  • The Leica V-Lux 4 is so versatile that it simply takes every situation in its stride. Its fast (f/2.8) lens enables sharp pictures even in poor light and throughout the entire zoom range of 25 to 600 mm (equivalent in 35 mm format). Thanks to its new electronic viewfinder, photographers now also always have a perfect view of their subjects, even in bright surroundings. The rotatable three-inch LCD monitor screen allows effortless composition of shots from even the most unusual angles. At the same time, it also features fast continuous-shooting capability and masters full-HD video recording at up to 60 frames per second. All in all, a camera that transforms every trip into a journey of discovery.

    Enormous Range of Focal Lengths

    The newly designed high-performance 24× super-tele-zoom lens of the Leica V-Lux 4 has an enormous range of focal lengths ranging from 25 to 600 mm (35 mm equivalent). With its constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range, the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 4.5–108 mm f/2.8 ASPH. guarantees pin- sharp images even at high ISO settings and considerable distances. In addition to this, its new 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor ensures outstanding still-picture and video quality with a high dynamic range and natural, perfectly saturated colors.

    New High-Resolution Viewfinder

    Thanks to a new electronic viewfinder, photographers can now perfectly assess image framing and exposure settings, even in brightly lit situations. The viewfinder has an impressively high resolution of 1.3 megapixels, shows 100% of the image frame and displays exactly the same exposure setting information as the camera’s monitor screen. Thanks to its magnification function, users can zoom in on details of their subjects, while a diopter compensation setting makes it ideal for use by spectacle wearers.

    Video in Full-HD Quality

    The V-Lux 4 captures full-HD video in AVCHD format with 1920 × 1080 pixels and 60 full frames per second. Thanks to the new sensor and its ability to capture faster frame rates, even fast-moving subjects are captured and reproduced in outstanding detail. Videos can now also be saved in the Internet-friendly MP4 format and can be uploaded directly to social media or mobile devices, for example, without the need for conversion. An integrated stereo microphone with a built-in wind-noise filter ensures outstanding audio quality.

    Sensationally fast

    Speed is the utmost priority in the V-Lux 4: the autofocus system reacts in less than a tenth of a second and reliably captures fast-moving subjects. Its continuous-frame rate is also impressive: it delivers consecutive burst shooting at a rate of up to 12 frames per second at full resolution. At a reduced resolution of 2.5 megapixels, it records at a fantastic 60 frames per second. Users can capture every action and important moment, even when shooting sports or wildlife.
