Because the M9 Doesn't Fit In Your Pocket

Gear Patrol
20 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Based off the cheaper and better equipped Panasonic ZS7 ($345) , the V-Lux 20 should fulfill its duty as a Leica compact point & shoot. That is, once the lights and music have faded, and the sobering realization that carrying a $7,000 M9 is neither practical or cavalier. The matte-black superzoom features a 12.1 megapixel 25-300mm superzoom Leica DC-Vario-Elmar 4.1-49.2 f/3.3-4.9 ASPH lens, 11-point autofocus, SD/SDHC/SDXC card storage, built-in GPS tagging, 720p/60fps...

Leica V-Lux 20 Review

Digital Photography School
19 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Here’s another LeicaPana compact with a Leica lens married to a Panasonic-designed body and electronics. And if you think the V-LUX 20 looks like the latter’s Lumix DMC-ZS7 (or DMC-TZ10 in Australia) you’re precisely on the money. There are some differences: among them a slightly different handgrip and some other cosmetic detail plus movie capture in Motion JPEG instead of AVCHD at the top res.

Leica's Latest GPS Cam Is a Pretty Shooter at a Premium Price

Wired
21 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Sure, you like to travel and take photos, but with so many destinations how do you keep track of where you’ve been and what you’ve shot? The answer: Get a GPS-enabled camera that will geotag your photos for you. The Leica V-Lux 20 is just such a device, and it looks nearly identical to the Panasonic ZS7, which has similar sat-tracking capabilities.
  • Pros: Ships with copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 8. Sports a snazzy all-black design. Lux brown calfskin case available as an accessory.
  • Cons: Took up to a minute to initially find GPS signal. Records 720p HD video in Motion JPEG format that produces larger file sizes. Slightly bigger body than Panasonic ZS7.

Leica V-LUX 20 review

Pocket Lint
17 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Leica’s link with Panasonic for its digital cameras is a good one simply because if you’re going to start with someone else’s kit as a start point Panasonic’s cameras and their reputation for them is very good. After all, one of our favourite digital compacts ever was the Lumix LX3. But the Panasonic model upon which the Leica V-Lux 20 is based is the Lumix DMC TZ10 ( reviewed here ) and it is almost identical but for some key elements.
  • Pros: Great image quality, good detail at lower ISOs, all-metal stylish design, AF system, lens
  • Cons: Noise at sensitivity is noticeable, price, no optical viewfinder, underpowered flash, blotchy shadows, detail smoothed away at high ISOs, no RAW capture

Обзор фотокамеры Leica V-Lux 20: самая крутая «мыльница»

Hi-Tech@mail.ru
7 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Тест Leica X1 привлек довольно широкое внимание — и действительно, аппарат на редкость нестандартный и выбивающийся из стройных и стандартизированных рядов современных камер. И при этом очень логичный в замкнутом мирке легендарной немецкой компании. Но есть у нее и модели, рассчитанные на максимально востребованный рыночный сегмент — компактных цифровых «мыльниц» с мощным оптическим зумом. В частности, последняя новинка, Leica V-Lux 20.
