"The more you play, the more you learn"

This multi-purpose digital camera has been designed for beginners, intermediates and advanced photography enthusiasts.
The printable image quality from this camera blew me away. The camera has so much to offer from TIFF and RAW image saving options to digitally enhancing pictures without graphics software. In addition, the MPEG movie recording function enables you to zoom and start recording. Furthermore, the camera is compact, user friendly and comes with a magnificent Leica lens offering you unbelievable optical zoomed photographs.
You can't really go wrong with this camera and Panasonic is a brand you can 9 out 10 times tick the quality box for. Your money will go a long way with this camera.

Manufacturer's product description

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2, successor to the DMC-LX1, has received high acclaim worldwide for its unique 16: 9 wide CCD, plentiful functions, and smart design. The DMC-LX2 inherits the f/2.8 28mm wide angle LEICA DC lens, 4x optical zoom (equivalent to 28mm to 112mm on a 35mm film camera) and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) system in addition to an enhanced CCD capable of 10.2-megapixels and larger 2.8" 16: 9 wide LCD. The DMC-LX2 is unique in that it incorporates triple-"wide" features of 28 mm wide-angle LEICA DC lens, 16: 9 wide CCD and 16: 9 wide LCD. Not only that, the LX2 is further distinguished from other cameras by its full manual controllability with a joystick allowing users to easily enjoy creative shooting. The DMC-LX2 also boasts Venus Engine III high performance image processing LSI to dramatically reduce the noise that challenged the predecessor, realizing image recording at max. ISO 1600 high sensitivity setting at full resolution. The other features that elevate the DMC-LX2 is the incorporation of 13 MB of built-in memory while the battery life is extended up to 300 pictures on one charging, not to let you miss those great spur-of-the-moment shots. A print mode has been added to the mode dial so that you can print the images quickly and bundled software allows users to edit and develop RAW files. The LUMIX DMC-LX2 is like no other compact camera, enabling both high-end amateurs and entry-level users to explore the creativeness that surely enhances the joy of shooting.
