Product information

For a compact camera that fits into your palm, Panasonic’s LX15 is equipped with an extremely fast lens. Combined with a 1-inch sensor it gives you amazing creative control over your photography. With 4K video you can shoot incredibly detailed movies, while the 4K Photo, Post Focus and Focus Stacking features ensure you capture the perfect high quality still. With direct, intuitive controls and a tiltable monitor for flexibility, the LX15 is a supremely sleek and finely featured premium compact.

Sizeable Sensor
The LX-15 boasts a large sensor for shooting life in stunningly vivid detail. And because the 1-inch, 20.1 megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor captures more light, it helps to produce a rich bokeh effect. Backed up with the Venus Engine processor, the camera achieves maximum ISO12800 (extended ISO25600) to record a high quality image normally beyond the reach of compacts.

Leica Lens
At the heart of all photography is the lens and the LX-15 is equipped with a fast and crystal-clear 24-72mm Leica lens. It lets in more light and copes brilliantly in low lighting environments. An impressively capable lens for such a small camera, it’s perfectly equipped to capture life in all its beauty.

Direct Control
The LX-15 puts you in easy control. An aperture ring gives you direct control over aperture size, while the rear dial and control ring give you intuitive management of shutter speed, zoom and focus. And you can customise settings to handle your preferred shooting options.

Fantastic 4K
With a resolution of 3840 x 2160, 4K Video captures four times as much detail as Full HD, so whether shooting, watching or editing your movies, the level of detail is stunning. With 4K Photo you can select an individual frame from a 30 frame-per-second video sequence, and save it as a single high resolution image. It’s ideal for capturing unmissable fast-moving action and selecting the perfect shot later. Simply shoot, select and save.

Post Focus & Focus Stacking
The Post Focus feature lets you review an image and select the area you’d like to be pin sharp simply by touching it, even after you’ve taken the photo. And with Focus Stacking you can combine multiple focal planes within the same image for perfectly sharp clarity across the whole frame.

Tiltable Touch Screen
The 3 inch, 1040k dot LCD touch screen on the rear of the body angles upwards by 180 degrees. So with that level of flexibility you can take the shot from any angle. And it’s perfect for selfies; as soon as you flip up the monitor, the camera automatically enters optimal selfie mode.
