Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

 

The successor to the Panasonic LX3 is here at last

The much anticipated Panasonic Lumix LX5 is expensive, but it is without a doubt one of the best compact cameras on the market, offering superb build quality, classic design and easy handling, with fast performance and outstanding photographic...

Panasonic Lumix LX5 review

 

A powerful palm-sized compact with a fast Leica lens and HD movie recording, but do the pictures live up to the promise?

An impressive camera that's easy to love, but hard to whole-heartedly recommend

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

 

Of the quintet of new Panasonic digital camera releases over summer 2010, the serious yet approachable-looking Lumix DMC-LX5, in succeeding the LX3 , has been the one we've been keenest to get our mitts on to take a closer look. Why? Because it's...

Sharp images, decent lens, ease of use given the level of sophistication on offer, manageable dimensions, rock solid build, higher than average light sensitivity settings

Launch price overly expensive so shop around, Live View finder costs extra

There is clearly more to this camera than immediately meets the eye, as the LX5 comes across as a veritable pocket rocket and sports the physically smaller dimensions we imagined Micro Four Thirds hybrid models would deliver, when we first saw those...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 review

 

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX3 was widely regarded as one of the best compact cameras at any price. We were so impressed with it that we gave it our highly coveted Ultimate award. The company recently launched its replacement, the Lumix DMC-LX5, and we've...

Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-LX5 replaces the LX3 as the ultimate enthusiast compact, but at around £400 it’s not cheap. If the LX5’s excellent high ISO performance, great video mode and versatile 24-90mm lens sound attractive, it’s the best compact in town,...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX5 review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX5 digital camera is the new top dog in Panasonic's compact digital camera line-up, taking over from the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX3. It has a host of new specifications and features that make it a superior camera to its predecessor.

The new Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX5 makes several improvements to the old flagship LUMIX DMC-LX3. It's an expensive product but its specifications look great.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 review

 

When Panasonic announced the Lumix DMC-LX5, it mentioned the Canon PowerShot G11 numerous times as the camera's direct competitor. Having now tested the LX5, the reason why is clear.Like the G11, the LX5 has a full range of manual-exposure controls, a...

Panasonic Lumix LX5 Digital Camera Review

 

Panasonic Lumix LX5 Compact Digital Camera with 10 megapixel sensor, and bright f2.0 lens reviewed.

Excellent image quality; Excellent macro mode; Lots of options / controls; Wide angle 24mm lens; Aspect ratio options / sensor; Quick performance, especially shot to shot, focus, and shutter response

Quite bulky, protruding lens, can be difficult to find cases

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 review

 

Packed with features the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 proves a quality camera choice.

Ultimately, it’s the sharpness and clarity delivered by the bright Leica-branded lens that left a lasting impression on us. Since there's clearly more to the LX5 than meets the eye, and in a conveniently pocketable form, that lofty asking price starts...

This camera is one of the very best I have ever reviewed. Picture quality is excellent and I love the small size of the camera. It is packed with advanced features and I found it was able to handle a variety of different shooting conditions without a...

If you are looking for the very best picture quality a compact digital camera can deliver then you will be hard pressed to find better than the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5. It fully merits an outstanding rating. Over to you!

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX5

 

We review the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 - the hotly anticipated successor to the LX3, this prestige compact will be one for experienced photographers

A premium compact in every sense; the LX5 gives the user manual control and advanced features packed in a portable, stylish body that looks every bit worth the money.
