Leica V-Lux 20 gets official

Last week the Leica V-Lux 20 digital camera was leaked with a photo of the new camera turning up online. We were able to dig up a few specifications for the camera despite the fact that only the one image was leaked at the time.

Now that the camera is officially official, we have all the specs you can want. The V-Lux 20 has a focal length of 25-300mm and a 12.1MP sensor. The camera is a point and shoot, so a wide range of automatic settings are included. It can record movies in 720p HD resolution and GPS tagging for video and photos is available.

The camera will ship with Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 for image editing. The camera has a full range of automatic settings, but those wanting to play with manual settings can also adjust aperture and shutter speed to their liking. Continuous shots can be made at up to 6fps for 15 photos on internal memory or 100 photos using a SD card. The camera support SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. The rear LCD is a 3-inch TFT unit.
