Manufacturer’s Description

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.

The lens unit is comprised of 4x optical zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens and renders superb picture quality. Like other Lumix cameras, what distinguishes the DMC-LX1 from the rest is MEGA O.I.S.
