Panasonic LS2 - White balance & Noise|
According to Yin Wong: "As the above picture shows, the Auto White Balance (AWB) gives a slight colour cast under fluorescent artificial light. Fortunately, there is Custom (Manual) White Balance. AWB works well in natural light. The 100% crops above (area delimited by the white square, lower right) demonstrate the noise at the available ISO Speeds of 80, 100, 200 and 400. Noise is visible at all ISOs, becoming increasingly visible as we go up the ISO. There is CA in everyday high contrast shots."
Panasonic DMC LS2 camera - LCD monitor
Yin Wong continues: "There is no viewfinder but a 2.0 in. LCD monitor with a clear and very usable display. The low 85,000 pixels resolution is a bit surprising in this day and age with a refresh rate that is not quite fast enough for a smooth display. You can manually adjust the LCD monitor's brightness in SETUP. The LCD monitor does not gain up in low-light and there is no AF-assist Illuminator." You want to learn more about the Panasonic camera?

Photoxels was founded in 2002 by MyKhanh Wong (Owner, Editor) and Yin Wong (Contributing Editor), the editors behind Photoxels. In 2001, we went on the Web to learn about digital cameras like everyone else. But it seems that the more we read about digital cameras, the more reviews we scrutinized, and the more we searched... the more confused we became. If we were somewhat confused about which digital cameras to buy before visiting the digital camera review sites, we became even more confused after reading most of the (very) technical reviews. Slowly, one article and one review at a time, we pieced together what were really important to know about digital cameras and clarified many of the digital photography-related terminology. We decided to share what we learned on the Internet, and Photoxels was born.
