The DMC-LX5 packages an f/2.0 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens with 24mm wide-angle and 3.8x optical zoom. This low-distortion, high-resolution lens lets you capture truly dynamic 24mm wide-angle images while rendering the tiniest nuances clearly, from corner to corner. The fully open f/2.0-3.3 aperture and iris diaphragm also work together to produce stunning scenes with gentle soft focusing. The 24mm wide-angle lens captures approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to a normal 35mm lens. Allowing beautiful, true-to-life images with outstanding clarity and detail, the Lumix LX5 compact camera has set a new benchmark in quality, performance and creative capabilities. A benchmark recognised by the fact that it’s now the preferred choice of professionals and serious amateurs the world over.
The super bright Leica Lens
You can shoot rich, vibrant, expressive shots in wide perspective and capture every detail with the Lumix LX5’s low distortion, high-resolution Leica lens. With a 24 mm wide-angle and 3.8x optical zoom you can capture over 200% more image than a standard 35 mm lens.
Advanced image capturing technology
The 10.1 megapixel high sensitivity CCD brings an unprecedented image quality to this compact camera. This leading edge technology enables the Lumix LX5 to capture incredibly sharp, high-resolution and noiseless images even in low lighting situations. Images can also be shot in any of the three aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2 or 16:9.) and with the lens set anywhere from 24 mm to 90 mm.
Exquisite resolution even in extended zoom
The Lumix LX5’s Intelligent Resolution technology automatically detects and optimises key areas within both still and moving images. The result - image resolution is vastly improved and pictures are consistently crisp and clear.
The Intelligent Zoom also extends the zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x while still maintaining image quality, even when combined with digital zoom (a 3.8x optical can virtually extend to 5x equivalent.)
High-end Dolby Digital sound and spectacular HD movie
Not only can the Lumix LX5 record HD movies in AVCHD Lite with quality Dolby Digital sound. (AVCHD almost doubles the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format), but it also has Creator Motion JPEG format (1,280 x 720 pixels). To start shooting, simply press the Motion Picture button.
Panasonic’s acclaimed iA mode can also be used for movies, or you can quickly switch to Creative Movie mode if you want to take control of the shutter speed and aperture yourself.
Enjoy outstanding manual operation and creative expression
With its smooth, intuitive “jog dial” and focus switch handily located on the lens barrel, the Lumix LX5 is a breeze to manually control. When you feel the need to get creative, dynamic customised colour effects are easily achieved in My Colour mode and Film mode. Its big, bright, 460,000-dot high res 3.0 inch LCD screen means you can compose, assess, adjust, choose and experiment while you’re shooting, just like a pro.
If that’s not enough to satisfy your creative needs, take your pick from a wide range of optional accessories including view finders, filters and external flashes.
