The New DMC-LX5 Image-Sensor

Postby Detail Man » Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:09 pm

Some "raw" (RW2) image files from Panasonic DMC-LX5's (with the same shot also shot as a DMC-LX3 RW2 for "raw"-level comparisons) are starting to emerge at the DPR Panasonic Talk Forum.

Some folks have been posting images from DMC-LX5 RW2s processed using Lightroom 3.2.

I have been using the (updated) Silkypix DS 3.1.22 SE that ships with the DMC-LX5 to "raw" process some of the test-shots, and have posted the results on the same thread ("side-by-side", so to speak, along with with the same test-shot also taken with a DMC-LX3).

For those who might be interested in what the new Panasonic DMC-LX5 image-sensor has going for it, see: ... e=36178149

Regards, DM ... :P

I am way late to this party, but this is some absolutely wonderful work. Not only the images themselves, but all the information on processing you have provided. I just recently acquired an LX3, and will have to try a demo of DxO myself. The 1MP comparison crops were very telling, I never imagined that a compact camera could produce something like the final DXO output (well, I guess I mean capture the raw data that gets converted into that final output.)

It is quite easy to see your appreciation, love and patience for nature in these images.

Thank you for your kind words! The thanks should more rightly go to the beauty to be witnessed in Nature, and the "machinery" that makes these nice things possible. All that I personally contributed (above $630) is the time, patience, and tenacity to stand in/at the right places/times, push the right buttons on the machines, then find and polish the "gems" that emerge! ... :P

Check out the new (full 16-bit processed) versions of my most recently posted images at:

They look even better now after using full 16-bit processing prior to 8-bit JPG conversion!
