Panasonic DMC-LF1EB-K Lumix Compact Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP) 3.0 inch LCD
[gallery columns="4" orderby="rand"]
My initial impressions on day of receipt. The principle feature I was prepared to pay for was a viewfinder, in this case EVF. Yes it's small but will be sufficient to frame the shot in bright sunlight and/or snow. Next a "sensible" zoom. Having just bought a Sony NEX-5 for different duties I knew that 100mm equivalent wasn't going to be enough for travel P&S. The LF1 offers about 200mm equivalent compared with the 90 ish of low zoom quality compacts. In any event I had rejected some well reviewed quality compacts due to the absence of a viewfinder. So a well balanced specification. I like the large control ring but still getting to grips with which settings to configure the ring for.
Initial impressions are that the LF1 is producing a good natural picture compared with the over-saturated picture (even in non-EXR modes) of the Fuji F750EXR which is being replaced.
I paid what I had to pay to get a quality compact with an EVR and mid-range zoom. Not...
