Review of Panasonic LX7 - Part 4

This is the first time after a long hiatus that I have taken night shots with a compact camera. Back then, night shots in Auto mode were always a disaster. Here is how the LX7 performs. All the images below were taken in fully Auto mode, handheld. I have not compared it with any other cameras. Such may be the standard capability of modern day compacts but I do not know for sure.

Verdict: I can only say I am impressed with the night shot capability. It captures a night scene as it actually looks, rather than trying to over-brighten a night scene with extremely high ISO or extremely slow shutter speed. My guess is that it has something to do with automatically invoking the Night Scene mode when it detects one.
