my LX3.. the first impressions

Panasonic Lumix LX3

its here.. bought from hong kong (Thanks Aids!) I also ordered Sandisk Extreme 3 8g SDHC.

First impressions:

  • classically designed camera. Rangefinder look. I love it!
  • superb leica summicron lens, contrasty, fast and sharp
  • too many features to play with
  • 16:9 ratio is really awesome
  • impressive ISO performance up to 400. ISO 800 decent
  • hi-res LCD
  • phenomenal HD video
  • lotsa customizable features
  • can be used for strobist. 580ex I and flashwaves RF trigger works!
  • decent 1/2000s flash sync speed (with off shoe flash)
  • 24mm wide angle lens!
  • Quick controls (joystick & 4 way nav buttons)
  • in-camera post production
  • RAW file capaility

The LX3 is a serious point & shoot camera. It wont replace my DSLR’s but it will definitely be with me all the time.
