so i need a new compact digital, and im thinking of getting one of the 'high-end' compacts in the market right now. ive narrowed it down to these two. i'd love to get the fuji x10 actually, but thats a bit out of my budget range.
so after reading reviews on both these.. well actually i mainly read the dpreview reviews on both these.. it seems like there's only one point on each that im not sure about.. and since im sure there are lot of u guys who own one of these, u can advise me better than dpreview?
the Lumix - the biggest negative on the Cons list on dpreview is the LCD screen. they say its hard to use in bright light, and worse, the picture shown on the screen isnt that accurate. that reminds me of a lumix my friend used to have (a lower end one) and i always thought that the camera was good, but the pics it shows on the LCD look horrible. have to upload to see if its good or not. for me, thats quite a big turn off. so, LX5 owners.. is this true? is it that bad, or is it exaggerated?
the XZ-1 - high ISO performance? i read that anything about ISO 400 looks pretty bad. i dont generally shoot at high ISO, but on digital, i'd like to be able to bump it up without really degrading the shot. is the high ISO performance worse than other cameras in this range (for example, worse than the LX5)? i mean, i dont expect wonders from the small sensor, but i'd like to know if its on par wth competition, or below
and well, if any of u guys have owned or used both of these, any recommendations? or would u really recommend i save up an extra $100 (or a bit more) n go for the fuji x10? thanks for reading!
