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. I read the complaints--and honestly do Not understand them..This is a 4x zoom ...way better than the newer lx3!!. The build is solid..Ilove it. Problems: None to date...I have had this LX2 for 45 days..Taken many shots...Some bad , but that is ...

90% of my shots are in daylight and screen is impossible to see, especially when you have sun over your shoulder as is preferred. Quality drops as zoom increases and noise gets bad above iso200. Close up shots are good with iso100 and no zoom. Detail in landscape shots is poor. My olympus 540d cheapy takes better quality shots. Lx3 appears to have solved lens quality - but prefer 30-75mm lens. Camera needs some form of eyepiece for daytime and needs 2/3" senser with say 14mgpxls square cm. ...

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. I am a stills photographer and shoot RAW exclusively and through experiment have found that the 'software package' used to develop the RAW image is crucial in producing the best rendition of the ...

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. Myself I take both photos and video clips with my LX2, and edit these together with a video editing software - adding music, texts, zoom/pan the still images, etc. and burn the result on a DVD with menu for ...

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. My wife says I'm like a kid with a new bike. After almost a year of using this camera, I have a built up a large gallery of LX2 photographs on my web site, "Taking The Long View: A Panasonic LX2 Portfolio." (The ...

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. This combined with wide aspect ratio gives options that not many cameras gives. Problems: Video mode might be better. Canon is in this area better. I wish less noise reduction.

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. This is not an issue for me at this time as I am using RAW and post processing in the computer. Problems: I wish Panasonic would give us a persistant self-timer. When using long exposures for a series of night-time shots you ...

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. Always keep on the 16:9 ratio setting, can crop later. Problems: Problems are high noise at higher IS0 - really high noise level! No viewfinder - very hard to see viewing screen in bright conditions - even with the bright screen.

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 and apply them to each image as a starting point, making adjustments as needed. Just about any manual option you could name for a camera, the LX2 has it. The user control options on a camera this ...
