Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

 

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.

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.

Pricey. Bulky. LCD shows some motion blur.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

 

The 10-megapixel Lumix LX5 backs up its F2.0 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens (3.8X optical zoom, 24mm to 95mm) with manual controls for both still shots and video, a great macro mode that practically lets you touch the lens to your subject, fast access to...

Ultra-wide-angle lens with F2.0 aperture ; Macro mode lets you get extremely close to subject ; Very fast autofocus and quiet zoom motors ; Superior video capture and manual video controls ; Manual controls for aperture, shutter, and focus ; Very...

Intelligent Auto mode produces underexposed images ; Some camera settings are buried deep in menus ; Limited optical zoom range

The Lumix LX5 isn't the most novice-friendly camera, but it offers an insane amount of power for a fixed-lens camera when you dig into its manual controls.

Camera of the Year: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

 

Panasonic's stealthy little 10.1-megapixel sharpshooter has the guts of a pro rig tucked inside a compact body.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 review

 

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LX5 delivers a long-awaited update to its relatively old enthusiast compact camera, the LX3. Though it looks much the same and has similar specs, the changes are a definite improvement. They include a new sensor, larger zoom...

Excellent raw photo quality; sharp, bright lens; compact but comfortable design; broad manual shooting feature set.

JPEG processing should be better.

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.

The DSC-G3 is an innovative camera with integrated storage and Wi-Fi, but price and some performance issues slow it down.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the much-anticipated successor to the LX3, a compact digital camera that proved especially popular with experienced photographers due to its fast lens, full range of manual shooting modes and RAW file support. The new LX5...

So, there are elements of the LX5 that will immediately be familiar and non-threatening to those who have tried one of Panasonic's point and shoots yet are now looking for something meatier and more future-proof. And there are other elements, such as...
