Panasonic Lumix LX5

Panasonic Lumix LX5

Today, Panasonic has introduced its new competitor in the fiercely contested point and shoot discipline. The Lumix LX5 is the point and shoot for those who simply refuse to dispense advanced functionality in favor of a practical form factor. As such, it features a 10.1-megapixel CCD supported by Panasonic’s new Venus Engine FHD image processor and a 24mm wide-angle lens with an aperture range of f2.0-3.3 for the extra realism in each of the 400 shots one battery charge is able to provide. The LX5 further features 720p video recording, a 3-inch LCD, a shutter speed of 60-1/4,000 sec, 3.8x optical zoom and a turn-and-push jog dial for unhindered usability.
