  • As an example of what I'm working with here, he's leaning towards the G15 or P7700 because "they have more megapixels". Oh well.
  • My friend is absolutely not looking for a system with interchangeable lenses. He's not a photography buff and doesn't want to become one, he just wants a camera that will take decent pictures....
  • Created questions $300 price leader?
    Ten months ago, when I bought my Panasonic LX7, it was pretty indisputable in terms of price vs. performance. I've got a buddy looking to buy a camera in that price range now, and I'm definitely...
  • I'm not a very good person to give a review like this, since I don't have any experience with photo printers, nor any recent experience with personal printers in general. When the printer first...
  • Not trying to be clever or start one of those criticism-by-rhetorical-question threads, I honestly want to know. I've seen a few of these in the wild and they made an impression, so I looked them...
  • True - many manufacturers do this. The Canon Pixma I bought has a one digit difference from other regional variants. Unfortunately, in my search I couldn't figure out what the equivalent model to...
  • Sorry, that wasn't meant to be a criticism of your advice, which I appreciated, but simply an expression of my worries about Epson printers based on my other research. Either way, it's kind've moot...
  • I'm wary of Epson because I've observed a much higher rate of negative reviews for them as compared to Canon's Pixma line, although half an hour browsing Amazon reviews is only worth so much. Their...
  • Thanks, there's a lot of very good information in this post. I'm avoiding the route of two machines as I don't print enough to need the cheaper per-page printing of a laser printer, and color laser...
  • I'm looking for recommendations on a fairly basic all-in-one inkjet for photo and document printing. This is strictly home use, so I don't need a high-volume printer or top-quality photo printer,...
  • Just an observation here, not intended to be a value judgment: If this paragraph is reflective of Leica's thinking in marketing the X-Vario, it appears that Leica is just another luxury brand,...
  • I read somewhere that the LX7 actually has a Leica equivalent, which is the same lens, sensor, and image processor in a Leica-designed and -branded form. If that's the case, the LX7's lens is...
  • I was starting to lean towards the GX1 as a good match for my LX7 in the aesthetic department (and because it seems to be highly-recommended while also being quite inexpensive), we could buy an...
  • A compact is definitely in consideration; I bought an LX7 a couple months after getting her the a57 (didn't have a camera at all for about six months before that), and she's begged me to trade...
  • Created questions Switching to M43?
    Half a year ago, I got a Sony a57 for my girlfriend, along with a cheap long zoom lens. She insisted on a big SLR even after I warned her that she might not like carrying it around, but now she...
  • The only thing preventing you from installing OSX on a PC is the EULA. They claim it won't work as well because of the hardware variety, and there's some truth to that, but the actual reason they...
  • Have you tried looking for gray market models online? I live in China, bought my LX7 online, and ended up receiving a South American model with the language selection flashed so it has Simplified...
  • If size is an issue, the RX100 is the best option you've listed. The Panasonic LX7 does most of what it does for half the price in most markets. A friend comparing the two said he would take the...
  • Those look really nice. If I can't find one of the other mass-produced ones here in China, I might treat myself with one of those when I go back to the States this summer.
  • That one looks really good. Bonus points for most of the pictures showing the strap on a GF2 that looks almost identical to the LX7 and looking good on it.
