So while a quarter of the Malaysian population queued up for the successful Maxis iPhone 4 launch at Gardens (reputated to have 3000+ buyers over 3 hours) I and the missus had a quiet night with two of our new babies that we took home tonight… One of which I will share soon, and the other… her name is the Lumix LX5. And boy does she look oh so beautiful!
As I stared at the box, I still couldn't believe that I was going to have her for free, courtesy of Panasonic Malaysia of course 😛 Well, technically it's a one year loan until the next latest range of cameras comes along, but still… considered la 😉
When you open the box you get the usuals: a software CD, the warranty paper and of course, the user guide. Don't underestimate the user guide, you'll never know if you missed certain features that would have otherwise made your camera the best you ever had!
Within the box therein lies the accessories that came together with the Lumix LX5, tucked neatly at the right hand corner. This includes: a battery charger, a two and three pin head for the charger, a stylish Lumix strap and the RGB wires. There's also this mini-strap so that the cap will never be separated from the camera.
And finally… the unwrapping of the camera herself. Welcome Lumix LX5, to the world of the living! Hence forth you will be used for all occasions, because you're the only best thing that ever fitted into my pockets a few generations ago… the difference? You're a powerhouse to be beckon with this time, hopefully a better choice then the Canon S90 too 😛
Her screen may just be 3-inches, typical of most cameras of this range… but you can really define the images as if you were looking at it at that current moment. Vivid stuff, for real. Also it looks like you can mount an external flash there, currently protected by a snapping device, giving it a pretty sturdy look. They've also removed the joystick and replaced it with a dial. Gotta have to get used to that :/
On the side angle, you should note that again, it fits perfectly into your pockets apart from the barrel who might attract certain looks for girls in your vicinity 😛 Note some of the features of the LX5 too, esp on the Leica DC lens, reputed to be one of the best lenses in the world. No joke, that 😉
Bird-eye view shows you full manual control over everything. Looking gorgeous baby, looking gorgeous. How much?
The Lumix LX5, what do you think of it?
Arranging everything that was inside, this is what you should get as a full set. Love the Lumix strap!
Lumix, a world beyong vivid. I'm proud to say that I'm a thorough Lumix advocate, you'll never go wrong with one 🙂
RRP: RM1,800. I’ve got a contact that could give you RM1.5k+ so let me know 😉
