Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 review

Verdict

While the Panasonic Lumix L10 is a capable, attractive and often innovative model, it also seems to me to be a somewhat schizophrenic entity. It's packed with entry-level features, such as the low burst rate, 1/4000sec top shutter speed, the scene modes and PC-free operation, yet also has that impressive LCD screen that enthusiasts will love. On top of all that it's in a price bracket that suggests it wants to compete with the Canon EOS 40D or Sony Alpha 700, which, to be frank, it doesn't. If the price comes down, then the L10 will be a much more attractive option, but as it stands at the moment, I wouldn't pay the extra price for the flip-out LCD screen on its own.
