Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

 

A Leica in all but name, is the LX3 the perfect photographer's compact camera?

Exceptional image quality ; Manual controls ; Compact design ; Great build quality ; Fast lens

Limited zoom range ; Limited video modes ; Expensive ; Slightly fiddly controls

The Panasonic LX3 is one of the very few digital cameras that I would consider buying for myself. It is a superbly designed and immensely capable all-purpose compact that will satisfy any keen photographer, but is also capable of producing good results...

It's got a no-nonsense approach and is certainly style icon – but can the LX3 best the likes of Canon and Nikon?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera

 

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX3 is a modern-looking retro-styled digital compact designed to offer the enthusiast snapper a compact high-quality shooting environment, and to do it, Panasonic has pulled off a few neat tricks. The camera is great to use and...

Handling, design, build, iA, image quality, lens, manual control

The lack of an optical viewfinder may irk, while the VF1 accessory finder sacrifices the hot shoe, the tiny joy stick control is fiddly to use too

The camera is great to use and handle, it looks nice and it seems to do exactly what it says on the tin: produce superb images with great detail, fine colour and white balance control, rich detail in shadows and with around a stop and half of headroom...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera - First Look

 

A brave stand by Panasonic sees the DMC-LX3 arrive without playing chase in the ever more pixel race. Panasonic has decided not increase the resolution (for the record, the LX3 is a 10-megapixel camera) at the expense of image quality but has created a...

Slight image softness (a pre-production foible, hopefully)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 review

 

The super compact for the point-and-shoot enthusiast

Excellent build quality, sharp lens, good image quality even at high ISOs

Fairly pricey, limited 24-60mm zoom span, AF can be slow to aquire subject

A brilliant camera at a good price

The Panasonic Lumix LX3 review: with its wideangle lens, RAW shooting and HD video capture... is there anything the LX3 can't do?

Panasonic DMC LX3

 

The Panasonic DMC LX3 is one of the most advanced compact digital cameras available. My review walks you through all the key features and analyses the quality of the pictures the camera produces. There are also shutter lag times and price comparisons.

Panasonic have put together an impressive mix of picture quality and features. I also like the design and build quality of the DMC LX3. This is a serious digital camera and is well worth close inspection.
