‘If you take out the pointless popularity quotient (which is also by far the most heavily weighted item, for no apparent reason), the cameras score Canon S95 = 198.3 vs. Panasonic LX5 = 197.2 – a statistical dead-heat, which is actually a more accurate reflection of the relative merits of these two cameras, which is why they are so hard to choose between.’
I’m leaning towards the S95, even if the overall scores are virtually identical. This is because of better image quality (the be all and end all of digital photos – 10&better than the LX5), better colour depth (more than 70% more colour recognition), smaller, thinner, lighter and last but certainly not least, it’s around £100 cheaper!
Listing all those qualities, it really looks like a no-brainer.
There is definitely a speck of dust of something similar which has got into my camera!
Dark spots in the top left area!
It’s really annoyingly producing the same exact marks on every picture I take. I’ve tried cleaning all the mirrors and lenses both inside and out, but nothing has changed. I’m going to have to take it to the local London Camera Exchange shop to see if they can have a go!
