Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 Review

October 13, 2006 | Mark Goldstein | Photography Blog | Comment |

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2The Panasonic LX2 is a 10 megapixel digital camera with a unique twist - it offers a true 16:9 wide-screen sensor and a 2.8 inch widescreen LCD to match. Panasonic originally conceived the LX series of wide-screen cameras to be used in tandem with their 16:9 televisions. More recently they have been promoting the printing side of things, with a joint announcement with Epson last month. The Panasonic LX2 is also a camera for the discerning photographer, with a 4x zoom lens starting at 28mm wide, support for the RAW file format and full manual, aperture-priority and shutter-priority exposure modes. Add an improved ISO range of 100-1600, a High Sensitivity mode, pop-up flash and optical image stabilisation, and you have the makings of a great pocket camera. But can the Panasonic LX2 deliver on those promises, and more importantly does it improve on the noisy images of the original DMC-LX1? Read our extensive review now to find out.
