Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Camera, HD 1080p, 10.1MP, 3.8x Optical Zoom, 3" LCD Screen, Black

Product information

The compact Panasonic LX7 digital camera looks amazing and performs even better. Its powerful 10.1 megapixel sensor captures richer detail in every shot, and with clever manual controls you can get more creative. Whether you’re a seasoned snapper or prefer a more casual approach - a whole suite of features from optical image stabilisation, to face recognition and scene selection work to make all of your pictures shine.

Key features:

  • The DMC-LX7 is equipped with a 24mm ultra wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX lens featuring outstanding F1.4 brightness at wide-end and F2.3 at tele-end. The extraordinarily rich amount of light allows not only using higher shutter speed for blur-free images in lower light situation, but also giving impressive expression by reproducing exquisite gradation and mellow defocus. The Nano Surface Coating is applied to minimise ghost and flaring.

  • This camera records full HD 1080p videos in smooth 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL) in AVCHD Progressive format. The videos come with the high-quality stereo sound of Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator. The DMC-LX7 can also record high-speed videos at 120 fps (NTSC) / 100 fps (PAL) in HD (1,280 x 720) in MP4 format. You can capture scenes that can't be seen with the naked eye, and play them back in dramatic slow motion.

  • Get every shot just the way you want it. Full manual control allows you to get hands on with an adjustable aperture ring, internal ND filter and focus lever.
  • The DMC-LX7 adopts a new 1/1.7-inch 10.1-megapixel MOS Sensor. The result is a high resolution image with stunning clarity not only in high sensitivity recording but also in low ISO, reproducing rich gradation with the wide dynamic range even when the situation is highly contrasted. Intelligent Noise Reduction and Multi-process Noise Reduction systems are equipped to reduce noise and render dramatically clear images.

  • Creative Control offers 16 artistic effects, including 2 exclusive effects - Radial Defocus and Smooth Defocus. The Radial Defocus adds defocus effect radially from the light source while the Smooth Defocus makes the defocus even smoother. Plus, with Time Lapse Shot, you can get a record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The camera automatically starts recording once the start time, the interval and the number of picture to shoot are set.

  • In Intelligent Auto (iA) mode, advanced detection functions work automatically to optimise your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful photos every time. iA mode includes Power O.I.S. to identify hand-shake and Face Detection to pick out faces in the frame.

Q & As


Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Camera, HD 1080p, 10.1MP, 3.8x Optical Zoom, 3" LCD Screen, Black 5 5 2 2
The perfect compact camera I wanted a compact camera to take on holiday that was light and produced high quality pictures and video. I already own the Lumix G3 and this complements it perfectly. Relatively easy to slip into the pocket and always there to capture the moment. Super fast f1.4 at 4.7mm and only f2.3 at 17.7mm. Has neutral density feature and programmable minimum shutter speed . I like to take pictures at concerts and the f1.4 lens means not pushing the iso speed too far yet maintaining a a decent shutter speed. A great little camera. Pity the optional viewfinder is eyewateringly expensive. 24 March 2013
Perfect Panasonic There are a few cameras on the market that are as good as this LX what makes this one special is its lens, you can put all the latest technology in a camera but it’s the lens that makes the biggest difference to the quality of the image. 20 October 2012
