The Panasonic Lumix LX3 is a “jack of all trades” camera. Not only does is shoot beautiful-looking pictures, it also does HD video. My photography teacher picked one up last year and I was super impressed with it’s compact size and powerful capabilities. The 24mm wide-angle lens by Leica is one of the clearest I’ve seen on a pocket camera. There’s also a host of ad-ons and accessories for the LX3 making ideal for photographers looking for something a bit more portable. I definitely see one of these in my future.
