LuminousLandscape recently posted their review on Panasonic DMC-LX1, a 8.4 megapixels camera with CCD chip, RAW support, true native 16.9 wide aspect ratio sensor, and an optical image stabilization. In conclusion they wrote:
“I really like the Panasonic LX-1. To have a shirt-pocket-sized camera with a high quality Leica lens, optical image stabilization, wide-aspect ratio 8.4MP chip, and decent manual handling, is a pleasure. Anyone coming from a DSLR will find that the shooting is slower, and the need to use the LCD for composition and focusing less then ideal (though typical of digicams). But then there aren’t that many DSLRs with 4:1 zoom lenses that will fit in a shirt pocket, so the argument is moot.
If you’re looking for a serious camera of this size, that requires you to expend some additional effort in post processing, yet rewards with portfolio grade image quality, the Panasonic LX-1will not disappoint.”
