RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 2


Continued... Sensor quality – Here I would say I am interested in producing natural colours and smooth images (free from noise). The LX7 is better than the LX5 but neither can touch the Sony. The Sony has smooth images with very limited noise that doesn’t get exaggerated when the images are processed. The colours from [...]

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1


It’s funny how the same questions keep coming up in photography and this is one of them. Which is the better camera the RX100 or the LX5/LX7? I see people arguing on forums, it comes up as a search term in the traffic stats for this sight and I even receive emails asking this. I [...]

Sharing some Pictures


For today’s blog post I don’t want to do much more than share some recent images and rave about how impressed I am with the RX100 compact camera. I tend to forget this until I come to process some of the images that are lying around on my hard disk. All the images you see [...]
