Leica has announced a new entry to its compact camera line. The C-Lux is a compact super-zoom camera with a 1″ sensor at the heart of the system, although it is essentially a rebadged Panasonic ZS200.
The C-Lux also captures video in 4K30fps, with a high 100Mbps bitrate for files. Images are saved in both JPG and RAW, with a max ISO value of 25600. Focusing is expected to be sharp as a tack thanks to the 49 metering points. Plus it can shoot continuously with a max shooting speed of 10fps.
The 20MP 1″ BSI CMOS sensor is paired with 24-360mm F3.3-6.4 zoom lens, making it a great travel camera to walk around with.
The long zoom is crystal clear in both the wide-angle and telephoto position, plus the high-resolution viewfinder rated at 2.33 megapixels is a boon to any photographer. The menu can be accessed using the large 3-inch touchscreen that unfortunately is not tiltable.
Leica will be starting the sale of the C-Lux from mid-July, with a sticker price of US$1,050 (RM4,197) with a range of accessories designed for the camera.
