Got meself a new ultra compact camera during my day off. Its kinda hard to choose from whatever is available in the market.
Asked for advise, gone thru reviews in the net, websites, yada yada whateveritiscalled.
Narrow down to 3 choices and got some great review from our favourite 5XMom ( pronounce as 5 EX MOM )chuckle. Link here.
In the end, we both opted for a Panasonic Lumix FX01 and as Lilian said, why not FX10 ? Chuckle !
Why we chose this ? Well, my wife likes the design, LCD and some of the functions. Me ? I'm ok with the price but the LEICA lens , thats the one that capture my attention most. Indeed LEICA came out with a similar camera but the design sux....lolz.
Anyway, am glad to have bought one and with the 20 scene mode especially the FOOD MACRO SCENE.
Here's the pic of the new and old camera.
We opted for this BLACK PN LUMIX. Just prefer this to the WHITE or SILVER .
See the ANTIQUE camera on the LCD ? The only thing I dont like about this camera is the dial button . Why cant they be like Canon where everything is on a press of a button instead of a dial or rolling button ? I'm not sure what you called that button. Top Left button, where u roll it left or right to choose between various function. i.e. macro, video, still, etc.
The old but trusted CANON IXY 3.2. A good camera but the battery is damn expensive to replace and the worst is the CF card is corrupted. Not really but sort of screwed up. 2 Battery + a new CF card will set me back by about RM700.00, aint it better to buy a new camera ?
Front view of the camera. Bought them in Japan and sent over via courier. My BIL bought it for us there as it was cheaper there even with the courier charges.
Will post about some picture of food we have taken with the 2 camera for comparison. Set the Lumix pic to 3MP and they turns out so much better in terms of quality and less digital noise.
