LX3 on bicycle tour
Oct 3, 2009

I was very happy with the way the LX-3 preformed on my recent bicycle tour of Oregon. I kept the lens adapter ring on all the time with either a 46mm B+W UV filter or B+W polarizer to help protect the lens mechanism and lens from grim and rough handling.

I shot in the RAW format with the camera set on manual mode. I did find in processing the RAW images that I did not have the “headroom” or adjustment range I have come to appreciate with my D3 but with a proper exposure the quality of a LX-3 image was outstanding.

For those who are interested below is a link to my journal of the tour with images.

I would recommend the LX-3 to anyone needing a light weight compact camera that shoots RAW and has manual controls.
