  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital compact camera The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 was introduced with grandeur during an international press meeting. The decision to not go for a higher resolution amount, but instead for improvements, was received positively. The expectations were high up, while the camera still had to prove itself in practice. The paper specifications Panasonic revealed looked excellent.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 is an ideal compact for enthusiasts who demand full manual control and specialist features in a small and light package. Crucially, the LX3 also addresses some of the issues concerning image quality which faced its predecessor. We’ll kick-off with the sensor.
  • Pros: 24mm coverage, OIS and f2.0., Full manual, RAW and hotshoe., HD movie recording., Screen with 460k pixels.
  • Cons: Maximum coverage only 60mm., Lens cap can be inconvenient., 3:2 screen but max resolution at 4:3., Better IQ than LX2, but still some noise.

  • Excerpt: Panasonic’s snapper tries to combine the best of both worlds – the flexibility of manual exposure options in the small, compact body of a standard point-and-shoot. Can it pull it off?
  • Pros: Slightly smaller than the Canon G10 and Nikon P6000, the LX3 is a glorious-looking compact with a decidedly retro flavour. But this doesn’t compromise performance, and the maximum f2.0 aperture at the wide end means you can shoot fantastic shots even in low-light situations, not to mention beautiful close-ups with a pleasingly narrow focal depth. Manual controls and RAW shooting should keep the enthusiasts busy, while more amateur snappers can simply flick the setting...
  • Cons: The 2.5x zoom is a touch limited compared to many rivals, and the camera body feels a little less solid than the Nikon P6000 and Canon G10. There’s a removable lens cap, which is a nice retro nod but means more fiddling than is strictly necessary. We’d also have liked to see slightly larger buttons used – fat-fingered photographers may struggle with the Toytown-esque controls.

  • Pros: Handling, design, build, iA, image quality, lens, manual control
  • Cons: The lack of an optical viewfinder may irk, while the VF1 accessory finder sacrifices the hot shoe, the tiny joy stick control is fiddly to use too
