The DMC-LX3 puts the joy of creating beautiful, richly expressive images into every photographer's hands. Leading the list of features is a large, developed, ultra-sensitive CCD. And rather than simply maximizing the pixel count as other cameras do, the DMC-LX3 makes generous use of its 10.1 megapixels in this 1/1.63-inch CCD. Each pixel is around 45% larger than those in ordinary 10-megapixel cameras. This boosts both sensitivity and saturation by around 40% each compared to standard models. Its predecessor, the DMC-LX2, also featured a large, 1/1.65-inch CCD, but in comparison, the DMC-LX3 offers around 20% greater sensitivity and around 15% higher saturation performance than even the DMC-LX2 by maximizing the size of the photodiode in each photo cell. These CCD improvements also minimize noise generation in the DMC-LX3, resulting in a 1.5 dB increase in the S/N ratio compared with the DMC-LX2. The DMC-LX3 is equipped with a 24-60mm f/2.0–2.8 Leica DC VArio-Summicron lens. In order to meet stringent Leica performance standards while offering a 24mm ultra-wide-angle setting and a large F2.0 aperture that nearly doubles the brightness of even a "bright" F2.8 lens, the lens system employs 8 lens elements in 6 groups, including 4 aspherical lenses. This provides superb resolution while minimizing distortion and artifacts such as chromatic aberration, ghosting and flaring. Minimize
