Advanced Point-and-Shoot: Leica V-LUX (Typ 114) Digital Camera


If you want an advanced point-and-shoot with the look and feel of a DSLR, the Leica V-LUX Digital Camera might be just what you’re seeking. It has a 20MP 1" MOS sensor, 16x zoom lens, and records UHD 4K video. The camera has a built-in 25-400mm f/2.8-4.0 lens (35mm equivalent) with Optical Image Stabilization to help minimize the appearance of camera shake.

For easy menu navigation and image review, the camera has a 3" rotatable LCD screen, and an EVF for composing your shots. The built-in Wi-Fi and NFC allow for instant image sharing, and remote-control functionality is possible when paired with the Image Shuttle App.

The V-LUX impressively shoots up to 50 fps when using the electronic shutter, and up to 12 fps with the mechanical shutter. Shooting stills and videos in difficult lighting situations is possible, thanks to the ISO sensitivity range of 120-12500 and a relatively fast aperture range, adding to the versatility and appeal of this advanced digital camera.
