As the predecessor LX3 had became an instant hit amongst fan of point-and-shoot cameras, the releases of its successor -- LX5, is expected to make a scene of panic buying.
The new version uses the same 10-megapixel sensor, but has been improved in its dynamic range and low light performance.
It comes with a new f2.0, Leica lens with a longer reach and shoots 720p HD video. The quality of the pics or vids are also complimented with the new screen that uses a high colour rendering index backlight LED for better colour reproduction and visibility.
Other improvements on the LX5 includes advanced image stabilization, creative movie mode, face recognition, an added jog wheel as well as a new white colour option.
