Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 D-SLR Review

best4reviews.com
21 November 2008
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC L10 is easy to use, provides plenty of shooting options and features and is worthy of close consideration for anyone trading up from a high spec’ compact or those looking from more from their photography.
  • Pros: Lens, OIS, white balance, live view, responsive, nice menus, low ISO image quality, handling, flip out LCD makes the most of Live View.
  • Cons: Small viewfinder, noise in images at high ISO, build, slower aperture kit lens (than L1), no depth of field preview in Live View.

  • Conclusion: Panasonic's second digital SLR is a far more conventional affair than its first attempt, the DSC-L1. It's also quite obviously aimed at a very different type of user - the beginner / first time user / upgrader from a compact.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution and 'per pixel' definition, but really need to shoot raw to get the best results, Subtle, restrained color and contrast (though see below), Better highlight dynamic range than Olympus equivalent (still a little tight in the highlights), Excellent handling and ergonomics, Brig...
  • Cons: Small and dark viewfinder view (difficult to see fine detail, difficult to check focus), New kit lens slow (F3.8-5.6) considering its size, In-camera JPEG processing produces images that are soft and don't show true potential of sensor, Many will find default settings rather too under saturated w...

Camera Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10

Pop Photo
16 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Panasonics sleek designs, and innovations such as MEGA Optical Image Stabilization, make it a major force in digital compacts. But powerhouse status in DSLRs has been elusive. Despite live view and a clever pop-up flash, its first DSLR, the 7.5MP Lumix DMC-L1, hasnt grabbed much market share since...

  • Summary: The Panasonic DMC-L10 is only Panasonic's second digital SLR to date – its predecessor was the slightly odd, Rangefinder-like L1, always more statement of intent than viable sales proposition.

  • Conclusion: The package overall does work well, I’m not convinced on some of the compact digital camera features that have been added (although face detection is a worthwhile addition for sure). But for high quality pictures and if you stick to Auto mode simple ease of use its not half bad.

What Digital Camera
19 December 2007
  • Summary: While the Panasonic Lumix L10 is a capable, attractive and often innovative model, it also seems to me to be a somewhat schizophrenic entity. It’s packed with entry-level features, such as the low burst rate, 1/4000sec top shutter speed, the scene modes and PC-free operation, yet also has that...

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 is the second digital SLR from the Japanese consumer electronics giant. The L10 is the follow-up to the DMC-L1, which didn't end up in the hands of that many photographers (apparently), and I think it's ~$1700 price tag had a lot to do with that.
  • Pros: Very good image quality (though see issues below), Well built, easy to hold camera body, Impressive kit lens has nice range, optical image stabilization, Flip-out, rotating 2.5" LCD display, Live view with contrast detect AF, face detection, histogram, easy manual focus, and more (though see issu...
  • Cons: Doesn't seem $500 better than the similar Olympus E-510, Sensor a little noisier than average; too much noise reduction at high ISOs (shoot in RAW to get around that), Contrast detect AF and associated features only work with two lenses (at time of publication), Sluggish focusing performance in l...
