  • Excerpt: Now that Panasonic has already released the Lumix LX7. I remembered that I still haven’t wrote a review ( just an unboxing ) for it’s predecessor, the LX5 - which I got as a replacement for my old Panasonic ZS6, another point-and-shoot.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is a compact camera with full manual-controls and a bright stabilized ultra-wide 24-90mm F/2-3.3 lens. It has excellent expansion options that include a hot-shoe for external lighting and a port which supports an optional EVF, making it one of the very rare compact cameras which can be used at eye-level. The LX5 uses a larger-than-average 10 MP CCD sensor which delivers reasonably good results for its class.
  • Pros: F/2 Maximum Aperture, Low image noise, Reliable metering, Low optical distortion, Good focus accuracy, on the slow side, Very short shutter-lag, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Plenty of controls, Excellent anti-reflective coating on LCD, Good build quality, Good battery life, Optional EVF
  • Cons: Poor White-Balance, Low color accuracy, Autofocus delay, Unsharp MF assist, Half-press required for Exposure-Priority and correct Live-Histogram, Slow noise-reduction, Interface inefficiencies, 2s Filming delay, Poor tripod mount placement, Self-timer cancels often

  • Conclusion: If you don't need long telephoto reach, full 1080p HD video recording and a swivel screen, the Lumix DMC-LX5 is definitely worth considering. It's well made, generally well-thought-out and has a great lens. A great family camera or SLR replacement in other words, but hardly an impulse buy at £360 - so while its downsides are not huge, they do need to be weighed up.

  • Summary: Despite its shortcomings, notably its weak JPEG processing, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 delivers an excellent all-around shooting experience--fastest in its class, full featured, and capable of shooting some very nice photos.
  • Pros: Excellent raw photo quality; sharp, bright lens; compact but comfortable design; broad manual shooting feature set.
  • Cons: JPEG processing should be better.

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 performs as well as the best compact cameras on the market, but its mirrorless competitors, in price and size, deliver even better performance.
  • Pros: Fast. Great image quality in any light. Sharp display. Lots of controls for manual shooting. Hot shoe and digital accessory port. Camcorder-like video experience.
  • Cons: Pricey. Bulky. LCD shows some motion blur.

  • Excerpt: Nearly two years after Panasonic rolled out the LX3, the LUMIX DMC-LX5 is entering their lineup of digital cameras this fall. This powerful compact model has a classy "retro" look and feel, and offers loads of exposure options for advanced to novice users. The LX5 has an increased optical zoom range from 2.5x on the LX3 to 3.8x.

Product Reviews: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

PDN Gear Guide
22 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The advanced compact camera category has gotten increasingly competitive in the last year and while there are many excellent models out there my favorite is the 10.1-megapixel Panasonic Lumix LX5. Why? This small camera takes great pictures in a variety of shooting conditions and is a blast to use. No, it won’t outduel your DSLR but it makes a damn fine sidekick.
  • Pros: Pros: The best compact advanced camera on the market right now.
  • Cons: Cons: Limited external control and small buttons and knobs.
