Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1

 

With Leica on board Panasonic should be able to create some of the best digital cameras around, but does the Lumix LX1 live up to its heritage.

Panasonic Lumix LX1 review

 

The LX1's unique image sensor's native aspect ratio is 16:9, it has a 4x zoom and an optical image stabilizer, and has excellent build quality

How much? Never mind what the LX-1 costs, just see what it does – yes, it’s pricey, but boy is it worth it

Panasonic DMC LX1

 

Panasonic DMC LX1 Review. One of the more advanced compact digital camera. It has manual exposure controls and also a wide angle lens.

Indoor photos ; Compact model consider features and controls ; Easy to use ; Optical image stabilizer

Small capacity memory card supplied

The Panasonic DMC LX1 is one of the few digital cameras to offer a truly wide angle lens. Picture quality is good while the range of features should suit anyone who sees photography as a hobby. The compact shape of the camera is another bonus....

Panasonic Lumix LX1

 

Announced on the 20th of July, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 is the first 16:9 wide-aspect ratio (effectively "wide-screen") digital camera with a 16:9 wide aspect ratio 8.4 megapixel CCD sensor. The camera has a Leica 4x optical zoom lens starting at...

Very good image quality ; Very compact and stylish with a solid metal body (will fit in trouser pockets) ; Built in "Mege Optical Image Stabilisation" allows blur free low-light photos ; 2.5" screen is good with a high resolution (207,000 pixels) ;...

The Panasonic Lumix LX1 is in the unique position of being the only digital camera to offer a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio with wide angle at 8 megapixels (other Panasonic digital cameras feature a 16:9 aspect ratio but not at the full resolution)....

Review of the Panasonic Lumix LX1 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

The 16:9 format, while a nice idea from a compositional perspective, is more attuned to TV display than 'proper' photos.

A great advanced camera that packs a lot of features into a reasonably small package.

Different aspect ratios, great pictures, good battery life, all the features you could want

Button layout difficult

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 reviewed

 

We were pretty stoked when we heard about the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 a couple weeks ago because of its relatively thin size and fully 16:9 wide-angle CCD, and it looks like HardwareZone's among the first we've seen with a review. Besides that 8.4...
