Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7K

10.1 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Optical Zoom  9.5/10


Panasonic DMC-LX7K
With 10.1 MP, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7K compact digital camera produces superbly sharp photos. You are going to see minimal noise and/or blurriness all sorts of photographs. We liked the really fast f/1.4 Leica lens for low light photography. That also lets you create a great deal of depth in images with a very shallow depth of field. All the special features it offers include full HD video recording, 9 frames per second shooting, light speed auto focus, intelligent digital zoom, and a host of shooting presets. It really doesn’t take long to figure out all the controls and menus once you being to experiment. The rechargeable battery has a long life as well. You can also feel confident using the Auto mode to achieve the best settings. This way you’ll know it will take great shots even when you’re not sure how to set it yourself. For around $300, it’s an impressive, sleek camera.
