Panasonic DMC-LX1 point and shoot

Panasonic DMC-LX1 point and shoot – ok, what’s the word on this camera? anyone use one? seems pretty dope, but i’ve been fooled by the panasonic/leica combo before. appreciate any tried and tested opinions.

Goes down hill after 80 iso, useless in low light situations but a great little cam in daylight in raw mode

Since purchasing the camera in February I’ve been very pleased with the results. Small, compact, plenty of manual features, strong build and very good quality images. Drawbacks… none that I’ve encoutered.

See below link for a sample of images that I’ve taken.

Hey J, you might consider the Canon G10. One of my students got it, it’s pretty nice in many ways. And of course, you know I love my little Ricoh GR Digital II.

LX1 is an old model, I think LX2 and LX3 are current. LX3 lens goes wide to 24mm equivalent, the widest angle lens on a point&shoot; it’s also the fastest lens on such a camera (2.0 – 2.8). Try this detailed comparative review: http://www.bythom.com/compactchallenge.htm. Thom’s site is a good reference for Nikons, but this review covers the Canon G10, Lumix LX3, and Nikon P6000. The upshot is none of the cameras with tiny sensors can do much good at higher ISOs. The word is the LX3 is identical except for branding to the Leica D-Lux 4 (which costs $300 more), but I’d like to know if there’s any substantive differences at all, like different menus, filter over the sensor, anything.

The LX3 seems better than the G10 (micro contrast very good, sharper image), you can also shoot in RAW,
take a look at this http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicdmclx3/

I can’t wait to have one!

My work has bought a G10 for underwater photography at the same time that I got a LX3 for myself. I am shooting both and both are very good. I like LX3 more after three days with both cameras. With a external viewfinder mounted its almost zen like. The G10 looks better on paper but I like the LX3.
