The ups and downs of living with a teen

Panasonic Super Zoom Lumix Digital Cameras

As my husband is a photographer, and I work along side him with the business, although when using my phone to take pictures I am useless,  I do have an interest in photography and cameras.

Unfortunately, as our camera is a professional one and when out and about can get a bit bulky with the camera body and various lenses etc.  I started to think about getting a little camera that I could pop in my bag that would not take up much room and was easy to use.  Also one that I could use to take pictures for my blog, as I do not seem to get on very well with my phone camera. I came across and kept going back to the Panasonic Lumix Range, I am familiar with this range as my parents have a Lumix camera and find it really easy to use.

I know there are many brands that make cameras out there, and a huge variety of prices, and would always tell anyone to do your research, read reviews and go for the best camera your budget will go too.

Whilst searching I kept coming back to Lumix and have narrowed my search down to 4 cameras.

cm1
LUMIX CM1

The LUMIX CM1 is a little bulkier than others, currently on offer for £399.  The Lumix CM1 offers a huge sensor that captures stunning photos.  It is in fact a communications camera as it also can be used as a phone and runs on android.

The Lumix LX100 is currently on offer for around £500.  The Lumix LX100 offers excellent manual controls, great image quality and range.

 

lx7
LUMIX DMC-LX7

The LUMIX DMC-LX7 is currently on offer for around £260.  The LUMIX DMC-LX7 offers excellent lens and fast aperture, loads of shooting features.

LUMIX DMC-LF1

The LUMIX DMC-LF1 is the cheapest of the cameras for around £160.  The LUMIX DMC-LF1 offers wide zoom range, good image quality, built in electric view finder and wifi connectivity.

Here are 4 that I would love, I suppose it does really depend on budget and what you want from a camera and what you intend to use it for. Ultimately with anything photography related the choice will be left to my husband, but I really do need a small camera that I can carry around and is easy to use.  These all fit with what I would use it for.

Which would you choose, money not being a factor.

Although this is a collaborative post with Panasonic, we are currently looking for a smaller camera like this, for me to use.

  1. oh interesting post and a good timely one as I need to treat myself to a new camera and I know nothing about them I just need it to take amazing pictures as I am a novice

    1. I need a small one to pop in my bag that takes good pictures, are professional one is just too big at times when out for the day, and I don’t seem to be able to take decent pictures on my phone.

  2. I thought the CM1 looked really small in the picture, but that does look like an awesome camera. I have a cheap lumix superzoom which worked great for me but I’ve now invested in an Olympus Pen to take out and about with me which I am excited to use x

    1. I want something small, all of these have some great reviews, for work my husband loves Nikon and we are also looking for a second camera for work as well, but this is just something to pop in my bag and go

  3. Over the years, I have tried a lot of different compact cameras. In the early days, we all thought 3MP was fantastic and now my phone does better than that. I keep returning to Panasonic as I find they are the most robust of all the brands I’ve tried. I don’t really need a new camera right now but I hate my current phone so I’m tempted by the Lumix CM1. I’d be interested to hear which camera you eventually decide to buy.

    1. My husband is a Nikon man for his work camera, but he is impressed and has brought Panasonic for small compact cameras for the kids and helped recommend one to my parents. I quite like he sound of all the ones I have mentioned.

  4. The Lumix LX100 looks like the best option out of the lot, since buying my first camera and experimenting I have learned that my personal preference is something with a lot of manual functions and more control suits me the best.
