Good: The Camera Notebook
Comment: It's not really the "action-blaster" and speed is not it's thing (unless you use this built-in programs which make me think and consider too much) But in manual mode, ISO 100, just autofocus, it is quite a good camera, especially if you want to be considered as hobby-photographer and don't want constantly this photos of the "no-photo-hand" . The quality fits to current pro standards most needed by print-media. But with one of these small little laptops my it is the perfect tool while travelling where the odd pro-gear is just too much weight.
Good: Build Quality, lens.
Comment: Been looking for a new compact easy to carry camera for a while. Went into Comets to buy something else and thought I'd look at cameras. Glad I did, they had this marked up at Â£125. Snapped it up in a heartbeat. Fantastic quality photos and as many features as you will ever use on normal day to day photography. The zoom is a bit limited but the Leica lens and f2.0 apature far outweigh this. Great little camera and a bargain too.
Good: image quality
Bad: battery ife
Comment: I too own a Nikon D90, but the lens on the D-Lux 5 is awesome. You can call it red dot mania or a Lumix or anything else, but the lens is a Leica! With three aspect ratios to choose from, I really like the wide angle feature it provides. The thumb wheel on the back of the camera is also very nice for changing aperture or shutter speeds.
Good: Superb lens resulting in superb pictures!
Comment: This wee beauty produces some fine photography with the bright and sharp lens â€“ I have taken photographs in the dark using only the available light (moon and street lighting) and I got superb results, even better than my Nikon D90!
Bokeh is great when used at the widest angle â€“ 24 mm at f2 produces amazing work. Just check out the D-Lux 5 Flickr groups work too see what I mean...
