Noise in Lumix cameras

That FZ uses one of the smallest sensors going (1/2.3) its how they manage to fit such a long zoom into such a small camera and your going to need to make compromises.

Use in good light, use with flash, expose to the right etc.

Hedre is a list of CCD/CMOS sensor sizes.
The larger the sensor, the greater the light capturing ability.
The sizes in red are circled because I have, and currently
use, all these cameras. Every one of them meets my expectations
for that sensor size.
See my portfolio for images from the Lumix and Fuji.

Oh, I got all excited then. Started reading this thread and saw StrayCat and Lemmy contributing. Hurray, I thought, but then saw that this thread started three years ago. Sad

Interesting subject, there was a time when Micro 4/3 was knocking on the door of APS-C users, well its now come in, I use a Panny GX7 and it produces superb images, yes, its probably got more noise at higher ISO readings than FF but its nearly on a par now with APS-C sensors. I am just a point and shoot amateur photographer and tend to stay below ISO 400, usually 200 or less.

I dumped my Sony SLT A-57 + lenses for the GX7 as it was just getting tedious to carry round. I have a friend who is a photographic competition judge and he often says, would you look at a Monet from 6 feet or more away or peer at it under a magnifier,

I loved my GX7, with care, I could get images to rival those from my 5D MkII.

A Monet? No. But I look at images in the ePz gallery and on the web from less than 2 feet away. That kind of statement from the photographic judge contains a false premise, it suggests that all images are printed then hung on walls, further suggesting that blurred and noisy images do not matter because, like when we view a painting by Monet, we will all be 6 feet or more away. It's rubbish. Ask your friend if it's prints only and six feet away when he or she is judging images for competitions?
