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 V-LUX 20

Pocket Lint
17 September 2010
  • Conclusion: We cannot help but feel the Leica V-Lux 20 is very overpriced no matter how you look at it. It’s certainly less brash in terms of styling and while the all-metal build and features are good, they are no better than the Lumix and certainly so in terms of the HD movie shooting, though arguably the AVCHD Lite format of the Lumix is less broadly compatible than the Leica’s QuickTime format.
  • 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

Leica V-Lux 20 im Test: teurer Doppelgänger von der Panasonic TZ10

CNET
16 August 2010
  • Summary: Leica. Der Name steht für lange Tradition, für extrem hochwertige Kameras und Optiken und für horrende Preise. Die V-Lux 20 ist mit 550 Euro auf den ersten Blick ein echtes Schnäppchen. Beim genaueren Hinsehen entpuppt sich die Digicam allerdings als leicht überarbeiteter Klon der nur halb so teuren Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10.
  • Pros: gute Bildqualität, präzise Farbwiedergabe, manuelle Belichtungs- und Blendeneinstellung, Multiformat-Sensor, Photoshop Elements 8 im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: teuer im Vergleich zur TZ10, kein AVCHD-Videocodec
