Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Automatic white balance modes perform well. Clear screen visible in light, and from multiple angles. High quality included lens performance, except for speeed.
The Cons:Included lens is slow for its size. Default colour settings need a bit of tweaking to produce lifelike results. Viewfinder is darker and smaller than competition.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 is a high-tech DSLR that reflects on the FZ50, but offers a significant number of new features: a 2.5” swivel/tilt LCD monitor, a lighter/smaller kit lens, user interface improvements, a higher resolution of 10.1-megapixels, and the ability to utilize contrast-detect autofocus in Live View mode with the sensor itself.
