Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

on Dec 11, 2009



Finally my darling decided to get herself a new camera... Introducing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3!!! I've been eyeing on this little camera for a very long time... I consider this camera as mine because most of the time I'm the one using it... Officially it belongs to my darling but theoretically it belongs to me... Muahahahaha...

So why LX3??? The reason is because this is one helluva camera... Many people and even professional photographer categorized it as a pro compact camera... It has almost all the function found on a DSLR... LX3 lets you adjust a lot of things ranging from white balance, ISO, aperture, shutter speed and etc... It even lets you take picture in RAW format!!!

Besides all these goodies, there are two more things that make this camera so formidable... 24mm wide angle lens and aperture ranging from F2.0 to F2.8... You can't find this on others compact camera... The LX3 is actually an identical twins to the much more expensive Leica D-Lux4... So nothing to be surprise of if the LX3 picture is knife sharp because the LX3 is actually using Leica lens...

The only thing that most people don't like about the LX3 is the range... Only 2.5 times zoom for this camera... So the maximum range is only a mere 60mm... But who cares about the tele range... Wide angle is the way to go!!!

If you like shooting landscape, this is a MUST have camera for you... The wide angle is really irresistible... Besides that, you can use it for macro shooting as well... The LX3 will let you shoot at an incredible near distance of 1cm from the subject... This is just crazy!!!

This compact camera will be a very good sidekick for my DSLR... Just like Batman and Robin!!!
