Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

 

Panasonic's latest advanced compact offers the fastest lens in its class.

Polished and refined design, Excellent lens with ultra-fast aperture, Plenty of useful shooting features, Hotshoe accessory port can accomodate an EVF

Screen needs to be even better to match its rivals, No articulating/flip-out screen, Smaller sensor than rivals

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

Here's Panasonic's latest advanced small-cam – but is it ever worth spending the best part of £500 on a compact?

A powerful and reliable back-up camera for DSLR owners or first time compact users

Panasonic Lumix LX7

 

There's no sign of the high-end compact camera market slowing down. Panasonic, which reinvigorated the affordable premium sector with the launch of the LX3 back in 2008, has been a front-runner in the category and looks to continue this success with...

Fast autofocus, f/1.4-2.3 wide aperture, great layout including physical aperture ring, small and light, sharp and detailed images, shoots raw and JPEG, neutral density (ND) filter is just a button away, can add electronic viewfinder (sold separately)

Smaller sensor than LX5, max aperture not sustained throughout zoom (so won’t always match aperture ring), high ISO sensitivities not as good as larger-sensor competitors, images lack contrast straight from camera, touchscreen ability would be useful...

Even though it doesn’t have the biggest sensor on the market, the LX7 doesn’t fail to impress.

Also on the top plate, a stiff-feel 10-option shooting mode dial presents the usual manual and fully auto choices, along with a pair of custom modes and creative built-in filter effects for adding punch to your pictures in-camera. Video recording also...

As a point and shoot camera for those wanting to upgrade to something better or a smaller back up for someone owning a G-series compact, the LX7 cuts the proverbial mustard, but, despite being as consistently competent and reliable as one might hope,...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

Taking good pictures, for the most part, is all about knowing how to control the amount of light entering your camera and how to compose your subject in as striking a manner as possible. Kit comes second, but still plays a pretty important role.

Tactile aperture control; Sharp lens; Impressive stills output.

Some noise at high sensitivities; A little more expensive than the competition.

A supremely tactile camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is one compact you'll really enjoy using. The wide aperture at either end of the zoom allows for some shallow depths of field and attractive defocused areas, but check out the similar EX2F from...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

The Panasonic LX7 is a pocket-sized camera for keen photographers, perhaps as a lightweight alternative to an SLR. Its 1/1.7in sensor is only slightly larger than the 1/2.3in sensors used in most compact cameras – and much smaller than any SLR sensor –...

Exceptional photo and video quality, nippy performance and lots of creative control – as close to perfect as we've seen from a compact camera

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 may not score as highly as other recently reviewed cameras, such as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 and Fujifilm X10, but it is still a very capable camera and the best Lumix LX camera yet. The introduction of an aperture ring...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

Boasting a 3.8x optical zoom with 24-90mm equivalent focal range the Lumix DMC-LX7 is off to a good start

Relatively lightweight and compact dimensions for a metal build enthusiasts’ camera, bright aperture lens, built-in visual effects, hotshoe and accessory port for attachment of optional extras, such as an EVF

Fixed screen LCD, priced not a great deal cheaper than one of Panasonic’s interchangeable lens G-series compacts system cameras

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review

 

If you've not yet been swayed by one of Panasonic's interchangeable lens Lumix G compact system cameras, but would still like to achieve improved quality image, then the metal construction and comprehensively featured LX series is well worth checking out.

Relatively lightweight and compact dimensions. Bright aperture lens. Hotshoe and accessory port for attachment of optional extras, such as an EVF
