Panasonic LX2 Review

Review Date: Nov 1, 2006

Category: Serious to Advanced Amateur

Panasonic LX2
Photoxels Editor's Choice 2006


This Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

This review has been submitted to DIWA Awards.

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.
