The Light Speed AF helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities. You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes or animals.
The 10.1-megapixel MOS sensor lets the DMC-LX7 shoot 11 fps in full resolution with mechanical shutter. You can take a series of shots, then choose the ones you like the best and delete the rest.
The focus lever serves to activate the variable AF area. During MF operation, it changes to a handy One-shot AF to provide initial focusing. During playback, this function gives you one-touch zoom playback of subjects in focus.
With the 1-area AF, the position of the AF area can be freely moved. The AF frame size can also be selected from among Spot, Normal, L, and XL.
In the manual focus mode, not only the focus distance but also the DOF (depth of field) according to the zoom range and aperture is displayed.
In addition, an MF Assist function enlarges the image to make focusing easier.
Ideal for taking dynamic, intricate close-ups of flowers and insects, this feature is also great for rendering artwork and handicrafts in spectacular details and rich expression.
