I’m asked all the time which camera I use to make my videos for projects like Kitchen Table Talks, or my many book reviews. Well, here it is, the Panasonic DMC-LX3 (amazon affiliate link). It is my most favorite point and shoot camera that I’ve ever owned. What I like most about it is that it’s small and fits in my jacket or pants pocket quiet easily.
It takes SD memory and has a rechargeable battery pack. It shoots in standard size (4:3), widescreen (16:9), and even 3:2 (not sure what that’s called). I also quite like the fact that it shoots snaps really easily with the autofocus features but that it also makes for really great video quality in high definition.
I’ve had it sense September 2009 and it’s been my favorite camera and video rig to date. Obviously, it doesn’t have an external mic so it’s not like it’s *super* versatile, but it’s served me quite well.
