Member needs HELP

I want an high end compact to carry when it's not possible to carry my D200, and was looking at the Lumix LX2. The problem is, I have read all the reviews i can find on the net, but the reviews differ greatly. They range from EXCELLENT with 5 STARS to RUBBISH DO NOT BUY. Do any members own one? Would you recommend this camera?

Many Thanks

Hi Terry
Nothing to do with your image, but I couldn't see any other way of contacting you.
I see you love horseracing photography and I am looking for someone who can help me produce an article on the subject for Photography Monthly magazine.
Would you like to get involved (write/send pix etc)? If so, perhaps you can drop me a line. Use either willtherooster@btinternet.com or will.cheung@archant.co.uk
I look forward to hearing from you.

Most of the Lumix cams seem to suffer from noise above ISO 100, with the newer ones suffering OTT noise reduction at higher ISOs. Perhaps consider the Canon S5 IS ?

To be honest, the noise can be an issue but, when used within its limitations, the LX2 is an excellent little camera. I'm perfectly happy with mine but then again it's permanently set to RAW output at iso 100....

A PM could have been sent?

(Not Mr Brown, though!) Smile
The reviews that I read on the Lumix cams were not particularly favourable. Noise and striping were some of the issues.

But there is nothing trying it out yourself to decide how it performs.

PMs are a bit advanced for Will, believe me I've had the discussion! Too easily confused with the short version of the magazine name probably Smile
