I’ve been looking out for a little range-finder style camera to substitute for Elektra during those times when discretion is required. After comparing the Canon G9, the Fujifilm F100FD, the Ricoh GX200, and most recently, the Lumix LX3, I finally decided on the latter.
The LX3 comes with comprehensive manual controls and a fast, ultrawide F2.0-F2.8 24-60mm (35mm equivalent) Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens. Images are captured on a 1/1.63-inch CCD sensor sporting 10.1 million effective pixels.
A solid camera perfect for those official functions or discrete food reviews, or even for going walkabout. Here are some shots from my gerai ramadhan walkabout earlier today. Panasonic have made some bold claims about the LX3, stating that it offers “the highest image quality in compact camera history”. I’m beginning to agree 🙂
