The LX5 is crammed with features that photo-savvy users will love, but performance runs hot and cold.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Comparison

The Samsung TL500 is an impressive camera at an affordable price. (The camera launched at $449.99, but can currently be found for much less.) It has most of the manual controls that you might desire and some really impressive performance to back it up. The TL500 had one of the best noise scores we've ever seen and followed that up with incredibly good sharpness and a decent stabilization performance. The real Achilles heel for the TL500 is video; users shouldn't expect to get fantastic video from this camera.

Compared to the LX5, we can find very few compelling reasons to opt for the Panasonic model over the Samsung. The TL500 was the runner-up for our 2010 Selects Award for best compact point-and-shoot. And with good reason.
