Live view is becoming standard these days with digital SLRs as we notice in this latest offering from Panasonic, the Lumix DMC-L10, a 10.1-megapixel DSLR sporting a 2.5-inch LCD screen that displays the view as it is being taken. This comes in the heels of Nikon’s intro of its D3 and D300 SLRs that also feature a live view on their LCDs.
Cool thing is, the L10â€™s screen can flip out and pivot to make it easy to shoot more creatively or take photos even in challenging angles, handy at ground level, useful for overhead shots.
The Lumix DMC-L10 DSLR is priced at about $1300, including a 14-50mm f/3.8-5.6 image-stabilized Leica lens. The L10â€™s crop factor is 2.0 (it is built around the Four Thirds system) so the included lens actually shoots like a 28-100mm lens on a 35mm SLR.
