The camera’s newly developed OLED electronic viewfinder and flip touchscreen panel provide the user with a range of shooting options. The touchscreen also features smart functions such as face recognition and burst shooting.

Other notable features include fast autofocus and a high continuous-shooting rate, as well as exposure modes such as Focus Stacking and Post-focusing – particularly useful to amateur photographers.

In addition to its still shooting capabilities, the V-Lux 5 is capable of recording in 4K at 60fps.

When it comes to connectivity, the V-Lux 5 is the first model in its range that can be used with the Leica FOTOS App. To use the app, the user simply connects the camera to their iOS or Android smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing for full operation remotely.
