Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 – Review @ Digtal Camera Info

DigitalCameraInfo has posted a review on Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1, a digital camera with 8.4 Megapixels, 4x Leica optical zoom lens, a 2.5″ LCD screen and an optical image stabilizer. They wrote:

“Likes: 16:9 movie mode, Nice LCD screen, High quality Leica lens, Durable aluminum body, Decent burst mode, User friendly exposure controls, Thorough software package
Dislikes: Expensive, Images are extremely noise (ISO 200 setting is pushing it, 400 is unusable), Rickety pop-up flash – placed off lens axis, Slippery zoom toggle, Small controls, Poorly translated scene help screen

In conclusion: With 8.4 megapixels, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, and a Leica 4x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 has a lot to offer consumers. That is, consumers with lots of money to offer Panasonic. The LX1 retails for $599, which is a substantial amount of money for a compact digital camera. The camera body itself isn’t especially gorgeous; it is more functional than sleek. The camera body has some good aspects to it: sturdy construction, a large LCD that can be viewed at just about any angle, and the compact dimensions; however, if consumers are expected to drop $599 on a point-and-shoot camera, noise should not be an issue. “
