High Quality imaging with the focus on creativity and expandability.
The Panasonic DMC-LX5 features a host of high-end facilities, including a fast, bright Leica glass, high sensitivity CCD sensor and high resolution monitor. Its expandability reaches out to include viewfinders, filters and external flashguns to widen your creative opportunities.
The Leica DC Vario-Summicron zoom lens on the DMC-LX5 covers the equivalent of 24-90mm focal length, giving approx 213% more image coverage than would be possible from a 35mm optic. The maximum aperture is f2.0-3.3, ideal for shooting in low light conditions, avoiding blur.
The large 1/1.63", 10-megapixel sensor gives smooth image quality even when light conditions become dim. Its wide dynamic range gives a vibrant, true-to-life image quality. You can also choose what aspect ratio to shoot in from 4:3, 3:2, or 16:9.
This fast and efficient image processor enables the inclusion of Intelligent Resolution Technology. This analyses image data on a pixel-by-pixel basis and identifies image areas for outlines, textures and smooth regions. The net effect of this is an increase in zoom range, or "Intelligent Zoom" of 1.3x - effectively extending the optical zoom range from 3.8x to5x with no loss of pixel count.
Records movies in either AVCHD Lite or Motion JPEG formats, both at 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. Dolby Digital Creator technology gives excellent sound quality, while Intelligent Auto and Shutter and Aperture Priority modes can be selected. The HDMI output makes viewing on your HD TV easy, while Viera Link enables your footage to be controlled using your Viera TV remote.
The Lumix DMC-LX5 has been designed with the creative user in mind. Its manual functions are accessible via its jog dial and manual focus is easily obtained by switching modes on the lens barrel.
The LXS comes with a large, bright 3.0" LCD monitor with high resolution 460, 000 dot display for a bright and sharp view.
