Having difficulty finding Lumix digital camera reviews written for the common man?

You are not alone friend. The good news is there are a few out there if you are persistent. I think Lumix digital camera reviews are all written for the expert photographer crowd. It seems like the few reviews out there for the higher end models use terminology that the pros understand.

I consider myself a decent hobby photographer, and I understand most of the lingo. It does make a difference when I read the Lumix digital camera reviews though. They seem to key in on the most obscure features and capabilities of the cameras rather than discussing what most people want to know:

How good are the photos? How user friendly are the controls? How comfortable is the camera in the hand? Is it worth the price? What bonus features or accessories are included that I might not know about?

To me, these seems like basic points the vast majority of consumers would like to see discussed prominently in Lumix digital camera reviews. Apparently, Panasonic Lumix cameras are a favorite among the experts, and the Lumix digital camera reviews only talk to them. Well, if Lumix cameras are good enough for the pros, then why wouldn't I benefit.

The key is to skim the reviews quickly so you can find the broader reviews without spending a too much time reading overall. Normally, I stick to the well known expert review sites, but I have had better luck in the blogs on this subject. The blogs I have found give me straight forward basic information that goes a step beyond the data sheet by telling me how the cameras seem to perform in action compared to the claims by the manufacturer.

For instance, I found out that the Lumix LX3 is a great camera, but the Lumix LX5 improves on it slightly in every category. The LX5 also adds one particularly huge feature by including a hot shoe connection. Now the hot shoe feature is mentioned in most reviews, but what isn't included is the fact that many of the Lumix GF2 accessories will also work with the Lumix LX5. Now that is something I need to know if I am trying to decide on purchasing a Lumix LX5.

Other things I would like to see included in more reviews are explanations of some of the more advance features. Basically, what advantage these features will mean to the novice photographer and how to use them. I did find one review site for the Lumix LX5 that gave me just what I needed to know, particularly compatible accessories. Since it is uncommon to have a compact digital camera that can really utilize accessories like EVF, OVF, external flash, and other common image enhancement addons, I want to know what my choices are.

If you are having difficulty finding Lumix digital camera reviews written for the layman, take my advice and start skimming as many as you can. Eventually, you will find the ones that speak to you and answer the simple questions you have.
