Rome Train Station

Here’s a shot of the train station in Rome. The dark train station. The Lx3 took a good picture  given the low light. On paper, the GF1 with it’s larger sensor and changeable lenses, should be the choice. Then I look at a shot like this and wonder how much of a difference would I see?

Even in Rome, around midnight, things start to slow down a little.

    Hi Chris, The LX3 has done well here and the truth is you probably won’t see much difference between it and the GF1 unless you pixel peep or print the picture big i.e. A3 and larger.

    Thanks Alan!
    They both sort of have that retro look to them. Obviously, the Gf1 allows for lens expansion but even with a 14-42 the “cute” pocketable camera is gone.
    Fascinated with your post production comments. I’ve never understood the histogram. Will have to look into it. Do you ever just shoot jpegs with the Gf1? Are they any good?

    You’re exactly right Chris, the GF1 demands the pancake lens if you want to keep it compact, but even then it’s still a fair bit chunkier than a proper compact camera. If you’re after a proper pocketable high quality camera then the LX3 (or maybe Canon S90?) is the way to go.

    I think the histogram is worth gaining an understanding of to get the best pictures out of a digital camera, especially when using an LCD screen outside in bright sunshine, where it can be difficult to judge the exposure with the picture alone. I’ve never shot jpegs with the GF1 because I’m used to raw, but I might just need to give it a go and see how they look. I might do a comparison and blog the results.
