Icon – Leica V-Lux 30
Another camera? Hardly an icon
Silence yourself and stop this heresy. No Leica is ever "just another camera" and the V-Lux 30 is no exception. Featuring Leica’s classically elegant minimalist styling and available with a timeless tan leather case, this matt black point-and-shoot will turn more heads than your paltry "deep" shots of a plastic bag floating in the wind.
Looks aren’t everything, you know
The V-Lux 30 has as much brain as beauty. For starters, it features a 14.1MP sensor, 16x optical zoom and a generously sized touchscreen for idiot-proof operation. Full HD video recording, a stereo 3D picture mode, GPS tagging and an electronic wind-noise filter are also packed into the svelte 33mm body.
Okay, you’ve convinced me. How soon can they take my money?
Glad you’ve seen the light. Expect to fork out £550 for the V-Lux 30 and an extra £80 for the leather case. They’re both out in June, so there’s still a bit of time to scrounge around the back of the sofa for those all important pennies.
