Great IQ from such a small sensor - I never cease to be amazed by the results. Very practical and effective in most situations, particularly when I need to carry less. Lovely to use and a great photographic tool in the right hands.

I was in the market for a new camera and narrowed it down between the Panasonic LX7 and Sony RX100 as I want something pocketable. I went for the LX7 because it has a hot shoe. Yes the Sony RX100 11 has a hot shoe but the price point is too expensive for me. Anyhow, purchased the LX7 ant Metz 24 AF-1 flash (for Oly/Pan) for 349 GBP in total. When the camera arrived the first thing I did was print a hard copy of the camera manual for reference (Many pages!) Spent a few days soaking the info ...

"Super Mini" and I am not talking about skirts here! I have tried many cameras, compact and DSLRs, entry levels and pros... I must say LX7 probably the best for the features and results altogether. I don't have to tell you what's built in this camera, you probably already know all that... and for the results, you will have to check out samples on my websites (I have a few LX7 fan pages in Flickr, FB and WordPress websites) I have tried this camera with its fast recording, portraits using ...

The LX-7 is by far the best designed, best implementation compact camera I have owned in the past 12 years of shooting digitally. It is a great walkaround camera and a nice complement to my larger, heavier Micro 4/3 gear. Unlike the Samsung EX1 I also own, everything is works as I would expect it to. Nicely done, Panasonic!

I wanted a small camera i could always have with me, so after days of deliberating bought this one. It didn't impress me at all so i returned it. Image quality is only good at ISO 80, starting from  iso 200 the quality drops dramatically and at  iso 800 images are no different from those HTC smartphone takes. Under bright sunlight you can take good pictures with it, which makes it a great travel camera, but still...difference in quality this camera produces is not worth the extra coule of ...

I purchased the Lumix LX7 to replace my departed Leica D-Lux 4 (Lumix LX3). The LX7 has far exceeded my expectations. The lens is sharp and fast. The camera shoots raw. Autofocus is very quick and shutter lag is negligible. I do not shoot much video, but it seems rather good for a camera of this size. With prices hovering around $299 (May 17, 2013), this has to be one of the best enthusiast camera bargains around. Adding the electronic viewfinder and filter adapter rounds out this camera as a ...

I owned an LX3 for abot 4 years and everything that I disliked about it has been rectified on the LX7. I have also the new electronic viewfinder which is also a great success. The focusing is very very fast. The 1.4 lens gives excellent sharpness of image at all apertures. I only shoot in RAW so I am able to control any noise in post production, but with a 1.4 lens I find that 90% of the time I am shooting at 80 ISO, so I have no problems. It is a very small camera which produces very good ...

Just bought this camera from digital-rev for £330, and used extensively on a cruise holiday last week. I really like this camera. It is much lighter and smaller than my SLR, which makes it ideal for travel photography. Because of all the clever electronics it is easy to get decent quality snaps, where my lesser Canon ixus would have failed in some way. The ixus was useless with fill-in flash, leaving the subject dark. The DMC-LX7 copes with fill-in flash really well. I took several ...
