  1. Panasonic LS85 review by Tim Moynihan, — “In our lab jury evaluations, the Lumix DMC-LS85 earned an overall image quality rating of Good. Color accuracy and low levels of distortion were its strong suits, but its images weren’t as sharp as those from much of the competition”. Rating score: 3.5 / 5.
  2. Panny LS85 preview at The Imaging Resource — “As well as JPEG still images, the Panasonic LS85 can capture movies with sound at up to 848 x 480 pixel resolution or below, although the compression used is the older QuickTime Motion JPEG type. Movies are captured at 30 frames per second with audio”.


  1. Memory storage — SDHC.
  2. Power — two standard AA batteries. IMEDION or Sanyo Eneloop NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries are your best bet, as they retain the charge for a very long period of time. Purchase additional backup batteries so that your LS85 continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.
