Panasonic has released yet another camera today which comes with the name of Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7. This new device is the successor of the popular LX5 and consists of mainly the same features barring a few decent upgradations and interesting features.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 comes with Leica Optics which is one feature that makes this device impressive and powerful. Apart from this feature, the lens has been made of Nano-crystal coating which enables users to reduce and minimise the flare and the ghosting which is sometimes caused. Another highlight specification of DMC-LX7 is the fact that is supports a minimum aperture of f/1.4 which shoots upto f/2.3 when zoomed.
This device sports a 1/1.7” sensor which 10MP pixel count and is equipped with a CMOS sensor which transfers all the image data to the Venus Engine VII which is the processing unit of DMC-LX7. One major change that we observe in this camera as compared to the LX5 device is the fact that the flash range has been extended from 7.2 m to 8.2 m. Also the mic has been changed from mono to stereo for better audio effects in videos. The availability and the price are still under the wraps.
