Specification



The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 and Samsung EX2F are serious compact cameras, with a similar set of features, such as 3 inch LCD screen, full 1080p HD video recording and full manual controls. They have slightly different resolution sensors and optical zoom.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Samsung EX2F Features

In terms of megapixels, the Samsung EX2F offers slightly more at 12.4, whereas the LX7 has 10.1 megapixels. The LX7 has more optical zoom, it's 3.8x offering is a 35mm equivalent of 24-90mm, the 3.3x optical zoom lens on the EX2F is an equivalent of 24-80mm, so they are both as wide, with the Panasonic reaching further at the telephoto end. While shooting wide both lenses have a maximum aperture of f/1.4, with a slight difference at the telephoto end, with the LX7 having a maximum aperture of f/2.3, the EX2F has a maximum aperture of f/2.7 at its maximum length.

Other than that, both cameras are very similar, with optical image stabilisation, 3 inch screens, full manual controls, ISO 80-12800, 1cm minimum focusing distance and full 1080p HD video recording found on both. The LX7 has a higher resolution screen and offers 11fps continuous shooting as opposed to 10fps on the EX2F, but does have built in Wi-Fi.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Samsung EX2F Handling

The Samsung EX2F has a chunky metal body compared to the LX7. It feels well built and the large front rubber grip gives you a firm hold of the camera. On the back there is a small rubber area for your thumb, as well as a raised area to stop you from accidentally pressing the video or AEL buttons. The LX7 features a good size rubber grip on the front of the camera. A lens cap can be attached with the lens strap loop to make sure you don't lose it. The camera also comes with a high quality neck strap that helps add additional quality to the camera. A customisable function button can be found on the back 4-way d-pad, a control dial as well as an ND / focus switch. On top of the lens surround is an aspect ratio switch and aperture ring, and on the left of the focus switch letting you choose between AF / AF+Macro or Manual.

The EX2F front scroll wheel lets you change settings, or when pressed in lets you set exposure compensation. It's fairly easy to accidentally press this in and alter EV without realising. The lens surround has a bumpy textured area to help grip the camera with your right hand, and this does screw off to allow additional accessories (assuming they are readily available). The swivel screen can be folded away to protect the screen, however this suggests that an electronic viewfinder could be used instead, however one is not (currently) available, and there doesn't appear to be an accessory port even if one was available.

The LX7 comes with a built in electronic level, as well as an updated menu system. The menu is clear and has a wealth of options. The camera provides a Q. Menu button giving quick access to common settings overlaid on the rear screen. The screen is bright and clear, although a little difficult to see in really bright conditions. There is the option to purchase the DMW-LVF2 viewfinder if preferred.

The Samsung menus are clearly laid out and the high quality screen certainly helps reading and using them. Pressing the Fn (Function) button brings up a "Super Control Panel" which is identical to the Samsung NX menu system, this gives you quick access to a number of common settings and makes it really easy to change options. There are also a number of external controls so that you don't need to use the menus too much on this camera, although the Wi-Fi button on the 4-way dial seems a little redundant especially as there is a Wi-Fi position on the mode dial.
 
The LX7 battery life is rated at 330 shots according to CIPA standards, during testing we managed well in excessive of this and the battery was still going strong. According to the Samsung user manual (on CD) the battery should last for 240 shots. We were able to take just over 200 shots before the battery went flat. This is likely to be less the more the Wi-Fi is used.

We tested the camera's performance at focusing, shutter response, shot-to-shot time, continuous shooting etc. and have posted the results below. To test this we took 6 or more shots and calculated the average.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7   Samsung EX2F
Shutter Response   0.1 seconds   0.05 seconds
Wide - Focus / Shutter Response   0.25 seconds   0.4 seconds
Full zoom - Focus / Shutter Response   0.3 seconds   0.4 seconds
Switch on Time to Taking a Photo   1.3 seconds   1.9 seconds
Shot to Shot (without flash)   0.9 seconds   1.0 seconds
Shot to Shot with Flash   1.3 seconds   2.0 seconds
Continuous shooting   11 fps   10 fps

In all areas except shutter response, the LX7 is quicker than the EX2F, although it is fairly close.

The LX7 takes pictures with excellent colour reproduction, with portrait shots having excellent skin tones, with just the slightest hint of red-eye when shooting with the flash. The EX2F portrait shot shows good skin tones and colour, and outdoor shots have particularly impressive levels of detail and good colour.

Lens Performance - The EX2F images are very sharp (perhaps a little too sharp for some) and have a lot of detail whether shooting wide or with the zoom. Some purple fringing is visible when shooting bright contrasting areas, however in most situations it is very well controlled. When using the LX7, images are packed with detail throughout when shooting at both ends of the lens. Purple fringing is kept to a minimum. Overall, detail is slightly better when using the EX2F.

