The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 improves on the popular LX1's widely-loved feature set, and is one of the first digital cameras to provide a widescreen LCD. Widescreen, 16:9 aspect ratios are all the rage these days, and digital cameras are no different. With a 28mm wide-angle Leica lens, a 16:9 CCD for capturing those extra-large images, and 16:9 LCD display so nothing is overlooked, the LX2 will offer stunning panoramas and ensure that nobody gets left out of the shot. The LX2's movie mode can also handle 16:9, capturing video in high definition (1280 x 720) resolution (though only at 15 frames per second). Settings are easily switched to allow for typical 4:3 or 3:2 aspects. Despite it's wide format ambitions, the LX2 is still and ultra-compact, and of course, features Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. image stabilization to reduce the shimmy and shake of natural hand movement. Oh, and did we mention its 10.2 megapixel sensor is perhaps the largest ever crammed into such a small camera?
