V-Lux 3

Rating: no rating

Heading up the super-zoom compact digital camera range, Leica is pleased to introduce a new addition to the multiple award winning V-Lux range of cameras – the V-Lux 3. An eminently worthy addition to the series, the V-Lux 3 boasts a 25mm ultra wide angle, powerful 24x optical LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with Leica’s Black Box Nano Surface Coating technology to minimize light reflection that causes ghosts and flares. Picture perfect – the V-Lux 3 can also record high-resolution full-HD 1920 x 1080 50p videos for those users looking for high picture quality of both photo and video.



Packing a powerful zoom lens, high performance imaging devices, a host of functions and manual control in a compact body, the V-Lux 3 is highly versatile – perfect for advanced amateur photographers with its high quality photo and video.



Based on the Panasonic Lumix FZ150.
