What is your compact camera? I am considering Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100


Recommended Posts

This looks like a pretty sweet camera to carry, I own a Canon EOS SLR but the thing

is a little bulky to carry around all the time and kind of screams "please rob this tourist"...


This Lumix got a Gold rating on DP Review website




Any of you have one? If not, what compact do you like?

I got the LUMIX DMC-TZ60 before my last trip.

Easy to use. Easy to transfer photos to iPad. Great zoom.

Without the case, it will fit in my shirt pocket.


I'm definitely NOT a photographer but was very happy with my pics.

I also have a Nikon s9600.

One good thing about it is that it will wirelessly connect to your smartphone so you can use it as a viewfinder, and can also automatically transfer pics to your phone for safekeeping or uploading online without messing with memory cards and such.

I have the Panasonic LX-5, i looked at LX100 and think its to big to have in pocket.

I miss some zoom at my cam. And would prefer a even smaller cam then the LX-5 for point&shoot

I do have a Canon 60D to other stuff

This Pana or the Sony RX100 are both great small cameras .

Like the OP I have a Canon DSLR (1DX) which with lens and flash etc. is too bulky for general use. I bought a Canon G1X Mk 11 as a "carry around" and the quality of the image are brilliant. Good zoom range, F2 lens and even the built in flash is better than I expected. Now the DSLR stays in the studio and the compact is more than good enough for travel.

Sony RX100 Mk3 is my current preference, brilliant little camera!


Yes this, I have had a RX100 for years, it's my pocket camera, all iterations of these have gotten bigger and heavier.  I could not put the Mark 2 and up in a side pocket on my shorts. Having said that the specs on the last couple, well they have pretty incredible specs for such a small camera.


I think it's the Mark 2 that introduced Wifi, although you can get around this with a WiFi card.

Anyone have a suggestion for a new camera. I have today a Panasonic LX-5, i like it alot.

But, are there a smaller and similar camera in size, but with a larger zoom?

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
