The Panasonic LX3 is the most prised digital compact camera…but not for long time? Samsung is becoming really aggressive in the digital photography market. They have nice APSC cameras, the first NX camera should be released soon and I bet next year they will go fullframe.
And on July 7th they are read to announce a new compact camera, the HZ30W. Why should the camera be a strong LX3 competitor?
A fairly bigger sensor than most compact cameras, nice optical range (we do not know the aperture) and Oled screen.
Here the specs revealed by photorumors.com
* Design like HZ series
* 1/1.8â€³ CMOS sensor instead of a CCD 1/2.33â€³ (10mx?)
* ISO 100-3200
* Video Full HD
* 5X optical zoom (24-120mm) with ring zoom
* 3â€³ AMOLED
* RAW files
* It will call WB700 in Europe
