Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 Point and Shoot Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 Point and Shoot camera possesses a 1/1.7-inch sized 10 megapixels MOS sensor that has been designed to deliver high quality images with amazing clarity and use of wide dynamic range. To keep the noise at a minimum level, there is intelligent noise reduction feature along with multi-process noise reduction system. The lens used here is Leica DC Vario-Summilix f/1.4 having 3.8x optical zoom. In 35mm terms, the equivalent focal length is from 24mm to 90mm. To lessen ghosting and flare of lens, there is the presence of Nano surface coating. Pictures taken by LX7 come with excellent color reproduction wherein, the portrait shots have brilliant skin tones with slight hint of red eye when shooting with flash. The high dynamic range mode works excellent for retaining detail in the region where there are shadows. Coming to the white balance performance, under both light conditions, incandescent and fluorescent, the AWB preset works very well.

There is a slight orange cast in the image and there is no fluorescent preset that can be used. The same is the case with almost all Panasonic cameras, yet overall, the AWB performance is impressive. There are a number of styles for pictures that can be used when you are shooting with modes such as shutter priority, aperture priority and manual. Creative control modes can be used only as independent modes wherein, the level of effect can be increased or decreased. Many features of a DSLR have been packed into the compact body of this camera. If you can spend well and are not bothered by small zoom amount, you can readily opt for this camera, for it is serious and will get you good results. At full resolution, you can shoot at 11fps. The battery life is excellent. Noise is low up to ISO3200 and full manual controls can be availed with RAW file shooting. Overall, the camera is a good bargain for experienced shutterbugs.

Design and Build Quality

Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 Point and Shoot camera comes with a good rubber grip at its front side. You can attach the lens cap with a strap loop to make sure that you don't lose the cap.

Lens and Image Stabilization

There is nano surface coating that cuts down on ghosting and flare. As far as the lens performance is concerned, the detail is fair enough at both ends and purple fringing is minimum.
