LEICA C-LUX 2
If you value style but not weight when you're out looking for great images, consider the ultra-compact Leica C-LUX 2. Sporting a classic black metal body and measuring just 3.5 x 2 x .9 inches, it fits into even the smallest pocket. (The Leica C-LUX 2 is also available in silver.) The elegant exterior design is unmistakably Leica and is matched by an immaculate standard of optics and digital technology inside. The camera’s weight is only 132gm (4.6Oz)!
The high-speed wide-angle 28-100mm zoom lens takes stunning, space-grabbing shots. The optical image stabilizer and the intelligent exposure control prevent camera shake and ensure optimum definition. The 7.2-megapixel CCD sensor enables superlative prints up to poster size of 15”x20”.
The extra large 2.5-inch display, the image stabilization, and short shutter delay of the Leica C-LUX 2 all guarantee carefree photography with high-quality results. Fast, discreet snapshots captured on the fly, or picture-perfect compositions at twilight or in other tricky conditions--everything is possible with the Leica C-LUX 2. The Vario-Elmarit zoom lens retracts entirely into the camera body at the flick of the 'off' switch. Whether you're a partygoer, beachcomber, city stroller, or nature lover, the Leica C-LUX 2 is always a dependable companion--any time, any place, you'll never miss another photo op.
It is lightweight and fits easily in a pocket or purse. The menus are intuitive, and the quality of the pictures taken is superb!
Exposure metering, compensation and AE bracketing are identical in both cameras, as are the color effects, which in the C-Lux 2 are found in the Colour Mode setting on page three of the shooting menu. Seven settings are provided: Standard, Natural, Vivid, Cool, Warm, B&W and Sepia. Both cameras offer users a choice of three aspect ratios for stills and two for video clips and have the same still and video resolutions and frame rates. The scene mode settings are also identical.
