Panasonic 35mm Camera Solutions

Panasonic Logo

Panasonic uses the Lumix name on all of it's digital cameras, which include point & shoot versions to DSLRs. A large number of Lumix models use lenses engineered by Leica German optical designers although they are put together in Japan, several are relabeled as Leica model cameras with cosmetically different styling. Leica previously had a comparable relationship with Minolta, where later version Leica SLRs (and a few 35mm point & shoot cameras) were based strongly on Minolta camera bodies.

A majority of Lumix cameras use various versions of the Venus Panasonic Engine to process the digital images; later versions had a II, III, IV, HD (2008), V (2009), and VI, HD II (2010) after it.

Panasonic manufactures every Leica branded digital point & shoot cameras and are made in Japan, although they do not include film cameras, and they exclude the Leica M8 and Leica digital M9 rangefinder cameras, nor the Modul R digital camera back that fits the Leica R9 SLR film camera.  Feb 10, 2011 ✓
