Panasonic is introducing the Lumix DMC-LX3, the long-awaited follow-up to the Lumix LX2 of high-end, compact digital still cameras.

The Panasonic Lumix LX3 features a new 1/1.63-inch CCD with 10.1MP resolution. Rather than cramming in the maximum number of pixels possible, it limited the LX3's 1/1.63-inch CCD to 10.1 megapixels. The result is a CCD that provides a generous amount of space for each pixel while offering superb sensitivity and a wide dynamic range made possible by maximizing the size of the photodiode.
Other features of the Lumix LX3 include 24mm ultra-wide-angle* LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens, Panasonic Venus Engine IV, 3.0-inch large LCD, multiple-exposure function, Film mode with 6 color types and 3 types of monochrome, and up to ISO 3200 sensitivity.

One key advancement over previous models is the LX3's expandability. Mounting the optional Wide Conversion Lens brings the maximum wide angle all the way to an incredible 18mm. Other optional equipment such as the ND Filter and new PL Filter** also broaden image-creating possibilities. The high-end aluminum External Optical Viewfinder provides bright, clear viewing without wearing down the battery. And the optional GN22 Compact Flash mounts to the hot shoe newly added to the LX3. These and other accessories let users build around the LX3 to create a powerful, versatile camera system that can take them as far into photography as they want to go.

Measurements of the LX3 are 108.7 x 59.5 x 27.1 mm. No word on pricing release date yet on the LX3 available.
Via the Panasonic site. Panasonic also announced today the Lumix FX37, DMC-FZ28 and Lumix FX150.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
