Panasonic's second DSLR has some fierce competition, so how well does it put up a fight?....

The Four Thirds system is continuously expanding with the imminent arrival of the Olympus E-3 and this new model, Panasonic's long-awaited follow up to the L1, the Lumix L10. This latest release sees a slight shift in direction for Panasonic, with less traditional handling and a more high-tech digital feel.

What do we mean by that? The original L1 offered traditional styling, with an aperture ring on the Leica lens and a shutter dial on the top-plate - contributing to a unique handling experience in the digital world. The L10 still offers lens-based aperture control as an option, but even a cursory glance over the camera indicates that this is aimed at a very different kind of user.

It also features a set of world-firsts on a DSLR, including Face Detection and a vari-angle live view mode, courtesy of its 10MP LiveMOS sensor. Furthermore it features Intelligent ISO control and compatibility with HD televisions. So let's take a deeper look into the heart of the Panasonic Lumix L10.
