Leica intros V-LUX 30 compact with 16X zoom

Leica on Thursday morning upgraded its smallest camera line through the V-LUX 30. Its body is a more premium adaptation of the 14-megapixel Panasonic Lumix ZS10 that revolves around Leica's own 16X, 4.3-68.8mm f3.3-5.9 lens in a compact body. The V-LUX adaptation goes all black and ships with both Adobe's Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9.

Owners also have the option of either a brown, soft leather pouch for use in an existing bag or a tan leather hard case. Much like the ZS10, the camera has a three-inch touchscreen as its main interface and records video in AVCHD (H.264) at up to 1080i with stereo audio.

The premium camera is due to ship in June and will cost $750 in the US.
