Panasonic DMC-LX1 - Image quality|
According to Steve Sanders: "I was pleased with the camera's overall image quality. You can choose from a variety of image sizes as well as aspect ratios. When selecting different ratios, the maximum resolution will change: 4:3 = 6-megapixels, 3:2 = 7-megapixels and 16:9 = 8-megapixels. This great deal of versatility ensures that there is an image size choice for just about every user, no matter what the application may be. When shooting outdoors, the LX1 produces sharp, resolute images in all three modes."
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1 - Steves Digicams review conclusion
Steve continues: "Noise levels were very low for a consumer model, allowing for nice open blue skies. The LX1's macro capabilities were also very good. It can focus on a subject under 2 inches away and it controls the flash output nicely to ensure you don't over expose the subject. The Panasonic DMC-LX1 features an exceptional Leica DC-VARIO ELMARIT 4x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent range of 28mm - 112mm. This lens offers much more versatility in composing your shots when compared to standard 3x optical zoom lens. In general, I found it captured good quality movies, and I like how the 3:2 and 16:9 ratio movies have a letterbox or wide screen feel to them. Interchangeable aspect ratios for various applications, speedy shooting performance and great image quality help make this camera a tight little package.
