Panasonic Lumix LX7 dash lines on over exposed areas?
9 months ago

Hello,

I've recently bought a Lumix LX7, so far all is good except one thing. In high contrast scenes, when a spot or area is over exposed some dashed lines appear on those areas only instead of just being a really white spot. I've never seen anything like this in any small portable camera I ever had.

Any ideas if the problem is the camera or just a something inherent to the particular model?

Here are two examples, please just look at the bright spots in the sky:

Thanks.

Cheers.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7

Yes, very odd. I think I will return the camera. I already tried with different apertures, ISO settings, etc, to no avail.

Thanks for your reply.

Then again, being punished that badly for blowing your highlights just might turn you into a better photographer!

If a blow a highlight with a mobile phone it will not add those lines. That is the point, not my skills.

It was just a bit of [attempted] humour on my part Motonet.  I wasn't criticizing your skills.

I think if it is blown highlights it would flash, streaks, no idea.

Fair enough, not that I mind being criticized, so far it's been the only way I found to learn

Cheers.
