I’m more of a Canon guy, but cameras like the new Panasonic Lumix LX5 sound awfully attractive. It may not have the boldest of looks, but this successor to the LX3 improves on the already popular shooter in many ways. Yes, it’s still rocking a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, but most people don’t need a resolution beyond that. Instead, Panasonic has focused on improving image quality, dynamic range, low-light performance, and image processing. The Lumix LX5 has a shiny new F2.0, 24mm Leica lens too that offers up to 3.8x optical zoom. It won’t do video at 1080p, but it is capable of shooting 720p HD movies, showing them off on the new backlit LED screen for “better color reproduction and visibility in sunlight.” Other improvements include more advanced image stabilization, face recognition, ergonomic changes, and a jog wheel. Choose between the white or black version this August for $500.[Gizmodo]
