Lumix LX5, Panasonic LX3 con mejoras

La Panasonic LX5 trae algunas mejoras, pero no tantas como se esperaban

Por Juan Castromil ,

Finalmente ya sabemos como sera la Panasonic Lumix LX5 y la conclusión es que, más que una evolución, será una LX3 con algunas de las mejoras más demandas. Básicamente estas son un zoom más potente, un sensor con más rango dinámico y vídeo HD en formato AVCHD (y en dos colores)


La nueva cámara se denomina Lumix LX5 en vez de LX4 porque para los japoneses, que son algo supersticiosos, el número 4 (que se pronuncia muy parecido a… la palabra ‘muerte’) trae mala suerte. De lejos, la LX3 y la LX5 casi se podrían confundir ya que su diseño es muy similar y casi todos los cambios son internos (aunque NO integra el rumoreado sensor Micro 4/3). Las mejoras mas importantes son:

  • objetivo con una focal algo más tele. Ahora alcanza los 90 mm equiv manteniendo el 24mm y lo que es mejor el f/2,0-3,3
  • sensor con mayor rango dinámico y mejor respuesta al ruido (6.400 y 12.800 ISO)
  • nuevo procesador de imagen Venus FHD
  • formato AVCHD lite para las grabaciones de vídeo HD con botón dedicado y 60 fps
  • Visor electrónico opcional

Nuestras primeras impresiones confirman una mejora evidente en la calidad de las imágenes, si bien las novedades tal vez no sean suficientes para jubilar nuestra querida LX3. Seguimos echando de menos un modo de creación de panorámicas, vídeo Full HD y un aro multiuso en el objetivo (como la Canon S90). Todas las carácteristicas de la LX5:
