The good people of Leica allowed me to borrow the V-Lux 30 for the week. I lot of Leica purists will turn their noses up at this camera due to the nature of it being a compact. However in its defence, this camera is pretty much aimed at that particular compact digital market. The V-lux has a large touch screen, which allows allowing you to pinpoint what you’re focusing on. So, I guess you can say goodbye to those annoying out of focus holiday shots. Oh,did I mention that it has a GPS setting too. Being a Leica, the lens has just that extra edge over its fellow rivals, allowing light to trickle into the shadows that other lenses just don’t reach. There’s also a bespoke case that you can order for this camera too, making this compact quite a dapper accessory. The other part of it being a Leica, will be the price tag that comes with it. Apart from that I left the instruction manual at home, set the camera to P and then figured out how to use it from there. Easy-peasy.
