As the title, I currently have a ZS7 that I am relatively happy with but am hankering after a change and have narrowed it down to the LF1 or ZS40. So the ZS7 has x12 zoom which is mostly long enough, but it is probably just too big for a trouser pocket when in its' case. Pictures I take are mainly holiday, sporting or music events. For the latter zoom is important for the former wide angle, pocket ability and low light. Key criteria for me are: some sort of manual control size zoom Picture...
I have had the LF1 for some time now and am very happy with it including in low light - for still photography. However I have recently started making casual use of the video function. I am finding it useless in low light due to very poor light sensitivity; my cheap phone is way better! Presumably the problem is nothing more than a setting, but I cannot find it! Can anyone enlighten :-) me?
I have a Panasonic Lumix LF1 which I like quite well. However my girlfriend wants it and I am thinking of giving it to her and upgrading. What options do I have? The two things that most interest me are: even better image quality if possible and staying at or close to the same size and weight as the LF1. Greater zoom range is not important to me nor is GPS. I would pop for the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III if convinced it offers significantly better image quality but reviews I've read haven't...

All with R72 filter. I didn't realize the shutter speed was so slow when I shot these. About 1/15 sec. This effect is enhanced by a different way of desaturating the image. These images are okay, but if you want real infrared, get a real infrared camera.

This is a potter wasp. This is a solitary wasp whose lifecycle more closely resembles that of the butterfly than the usual hive-based wasps. It's quite small, doesn't defend its nest, and rarely stings. Click on the image to see larger version . And here's why they're called potter wasps.

My current P&S is a Sony DSC-W80... until I got my iPhone 5S and realized how much better my pictures could be. But after 6 months with the new phone I know that any picture heavy trips, such as my upcoming trip to Europe, would benefit from a new stand alone camera with modern specs. It really doesn't seem like I bought the Sony *that* long ago but I guess I did. It's nice to not be storage space restricted as you would be on a smartphone that is competing for space with...
For travel, I use a Panasonic LF1 compact camera (an excellent, small compact). A frequent image I want to capture is of my family standing in the shade against a bright scenic background. So I purchased a small Sunpak optical slave flash; there is no hotshoe on the LF1. In testing the flash I noticed something remarkable. When the slave is set to low power the image capture is darker than if the same scene is captured by the camera's internal flash alone. I thought I was imagining this, so...
