    ..... I get a feeling that the saturation level should be dialed down -1 ..... maybe even sharpness and RGB levels ........ all these are adjustable in the camera's menu

    the 80cm minimum focussing distance is also restrictive......... i have dialed it to Macro focussing which allows focussing from 5cm out

    Looks pretty good in my opinion. Anyway, I managed to find that there is seller on eBay selling the samsung ex-1 with extra battery and 8gb sd card for 580. Is the prive supposed to be lower than the current lx3 ?

    Updated the firmware a few mins ago

    Below shot at

    AWB
    Florescent light
    ISO 100
    1/30
    f3.4
    Focussed on the number '16'

    On-camera adjustments made in "Image Adjust:"
    Contrast at '0'
    Sharpness at '-1'
    Saturation at '-1'


    25


    -------------------------------------------------

    On-camera adjustments made in "Image Adjust:"
    Contrast at '0'
    Sharpness at '0'
    Saturation at '0'


    26


    -------------------------------------------------

    Just have a look at that red band on the SD card on the 2 pics........ the difference is quite marked considering i just moved Saturation from '0' to '-1'

    The reds seem gaudier and a little 'blotchy' in image 26 when everything is set at '0' level ...... seems to be a little color 'bleeding' in image 26 as well...... please advise your opinions too..... I am curious

    apologies if this is not very scientific

    Saturation +1 looks vibrant...+2 definitely too much...

    Just went down to the pc show to play around with it. It definitely feels a little slower than the panasonic lx3.

    Compared to the lx3 the ex1 is a monster in size but it makes it easier to handle than lx3, giving the ex1 a more steady feel and hold.

    The screen is great and the pictures taken are pretty good but hard to achieve the nice bokeh. Unless you are pretty close to the subject.
