Panasonic Lumix-LX5 Review [Part.II] - LX3 VS LX5: ISO



Following Panasonic Lumix-LX5 Review [Part I], Part II is a comparison between LX3 and LX5 in terms of noise level at various ISO settings. LX3 is reputed in its era, for its excellence in noise control within its own class. The LX5 attempts to build and improve on this success. The LX5 gains additional ISO 6400 and 12800, allowing the LX5 to be used in extremely low-light scenes.
The objective of this test is to determine how useful are the high ISO images for sharing on the internet.

Images below are shot handheld at wide and tele-ends, wide-open. Images are subsequently resized to length 1200 for most uploading onto file-sharing sites.
Note that images in 100% crop images will show much more significant differences in noise, but is really useful for large prints and cropping.

A Visit to Changi Village Hotel

Thanks to the company, I was given a free stay at Changi Village Hotel.
The hotel is not exactly a boutique hotel, it has had its glory, but they really ought to keep up with their maintenance of their rooms. I unfortunately had to change my room due to a defective shower.
On the whole, a decent place to get-away from the busy city life.
I particularly love the night swim on the roof-top swimming pool.






There is no need to take a boat ride.


Just go on the approximately 2Km board walk.






Some elusive self-shots. LOL


It was a good get-away and a good reason to queue at International Food Stall for their Nasi Lemak.
