Get the detail in 4K video

The VX870 is made to film in 4K. With four times the resolution than Full HD, video is captured in crisp detail. When footage is down-converted to Full HD, the data will have even better definition and clarity than those filmed in Full-HD.


Creative editing

Recording in 4K resolution gives you greater flexibility when it comes to editing your video. Draw focus to specific actions and shape your stories with creative use of scale, pan and crops.

Capture the perfect moment

The 4K Photo function lets you capture those 'perfect' moments by extracting individual frames as 8 MP images.

Leica lens: made for 4K

A specially developed Leica Dicomar lens, with 20x optical zoom (in 4K), will help you find your perfect shot. For those who shoot from the hip, the VX870 has a superior focus speed.

Leica lens: no distortion

The Leica Dicomar lens is designed to alleviate distortion and minimise ghosting and flare. It provides excellent resolution even when footage is enlarged, so your shots are always crisp and clear.

HDR video: perfect exposure

When filming in high contrast environments, such as indoors or in bright sunshine, footage can be underexposed in some areas and over in others. Backgrounds look bleached and subjects in the foreground appear in shadow. The VX870 captures footage in HDR, blending different exposures together to create completely balanced video.

Image Stabilisation - Smoother more stable shots

A number of features are built into the VX870 to counteract unwanted movement. Level Shot Function detects tilt and automatically corrects footage. But sometimes you might want a 'handheld' effect so there are three settings: strong, normal and off. The 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ feature also stabilises your footage, automatically compensating blur from camera zooms and walking.

Wireless Camera - Stream video from a separate device

Place a point of view right in the heart of the action and stream footage back to the VX870 from your tablet or smartphone as a picture in picture. This flexible option allows you to push your creativity by combining different angles together to create unique footage.
