May I start my first post by wishing everyone a very happy Christmas. Due to persistent nagging by my wife that my pictures leave a lot to be desired I have decide to try to rectify the situation. I have read article after article on this camera and that camera. I believe I only have a problem with pictures in low/poor lighting. So I decided to try a few cameras out. Today I have used both a GX1 and an Olympus XZ-1 Now I know they are totally different types of camera but I thought it would be an interesting exercise. I choose the GX1 due to it having a good sized sensor and the Olympus as it has a fast lens 1.8 to 2.5 but a smaller sensor. Now I wasn't sure how the bigger sensor on the GX1 with a slower lens would compare with a smaller sensor with a faster lens on the XZ-1 Well I've been taking pictures all day long inside and I must say using the cameras own auto setup the Olympus pictures are far and away the better. I was very disappointed in the those of the GX1 being quite grainey. I've tried to adjust the GX1 settings but to be honest it hasn't made much difference. I did some shots using the flash but a lot looked as if the flash was overpowering the situation. As the GX1 in the UK is about twice the cost of the XZ-1 why should I spend double for a poorer performance, at least in poor light.? Comments gratefully received.
