    Here came to the most fun part, break the piñata (candy box). This time instead of breaking it w/ a bat, the kids had to pull the strings together to get the candis out:



    It's pretty hard to get all the kids inline w/o some of them pulling the strings earlier:



    Now! Grab as many as you can:

    Some post process might be overly done 'cause I used some pre-defined Actions in Photshop CS6, which were meant for my dSLR RAW files. Anyway, hope you guys like these.

    Phenomenal bokeh from a compact lens!

    Well, the elder sis did all the poses, the younger brother wasn't very happy:
    Pizza Hut is definitely not a restaurant!

    I have not seen Bokeh that Great and round in a compact point & shoot, actually i doubt there is a compact that produced Bokeh. Nice photos, thanks Fengwei.

    Maybe over next few photos could you take some w evening shots, outdoor and indoor?

    Bokeh needs a fast lens. Not something that can be easily done within the size limitation of compacts. The MX-1 is big enough to allow the inclusion of a bigger sensor and the required elements to make this happen. One or 2 compacts has done this previously but never in such a sexy body

    Fengwei, thanks for the initial impressions.

    It does seem that the MX-1 is very flexible with a fast zoom lens.
    Nice bokeh too for a compact (ie. not just shallow DOF, but bokeh).

    Thanks guys for your comments. Yes, it's indeed a very nice and versatile camera. I played LX7 and XZ-2 briefly, I feel the MX-1 takes better photos than the LX7 (other than the 24mm wide end on this one), on par of XZ-2 if not better. Low light performance is pretty good for such a small camera.

    Does it have a snap focus? Seems like a great upgrade from my Ricoh grd3!

    At least the sensor is bigger. Saw it today at TK for $690, looked cool.

    Hi Fengwai,

    I was wondering if the post processing affected the bokeh- the bokeh looks quite nice, especially for a compact- Would I see this quality if it was just straight from the camera?

    I didn't do anything on the bokeh. Other than some usual adjustment (level/curve) then resize w/ abit sharpening, I haven't done much processing on these photos. Actually I never like to do a lot post process other than these.

    Someone posted a review saying MX-1 can take panaroma shots in camera? Is it true ?

    Ops, I didn't know companies still release cameras which can't do that...
