Hi all.The LX3 seems like a great camera.I would like to ask if there is a difference between LX3K and LX3S because there is a big price difference on amazon.Thank you

Hello Themistoklisv,

The difference it's on the body colour.
K for Black model, and S for Silver

Thank you!!
I am really considering buying this camera.I think it delivers great photos and has many usefull features.I think panasonic has managed to solve the noise problem ( athough the Finepix F30 is still the best and much cheaper lacking features of cource ).It is a sheme that panasonic has produced such great cameras regarding features and optics only to be haunted by noise.

Do you thin Canon g-9 or G-10 is better than Lumix LX3.
For some reason I really like the lumix products and I would realy like to own one , but I was always dissapointed by the noise problem.
I currently own a Sony DSC-P12 :cry:

Here is p previe from amazon
NOISIER THAN A SLAYER CONCERT! My goodness this thing has trouble with dark lighting. Uggghhh. I wouldn't shoot this anywhere I didn't need sunglasses. 4 out of 10.

THE COLOR IS DECENT. An 8 out of 10.
OVERALL PHOTO QUALITY.
It does take good photos 9out of 10
MANUAL SETTING. 4out of 10
FLASH
Wow! 10 out of 10
BANG FOR BUCK 5 out of 10
OVERALL 6 out 10.
What do you think?I am really concerned about noise and lag.
I really like manual control but what is a must for me is quick responce time and good photos.

Oups!I think this a preview of Leica D-LUX 3 which is actually a panasonc LX2?
I would really like opinions about LX3 in regards to noise and lag.
Thank you

themistoklisv:
Even without shot once with the lx3, I assure, you don't be fighting with noise issues. (and believe me, I do have with lx2)
I don't know if it's correct from my side to invite you also to see also dpreview conclusions and test shots.


now
Gordon Laing:
forgive me if this is a beat out of topic, but:
you know I'm relativeness new to CameraLabs. And hey Gordon, what a great job you have here! Be one of your readers it's an honor.

For many years I read and follow with serious attention dpreview. When Panasonic launched lx3, I'm started to search for a review, and nothing.
The first I've found was in photography blog, and I appreciated the review (you know what I mean, we all like serious reviews and fair approaches)
The second was CameraLabs few days after. And "here it is..." (catch you) :D
In fact I found CameraLabs searching for an LX3 review!

Now as you know, I've read dpreview (more deep) review on the lx3.
Even take her "ambiguous" comment about this camera, the answers are all that, on they sample shots.
For me the lx3 manages long exposures very well. Even better, on my modest point of view, with diffraction issues. What astonishing results combining long exposures with fast high apertures.

Finally, your group family cameras, the way you see market ranges, and the video tours are the best!

Keep going Gordon Laing! :)

Cheers,

about the color silver and black version is there any differences (other than color) because I saw the price is quite different, around US$40.

I don't believe there is any difference other than colour. We often see different prices though due to supply and demand...

Sadly not. As far as I'm aware, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II is the only digital camera with a microphone input for its video mode.

and also the RAW, i read from panasonic website that it is not compatible with popular post processing software such as adobes and have to rely on its own raw converter which is not so good?

Are those true?
