Leica V-LUX 2 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Leica V-LUX 2? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Leica makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the V-LUX 2 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
In any case, the V-LUX 2 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This fixed lens compact camera was revealed to the public on September 21st, 2010, which means that, as of today, the camera is 4901 days old (young?). The camera has meanwhile been discontinued and was succeeded by the Leica V-LUX 3 as a replacement in the same line of cameras.
