10.2 Mega pixels 4x Optical Zoom with MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer and 28mm wide angle LEICA DC lens.
Panasonic is proud to introduce the Lumix DMC-LX2, successor to the DMC-LX1, which has received high acclaim worldwide for its unique 16:9 wide CCD, plentiful functions, and smart design. The DMC-LX2 inherits the f/2.8 28mm wide angle LEICA DC lens, 4x optical zoom (equivalent to 28mm to 112mm on a 35mm film camera) and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) system in addition to an enhanced CCD capable of 10.2-megapixels and larger 2.8 16:9 wide LCD.
Silver AwardThe DMC-LX2 was awarded the Silver Award in Digital Photo Magazine, June 2007 :" Colours are strong and vibrant, giving ready-to-print results straight from the camera."
The DMC-LX2 is unique in that it incorporates triple-wide features of 28 mm wide angle LEICA DC lens, 16:9 wide CCD and 16:9 wide LCD. Not only that, the LX2 is further distinguished from other cameras by its full manual controllability with a joystick allowing users to easily enjoy creative shooting. The DMC-LX2 also boasts Venus Engine III high performance image processing LSI to dramatically reduce the noise that challenged the predecessor, realizing image recording at max. ISO 1600 high sensitivity setting at full resolution.
To fight against the major cause of blurred images, Panasonic invented the MEGA O.I.S. system taking advantage of its superior lens technology to compensate for handshake ? a feature which has long been incorporated into the LUMIX range of cameras. In addition, to also compensate for the other major cause of blurred images ? movement of the subject ? the LX2 is also equipped with the world?s first Intelligent ISO Control (hereafter I.I.C.) within the advanced image processing LSI Venus Engine III. When set to the I.I.C., the Venus Engine III detects the subject's movement and adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the subject movement and the light condition automatically. Panasonic?s excellent image stabilizing system allows users to take clear, crisp images in any situation automatically, leaving everything to the camera.
