Excerpt: I have owned a ---bunch of Digital cameras. This is THE best. It takes photos every bit as good as a DSLR..I attached a teather to the lenscap..NO problem. .IMO this is one of the finest P&S cameras on the market.--because of the superb imagew quality.
Summary: I purchased this camera about a year ago but never took this camera serious until recently. On an overseas trip to S. Korea. I ended up using this camera because I found it impractical to carry around Canon 40 D when you walk or ride subway most of times.
Excerpt: I bought this camera in Nov. 06. These comments are from my own personal viewpoint and are aimed at RAW shooters. I wouldn't use this camera to shoot any of the image types which are compulsorily noise reduced. I have read the other comments in this review so will try not to repeat those comments.
Excerpt: I have had this camera since it was released, and I am very satesfied with having a camera with the same 9:16 format as the standard today for TVs and PC monitors. I cannot understand why camera producers keep on producing 4:3 sensors. Most amateurs look at their photos on their PC or TV.
Summary: Summary: An innovative and stunningly capable compact at a reasonable price with control options usually found only in SLRs. Pros: "Wide" implementation in almost every way; flexible use of sensor and aspect ratios to maximize zoom, resolution, and framing options; well-organized UI; classic camera...
Excerpt: In June 2007 I began using a Panasonic Lumix LX2 digital camera. Without going into a sales pitch (which I would be happy to do at a moment's notice), let me just say that it fits my hand - and my eye - like it was made for them. I love the 16:9 - almost panoramic - aspect ratio.
Excerpt: I bought LX2 second hand for 200 EUR, so for that price it is perfect. Very capabel camera if You stick with low iso. Size is perfect. All important functions are easy accessible. Great camera. I think it is worth to mention, that in 16:9 mode widest position is close to 25 to 26 mm, which is great.
Excerpt: I dought a Panasonc TZ5 less than a week ago and returned it to the store within 3 days. The LX2 is much better suited to my needs as it has fully manual controls, manual focus and RAW capabilities. Yes, it does produce a noisier/uglier picture at high ISO when using JPG.
Excerpt: What a brilliant camera. Used it for over a year and the quality can be very good for this type and size of camera. However to obtain quality results - keep IS0 set to 100 and leave it there - this is important to avaoid a high noise level.. If time allows use RAW.
Excerpt: Excellent image quality shooting RAW. I use this camera in RAW capture 100% of the time and have no issue with resulting files through ISO 800. http://gmchappell.smugmug.com/gallery/3986208#231772875 I use the supplied Silkypix RAW converter and have worked out parameter settings from ISO 100-800...
