Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 Camera $269/DMC-ZS8 $169

Amazon has another one of their One Day Deals on one of my favorite camera lines: Panasonic Lumix.

I have mentioned previous camera deals (here and here)

This is not a pocket camera: DMC-LX5 10.1 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD, Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens (Black). The list price is $499, but it usually sells for about $369 (The white version is that price)

This is a more serious photographer’s point & shoot camera than I typically carry around, at an aggressive price point (full details after the jump).


If you want a simple pocket camera, I would suggest the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 (14.1 MP Digital Camera with 16x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD) at $169.  This was a $400 camera a few years ago.


Panasonic Lumix LX5 highlights

• Professional-quality photos and High Definition (HD) video.

• Ultra-bright F2.0 ultra-wide-angle 24mm Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens (twice as bright as a F2.8 lens)

• 24mm wide angle lens offers extraordinarily large viewing space

• Optical zoom is extended to 3.8x (90mm) making the LX5 even more versatile.

• Highly-acclaimed 10.1-megapixel CCD, but it has an expanded dynamic range by increasing the sensitivity and the saturation.
