The new LUMIX LX7 is equipped with a fully redesigned lens, image sensor and image processing engine and continues in the tradition of one of the most popular serious compact digital camera among photo enthusiasts. The LX7 features 10.1MP resolution (on a new 1/1.7-in. MOS sensor), a new 24mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens with 3.8x optical zoom and F1.4 brightness at wide-end and F2.3 at tele-end, optical Image Stabilization to help reduce blurred shots due to camera shake, a new 7.6-cm (3.0-in.) 920k-dot Intelligent LCD screen, and Full HD Movie 1920×1080 60p videos with stereo sound.

The new sensor and Venus Engine allows a high-speed Continuous Shooting at 11 fps in full resolution. Advanced users will appreciate PASM shooting modes, RAW, a hot shoe, built-in Flash, optional Optical View Finder DMW-VF1, optional tilt-shift Live View Finder DMW-LVF2, and optional Wide Conversion Lens. The LX7 is equipped with an Aperture Ring, internal ND Filter, a new Focus Lever, Rear Dial and electronic Level Gauge. The new Aperture Ring makes selecting an aperture very intuitive and convenient. The internal ND filter makes it possible to reduce the light to use slower shutter speed by 3 steps for creative effects.

A dedicated movie button records high resolution Full HD 1920×1080 60p videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format with stereo sound. You can also record high-speed videos at 120 fps (NTSC / HD) / 100 fps (PAL / HD) in MP4 format for dramatic slow motion playback. A Creative Video Mode lets you adjust the shutter speed and aperture when shooting video.

Want to get creative? The LX7 has 16 filters, plus Time Lapse, Multi Exposure and Panorama.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 promises to be a popular choice among enthusiast photographers desiring a pocketable high performance digital camera that captures high quality images. It is available in Black (and White in some countries), priced at about US $499.99 (CAD $499.99).
