LX5 jpeg colors: Panasonic still has the same LX3 problem....
Sep 9, 2010

reds are magentas. I can't quite find where to modify the white balance per setting like the LX3 (maybe it's taken out?) so not sure what to do with that. If you want good color, shoot in RAW.

I must say Panasonic should pay Kodak or Fuji whatever it is to license a good JPEG color profile. The LX5 colors are overall as bad as the LX3's were.

PS: Got an LX5 today. I think I am returning it. The big win is the new B&W grainy film mode which now uses full 10 megapixels. Unfortunately you can't shoot manual this way but it has pretty good results.

Dynamic B&W as usual is great, but now the noise reduction kicks in with more strength even setting it all the way down.

makes a good photograph.'
