About Panasonic Lumix
The Lumix line of digital cameras is one that consists of several compact point and shoot type devices to digital SLR ones. Besides the very common Nikon, Canon and Sony brands, Lumix also happens to have a small share in the worldwide market.
History of Panasonic Lumix
The Lumix series was introduced in 2001, with the release of two compact digital cameras, namely the DMC-LC5 and the DMC-F7. Since then, the Japanese company has added numerous lineups, both SLR and compact, to the series and continue to do so today.
Presently, some of the available lineups in the Lumix series are DMC – FX, FZ, LX, LZ, SZ, TS/ZS, G, GF, GM, GX, and GH.
Popularity in India
Panasonic, despite being a great camera brand along with the likes of Nikon, Canon, Sony and more, do not have that stronghold of the market. This is mainly due to its marketing policy which isn’t really very aggressive. There are plenty of people who are largely unaware of Panasonic cameras.
The Lumix brand, as a result of this, has not benefitted well in India. However, there are still found rarely and some people prefer to use the Lumix cameras.
Design of Panasonic Lumix
The Lumix series essentially consists of compact, as well as point and shoot cameras. The construction is metal alloy or even plastic for the less expensive models. They are generally lightweight and apt for carrying purposes. The point and shoot models are certainly lighter than the compacts alone.
When it comes to the design, Lumix cameras follow the usual norms of design. The front portion has the camera lens, which is mostly a Leica lens, along with a built-in flash. The back comprises of the LCD panel (tilt able in some), along with operating buttons. Buttons are also present on the top. The place of batteries and storage cards are at the side.
Lumix cameras largely come in trendy color options. Some of the cameras also have a rugged outlook, mainly those used for shooting in difficult weather conditions.
Features of Panasonic Lumix
Like all camera brands, Lumix also follows a naming system for classifying its cameras. Firstly, the categorization happens into point-and-shoot and compact camera systems.
The point and shoot range starts with the LS line, which makes up the cheapest models. This is followed by the slightly higher LZ and high-end LX/LF lineups. The TZ lineup offers point and shoot cameras with great zooming capabilities. The SZ cameras are ultrazoom cameras and the FT line has cameras that are typically for rough outdoor usage.
The G, GX, GM, GF and GH series are mirrorless compact camera systems. The FX and FZ series make up the digital SLR line, with certain models being bridge cameras.
The Lumix lineup makes use of Panasonic’s Venus Engine for image processing and offers image resolution up to 21 MP. The ISO range varies between models. Optical zooming capabilities up to 30x can be found. In addition, these cameras also support 1080p recording feature.
Connectivity options offered are numerous and have gradually increased over the years. These days, many of the Lumix models have Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC functionalities. Other than these, you can expect the regular USB, audio/video and HDMI connectivity options.
Regular features, such as image stabilization, panorama mode, smile detection, and more are offered. Panasonic also has launched the world’s first communication oriented camera that runs on the Android OS and is called the Lumix CM1.
Lumix cameras support SD, SDXC, SDHC storage cards and are powered by AA/Li-Ion batteries.
