The Lumix DMC-LX7 Digital Camera (White) by Panasonic brings with it a fully redesigned lens, sensor and image processor for fast performance and gorgeous picture quality.  Starting with the newly developed 24mm Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens, we will see why the LX7 is a cut above the rest in terms of high quality optics in a point and shoot. The LX7's lens is a 3.8x optical zoom lens with a focal length equivalency of 24-90mm. That is a great standard zoom for all your day-to-day shooting but what makes the lens special is its f/1.4 aperture at the wide angle end and f/2.3 at the telephoto end. These are apertures in line with the best available SLR lenses and will provide you with enough light entering your camera to use high shutter speeds and capture sharp images with beautiful gradations even in low light settings.

The LX7 has also adopted a new larger (1/1.7") 10.1MP MOS sensor with an improved S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio that will result in high resolution images with outstanding clarity and rich gradation, even in high contrast situations. The Venus Engine image processor has also been improved, now featuring Intelligent NR (Noise Reduction) which optimizes the NR process by separating parts of the image. It will detect the bright part of an image and localize the noise reduction where it is needed most.  Also, the processor integrates a high speed digital signal to improve continuous shooting rates to 11 frames per second with mechanical shutter and 5 fps in continuous Auto Focus.

The LCD display on the LX7 is a full 3.0" and houses 920,000 dots. Sharpness is ensured, as is wide angle viewing, and with its Intelligent mode, the LCD will automatically adjust its brightness based on the exterior lighting conditions.

The Lumix LX7 also records Full HD Video with a dedicated one-touch button. In addition to shooting video in two separate formats (MPEG-4/H.264 and MP4), the LX7 records sound with Dolby Digital Stereo Creator. This high quality stereo microphone system offers zoom noise reduction and Auto Wind Cut to reduce background noise. Creative functions in the video mode let you adjust shutter speed and aperture to create special effects or simply, to improve your home videos.

Creative and assistive controls are one reason the Panasonic LX series are such great cameras and the LX7 is no different. Sixteen in-camera filters offer a range of creative options including Radial and Smooth Defocus and a new Time Lapse Shot function allows for beautiful series of flowers blooming, cities passing into night or clouds rolling by. Also, the LX7 has a been equipped with an aperture ring, focus lever and rear dial for further image control and Photo Style modes will enhance your images when shooting specific types of scenes and iA (Intelligent Auto) and iA Plus will give you that little bit of help to capture tricky images (Intelligent HDR) or not so tricky (Face Detection). Of course, the Lumix LX7 has complete manual control for advanced shooters to fine tune their shots to be exactly as wanted.

Being a camera that even the pros appreciate means that the LX7 comes with a full line of accessories to improve your shooting in any situation. The camera's hot-shoe allows for the attachment of advanced accessories such as the tilt-shift Live View Finder.  With accessories such as this, its improved sensor, fast lens and host of creative controls, there is very little that the Lumix LX7 cannot perform.  

Optics
The lens is where it all begins with the LX7! With 11 elements, including 9 aspherical surfaces and a dual-sided aspherical ED lens (first for a Lumix), this Leica DC Vario-Summilux lens produces exquisite high resolution images with minimal distortion and a soft-focused background. Nano Surface coating cuts down on reflection as light passes through the lens and its 24mm wide angle offers a huge viewing angle with little distortion. The f/1.4 aperture in wide angle and f/2.3 at telephoto mean that fast shutter speeds are possible even in low light.
Sensor
The Lumix LX7 adopts a new 1/1.7-inch 10.1MP MOS Sensor that features an improved S/N ratio by 1.5 dB compared with its predecessor, which results in high resolution images with stunning clarity in high sensitivity recording and also in low ISO, reproducing rich gradation with wide dynamic range even when the situation is highly contrasted.
Image Processor
The Venus Engine keeps resolution high by optimizing the noise-reduction process. Bright areas in each image are identified and a multi-step NR process is applied to keep even high contrast images smooth. High speed digital signal output means that continuous shooting speeds have improved up to 11 frames per second in full 10MP resolution.
Video
Full HD 1080 60p video recording with Dolby Stereo audio recording with creative video modes to control your images as you see fit.
Intelligent Auto
iA and iA Plus modes allow you to put the more difficult shots into the hands of a master - your LX7 camera. Optical Image Stabilization keeps your images blur-free, AF-Tracking lets you hold focus on moving subjects, Face Recognition perfects your portraits and Motion Deblur lets you adjust the nicely out-of-focus backgrounds. In addition, Intelligent HDR will help you create great shots even when the light and shadows are not cooperating and Intelligent Handheld Night Shot will give you blur-free night shots without flash.
Creative Options and Full Manual Control
Be able to go both ways. In-camera filters and creative options such as Soft Focus, Dynamic Monochrome, Toy Effect and the new Radial Defocus allow you to create stunning images without taking them to your computer first and full manual control allows you to shoot like a pro by controlling the camera to work your own personal magic.
Time Lapse Shot Function
Time Lapse Shot Function is a nice addition the LX7, allowing you to easily create time lapse images of clouds passing, flowers blooming or cities moving. Get creative and try it on your friends changing facial expressions.
Multiple Optional Accessories
The available accessories for the LX7 will bring your shooting to another level and keep your camera functional for years to come. An external flash, an external view finder and multiple filters are all available to turn your camera into a complete system.

