Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3


Everybody wants this camera: the Panasonic Lumix DMC–LX3. Not too long ago, the Ricoh GR and GX serious compacts made it into the bags of discerning enthusiasts. Now here’s a new camera that simply does the job well without the made–for–marketing features of its competitors. With a more than adequate 10 megapixel CCD sensor, the LX3 has a Leica 2.0-2.8 lens with an equivalent focal range of 24-60mm.

I’ve been trying to hard to resist the urge to buy this cam, and for the past few days I’ve been successful. Wish me luck as I continue to avoid another big spend. Now here’s some links to make you think about the Lumix LX3:

And if you’re wondering by now, the Lumix LX3 suggested retail price is USD $499 and it sells here in Manila in the 23-25,000 peso range, not bad at all. Unless of course you’d rather have a Nikon D40 for around 20k.

Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS Philippine price

Wondering what body organs to sell to buy yourself a Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS? ;) The new Canon superzoom reportedly goes for 34,000 pesos at Mayer’s, one of our favorite Hidalgo camera shops. Of course prices vary constantly, along with Mang Ramon’s mood, but you can always call them at 02.7337598 to check. If you can get through, that is.
