Panasonic launches its new Lumix 16:9 wide LX series with the introduction of the DMC-LX1, 8.4 MegaPixels 4x optical zoom full manual compact camera. This creative compact incorporates a 8.4 MegaPixels CCD and a high resolution 2.5-inch LCD in its undersized body.

(Optical Image Stabilizer), a key feature Panasonic considers should be standard in all digital still cameras.
