Panasonic's new high-end LX3 point-and-shoot totally bows out of the megapixel war, keeping the same 10-megapixel resolution as its LX2 predecessor for a 40 percent bump in sensitivity and 35 percent greater saturation, plus it can shoot up to 3200 ISO in full res, or 6400 at a reduced one. As a semi-pro point-and-shoot, it has an F2.0 2.5x 24mm ultra-wide angle lens, full manual controls and RAW output, though it still has more consumer-y stuff like Intelligent Scene Selector and HD video recording. Out in August for $499.
