Summary: The Leica V-LUX 20 12.1 MP is small and discrete, but packs powerful optics and a wide variety of features in its small body. The zoom lens is extremely sharp and its sensor produces images with all zones. This model has been compared with Panasonic DMCs but I own both and prefer the Leica. That little red dot matters. There was one tiny cosmetic blemish on the body but it is the image that matters.
Summary: I reviewed the features and ratings on the Canon G12, Nikon coolpix p7000 and the Leica V-Lux20 12.1. The Leica had the best mix of features I was looking for. Additionally the ratings and reputation of true Leica cameras made the decision easy. The photos exceed my expectation (a little sad I don't use my SLR as much). Absolutely worth every penny!!!
"superb photo at daylight but at night have to go manual"
10 December 2010
Pros: what ever it takes you won't say that it could be much better than that .its auto is enough to take great picture at day .it has 60 second shutter speed which is great for night street or building picture(of-course need tripod ). manual ,panorama opt
Cons: at night indoor auto mode just make dark picture .so you have to learn the manual aperture or shutter speed and exposure to take good photo .you need a tripod to take good photo at night indoor cz those settings require steady place .no manual focus
Summary: Fine Leica quality build and minimalist style. This is Leica luxury with the real "red dot" on the front. A new classic. Excellent 25-300 zoom. This is a fantastic feature in such a small camera. Built in GPS receiver to GeoTag the photos you take. This works great when you load your photos into iPhoto and use the "Places" feature. Very nice shooting of HD video. Quality is quite nice ! Very good photos, sharp, clear, vibrant.
Pros: Built-in GPS Receiver, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time, Very High Quality Build, Very High Quality Photos
Summary: For my first outing with my new Leica V-Lux 20 I went to the fabulous Aquarium of the Pacific in Long beach. WOW! Every photo positively glows. Depth of field, close ups and best of all videos look better than real life! I am impressed with its ease of handling. Unlike any other camera I have used, the automatic settings were perfect. The burst mode made capturing fast moving fish easy. I liked the one button switch from photo to video the best.
Pros: Easy to use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
