It has 15-fold optical zoom with focal lengths from 24 to 360 mm (35 mm equivalent) and 4K video recording capability.
This camea is claimed to deliver brilliant pictures in RAW or JPEG format in a quality that remains equally impressive in large-format prints and with an impressive maximum ISO sensitivity of 25600, the C-Lux guarantees pictures with natural colours and exceptional quality. With its versatile zoom lens, fast autofocus and face detection, the camera also claims to offer enormous flexibility in almost all areas of photography, and especially in spontaneous situations.
The camera’s viewfinder has high resolution of 2.33 megapixels and as a result the clarity and contrast of the viewing image is outstanding at all times. As the viewfinder covers 100% of the image field, framing of subjects is extremely precise and users have complete control of composition.
