Great image quality, good detail at lower ISOs, all-metal stylish design, AF system, lens

Noise at sensitivity is noticeable, price, no optical viewfinder, underpowered flash, blotchy shadows, detail smoothed away at high ISOs, no RAW capture

Review: Leica V-Lux 20


Sure, you like to travel and take photos, but with so many destinations how do you keep track of where you've been and what you've...

Ships with copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 8. Sports a snazzy all-black design. Lux brown calfskin case available as an accessory

Took up to a minute to initially find GPS signal. Records 720p HD video in Motion JPEG format that produces larger file sizes. Slightly bigger body than Panasonic ZS7
