The electronic company of Panasonic has been one of the most diversified and technology driven corporations of all times. Beginning its establishment from Japan in 1918, the corporation has now spread its subsidiaries all across the world developing a firm position for itself in the local and global markets of all kinds. The enterprise has gone through numerous outbreaks and evolutions in its tenure of hundred years of existence and acquiring other companies like Sanyo and the patents from Pioneer to ensure the company’s stability for all times to come. Panasonic has been one of the sole leading market innovators in the camera and its accessory industry for more than a decade now.
The DMC Series:
Panasonic has been manufacturing compact digital cameras since the start of the 21st century under the banner of LUMIX much of which the designs are innovated by the German optical engineers but are assembled in Japan. The DMC series is the first series of compact digital cameras Panasonic launched under the banner of LUMIX and has been doing ever since. The later models of cameras were also added to the DMC series but with different model names. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX3 is one such high-end point and shoot camera released in the late 2008 which in order became the successor of the older model of LX2.
Launch of DMC-LX3:
The all new LUMIX DMC-LX3 is has a 3 inch wide pure color LCD II also known as TFT and weighs just 265g. The LX3 features a high-sensitivity 10.1 Megapixel with a Venus Engine providing upto a maximum resolution of ISO3200. It has a 24mm wide angle Lens with a 2,5x Optical zoom. Intelligent Auto Mode has also been introduced for providing a much faster automatic focus over the images.
Currently, the market of the LX3 ha declined to its various last stages due to the model becoming a predecessor to many other new models featured with many new and distinct qualities. The arrival of Smartphones has left compact digital cameras in utter confusion. The sales and the market share has been declining ever since.
