Photography Equipment Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 Review

8 years 10 months ago - 7 years 1 day ago #71871 by PhotographyTalk
"We had to wait two years for Panasonic to revamp the LX3, so when we initially locked eyes with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 , a tidal wave of question marks bombarded our minds. How is this a different camera? Why has hardly anything changed on the outside? However, upon further investigation, it was apparent that nearly all of the LX5's improvements resided under the hood, including AVCHD Lite with full manual video controls, gaggles of Art filters for creative expression, new image processing, and other enticing features. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 battles the Canon PowerShot G12 and Nikon Coolpix P7000, and we'll tell you that the little LX5 gives both of the aforementioned giants a run for their money."

Sounds like an excellent "carry-along" choice, especially due to the size. I keep an older Panasonic model in a belt pouch for those times that the DSLR is not appropriate. Since the overall quality and versatility is fairly even, size does matter (small size that is).

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I own this camera. Ive had it about 10 months. Love it

While i must say that its my first digital "camera" that takes decent video... and i find myself using that feature most often, its also the nicest "point and shoot" ive owned. I cant compare it to other cameras in its range (never used them)... but i will certainly be keeping this on myself as a second/pocket camera for years to come.
