Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 digital camera

 

The LS2 fits into the Lumix range near the bottom and has a price to match – a penny shy of £150. But that should be music to the ears of anyone working on a tight budget but requiring plenty of photography bang for their buck. Apart from the excessive...

Price, specification, ease of use, image stabilisation

All-plastic construction, image noise

Apart from the excessive noise issues over ISO 200, the LS2 performs remarkably well. In fact, I had to keep reminding myself that this was a sub £150 camera. There’s a smidgen of shutter lag, which became a tad frustrating and movies are only...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 review

 

A much improved model with plenty of good thinking behind it

Great images ; Good price ; Optical Image Stabilising ; Extra built-in memory

Rickety build ; Poor button layout

This camera may produce excellent images, but it doesn't come across as built to last.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2S review

 

There's nothing shaky about Panasonic's new compact camera

Exemplary build quality and finish ; Impressively sharp lens ; Excellent features

Average zoom range

Great image quality at the price, and a superb range of features at the price, including an anti-shake system sign and looks

Panasonic DMC LS2

 

The Panasonic DMC LS2 is all about ease of use. Too large to slip into a standard sized pocket it is a good choice as a starter camera. No fills, no fuss.

Image stabilisation ; Aspect ratios ; Picture quality ; Ease of use

Red eye ; Shutter lag ; Small internal memory

The Panasonic DMC LS2 could be the answer if you are looking for a cheaper digital camera. Picture quality is very good for a camera in this price range and it is the cheapest digital camera I am aware of to offer optical image stabilisation. It is...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2

 

Announced on the 4th of January 06, the Panasonic Lumix LS2 is a new 5 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2" screen and a compact plastic body. The 3x optical zoom lens is equiv. 35-105mm on a 35mm camera. The Panasonic Lumix...

Very good colour (saturated, accurate) ; Great image quality ; Image stabilisation makes it possible to get great shots in low light ; Very good exposure / metering ; Very good macro mode ; Easy to use, lots of scene modes, auto mode ; Excellent value...

The Panasonic Lumix LS2 is a budget digital camera from Panasonic, but it is very difficult to see where they have "compromised" in any way to reduce the price - the only missing features appear to be the lack of sound on videos and the smaller than...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 reviewed

 

With its most recent Lumix models, Panasonic looks poised to include image stabilization as a feature in cameras at every price point, including low-end models. And from the review of the 5 megapixel DMC-LS2 on Photoxels, it looks like the anti-shake...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS2 Digital Camera - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Digital cameras have seen plenty of advances in recent years and while most of the attention has been focused on high-end models with all their bells and whistles, the category that's actually reaped most of the rewards has been the low-end. Who could...

Optical stabilization helps greatly for hand holding the camera in dim lighting, Extremely easy to use, Very good battery life, Accurate LCD viewfinder, Fairly fast startup/shutdown, Good macro focusing capability, Good color control, not...

While most users might associate Optical Image Stabilization as something used to steady long zooms, it can be extremely beneficial to shooting close-ups, especially in low-light when you don't want to blow out your subject with a flash. On the LS2,...

Panasonic Lumix LS2

 

Panasonic's new entry level camera of 2006 is the Lumix LS2. The Lumix LS2 features 5 megapixels, a 2 inch LCD with Panasonic's new "high-angle" function as well as an optical image stabilizer, a Panasonic standard. And it's relatively a bargain too;...

Great battery life ; Optical image stabilization ; Live histogram and exposure info ; Extremely fast ; Unlimited continuous shooting ; Advanced white balance control ; User friendly with simple controls and menus ; Very affordable at $199

Low resolution LCD ; Poor movie mode ; Macro mode not as close as on other cameras ; Image quality is so-so; high noise levels ; Red-eye ; No movie zoom

The Panasonic Lumix LS2 has everything an entry-level camera should have. Featuring 5 effective megapixels, a 2 inch LCD, excellent battery life and simple menus and controls. It also adds something nice - optical image stabilization.
