Megapixels:
A megapixel is one million pixels. It is commonly used to describe the resolution of digital cameras. For example, a 7.2 megapixel camera is capable of capturing roughly 7,200,000 pixels. The higher the megapixel number, the more detail the camera can capture. Therefore, the megapixel count is a significant specification to look for when buying a digital camera.

Overview

 

Overview

The new Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with an enormous focal length of 24 mm super wide angle to 480 mm super tele zoom for photo and video, the V-LUX 40 is prepared for nearly all photographic situations. High precision aspherical elements and an optical image stablizer are incorporated to guarantee outstanding imaging performance.

Newly developed CMOS Image Sensor with an effective resolution of 14.1 MP

The new 1 / 2.33 CMOS image sensor in the Leica V-LUX 40 captures 15.3 megapixels (14.1 MP effective) to ensure excellent picture quality. It enables a higher dynamic range as well as particularly noise-free images at sensitivities up to ISO 3200. In comparison with its predecessor, the Leica V-LUX 40 now offers significantly improved image quality, even in low light conditions. In addition to this, its autofocus speed of 0.1 seconds allows even faster focusing on moving subjects.

High Versatility

When it comes to the range of functions, the features of the Leica V-LUX 40 leave nothing to be desired: from a continuous shooting rate of 10 fps at full resolution, and even 60 fps in high-speed mode, to creative modes with effects like miniature world, panorama, and retro. The Leica V-lux 40 offers additional functions for in-camera processing, and the camera is supplied complete with a software package comprising Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Adobe Premiere Elements 10 for post-processing still pictures and video. For even more flexibility, the camera battery can now be recharged from a PC or laptop via the USB connector, or with an AC power adapter.

This high level of handling convenience is further highlighted by its impressive 3 LCD touch-screen display.

Its integrated GPS module also makes the V-LUX 40 the ideal camera for travelling. It not only registers the location and time in the Exif data of each image file, but also shows any major sights that are located in the surrounding area. The DVD included in the package contains maps of important cities and regions. These can be transfered to an SD card an uploaded to the camera as an aid to orientation in unfamiliar surroundings. Thumbnails of images can also be added to the maps.

Videos in full HD-quality

Full-HD videos capturedby the V-LUX 40 impress with their perfect rendition of the finest details, even with fast-moving subjects. This is made possible by recording in AVCHD format at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 50 full frames per second. Another new feature is that videos can now be saved in Internet-friendly MP4 format and be uploaded directly to social media or mobile devices, for example, without any need for conversion. Outstanding audio quality is ensured by an integrated stereo microphone with a built-in wind-noise filter.

Detailed Specifications
Image Sensor: CMOS
Image Sensor:
Describes the makeup, build, and technology of the sensor that is in the camera. An Image Sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. It is a set of charge-coupled devices (CCD) or CMOS sensors such as active-pixel sensors.

ISO Speed: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200
ISO Speed:
The ISO speed setting dictates sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO speed, the more sensitive the film or digital sensor is to light. Higher ISOs have the effect of noise in an image. The actual ISO at which the noise occurs varies from camera to camera. Low ISOs are generally used for brighter lighting conditions and high ISOs are often used for low light or action shots.
