'However, for all its strengths, the camera's photos (and video for that matter) just aren't that good.'
'The camera's speed of operation is quite average but on the plus side the auto focus is one of the quickest in this test.'
'Unrealistic colour reproduction.'
'One slight issue we had is the fact thereÃ¢??s a dearth of direct controls on the body, frustratingly so even for ISO for example; the fast routes into flash, exposure compensation and macro shooting are the norm, but while this is a feature-rich camera, a lot of its best bits are hidden in menus.'
'I like the idea of this interface, but the implementation is annoying, For instance, to change brightness, you must do the following: press Start/OK; arrow down to brightness; press OK; arrow up/down to adjust; press OK.'
'The most interesting Art Filters slow down operation (and make the movie mode virtually useless).'
'As well as the simplified controls and functions that may frustrate more experienced users who will be better off with an E-P1 or E-P2, some headline features have also been clipped.'
'In low-light situations--say, a fancy restaurant--the DMC-TX1 does a very good job of picking up detail, but images are still soft and lack sharpness, and you'll see some noise, but not enough to detract from the overall image quality.'
