The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 comes close
to being the ideal compact digital camera that
many advanced photographers have been waiting
for. In its feature set, it is almost identical
to the FZ50, and provides full photographic control.
It has fast performance with 1 sec. startup and
no practical shutter lag. It has a 16:9 [HDTV]
aspect ratio image sensor and the 28mm wide-angle
lens is perfect for landscape and group shots.
The 112mm tele coverage is ideal for portraits.
An extra large 2.8-in. LCD monitor makes composition
and viewing very comfortable. Selectable AF Area
makes focusing on off-center subjects easy.
Image quality is very good to excellent at ISO
100, with low noise and images retaining most
of the details. At higher ISOs, images suffer
from noise and loss of detail, and the LX2 is
therefore not recommended for snapshooters.
But, if you like -- and know how to use -- full
manual control, the LX2 is a delight to use.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 will appeal
to advanced amateur photographers desiring a compact
take-anywhere digital camera with superb photographic
control and excellent image quality at ISO 100.
