|Name||Digital compact camera: Leica V-Lux 30|
|At a glance:||Long 14X zoom and 12.1Megapixel sensor,Good image quality, up to ISO 1,250,Full 1080p/24 HD video|
|Summary:||Does everything the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 does but for almost twice the money.|
Leica makes the lenses and cameras that many photographers dream of, like the M9. The legendary German imaging master also provides Panasonic in Japan with lenses and expertise, as evident from the latter’s Lumix range of cameras.
However, we’re not sure why Leica would take a Panasonic DMC-TZ20, stick its own logo on it and remove the Lumix branding at the front. That’s all the difference between the two.
Actually, that’s not true: the V-Lux 30 costs almost twice more than the Panasonic TZ20 and comes with the old version 1.0 firmware with no upgrade listed by Leica. We’ll pass on this one.
Leica is a lovely brand, but go for the TZ20 instead of the V-Lux 30 and save some money.
