Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Camera is a 10 Megapixel compact camera which is lately added to it’s bridge camera segment by the Japanese electronics manufacturer. The camera offers 3.8x optical zoom lens, similar to its predecessor LX5, but this time it is packed with f/1.4 aperture, which is just too perfect for low light shots. We have already seen similar lens in Samsung’s latest launch EX2F camera but what’s unique here is that the Panasonic machine also allows min aperture of f/2.3 at full zoom.
The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 camera price and expected date of release are still kept under wraps.
