Panasonic updates Lumix line with five models

Creative compact, yes indeedie

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Five Panasonic cameras make their debut today - the links to all the specs are below.

But the pick of the bunch for enthusiasts is probably the DMC LX5, a so called creative, or premium, compact.

DMC LX5

Getting creative with compacts

Any roads, this is the one that Panasonic is pushing hard and this is what the specialist camera sites are picking up on, here and here.

The LX5 camera is an upgrade of the LX3 and is pitched against the Canon Powershot G11 compact. The 10.1mp model features an improved, ultra-wide angle Leica, lens, a bigger sensor, better performance in dim light - and AVCHD movie recording. It's supposed to be easier to hold than its LX3 predecessor.

DP Review has already got its mitts on the LX5 and has posted a sample gallery.
