Leica V-Lux 3 D-SLR camera unveiled

Premium SLR coming early 2012

While Leica are probably best known today for their compact camera's they also dabble in digital SLR's and just so happen to have a new one up their sleeves

Leica have unveiled the Leica V-Lux 3, their most advanced and most powerful DSLR yet offering a whole plethora of features while maintaining the same premium build we've come to expect from the German company.

Offering up a 24x super-telephoto lens the V-Lux 3 is capable of shooting in incredibly difficult conditions while still being able to retain all the detail using their brand-new 12.1 CMOS sensor built from the ground up.

If you want to shoot video then the V-Lux 3 will record in 1920x1080 full HD at 60fps and if you want to use the continuous shooting mode then it'll be able to shoot 12fps at full resolution or 60fps at 3MP.

All of this is then viewable on a 3" display which then displays all of the camera's other functions such as face-detection, auto-focus tracking and a changeable ISO up to 3200.

Coming out early next year the Leica V-Lux 3 will be available to buy with a SRP of £690 placing it firmly into the realm of ultra-premium camera's.
