Time to upgrade

M. Seither "The glider", Amazon

  • Summary: Great little camera. By now though (2009) the LX3 is available and is very much better (if a bit bigger). If, however, you just want a 16:9 wide angle and don't shoot in low light much and can get a great price (you should by now) it's worth a shot.

Unique camera

  • Summary: Not to sound redundant from the other reviews, I'll highlight my pros and cons: Pros: -TRUE 16:9 videos (848x480 pixel MOVs, not the cropped kind. Product description was wrong stating that it can capture only up to 640x480). -Lengthy 20min video captures if you have a 2GB SD card.

  • Summary: I've worked for many years in the photo/video business as a camera operator for some of the top news shows on television and can honestly say this camera is current technology at its best.

Panasonic Lumix LX1

Dr. Lothar Riedel, Amazon
10 August 2006
  • Summary: I love this camera as an alternative to my Nikon D200 whenever weight or space is an issue. It is one of the few pocket-size cameras on the market that can give you the option to shoot in RAW and offers extensive manual control. The Leica lens is superb and so is the picture quality.

So So! Very bad video! Sorry Panasonic!

  • Summary: I have had just about every digital camera you can mention - but this is the first review I've written. I really wanted to like (actually love) this camera - could not wait to get it! Wow - I.S., 8MP, Leica lens - what else could you want!

a joy to use

Rumi "Ceci", Amazon

  • Summary: This is an incredibly good camera. For it's diminuative size, there's very little "wrong" with it. Sure, it doesn't excel at high ISO shots and due to it's size, the flash is a little weak and there's no optical viewfinder. But other than those things, I can find no real flaw.

A dandy travel companion

  • Summary: Michael Reichmann brought this camera to my attention in his excellent photographic website, Luminous Landscape. He takes the little camera along with his more serious gear in order to capture snapshots and the occasional gallery quality image.

Exceptional camera...but

TEH "tehschhi", Amazon
7 November 2005
  • Summary: Finally, after waiting nearly 6 months, the DMC-LK1K arrived. In almost every respect, it meets or exceeds my expectations. The 16:9 aspect ratio is exceptional; density and color are spectacular for a point and shoot; the bracket mode takes all the guess work out of exposure; and the optics are...

Brilliant piece of art and perfect Leica lens + O.I.S.!

Thomas Tompson "Tommy", Amazon
31 October 2005
  • Summary: First of all I want to point out to the previous reviewer who has stated that digital photography website claims something about very high noice level of Panasonic lx1. This is totally untruth. There is nowhere in review of lx1 you can find such a statement.
