V-LUUX 3 is an output of joined venture of both Leica and Panasonic. It was earlier known as Panasonic Lumix FZ150 but now it rehashed by Leica as V-LUX 3. It’s a hybrid style digital Leica camera with Superzoom feature.
Leica V-LUX 3 has the same features as showed in hands-on of Panasonic DMC-FZ150 back in August. Leica highlighted its 24x Superzoom feature as its appealing quality and in order to remind you the sporting features the V-LUX 3 is designed with:
- 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor

Leica V-LUX 3 also comes with preloaded software including Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements. It will be made available from January 2012 from all Leica online stores.
