    Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 10 Megapixel Digital Camera

    The DMC-LX3 is a system camera with a wide variety of options to choose from to match your shooting situations and style, including a fast-draw Leather Carrying Case, Wide Conversion Lens, External Optical Viewfinder, ND Filter, and PL Filter. The External Optical Viewfinder is ideal for snapshots or shooting in bright outdoor light, as it gives you a clear view exactly when you need it. These accessories let you further improve the DMC-LX3's mobility, while upgrading the system to ensure you don't miss those once-in-a-lifetime shooting opportunities.Panasonic has not yielded to the sirens of marketing and the LX3 does a "mere" 10 Mpix. In addition, engineers have also succeeded in increasing the surface sensitivity of the photodiodes 19%. Information which augur well in high sensitivities. Furthermore, the LX3 is a rare brand of equipment to climb up to 3200 ISO. Yet we must not go beyond 800 ISO. Despite the presence of the new processor image processing Venus Engine 4, the management of electronic noise is not the strong point of the new compact. However, the results are far from catastrophic.

    Opening speed scenes: everything is there. Including iA mode for Intelligent Automation (not Artificial Intelligence, Panasonic has willingly confusion): a mode in which the user does not choose. It activates only the macro mode if needed, detects and adjusts the scenes, correct the sensitivity if the subject is moving, he focuses on the faces. In short, this may surprise a compact expert, unless it considers - sacrilege for Panasonic. Is intended for an audience of enthusiasts which seeks above all the most compact of the market. In the meaning: those who make the best photos with the greatest flexibility possible. While the LX3 scores with its unusual characteristics: its HD video, its super wide-angle.

    Features of Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

    A large 1/1.63 inch CCD sensor 10.1 megapixels for a spectacular image quality

    The large CCD sensor 1 / 1, 63''of the LX3 to 10.1 megapixels allows the use of pixels approximately 45% larger than those of 10 megapixel cameras ordinary. Result: The sensitivity and saturation are higher by about 45% to those of ordinary models. This large CCD allows maximization of the photodiode size to boost sensitivity by around 19% and saturation by around 15%. Usually, images of 16:9 or 3:2 aspect ratio is obtained by reducing images 4:3, meaning that these images do not derive the maximum of these formats. The CCD of DMC-LX3 can reproduce images shot with the goal setting between 24mm and 60mm in all three formats, it is always possible to capture dynamic shots. The LX3 also supports the RAW format allows the user to more easily rework their photos.

    An objective of edge LEICA DC VARIO-Summicron f / 2 very bright and ultra wide-angle

    In the LX3, a dramatic step was taken in comparison with DMC-LX2 with a new optical construction, the LEICA DC VARIO-Summicron f / 2 24mm ultra wide-angle. With the new objective f / 2 on LX3 operating at speeds higher shutter to capture clear, crisp images even in very low light. This high-quality objective can take great pictures with a blurred background of the most beautiful artistic effect with the shallow depth of field of the lens f / 2. The LEICA DC VARIO-Summicron minimizes distortion even in wide-angle to obtain photographs and realistic level of detail of great finesse. Equivalent to a conventional 35 mm: 24-60 mm

    Venus Engine IV processor: an image processing LSI for fast response to high image quality

    The Venus Engine IV features a High Sensitivity mode that allows the DMC-LX3 to record up to ISO 3200 at full resolution and even up to ISO 6400 using the high sensitivity for shooting in almost complete darkness full and without flash . capabilities in image processing are also multitasking Venus Engine IV exceptional response time. The tripping time is only about 0005 seconds. The rapid response of the device facilitates spontaneous shots. In burst shooting fast , the LX3 reached a speed of about 6 frames per second. The new burst mode with flash , it allows for shooting with an emission of flash continuously until the memory card is full . This image processing engine is also very advanced energy-efficient. Its low power consumption can take nearly 380 photos (CIPA) without recharging the battery. 3-megapixel recording (4:3), 2.5 megapixel (3:2) and 2 megapixels (16:9). Max. 5 images in 3-megapixel recording (4:3), 2.5 megapixel (3:2) and 2 megapixels (16:9). The speed of shooting continuously varies with the memory card, image size and compression settings of the image. The number of shots depends on the memory card, the size of the image and method of image compression.

    A screen high-end 3-inch 000 by 460 pixels of great readability

    The LX3 is equipped with a screen of 3 inches (in 3: 2) clear and bright with 460 000 pixels, for a reading and shooting more comfortable. The intelligent display function detects the light level and automatically increases the backlight up to 40% max. when shooting outside in bright sunlight for example.Options that extend the fun of photography in the field of high definition with the DMC-LX3, you can shoot in high resolution (1920x1080 pixels), ideal for viewing full screen on a 16:9 TV. The movie mode of the DMC-LX3 record HD movies 1280x720 dynamic format with a smooth 20 frames per second, and WVGA (848 x 480) and classic VGA (640 x 480), the sound quality was also improved .*/** The DMC-LX3 also offers musical slideshows. Simply select the photos and select the environment (natural, slow, urban or swing) is in the best images. Result: a slide show easy to make and very emotional. * In movie mode, recording time depends on the capacity of the SDHC memory card / SD. From 30 fps VGA, 30 frames per second WGA or HD (1280x720), it is recommended to use a fast memory card with "10MB / s or more on the packaging. Some sounds of movement goals can be achieved.
