Introducing the DMC-LX5 - a successor to the DMC-LX3, acclaimed worldwide by photography enthusiasts. The premium compact camera is fully re-designed in the lens from its predecessor with changes in the CCD and the image processing engine, and with further improvements and upgrades to the camera, ensuring the new LX5 produces high picture quality and creative images.
Creative 'Wide Angle' Shots
The newly developed, super bright, F2.0 ultra wide angle 24mm LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens minimises distortion for stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail. With the extra advantage of a 24mm wide angle, rare on a compact camera, the LX5 offers an extraordinarily large viewing space and with thanks to an extended optical zoom from 2.5x(60mm) to 3.8x(90mm) even more versatility and opportunity to capture the perfect shot. This advanced lens also makes it easy to produce beautiful photos with pleasing soft-focused background thanks to the shallow depth of field provided by the extra light
The highly acclaimed 10.1-megapixel CCD in the LX3 has been redesigned to achieve the expansion of dynamic range by increasing the sensitivity and the saturation. Modifications to the Venus Engine FHD provide advanced signal processing in both photo and movie recording. The high sensitivity, made possible by the alternations in the new sensor and signal processing, elevates the picture quality to capture stunning clear, sharp and blur-free images in even low light situations.
Save Memories with Movie in AVCHD Lite
For movie recording, the DMC-LX5 is now compatible with long time high quality HD movie recording in AVCHD Lite, in addition to the conventional motion JPEG format. A host of creative options, including Creative Movie mode, which lets the user set the shutter speed and aperture manually to make even more impressive movies. Changing the shutter speed brings special effects to movies, which is especially suitable for shooting fast-moving subject. Further modes featured are My Color mode and Film mode available for more extended expression not only in photography but also in videography.
Equipped with iA
Panasonic’s popular iA (Intelligent Auto) is also available in movie recording. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), Face Detection, and Intelligent Scene Selector support shooting beautiful movie with ease. The Intelligent Scene Selector automatically switches between Normal, Portrait, Macro, Scenery, and Low Light modes according to the situation to optimize visual quality while the Intelligent Exposure also optimises the exposure to prevent over/under exposure part from occurring.
New design to support easy shooting
Design of the LX5 has also been improved to pursue high operability - the thickened grip for easier hold and the newly incorporated turn-and-push jog dial achieves various selections and setting more quickly. Situation on the top of the camera, the hot shoe allows attachment of advanced accessories such as an optional Live View Finder, which helps shooting under strong daylight with high visibility. The 3.0-inch large 460,000-dot high resolution Intelligent LCD is also redesigned by adopting High CRI (Color Rendering Index) backlight LED to greatly increase the color reproduction, offering remarkable visibility both in shooting and playing back images in any conditions from at dark night to under dazzling sunlight. Despite the high performance and the maintained size of the camera body, the battery life is extended to shoot 400 pictures (CIPA) per a single charge.
Organising captured photos and motion pictures with greater ease and fun
The latest version of Panasonic’s editing software, PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.0 HD Edition, comes bundled with DMC-LX5. With quick start-up and fast reading of images, the PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.0 HD Edition makes it possible to sort and organise photos. The Face Recognition function, that recognizes the faces in the picture, automatically sorting the photos by the registered faces without picking out each photo one by one when you only want pictures of a specific person. You can also enjoy slideshows with a variety of effects and use your iTunes music library as background music. Motion pictures can be uploaded directly to YouTube using the built-in YouTube uploader, even in HD (High Definition) quality. It also lets you create a 360-degree rotation panorama file in MOV, which is especially easy if Panorama Assist mode in the camera is used. Experience and feel the outstanding benefit of the PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.0 HD Edition. It will surely allow you to view, edit and archive your captured photos and motion pictures with greater ease and fun.

Solid build, none of the easily jogged top dial, smooth zoom action .... and btw I love the removable cap I have to say (after the trauma with the mechanical one mentioned above). Another thing about the lens cap is that if you try to turn the camera on with it still in place you get a polite reminder to remove it - on my old erstwhile favourite Olympus CW 7070 if you forgot to take it off, the extending lens simply smashed it off!!.. without apparent damage I have to say!!!!
I wouldn't be concerned about one comment about it being "soft at f2" that is universal at the edges of all lenses (and who is looking for good depth of field at that aperture???) .... it is still pin sharp where it counts - this is a superb lens on an amazing camera...... and don't forget that because an f2 lets in twice the light of a f2.8 the (large) screen illumination is startlingly clear...Read more ›
Dislikes - there are very few of these, and each is forgivable. The manual is provided on a CD so you need a computer to view it (or a printer and lots of ink!). The camera comes with a neck strap - I replaced this immediately with a decent wrist strap because it's easier to fit in my pocket and keeps the 'compact' camera look. The LCD screen on the back shows finger prints too well - although cleaning with a soft cloth removes them easily enough.
Likes - where do I start? I quite like the lens cap - unusual on a compact camera but good protection with no chance of getting jammed or stuck. I know some people will find it 'old fashioned' but at least it has the option to fit a retaining cord so you can't lose it (I just take it off and put it in my pocket - seems easy enough). The camera feels solid and well built and fits my hand well (always a good sign, and making it a pleasure to use). Controls are easy to access despite the small buttons. Most of the controls I want are directly accessible, although some of the more advanced features are buried in the menu system and this takes a bit of getting used to - I'd rather have it this way however and keep to a simple number of useful buttons. Image quality is excellent, for both stills and HD video. My first picture (open box, insert battery and card, start playing...Read more ›

Been really pleased with this but it is a landscape camera at heart. If you want to take quick snaps and zoom in further then choose another. I will doubtless own this for years. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Bar.

I really like this camera. It fits into most coat pockets, allowing my to take pics where a DSLR would be too bulky.
Good pictures in low light. Read more
