Pros: !.4 Leica lens is a step above the rest, for this price point of camera. Its super small size was its main selling point for me. The LX7 has an outstanding LCD that is easy to see. It has more external controls on it than others also, like aperture ring, manual/auto/macro focus slider and even aspect ratio. ND filter built in, is a nice, if not necessary inclusion with a 1.4f lens. Everything feel solid and well thought out. The flash pops out with authority and feels solid once ready to fire. Picture in RAW at 100 ISO almost rival my DSLRs.
Cons: LCD is not articulating but is large and has almost a Million pixels. The EVF is sold separately and is quite expensive but would make it larger. ISO over 100 seems noisy to me but I am super picky about that and I don't think that's unusual, for this size of sensor. Battery seems short lived per charge but its not much bigger than a book of matches. The ND / manual focus button seems a bit flimsy but that might just be because the other parts feel so solid.
Other Thoughts: I took a long while picking this out. Weeks maybe. Only the Sony RX100 seemed to be better at this size but it was far more costly. Leica sells almost the same camera but again, for much more cost. This seemed like a good mix for my needs of size, quality and cost. If you are looking at this camera, it's size should be its main selling point I think. You can get more camera for the same cost but it will be bigger. The extra you may pay for the red dot, is an endless debate and I can't help there. The LX7 gets outstanding reviews at reputable sources and I can understand why. It is not without flaws but for the size and price, I am more than pleased with this small shooter!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid CF card connection that works every time. Cheap and reliable.
Cons: SD slots seem flimsy and makes me nervous every time I plug one in it. Never quite sure card is going in straight or seated properly with SD. Only USB 2.0
Other Thoughts: It does work great but a click or a spring loaded mechanism for SD cards would be much better and worth another 5 bucks or so if it had that. The CF card slot is the same way but it is much more solid feeling when it is in all the way. If most of your use will be with CF, this is great. I keep a 32MB CF card parked in it when it is not in use to keep out dust and anything else that might want to ruin my day.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Flylink SC41 Mini DV DVR Hidden Video Camera Recorder Spy Sunglasses
Pros: They sent a nice 110v to USB charger with them. They sent a nice case with them ( semi-solid with a zipper ). They take good pictures. They only cost 20 bucks. Someone even emailed me to make sure I got them and check that I was happy with them.
Cons: They don't take broadcast quality movies. Sound is not recorded in 5.1. The sound is really bad but it does work.
Other Thoughts: Mine skip about 1/10th of a second every 10 or 15 seconds but it might be from the cheap Micro SD card I used. I was not disappointed. I didn't Think this would replace a $1200 HandiCam. Its a fun, cheap novelty, great for a kid or the like. There are company's that make a $300 pair and I bet they are a better choice for some.READ FULL REVIEW
