Adorama DMC-LX10 First Impressions

"Love this little Adorama DMC-LX10!"

I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I bought this Adorama Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

Adorama DMC-LX10 Final Thoughts

"Um wow, totally wrong."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Adorama's excellent system--wow! Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Adorama's excellent system--wow!

"Cheaper ones are ok."

I'm impressed with how Canon incorporated it seamlessly. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling.

Canon 180 Silver K2 Final Thoughts

"It takes great pictures."

The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. If you want to take bird pictures. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

What a really unique camera. The I3ePro SN800-PBK11 has many features which are very easy to use and get to. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new I3ePro SN800-PBK11. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

"The Leica 19022 works great."

For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. Manual focus would've been nice. Excellent two characteristics in a Adorama Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I am so impressed with this Leica 19022! I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold.

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. I would like a firmware update to fix that. Easy to use, great for simple pictures.

Canon PowerShot G5 X First Impressions

"The upgrade works fine."

They make it look like I know what I'm doing. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Canon PowerShot G5 X. The battery life is outstanding, lasted her whole two week trip with moderate use.

"So far I like it a lot."

I would like a firmware update to fix that. One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. Everything about it is solid and satisfying. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. Just ordered my soft box lights.
