Awards 2010 – Best advanced compact 2010
Panasonic Lumix LX5
The advanced compact category was one of the most hotly contested in this year’s awards. The need for the photographer to have all the functionality of their DSLR without the bulk is ably met by nearly every manufacturer. This year, however, one camera stood head and shoulders above the rest, and has resulted in a compact double for Panasonic. The Lumix LX5 exudes quality in both design and performance, and with a stunning specification to match, few would argue with the award of the advanced compact camera of the year.
