Leica Logo

LEICA Camera AG in Solms, Germany describes its new C-LUX 3 as an elegant and high-performance digital camera from the Leica C-LUX line, updating the Leica C-LUX 2.

The company says the new 10-megapixel C-LUX 3 offers various technical improvements. The LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 4.4-22 mm f/2.8-5.9 ASPH zoom lens provides a wide focal length range from 25 to 125 mm (35 mm format), ideal for landscapes, architecture photography, interior views or group photos

The LEICA C-LUX 3 also integrates new automatic functions. When activated, the user simply has to press the shutter release button to obtain a perfectly exposed and focused picture, according to the company. In automatic mode, the camera combines the many individual functions to suit the subject and the photographic conditions, controlling the O.I.S. image stabilizer, the automatic ISO control, the face recognition, automatic contrast compensation and automatic choice of scene mode.

The LEICA C-LUX 3 will be on sale at authorized Leica dealers from October 2008.
