This is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digital camera from 2008. Also shown is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 from 2010. The LX3 is an amazing camera and the LX5 builds on that success with double the shutter speed, more focus points, more usable zoom range and a few more minor changes.
These cameras are joys to use. Though a little on the small side for my hands, the controls work well and are logical. Physical buttons and knobs provide easy access to commonly used features.
Image quality is amazing, full stop.
