Today we bring you the World’s first online review of the highly-anticipated Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 compact camera. The LX3 is primarily targeted at the serious photographer looking for a backup to their DSLR, or maybe even as their main camera. A full range of creative shooting modes, RAW mode, fast and wide f/2.0, 24mm lens, high-res 3 inch LCD screen and an ISO range of 80-3200 are all present and correct. Panasonic haven’t forgotten the novice user either, with a wealth of scene modes and the highly effective Intelligent Auto mode on offer if you just want to point-and-shoot. Retailing at £399 / $499, the LX3 is a premium camera that comes with a premium price-tag – Mark Goldstein find out if it’s worth investing in.
