Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1

PC Magazine
16 March 2006
  • Conclusion: A versatile camera for those who want something smaller than a D-SLR, with lots of pro features and controls, but the images are noisy and you'll find the shutter lag irritating.
  • Pros: Shoots at true 16:9 aspect ratio. Zoom lens starts at true wide angle. Excellent LCD. Impressive battery life.
  • Cons: Pricey for a compact camera. Flash is too strong (though adjustable). Images noisier than expected. Some pincushion distortion. Noticeable shutter lag.

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 ($599) isn't just another midsized camera. In fact, it has two features that make it stand out from most of the other digital cameras on the market: image stabilization and a 16:9 CCD (and an 8.4 Megapixel one at that). I'll take each of these separately.
  • Pros: 4X zoom lens starts at 28 mm, Unique 16:9 CCD allows for near-panoramic landscape shots, Optical image stabilization, Robust performance, especially with a high speed SD card, Full manual controls, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, LCD usable in low light, Support for RAW and TIFF format (...
  • Cons: Images are too noisy, especially at high ISOs; some jaggies, Widescreen sensor, but no widescreen LCD, Some redeye, No RAW image manipulation software included, No USB 2.0 High Speed support, Small memory card included

  • Conclusion: Panasonic continues to offer innovation where most manufacturers have become content with an endless round of 'me too' product and minor upgrades. The LX1 is a perfect example; a camera designed for serious photographers, a camera that has the potential - on paper at least - to be the ideal...

  • Cons: Noise, noise, noise, Occasional exposure / dynamic range problems in very contrasty scenes, Supplied raw converter useless, Default settings a little over-sharpened, a little too contrasty, Quite expensive

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic DMC LX1 takes very good photos. It has a very strong set of features yet manages to retain a compact size and a fair amount of ease of use. With its wide angle lens I can see this camera being very popular indeed.
  • Pros: Indoor photos, Compact model consider features and controls, Easy to use, Optical image stabilizer
  • Cons: Small capacity memory card supplied

  • Summary: : The Panasonic Lumix LX1 is in the unique position of being the only digital camera to offer a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio with wide angle at 8 megapixels (other Panasonic digital cameras feature a 16:9 aspect ratio but not at the full resolution).
  • Pros: Very good image quality, Very compact and stylish with a solid metal body (will fit in trouser pockets), Built in "Mege Optical Image Stabilisation" allows blur free low-light photos., 2.5" screen is good with a high resolution (207,000 pixels), Unique wide-angle / 16:9 aspect ratio - some people...
  • Cons: High noise (ISO200 and above practically unusable), Screen isn't widescreen, Expensive compared to other compact 8 megapixel digital cameras, Video doesn't "gain-up" in low-light, Some purple fringing
