Ben Long has recently posted his review on Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 , a 8.4 megapixels point-and-shoot digital camera with 2.5″ LCD screen, at CreativePro.
“That said, there’s a lot to like about the LX1. You won’t give up any critical controls compared to an SLR, and the raw format and adjustable aspect ratios give you more image-editing and compositional options than you’ll normally have on a small camera.
Though it’s not as tiny as some cameras, the LX1 still fits nicely in a coat pocket or bag, and it’s a lot easier than lugging a full SLR kit.
The noise issue is a problem but not a total deal-breaker for me. You can treat the noise issue with software, and for landscape shooting, the camera’s ISO 80 and 100 are very clean. If you think you’ll shoot mostly indoor snapshots in low light, you might want a different camera. Otherwise, the LX1 is an excellent option for the SLR shooter who wants a smaller alternative for occasional use.”
