Review Train (Panasonic LX5, Canon S95, SX30 IS, Nikon P7000, and other fixed-lens cameras)

We are breaking today's "Review Train" in two pieces so we can keep it to a readable size! In part #1, we take a look at fixed-lens cameras!

We start with the Canon S95 getting exercised at Serious Compacts and juxtaposed to the Samsung EX1/TL500. The side-by-side of the two cameras is quite telling in terms of body-size differences.

Next up, the Panasonic LX5 has a brand new review at CNet US, and it also has an ISO te^te-a-te^te with the Panasonic LX3 at Focus Numerique. As usual, be sure to note that FN makes available both the full size RAW and JPEG files of their comparisons so you can open them up on your favorite monitor and with your favorite pixel-peeping tools so you can analyze them on your own terms! I can still see Monet from my house? ;-)

Next up, the Nikon Powershot G7000 (aka Coolpix P7000) has an experiential photographer review with photographer Gianni Galassi.

Back to Canon, the G12 samples gallery at DC Recourse has been refreshed and the G12 will be the next review published there, probably by the end of the week.

Zoom! Zoom! Canon's 35X IS megazoom, the not-so-aptly named SX30-IS (how about SX35-IS?) got a new review at Photography Blog, which as usual, includes plenty of full-size real-world samples. More SX30 action, it has a field test at CNet UK.
