Panasonic LX-3 Digital Camera Review

Chris Hardwick drops by to get intimate with the Panasonic LX-3 Digital Camera, and tell us whether or not it's worth getting to know.

What You Need to Know

  • These types of cameras are designed to look professional and this one does the best job at it
  • It's bulkier than the Nikon Blair and Olivia showed on Monday, so it's not exactly for your pocket
  • Overall, though, its form factor is very cool
  • All the buttons on the back are a little crowded and the menu navigation isn't the sleekest, but there are so many different options that you'll need every one of them
  • You can customize your own manual settings and save them to the C1 or C2 modes on the dial
  • The wide angle 24 millimeter lens and large aperture give you a lot of flexibility when it comes to finding the perfect shot, but the zoom is pretty small at 2.5x
  • Of course there's the intelligent auto mode for when you just want a good picture
  • These are some of the most natural pictures we've seen; they weren't over exposed or too bright
  • There was some grain present in ISO 800 or 1600, but it was subtle and easily overlooked
  • Low light with no flash wasn't as blurry as the Nikon on Monday
  • The image quality and practical design are an excellent combination, but you may need some photography experience to make full use of the features
