I am needing to record long full day speaking engagements.  The best quality is not the most important thing.  The most important thing is to be able to set and forget it and have it record for 4-6 hours at a time. Budget is another important factor in the recommendation. Audio is not important, audio is recorded from the sound booth. Most of the files I have recorded using my cell phone are in the 30+gb size so would like the camera to be able to accept a 64gb memory card. Point and shoot is...

Hi everyone,a friend of mine wants a cheap small camera in addition to a bigger one for having it all time with her. I use for that purpose an old Panasonic LX3, which i like very much. Thanks to the many physical switches I can operate it without looking at it, e.g. while drinving my car. This might be a little drawback with the RX series - but will the bigger sensor really give superior pictures?Has anyone made a comparison between  a Panasonic LX3, 5 or 7 with a Sony RX100 Mark 1? (A later...

My trusty Panny LX1 recently expired and I have replaced it with a LX5.  The LX1 had a exposure compensation dedicated key on the rear dial cross.  The LX5 appears to have a function key instead, but I cannnot find a menu option to set exposure compensation under the function button. Am I missing something here, or can exposure compensation only be made under full manual mode?  I normally shoot Aperture priority mode and am getting frustrated at being unable to make exposure compensation to...

I've been doing ample research about a good point and shoot for a beginner to take with me on my travels. Obviously, as a beginner, I prefer something user-friendly that will help me learn the basics, but I'm willing to dig deep in the manual (and interwebs) to learn. I would also like something sturdy and compact that won't fail me halfway through my trip... I've narrowed down my options to the LX5 or a Powershot S series. I was also considering the Olympus XZ-1, but I've heard that it does...

Hi. Recently a friend announced he was buying a new camera and offered to sell me his 550 EXR for $14 au (I have no idea where that figure came from) .  I suppose I wasn't surprised to find out after agreeing that it had a problem. Apparently it had been working perfectly well, when for no apparent reason the battery began to drain whenever the battery/SD card compartment was shut, even if the camera was powered off. Since it came with several spare batteries, I tested it, and sure enough,...

I"ve just replaced my old LX5 with the LX7 and would like to keep and use the LWA52 wide angle lens,,  I understand that I need to purchase a KIWI tube adaptor which I can get from Germany via Amazon,   now when I bought the LX7 it came with a full printed manual, but having looked all the way through it I still cannot see how I would attach the KIWI tube. Can someone please explain how it connects. Thanks guys,,,, Roland.

Having sorted out a FZ200 replacement for my FZ150, I wondered if you guys could help me with a question regarding the LX5 / LX7 Simply,, will the LVF-1 viewfinder, LA6 + LWA52 adaptor tube and wide lens and spare battery that I have/use with my LX5 also fit and work on the LX7 or would I need to "start again" with these bits. Also with the cosy of buying these ""add on"s"" along with the camera, would the outlay be worth it for the better camera / iq that the LX7 would supposedly give me,,...

This has probably been asked before, and if so, please excuse my asking again, but,,,, I have an "aging" FZ150, that I'm not 100% is as sharp as it should be after being dropped a few weeks ago,, first time EVER that I've dropped a cam,, Now although I still have and use the TZ25 / LX5 combo, I'm thinking I will replace the 150,, I had a very brief ownership of a FZ1000 which (to cut the story short) wasn't for me so can you guys answer me this,, Do I pick up another used FZ150 or is the...

The more I think about it, the more I will opt for the GH4R. I did find a good deal for the GH2, which I could hack and all, but I am not so sure about using a hacked system. And I checked most of the GH2 hacked video samples. They look pretty good, and they would better blend with the LX100 than the current old LX5 and the beloved LX3 I have (no 1080p, either). Maybe I am unconsciously biased, but I like the GH4 video quality better. I see the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 (€200) seems close...
