|Panasonic Lumix L1 - Exposure|
According to Mark Goldstein: "Though there’s little evidence of purple fringing unless you really, really look for it, even on an overcast day it’s easy to lose highlight detail unless you underexpose by a couple of stops, a slightly underexposed image being preferable to one devoid of detail. Though the above concerns are being picky, the biggest bugbear I found with the L1 was its inability – if left on auto - to determine accurate focus in low or filtered natural light. For me its performance in this respect was far less reliable than the likes of Nikon’s D40, which costs a third of the L1."

Mark continues: "In terms of portability the Panasonic L1 is rather weighty and unwieldy, not to mention prohibitively costly, though that added heft – and to be fair, very nicely constructed build – somewhat cushions the blow. The L1 is certainly a high quality if slightly flawed product that I feel is more a way of Panasonic establishing itself as a premium brand among DSLRs than actually producing something it is going to sell in any great numbers."

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