ISO Noise Performance - Images shot on the LX7 at ISO 80 and 100 are free of noise, with only a little extra appearing when you shoot at ISO 200, 400 and 800. A little softening appears at ISO 1600, with ISO 3200 showing the first real signs of a loss in image quality, but images are still fairly sharp. At ISO 6400 images are very soft and look like they've been smudged. At the highest setting of ISO 12800, images are extremely noisy, but file size is limited to 3 megapixels.

With the EX2F, noise is low at ISO100 and ISO200, but becomes visible at ISO 400 and even more so at ISO 800 noise increases. Again at ISO 1600 noise increases further and detail is lost. ISO 3200 shows a lot of noise and this setting is best avoided, as well as the higher settings. In normal outdoor shooting images appear to have low noise levels when using the lower ISO settings.

Overall, the LX7 far out performs the EX2F in terms of image quality at ISO 400 and upwards.

White Balance Performance - Auto White Balance (AWB) performance on the EX2F is good with a slightly warm result under tungsten lighting. For a more neutral result, using the tungsten preset has produced an excellent image. AWB performs very well under fluorescent lighting, and using the fluorescent preset has given the image a very slight green cast.

When using the LX7, under both our incandescent and fluorescent lights, the AWB preset copes really well. The incandescent preset has a slight orange cast in the image, there is no fluorescent preset available, this isn't a problem given the impressive AWB performance.

Panorama mode - Both cameras take panoramas which are stitched together well, the EX2F ones have more detail and a higher resolution.

Samsung EX2F Digital filters



Digital Filters - The EX2F has a number of Smart Filters to apply filters and special effects. In the Magic Plus home you can select a number of standard scene modes as well as panoramic, magic frame, split shot, picture in picture, artistic brush, HDR and creative movie maker. The LX7 has a number of picture styles which can be used when shooting in modes such as manual, aperture and shutter priority. The creative control modes can only be used as their own independent modes, but you can increase or decrease the level of their effect.

Video - Both cameras record at full 1080p HD with stereo sound and quality is good on both. Optical zoom is also available during recording on both models as well.





Value For Money

There are a number of serious compact cameras, details can be found below, of these, the Nikon Coolpix P7700 (vari-angle screen) is the nearest competitor in terms of similar features, however we'd also recommend having a look at the Fujifilm FinePix X10 as well as the Sony Cyber-shot RX100.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 vs Samsung EX2F Verdict

When we tested each camera individually, they both scored a respectable four out of five, but when comparing them there are some clear differences and we are happy to say that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 comes out on top. The Samsung EX2F scored better on features because the Wi-Fi functionality is fantastic and extremely useful, but other than that both cameras have a similar feature set. Despite the Samsung's pictures having slightly more detail, we are very impressed with the LX7's noise performance. Much better images are produced by the Panasonic when compared to the EX2F at higher ISOs. AWB performs slightly better as does the battery on the LX7.

More more information and pictures, read our Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 review and Samsung EX2F review.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 takes great pictures, even at higher ISO's and offers an excellent set of features.

Many thanks for this side by side test as both of these cameras are on my 'serious compacts' consideration list, amongst a few others aswell ( Fuji XF1, Nikon P7700, Olympus XZ2-iHS, Sony RX100 )!

What about write-times for JPEGs & RAWs ? Can the cameras be used while writing ?

Easy of use / handling. controls, both direct buttons/ knobs and electronic menu based, ability to customise for individual use etc.

It would also be useful if you also mentioned each camera's ability to use add-on filters, how this is achievable ( or not ) and also if they have the ability to use either a wired remote shutter release or wireless / infra-red, plus optional accessories, eg; add-on EVF, Flashgun available.

Maybe a mega-test of the latest crop of 'serious compacts' ?

Hi, 1948custom, a lot of these questions are covered in the individual reviews of these cameras (links are above). The EX2F doesn't have an option for an additional EVF, while the LX7 does. The EX2F does slow you down when shooting, for example you can't change any settings while the camera is writing to the memory card, but you can take another photo.

We will be reviewing the other serious compact cameras as and when they become available, and where possible we will be posting comparison reviews.

Many thanks for that, I missed the links amongst all the info.!

The reason I started looking at the EX2F is the Articulated Screen. I am a Canon person and would be looking at the G15 if it had an articulated screen. The G1X is great but not small enough so my travel needs. The articulated screen gives many more shooting options, overhead, waste height, around corners. The options are unlimited.

I greatly appreciated your detailed review but you failed to mention what I consider to be the EX2F best feature.
