Product Features
  • Ultra-wide focal-length range
    Just like every other Leica lens, the Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 1:2.8-5.2/4.5-108 mm ASPH. on the V-LUX 2 is a true optical masterpiece. The equivalent focal lengths of this 24x super zoom for photo and video range from a super wide-angle 25mm to an extreme telephoto of 600mm in 35mm format. This makes the Leica V-LUX 2 a true all-round genius - and the perfect camera for any situation. Its super zoom lens ensures pin-sharp pictures from finely detailed macro close-ups and breathtaking wide-angle vistas to super telephoto shots - and ideal camera, particularly for travel and nature photography. Thanks to its enormous zoom range, the V-LUX 2 opens up almost infinite photographic opportunities without any need to change a lens, and makes it an interesting alternative to comparable SLR systems with interchangeable lenses. In addition to its enormous range of focal lengths, another compelling feature of the compact V-LUX 2 is its newly developed high-performance, 14.1-megapixel, CMOS image sensor.
  • Continuous shooting at high speed
    The ultra-fast consecutive burst capability of the Leica V-LUX 2 is more than impressive - with 11 frames per second at the full resolution of 14.1-megapixel or 60 frames per second with a resolution of 2.8-megapixel, the Leica V-LUX 2 is one of the world's fastest consecutive shooting cameras. This means that you just won't miss the decisive moment - even when shooting the fastest-moving subjects in the worlds of sport and nature. What's more, the V-LUX 2 can even reveal the details of motion sequences otherwise invisible to the human eye.
  • Fold-out LCD display
    The V-LUX 2 offers viewing perspectives when shooting. The reason is its 3" LCD screen that can be twisted and turned in almost any direction making it easy to compose pictures taken from the most unusual or challenging angles. When shooting stills or video from over their head or down close to the ground - photographers using the V-LUX 2 are in full control. And its high-resolution display with 460,000 pixel resolution guarantees a finely detailed and brilliant viewing image.
  • Videos in Full-HD-quality
    Another highlight of the V-LUX 2 is its ability to shoot videos in 1080i-AVCHD Full HD. This feature is often found only in high-quality digital camcorders and, in contrast to the usual M-JPEG format it uses about 50 % less memory - without any compromise in terms of brilliant image quality. The entire 24x zoom range is available during video recording, and an integrated stereo microphone with an electronic wind-noise filter guarantees a crystal-clear soundtrack. What's more, the V-LUX 2 also features an option for shooting still pictures in video capture mode.
  • Compact design
    Characterized by a compact design and extremely simple handling, the V-LUX 2's integrated handgrip and light weight allow photgraphers to shoot one-handed with ease. The camera controls are clearly laid out, ensuring fast and simple operation. For instance, video recording can be started quickly and easily at the touch of a button on the top deck of the camera.

    Awesome product! Thanks.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    There are Vario-Summicrons and then there's the Digilix 2 Vario-Summicron. The Leica D2 let's you set up really great shots quickly with the easily accessible manual operation. Although not a true range finder, the EVP really works well and holds its own when the light goes down. Its sturdily built and hefty but surprisingly light. It's a classic armed with an impeccable 28-90mm Vario-Summicron on large glass, not the the tiny ones on the D-Lux series. That rare lens alone is reason enough to try and get hold of this gem.

    Awesome Camera

    The Leica Digilux 2 was released jointly by Leica and Panasonic in 2004. The Panasonic version was the Lumix DMC LC1. The cameras were distinguishable in appearance by virtue of the outer case and color. The Leica inherited the classic silver and black Leica rangefinder styling, while the Panasonic came in all black. There are few differences in the contours of the case… but for the most part, they're the same.

    In this arrangement, Leica took responsibility for the optics while Panasonic (via some Sony technology) managed the electronics. But make no mistake about it, the business end of this camera, the lens, is all Leica. In many respects, the lens is the heart of this beast.

    In addition to cosmetic differences, there is a difference in how the two cameras handle the image interpretation when shooting in JPEG mode. Just like you and I might "tweak" our images differently in Photoshop or post processing, camera manufacturers each have their own "recipe" for how the camera's image processing software creates the JPEG output from the camera's RAW file. The folks at Leica claim their software offers a look more suited to the Leica owner's tastes... in other words it looks more like film. :) Panasonic, on the other hand, will probably have a bit more saturation and punch to the colors. However, if you're shooting in RAW, it's a moot point.

    Leica Digilux 2 - A True Jewel from Leica

    Digilux 2, in my opinion, is the very best one can get in a Digital Camera, except for the Leica M8, which is not within the reach of many a photographer. The images from the Digilux 2 are the best that I have been able to create. The photoes appear larger to me than what the M8 & 50mm Leica Lens can deliver.
    The bounce flash is a very superior feature that this camera has. The original sensor that the camera came with did deliver better pictures, than the new replacement sensor does. Sensor failure is a weak point in this camera. The lens on the Digilux 2 is a true optic capable of matching performance comparable to Leica M Lenses. I just wish that Leica had continued to make this camera for ever and ever. 5MP of this camera is more than adequate to give perfect results. A nicely fitted lens Hood, with its own cap is a feature that every lens should. Digilux 2 feels right in the hand and those, who have one that works - PLEASE HANG ON TO IT - regretted selling mine, but have replace it.

    High quality, sharp lens, rich color picture, compact body, bright monitor.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I like the digilux2 due to more high quality pictures in flickr gallery.I bought one from ebay and I enjoy it now.It can take sharp and rich color picture. I think Its picture is more 3D than others.The digilux2 is a excellent camera though its writing speed is too slow.
    I like digilux3 too and I bought one from ebay after I bought digilux2.However its zoom ring stick on the 25,then I returned it to the seller.
