The Leica V-Lux 5 is Leica's most versatile high-end compact camera to date. The extensive range of its zoom lens covers nearly all distances and subject matter – simplifying your travels by avoiding the need for changing lenses and packing additional equipment.

Ergonomic German design resembling an SLR camera, a large 20.1MP 1" CMOS sensor, high-resolution stills shooting and UHD 4K video recording provides the perfect balance between photo and video capabilities.

The view through the new OLED viewfinder brings the scene to life with incredible brilliance, while the large sensor ensures vividly clear, high-resolution images. The perfect all-rounder, the Leica V-Lux 5 delivers in any shooting situation – from travel and sports photography to capturing all your adventures in the great outdoors.

Expand your Creative Scope

Thanks to its sizable, 1-inch sensor, the Leica V-Lux 5 is distinguished by a resolution of 20 megapixels, resulting in exceedingly high-quality detail-rich images. The sensor’s maximum sensitivity of ISO 12,800 further expands the photographer’s capability to shoot in any situation – even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The V-Lux 5 sensor has been custom-tailored and calibrated to match its expansive zoom lens, ensuring an especially precise rendering of details and natural colors.

A Brilliant new OLED Viewfinder

The newly developed OLED electronic viewfinder of the Leica V-Lux 5 enables precise image composition with the greatest of ease. OLED technology offers increased contrast and color depth in the viewfinder image, while saving battery power. Frame your scene quickly and easily, even in bright sunlight, with an EVF resolution of 2.36 megapixels and an enhanced 0.74x magnification. Explore your world from any angle you wish with the full tilt-and-swivel touchscreen on the rear of the V-Lux 5, accompanying its standout EVF.

Super-Fast Autofocus

Equipped with one of the fastest autofocus systems in its class, the Leica V-Lux 5 will capture any subject in motion, whether a blazing supercar at top speeds or an unpredictable toddler weaving around the yard. Thanks to state-of-the art DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, the camera focuses within 0.1 seconds. With a continuous burst rate of up to 12 frames per second, the Leica V-Lux 5 will capture even the most fleeting moments – making it an excellent choice for sports and action photography. In 4K burst mode, the Leica V-Lux 5 achieves 30 frames per second with a resolution of 8 megapixels. Innovative features such as post focus and focus stacking modes inspire new creative opportunities.

Post Focus and Focus Stacking

Working in conjunction with the contrast-detection focusing system, Post Focus records imagery as a 4K MP4 file at 30 fps and shifts the specific point of focus throughout the sequence in order to offer a range of focusing ranges to choose from.
During playback, via the camera's touchscreen, you can then tap the specific region of the image you wish to be in focus and an 8MP JPEG file will be created. Multiple individual files with different points of focus can be created from the original burst.

This technology also allows for producing focus stacked images in-camera to realize a greater depth of field, especially when photographing close-up subjects. In this mode, images are recorded and saved with varying points of focus and then blended together to gain an extended depth of field.

Life in Motion - 4K Video

In addition to its incredible still-picture prowess, you can also record 4K videos at a frame rate of up to 30 fps. Capture any memory with beautiful cinematic quality to preserve for all time. With a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels – four times that of full-HD – moments can be transformed into lifelike videos. The camera also offers a full-HD mode with a frame rate of up to 60 frames per second for flexible and adaptable filming.

Always Connected with the New Leica FOTOS App

Stay connected, wherever you are: In addition to Wi-Fi, the Leica V-Lux 5 can be linked to your smartphone via the energy-efficient Bluetooth option. The Leica FOTOS app lets you share images and videos within a matter of seconds, adjust camera parameters on your smartphone, or turn your phone into a remote viewfinder and shutter release. The Leica FOTOS App can actively export GPS positioning data from the smartphone to the camera. Also, the V-Lux 5 can be charged via a power bank, just like your smartphone – streamlining your travel.

Form Meets Function - Designed in Germany

Distinguished by its striking design and excellent craftsmanship, the Leica V-Lux 5 has its own aesthetic signature. All functions can be accessed and operated intuitively, while switching between automatic and manual control is seemless and easy. In line with Leica’s notoriety for high quality standards, the V-Lux 5 comes with a 2-year warranty to instill the utmost confidence in its owners.
