I have read your message several times and I don't understand what you are looking for.
The three cameras you listed have little in common.
LX3 is aimed at people who want better low light performance, and very little optical zoom.
FZ28 is aimed at people who want a lot of optical zoom.
TS1 is aimed at underwater usage.
...The TS1 does not have great picture quality:
I need suggestion on what compact digicam that I should buy with the requirements as follows:
1. great at taking texture's detail of any kind whether it's food or flowers, because I am using it for my animation texture.
2. preferably good at taking a landscape picture (equipped with wide angled lens)
3. preferably waterproof because I will be using it for a lot of traveling.
4. good images result with good contrast and saturation.
I'm an amateur at photography so do forgive me if I am asking for an impossible digicam =P
Right now I am setting my eyes on Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, FZ28, and TS1.
But I am really really open up to any suggestions, and please tell me the pros and cons of your suggestions.
