Lx7 vs Lx5 vs RX100 JPEG Engine compared!!!
Jul 18, 2012

I wanted to do a simple, honest and logical test of these cameras.
Used parts of photos from the comparometer of http://www.imaging-resource.com .

This is meant to test just the JPEG engine.

First Lets compare the LX7 1600 (lowest noise reduction option NR1) with the LX5 iso 1600 (NR probably the default value)

To me its seems that the LX7 sensor although smaller is a big improvement over the LX5. Of course we cant tell if its just the different noise reduction algorithms. THe NR of Lx5 was horrible and seemed very muddy and digital... while the new algorithm seems noisier but allows more detail.
