A few days ago Panasonic released the update to Android 5 (Lollipop) for the Lumix DMC-CM1. Some readers were curious if the company improved the .JPG output of its Venus Engine. After a few tests I'm quite sure this is not the case. In some cases though, I seem to get better results using manual settings this time. What do you think?

In this post you'll see four scenes I captured with six different smartphone cameras in quite dull weather. Contenders are a few "classics" : Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 1520, from last year the prestigious Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and two "new kids on the block": the Huawei P8 and Samsung Galaxy S6.
In this post you'll see what I recently discovered in the results of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1. Considering the way I work with the device, it's quite a serious issue: the .JPG compression appears to be a lot worse when you use the Manual settings of the device.
In this post you will see three views on Warsaw, captured from the 30th floor of the Palace of Culture and Science in the heart of the city. On my way up, I brought the good old Nokia 808 PureView, the prestigious Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and both the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Huawei P8.