    I've owned the LX5 and now the LX7. Don't give this camera a second thought. The Leica lens is crisp clear and the images this baby produces are second to none. The camera is small and very light, easy to take anywhere without feeling like you're lugging around a brick. I am an artist and a professional photographer and I find myself using this camera on a daily basis for absolutely everything apart from actual client work or my own artwork. Shoot in RAW and learn to explore the full potential of this tiny camera. You will not regret this purchase, I guarantee it.

    One detail to remember is that it is not perfect in low light. Anything about 400 ISO will produce color noise that you might not be comfortable with but it is easily reduced when you shoot in RAW. Learn to use your equipment and know its limits and you will find yourself producing beautiful work.

    I thought I'd upgrade from my LX5, but it wasn't worth the change. I have returned the LX7. In low light, there's too much chromo-luminance noise, the photos look "blotchy". The shutter lag is quite long, as well. The LX7 is not improved from the last model.I didn't think the extra f-stop on the LX7 made any difference, since the chip still had the same limitations as my LX5. Which is too much low light noise, and blotchy grain.In addition, Panasonic deicided to change the shoe-mounted digital viewfinder, from their last model. So everyone who paid a couple of [$] for that device. for their LX5, discovered it didn't work on the LX7. (thanks Panasonic, but to me, it would be like changing lens mounts, after you've sold me a bunch of lenses)There's no extension tube, and 18mm lens option, on the new model, something quite usefull on the LX5, so the new camera actually gave me less of an option than I had with their last model. I've had a long run with Lumix cameras, it's time for a change. I returned the LX7. I now use the Sony Cybershot RX100, for high quality "small" camera situations.

          Comments about Lumix DMC-LX7 Digital Camera (Black):

          The small sensor turned me away from this. It was recommended by a char-room fellow, and I bought it. Further investigation revealed that the sensor was quite small (I had been examining a Fujifilm E-X1). I bought a Sony a6000 instead (same size sensor as the Fujifilm), and am happy with it.

                    Camera was purchased specifically for photographing in natural light - parties, evening events, etc. The lens at 1.4 is terrific for this type of use. Other adjustments in the viewfinder/monitor are a snap. I have cameras with more 'bells & whistles' but this one does just what it's meant to do, with ease.

                      I know the LX100 is out, which makes this camera a very good buy. I've been testing it on some general conditions and have been pleased with it's performance. It's a really solid feeling camera and feels substantial even for its small size. Good in low light, which eliminates the flash in a lot of situations. The option of shooting RAW is very nice. The auto everything mode generates pretty generic looking images. and the color is a little flat in this mode. You can get around this with a few manual settings like aperture priority and shooting RAW. The zoom is a little slower than I like, but I don't do a lot of fast zooming so this is not a big issue for me.

                        I do travel photography but was looking for something compact that I could thro in my pocket. Some of the place I travel to are not safe so thousands of dollars in camera equipment that could be stolen is a bad idea. This camera is a great camera for travel when you want to get away from your DSLR. It does well in landscape as well as low light which was very important to me. Great all around camera!

