DIWA AwardsPanasonic LX3 compact camera receives DIWA Award : The DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association), a world-wide organisation of collaborating websites, announces a DIWA Gold Award to the enhanced Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX3. DIWA Awards are based on test results obtained during extensive testing in the DIWA Labs, as well as on more than 200 different criteria carried out by DIWA members. Returning to the essence of photography that is what Panasonic aims for with the LUMIX DMC-LX3; taking impressive pictures, both literally and figuratively. This super-compact camera with its powerful wide-angle Leica zoom lens was developed for demanding photographers, pursuing optimum image quality and premium precision.

Panasonic compact camera : LUMIX DMC-LX3
The Panasonic LUMIX LX3 has concentrated high image quality, intuitive users ease and unlimited creative possibilities in a remarkably small body, making the LX3 a unique digital compact camera for the serious photo enthusiast. The centre of attention in the 10 Megapixel LUMIX DMC-LX3 is the ground-breaking 2.5x Leica DC VARIO SUMMICRON zoom lens, not only because of its extraordinary wide angle capabilities, but also for its f/2.0-2.8 lens speed. Add to this a proven MEGA O.I.S optical image stabiliser and 1 cm macro capability. The trusted “intelligent Auto” setting will deliver awesome snapshots, but the LX3 also permits full manual operation for photographers who wish to be in charge, in RAW or JPEG, and in three selectable aspect ratios. For action and sports, the Panasonic LX3 compact camera can shoot 2.5 frames per second continuously, also with an option of capturing High Definition movies.

DIWA Labs camera test conclusion Kai Thon
According to Kai Thon: “The Panasonic LX3 is by far the most powerful compact camera available, even when compared to much larger cameras. Despite its record-breaking 24mm wide angle zoom and f/2.0-2.8 lens speed, lens performance is outstanding. Like most 10 MP compacts, image noise is evident at high sensitivities, but that’s about the only weakness disturbing high overall image quality. Although the Panasonic Lumix LX3 camera is primarily targeted experienced users, no photographer should be surprised to find themselves beaten by the camera’s amazing “iA” shooting mode. It’s breathtaking, and you won’t believe it till you’ve seen it!”
