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 colours.
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 dioptre 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.
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.

Comments about Leica V-LUX 4 Digital Camera:
I've been a Nikon SLR user all my life from Film to Digital. For Video, it was always Sony. However, deficiencies I have found in the past from Sony's poor quality lens and Nikon's lack of capable smaller video product, I decided to try the Leica V-Lux 4. I was impress with the lens ability to zoom, from wide to telephoto with minimal noticeable chroma aberration. Much better than any Sony consumer products. The equivalent f2.8 constant and stronger 600mm tele, depth of field is shallow enough to completely blur the background even on this smaller image sensor with the subject 15 feet away. This shallow depth of field was only achievable with an SLR. Another plus is I can shoot video with all manual settings that is fully changeable during shooting like F-stop, shutter speed, manual focus (cumbersome). Still picture is excellent. HD Video is not as good but acceptable. Panasonic's electronics seems to lag behind here. At AVCHD recording 1080i, on high detailed moving or panning, I can see MPEG artifacts much more so compared to Sony's handycam of equivalent price. Although it says 1080i recording the playback quality mimics that of 720p setting.
Really need a manual focus ring that is quiet. The rear thumb wheel produces sounds and unwanted shake during adjustments.
Needs to improve video electronics to go with the superb lens. The stills are excellent but when switch to Video, much of the details are lost.
Excellent still and video reproduction for the price. Excellent quality, ease of use and is very fast shutter, focus and ready time.
