    Default Recommend a Lumix Prosumer

    Hi,

    Am thinking of getting a Lumix prosumer for travel purposes. Something which is sharp, gives good color contrast and has reasonable noise control. I'm not looking at those simple pns stuff.

    What's a good model to recommend? Is LX-3 the one?

    Thanks

    For Travelling... you can try the TZ15, but it is more of a PnS and not a prosumer....

    lx3 would be a good choice, but you lose out on the zoom.
    so you need to ask yourself does zoom matters to you.

    i don't use the cam very well i think...lots of unexplored features. i only just started to add lens to the camera....still trying to learn how to use the macro, telephoto & wideangle lens more effectively. i don't have an external flash...my nightshots with the cam aren't great (also 'cos i'm too lazy to lug a tripod around). please share your tips!!

    I think so too. Haha. The avg prosumer weighs between 350 to 450g. The G1 is around 700g with lens. But for Fujifilm's S100fs, that weighs a whooping 900g.

    No lah.. you are too modest.. I have tried with PL, ND & wide angle lens.. have not got a close-up lens like "Raynox DCR-250"....
