Full-Time Live View Redefines Digital SLR Photography

With conventional digital SLR cameras, you never know exactly how the photo is composed until after you shoot. The Lumix 174; DMC-L10 changes all that with full-time Live View. When you look at the LCD screen, you see what the camera sees, making it easy to adjust and compose your shot just the way you want it.

Greater Flexibility with a 2.5" Free-Angle LCD

The camera's 2.5" free-angle LCD gives you even greater flexibility with a screen that rotates 180 176; left and right and 270 176; front and back for shots at both high and low angles. In addition, the auto-focusing area can be chosen from as many as nine points while viewing the LCD before you take the shot so you can focus on your subject with exceptional accuracy. You can also use the LCD to check how any white balance or exposure compensation adjustments affect the shot before you take it, while Film Mode lets you adjust the photo characteristics.

Face Detection Ensures That No One Gets Lost in the Crowd

This function, the first on a digital SLR camera1 and made possible by full-time Live View, recognizes up to 15 faces in the frame and optimizes the focus and exposure settings to capture them clearly and correctly.

No More Blurry Photos

A first in digital SLR cameras1, Intelligent ISO Control prevents motion blur by detecting if the subject is moving and adjusting the ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly. The camera's Leica D lens is also equipped with Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S. optical image stabilization system, which prevents blurring caused by shaky hands and helps you capture sharp, clear, beautiful images even when taking telephoto shots or shooting in dim lighting.

Compact and Lightweight for More Fun, Greater Mobility

Featuring a compact design and weighing just a little over a pound, the DMC-L10 is a camera you can carry around easily and use comfortably. The grip is designed to give you a sure, stable hold, leaving you free to concentrate on the shooting.

World-Class Leica Lens

Panasonic's sophisticated LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-50mm/F3.8-5.6 ASPH. lens unit features 15 lens elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical lenses to lower spherical aberration, and two extra-low dispersion lenses to suppress chromatic aberration. The focal length is equivalent to 28 to 100 mm on a 35mm camera.

Four Thirds ™ Standard Designed Especially for the Digital Camera

Panasonic adopted the Four Thirds ™ standard for the DMC-L10's lens system, which means you can use lenses made by other manufacturers, providing you with an extensive range of interchangeable lenses. Click here to learn more about the Four Thirds ™ Standard.

Dust Reduction System Helps Protect the Inside of the Camera

Every time you turn the camera on, a supersonic wave filter located in front of the image sensor vibrates vertically around 30,000 times a second to create a wave-like motion across the entire filter that shakes away any dust particles that enter the camera. This system even removes particles that would not be loosened by the horizontal movement of other image sensors.
