Re: LX5 vs LX7 : CCD vs CMOS--video

I haven't done a side by side comparison, but in theory the LX7's CMOS sensor should give it a little bit of advantage in video.

In general, if the sun gets in the scene, CCD sensors have a tendency to bloom with streaks. The CMOS sensor should not have that problem.

The LX7 might capture a little bit sharper action video with true 60 fps CMOS sensor output.  The CCD sensor of the LX5, although it can shoot "60 fps" video is really only giving 30 fps output.
