A unique compact digital camera that is offering photo enthusiasts the ideal way for capturing professional-quality photos, get ready for Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5!
Lens and Processor of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
The 24mm wide angle lens offers extraordinarily large viewing space and now the optical zoom is extended to 3.8x (90mm) making the LX5 even more versatile. It has an image processing engine that combines technologies resulting in professional-quality photos, especially in low-light situations. Like its predecessor, the Lumix LX5 features the highly-acclaimed 10.1-megapixel CCD, but it has an expanded dynamic range by increasing the sensitivity and the saturation.

• The newly developed Venus Engine FHD image processor enables higher-speed, higher-performance while compiling the Intelligent Resolution technology.
• In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-LX5 can record high-definition motion picture in AVCHD Lite. It features almost doubling the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format.
• The 3.0-inch large 460,000-dot high resolution Intelligent LCD also redesigned by adopting High CRI (Color Rendering Index) backlight LED to greatly increase the color reproduction, making it more visible both in shooting and playing back images in any conditions from at dark night to under bright sunlight.
• Battery life is extended to shoot 400 photos (CIPA) per a single charge.

--Overall, I highly recommend the LX5 if you are in the market for a serious photographer's P&S camera. No, it won't replace a DSLR if you need the ultimate image quality and speed, but within the context of a P&S, it fits the bill nearly perfectly for me.
--Should be a better panorama mode. I think sony's "Sweeping panorama" feature is fantastic. Panasonic should adopt something similar if they can. The current mode works fine, but could be improved.
--So it does depend on what you're looking for in a camera that suits your needs, in my case, this camera does excellent and very pleased with it.
...Build quality wise, this is incredibly solid. It has a good amount of weight behind it so you don't have to worry TOO much about small falls/tumbles.
...I was deciding between this camera and the Cannon s95. I was leaning towards the Cannon, but virtually every review I read gave the Panasonic a slight edge over the Cannon.

OVERALL RATING: 4.4 out of 5 stars.
