I plan to replace my Sony HX9v with something more ambitious. Size should be not too much bigger but I will probably use a belt pouch anyway. Now, when I read the Imaging Resource review, the LX7 get 5 points out of 5. However, when checking the house poster and the still life at ISO400, I'd say, the XZ-2 comes out on top, with the LX7 and MX-1 second. Maybe I'm wrong but this is my impression. So, can some LX7'ers out there tell me the actual score in real life shooting? When is the LX7 good...

I'm planning to buy a superzoom and a compact to use for travel. For the compacts I've narrowed down to Pany LX7, Oly XZ-2 and the Pentax MX-1. Then I saw the Casio EX-10/100. Now, after some close looking it seems they have remarkably similar specs to the Olympus XZ-2 and Stylus 1 respectively. Do they share technology? And does anyone have experience in using them? How do they stand up to the more major brands? I used an EX-600 back in the early days of digital and liked it expect  for the...

Bottom Line: I'm thinking of replacing the MX-1 with a G9X.

Does anyone know how to add date to the picture after it has been transferred to PC? Can I transfer it back to the SD card and insert it into the MX-1 camera to add the date or I can add the date in the PC by the software?

Shooting my MX-1 I find a lot of noise in the images, even at low ISO values and in RAW files. What would you suggest or what do you use as a good software to get rid of the grainy appearance in your images without running into a watercolor effect at the same time ? Your opinion is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance, Rudi.

Connected the camera to my PC and I can't get no charging indicator. Looked through the manual - no charging over USB was mentioned there. So is there a way I can charge it from my PC and no from the battery charger?

Converted from dng Converting from dng to jpeg by MX-1 and ACDsee Pro 7 looks horrible. Very grainy when viewing it through ACDSee. Anyone know why ? Bugs in the CODEC ? Too high ISO ? Looks horrible at lower ISO. For some reason it looks better here.
