a trip to southeast Asia and the C-Lux provided coverage in case I had problems with the camera while out of the USA
