Panasonic DMC-L10

Panasonic had previosuly said that they wanted to seriously join the croud of camera manufacturers with a medium- to high-end Digital SLR. But up to now they did not disclose much.

Panasonic DMC-L10 Digital Single Lens Reflex

But now, there is more to taste it: a preview of the Panasonic DMC-L10 at DPreview, an analysis at and a Panasonic Press Release at Photography Blog.

To my eyes, the most interesting or notable features are:

  • Orientable 2.5″ LiveView rear LCD display (the most flexible of D-SLR rear displays)
  • 10.1-Megapixel Live MOS Sensor in Four-Thirds (4/3) form factor (compatible with the wealth of 4/3 lenses)
  • Supersonic Wave dust-cleaning for the sensor (this technology is expected to provide the best-in-class dust removal as proven by Olympus)
  • Image stabilisation (Mega O.I.S.) included in the lenses (as for the standard LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-50mm/F3.8-5.6)

You can bet that this camera will be helping a lot of point-and-shoot compact camera users to move to D-SLR level because of the right blend of ease-of-use and high-end performance.

  1. Thanks to Chasseur d’Images, we learn that the L10 will not be available before November 2007 (like the Nikon D300, by the way) and the price should be a steep 1300€ with the Leica stabilized zoom.
