Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2

PC Magazine
31 October 2007
  • Conclusion: This 10MP enthusiast camera has some great qualities, but it's plagued by performance issues.
  • Pros: High megapixel count. Can quickly and easily change aspect ratio. Excellent still image quality. RAW capabilities. High ISO. Large 2.8-inch LCD.
  • Cons: Very slow recycle time. Shutter lag. Video has a grainy quality, and the high-def mode shoots at only 15 fps.

Camera Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2

Pop Photo
20 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Panasonic could have impressed us just by fixing the faults we found in last year's compact Lumix DMC-LX1. But with its new Lumix DMC-LX2 ($500, street), it delivers a whole lot more.

  • Excerpt: I have owned this camera for about 1500 images, and I am starting to get the hang of its features. It is highly capable of taking good photos all by its self on Auto, and the scene functions helped me get some really neat campfire photos.

  • Conclusion: Reviewing the LX2 - the successor to one of the only memorable compact cameras of 2005 - has been a slightly disappointing, yet totally unsurprising experience. Like the FZ50 reviewed last month, the LX2 is an 'upgrade' that fails to address in any convincing way the single glaring problem with its...
  • Pros: Good resolution, sharp results with lots of detail (particularly at ISO 100), Unique 'widescreen' 16:9 sensor, 28mm wideangle (16:9 mode only), Comprehensive photographic control, High quality construction, lovely design, Good edge-to-edge lens performance and excellent, natural color, Feels fast...
  • Cons: Noisy sensor and excessive noise reduction at all ISO settings. Low NR setting not low enough, Underpowered flash, Auto flash mode tends to choose 1/30th second shutter speed (and a high ISO in auto ISO mode), Occasional exposure / dynamic range problems in very contrasty scenes, New control layo...

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix LX2 is a great compact (not in your back pocket though) camera. It can produce 10 megapixels of widescreen photos, a 28 mm wide-angle lens and of course has a lovely widescreen LCD on the back to show off your photos.
  • Pros: Widescreen CCD with wide-angle lens, Above average battery life, Widescreen high-resolution LCD, Fast performance, Unlimited continuous shooting at full resolution, Great movie mode
  • Cons: Above average noise with smearing and detail loss due to NR, Redeye, Sluggish frame rate at highest setting; no movie focus or optical zoom
