Panasonic bolsters its position in the digital camera market with the new Lumix LX10
Photographers looking for a versatile and formidable digital camera don’t have to look beyond the new Panasonic Lumix LX10. Touted as the ultimate compact camera, the new digital shooter boasts a newly developed F1.4 high-speed LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens and a large, 1-inch High Sensitivity MOS Sensor with 20.1-megapixel resolution.
The latest addition to the popular LX Series also offers 4K video recording capabilities, which adds to its versatility. Users can also enjoy 4K PHOTO shots with the LX10.
With 4K technology, users can capture the fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps by extracting the best frame from a 4K burst file to save as a photo.

One of the key highlights of the Lumix LX10 is its new LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens. The new lens features a fast F1.4-2.8 aperture (35mm camera equivalent: 24-72mm) with an aperture ring that allows direct, intuitive control of the aperture to take maximum advantage of this high-speed lens. Stunning macro shots with intricate detail can be taken with a minimum working distance of 3 cm.
The 1-inch MOS Sensor also enables high-quality image recording with extraordinary detail. The combination of the High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and a Venus Engine achieves a maximum ISO 12,800 high sensitivity recording with high picture quality that goes beyond the limits of compact digital cameras.
For faster response and higher mobility, the Lumix LX10 boasts a high-speed, high-precision AF with DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, which shortens the focusing time enabling faster and more efficient photo taking.