                        The LX7 is no point-and-shoot camera; it is a precision photographic instrument. You have to know what you are doing to use it effectively. As a reward, it will give you back sharp, clear photos taken under difficult lighting conditions. It takes a while to get used to its settings so you can use it quickly and effectively. But according to the effort you put in, it will pay a large dividend. I have traded an impressive zoom ratio for something more in the portrait range because that is what I am interested in: close-up portraits indoors in natural light.The Lumix DMC-LX7 is just what I'd hoped it would be.

                          This is a great small point and shoot that can be used to capture day-to-day candid images as well as scenic views while vacationing. I have several custom modes set up on the camera, and I love the fact that this camera allows you to set minimum shutter speeds. I primarily shoot in raw which allows for a greater depth of change while editing. The built in ND feature is useful as well for capturing longer exposures during the daylight. Takes great low light images as well with its fast f1.4 lens. Overall, this camera exceeded my expectations in terms of the variety (and quality) of shots I was able to capture with such an affordable piece of hardware.

                          There are many manual features to choose from including a suit of 'Artistic' effects. Then there's the 'Time Lapse ' feature which allows you to take a series of photos then stitch them together to show a flower opening, or clouds passing by, etc: The lens is made by Leica, need I say more ?The 'Hand Held Night Time shot' is very useful too. The 'Pan Panorama is excellent.

                            I use this as a mid-point between my LG G3's camera (which is quite nice) and my DLSR. I had the LX-5 and this is a very nice upgrade with many new features, both hardware and software. Many new options on the SCENE and CREATIVE modes, including HDR and time lapse. Quicker and smarter focusing. The faster 1.4 lens and the higher ISO possibilities make for terrific low-light picture taking. The screen has twice the resolution. It has a great solid heft to it without being heavy. Tough to put in your pocket though, unless you're wearing cargo pants. Zoom is limited, but that's not a problem for me. Very well designed and executed piece of equipment.

                            I bought this camera specifically for shooting low light concerts, and i was floored with the results. This thing is razor sharp, has awesome macro, and the wide aperture makes this a low light monster...while all doing for a lot less cash than it's high dollar twin. I use this as a backup to my Ricoh GR, or when i need macro or there is a concert i am going to. There just isn't enough good things to say about it. The zoom is decent if you are fairly close, it is wide enough that the starting focal length pushes you back quite a bit, and only 90mm on the long end is good for most anything, but in low light, even at f/1.8 you should stay wide then crop in post production, you will have a much better image than trying to shoot while zoomed in during low light.

                            I was looking for something smaller than my 5d MK II to carry with me on a daily basis. I found LX7 to be a good fit for that, as it's a very good point and shoot that does the job.

                            I wouldn't say it can replace my DSLR, but really good at what it suppose to do.

                            Comments about Lumix DMC-LX7 Digital Camera (Black):

                            Toting a big D-SLR around is not always convenient nor needed and this Lumix DMC-LX7 is just about perfect to fill the gap. I've just begun scratching the surface with regards using the camera but so far I'm delighted with the quality and the results and small enough to tuck into a pocket or bag.

                            Comments about Lumix DMC-LX7 Digital Camera (Black):

                            I own a Fuji XT-1 with a couple lenses and I am very happy with the equipment, especially after living with Rolleiflexes, Hasselblads, Leicas and Nikons for more than 50 years. The Fuji quality is outstanding and it provides plenty of freedom to create. However, even with a small camera bag, it still feels like one is carrying too much equipment for a day in the streets (you feel it on your shoulder also after a long walk or a hike). Years ago, I had a Lumix LX-3 and still enjoy looking at most of the photos made with that camera. The camera is long gone. Just recently, after considering many options in the "pocketable" market, I decided to purchase a camera that has been available for the past two years, not one that just came to market: the Lumix LX-7. I also purchased the LVF-2 (viewfinder) and an additional battery from B&H. Great quality, easy to maneuver, great software, but must of all, great glass. It's not as quick as other recent products but the zoom range is good, especially the 24mm. If you are looking to photograph action sports, this is not the camera for you.Ordering through B&H was a quick and easy and I highly recommend using them.
