Panasonic Lumix (DMC-LX1PP)

Pros:
1. Frame Aspect Ratio Setting. This is by far my favorite setting. You can choose 16:9 widescreen, 4:3 standard monitor, or 3:2 for those standard photo size prints. My favorite is the 16:9 just because I have never had the chance to frame SO MUCH in my pictures before. You have more room to work with, especially in close quarters.

2. JPEG, TIFF, RAW. Once again, this camera gives you more options. Using Raw mode even creates a JPEG in addition to the RAW.

3. Image Stabilization. Adjusts lens to counter your movements, letting you take pictures at low shutter speeds and at high zoom.

Cons:
1. Focal Range reduced when not in native 16:9 aspect ratio. (16:9 28-112, 3:2 33-132, 4:3 37.5-150)
2. Lens is not threaded so you can't change lenses.
3. Sensitive to noise. I haven't noticed much, but all the reviews mentioned it.
