Equipped with a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens, the new DMC-LC80 provides beautiful images in superior quality in addition to its stylish design and compact body. Thanks to the established Venus Engine LSI, the DMC-LC80 offers highly responsive operation, with a short release time lag, approx. 0.1 second, between the time when the shutter button is pressed and the image is captured, and a reduced shutter interval time. “Mega Burst Consecutive Shooting” also enables rapid, consecutive shots."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/lc80frontback-001.jpg" /><br /><br />The DMC-LC80's unique features seems to include LCD display guide lines to identify the horizontal/vertical reference and a real-time histogram that indicates the exposure status. This camera is an entry level model with 3x zoom and has a 5MP CCD, which is an upgrade from the DMC-LC70. It also provides high speed 2.7 fps continuous shooting (up to 9 standard frames) as well as 320x240 30 fps movie clips.
