Leica has introduced its first camera with integrated geo-tagging able to stamp snaps with your location anywhere in the world... except China, apparently.

The camera also supports the new SDXC memory card format.

The compact, 103 x 62 x 33mm V-Lux 20 has a 12.1Mp sensor and a 12x optical zoom. The lens runs from 4.1mm to 49.2mm - 25-300mm in 35mm terms. There's a 3in, 460,800-pixel LCD on the back with a 100 per cent field of view.

For video buffs, it'll shoot 720p material at 60f/s. The V-Lux 20 has an HDMI port.

The Leica has 15MB of on-board memory that's readily expandable with SDHC and SDXC memory cards.

Leica claimed the V-Lux 20's 895mAh battery is good for 300 standard shots.

The V-Lux 20 goes on sale next month for around £495. ®
