Adeal has announced January availability of the Leica V-Lux 3, a new premium grade compact digital camera featuring a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 4.5 – 108 mm f2.8 – 5.2 ASPH. 24x super-telephoto zoom lens.
This is equivalent to a 25–600mm focal length in 35mm format.
For photographers who like to shoot landscapes, architecture, sport, travel, portraits or wildlife, this wonderfully flexible lens makes the new V-Lux 3 the ideal upmarket all-rounder. It’s married to a newly-developed 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor.
Together with an extensive range of video options and video quality comparable with that delivered by premium-range camcorders, the V-Lux 3 is ‘a truly universal solution for creative photographers looking for an all-in-one camera.’
In fact, Leica says that with its massive focal range and Leica optics, the V-Lux 3 is an all-in-one alternative to entry-level DSLR cameras with interchangeable lenses.
The V-Lux 3 also captures full-HD video in AVCHD format with 1920 × 1080 pixels and 60 full frames per second. This is ideal for conversion to alternative resolutions and refresh rates. The entire 24x zoom range is available during video recording, and an integrated stereo microphone with an electronic wind-noise flter guarantees a crystal-clear soundtrack.
Another highlight of the V-Lux 3 is its high-speed burst-shooting capability: bursts of 12 frames per second at full resolution, or 60 frames per second at a resolution of 3.5 megapixels make it one of the fastest burst-shooting cameras in its class.
The Leica V-Lux 3 will have an RRP of $1049.00.
