Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 DSLR Camera Review
Some of the pro, cons, and comments from various DSLR Camera reviews of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 include.
Pros: LCD that has live view and that can swivel. Face detection. Image stabilization. Hardware based dust removal system. Stylish design. Three custom memory registers which will restore frequently used camera settings. Includes swiveling LCD that comes with live-view capabilities. 3 AF points and 9 AF areas in live-view mode.
Cons: A bit more expensive. Dynamic range not as high as other, similar SLRs. Bulb mode is maximized at 8 minutes. Weak low light performance.
Comments : Reviews vary on the Panasonic Lumix. Overall, it has a high image quality (except in low light), a stylish design, and the swivel based LCD is neat. But it is more expensive, and the consensus seems to be this DSLR camera is not worth the higher price. This model compares most closely to the Olympus' Evolt E-510.

Additional Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 review comments :
-Overall our reviews show that the Panasonic Lumix L10 is easy to use and works very well for the beginner that this DSLR camera is aimed at. The biggest issue with the Lumix L10 is the high price. You can usually get the Nikon D80 for a cheaper price, and we feel the D80 is a better camera. If the Lumix L10 was a couple hundred dollars cheaper it would be a clear winner.
-The Panasonic produces good images. However, when taking into consideration the higher price and its features, it doesn’t stack up to the competitors. It does come with Live View, and reviews show that the Panasonic’s DMC-L10 image quality is really good. The menu navigation is a little cumbersome and uninspiring. For any serious photographers, the lack of an aperture stop-down button and white-balance bracketing will make it a hard sell.
A first in digital SLR cameras, this DSLR has an Intelligent ISO Control that helps prevents motion blur by detecting if the subject is moving and, if so, adjusting the shutter speed accordingly and ISO setting in an attempt to improve quality. This system has received positive reviews.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 2.5" free-angle LCD gives the photographer even greater flexibility with a screen that rotates 180° left and right as well as rotates 270° front and back for shots at both low and high angles.
