Amazingly capable & creative compact camera

homeworld, epinions.com
1 May 2008
  • Summary: Overall image quality doesn't win the prize here, but the unprecedented level of control and widescreen features in a compact blow away the field.
  • Pros: "Wide" in every way; flexible use of sensor and aspect ratios; Leica lens is fantastic.
  • Cons: Noisy images at full resolution; not for large hands; less-common Micro-USB connector.

"Great point & shoot with tons of options; almost too many..."

fpmstudio, CNET
14 February 2008
  • Pros: Tons of optinons, beautiful daytime landscape and macro shots, manual options for shutterspeed, F-stop, ISO, focus, etc.
  • Cons: Auto ISO mode will create grainier pictures in low light, due to the automatic adjustment to a higher sensitivity

good compromise for the price

Andrew Cooke, Amazon
7 December 2007
  • Summary: i was looking for an easy to carry camera with manual/slr features. so the choice was between this, the canon m9, ricoh capilo gx100, or nikon p5100. since i wanted as wide an angle lens as possible, but had limited funds, i went with the lx2 (the ricoh goes to 24mm equiv but is significantly more expensive). my main concern was that, compare to the others, i was losing out in getting a much less "professional" camera with poorest image quality in the class.

A excellent digital camera for whose who want maneuver manual exposure control

Akihiko Itoh "camera mavin", Amazon
17 October 2007
  • Summary: This compact digital camera is equipped with a number of unique features and is suitable for advanced users, having 16:9 aspect-ratio format, manual exposure controls, AE/AF lock, exposure compensation, auto bracket,etc similar to SLR digital cameras. If you are looking for a compact digital camera with something more than fully automatic exposure controls, this is it.

Panasonic Leica = A Great Camera

  • Summary: This is a camera that beginners wanting a powerful camera and enthusiasts and professionals alike can enjoy. It's often a SLR owner's 'pocket camera.
  • Pros: Great lense, menu, ease of use, manual modes, raw ability, SDHC compatible.
  • Cons: Price too high for some. Some noisy pictures at times.

Panasonic DMC-LX2K

T. Yager, Amazon
5 September 2007
  • Summary: The camera works great. I chose this one due to the lens quality and larger numerical aperture than other small cameras. The photos are bright, sharp, and high quality. The camera is easy to use, but allows manual adjustment. I'm still getting use to using a screen rather than a view finder. The screen is bright enough, but tough to see things like a person's expression. DO NOT BUY THE CAMERA CASE BY PANASONIC. The case is a horrible design.

Pretty good for the price, definitely not an SLR replacement...

YF, Amazon
12 March 2007
  • Summary: This camera does what it says it does: it takes 16:9 pictures and video at 10.2MP for pictures and OK resolutions for video. It takes decent video, if you put it on a tripod. The built-in stabilization is worthless in video mode and you'll get a palsy type shaking no matter what you do. In other words, this will not replace your camcorder.

My Search for the "Perfect" Camera is OVER...

Vladimir Ratner "vratner", Amazon
27 February 2007
  • Summary: At least for now it is :-) . During the course of the past 10-12 months I have owned 7, that's SEVEN, digital cameras: Canon S230; Kodak V530; 5 different models of Casio's: Z60, Z600, Z850, P700; and most recently presented my wife with a red S770 for Valentine's Day. I also had a pretty good chance to evaluate Canon SD450 (my brother-in-law owns one - it was actually a gift from my wife and I to him for his 21st birthday), Casio EX-S600 (a good friend of mine owns...

A great camera, but a few caveats...

Steve Summers, Amazon
8 February 2007
  • Summary: I love this camera--most of the time. Great features, damned good lens, good quality pictures, superb wide-angle views, compact size, strong battery, etc. Yes, the lack of a viewfinder is sometimes a problem, but not that often. Most problematic for me is the lack of close focus. My defunct Nikon could capture the fur on a bee half an inch from the lens.
