    Most serious compact within 250 Euro budget

    Hey There, A good friend of mine wants to upgrade his compact camera and (of course) I adviced him the LX5, but that was slightly too much beyond his budget. His applications will be typical family pictures as well as movies of young kids and his wife will for sure only use iA icw out of...

    What will your next (photographic) purchase be?

    Nice photo's of nicely priced compact camera. Can't they glue a plastic bag arround it and call it waterproof for less than 300 Bucks?

    Samsung Samsung's Big Ambitions

    Samsung is indeed a booming company in a booming country: - Nikon and Canon are having serious trouble in a troubled country Personally I foresee Samsung to for example buy Pentax to fight the Japanese camera industry - It will take time, but Samsung has the money to "buy" time...

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    Nice movie!!! I am indeed thinking about a cheap ( / reasonably priced) ultra compact camera that simply can't break down. - IQ is less important (I use K-x for that kind of stuff) and with LX3 experience I am also OK to sacrifice tele zoom (but love to have wide angle). - Less Mega pixels...

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    Funny but technically understandable, that means besides point 4, can you tell us what you mean there? I actually don't understand why it is so diffult to make good water/dirt resistant camera, especially if the lens is not moving on the outside. - start with limiting the external openings...

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    The Pentax W90 seems to be a reasonable underwater camera as well (cheaper and cool macro feature)

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    Would my K-x (icw with smaller lens like the 18-55 mm kit or new 35 mm F.24 lens) fit in such bag? - But it indeed kind of puts an end to a lot of the fun, but so will the TS2 (e.g. no DoF control and noise limiting low light applications without flash). - In case my LX3 dies, it wil be a...

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    I was more thinking about a compact that I always take with me and if we (family with young kids) unannounced (or planned) end up at the beach or swimming pool then I can still safely use it. Taking pictures from within the pool/lake/sea is secondairy priority, to the camera not dying on the...

    Micro 4/3 Is it worth it to fix a sentimental favorite? If so how much?

    My laptop monitor is too dirty to see the problem :smile: ... - But dirt inside lens sounds bad, the advice to have the dirt stick to the barrel genious!!!

    Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious?

    Already owning LX3 and K-x and on the beach in Japan, scared to use my camera's while playing with sand and water, my mother telling my daughter she can get a camera for her birthday, I thought: - Which waterproof compact camera can be called (most) serious? Probably it will be too...

    Pentax Why I bought a second DSLR instead of a mirrorless compact

    You are a little ahead of my in time, but made a comparable decision. - I already own LX3 for compactness, bought a K-x recently and think the K-5 is a sweet DSLR, but also the GF2...
