Thanks - having seen inside the thing though I would NEVER try opening up a working camera.
In the interests of honesty, midway through yesterday it stopped turning on with a "Zoom error" message....
The ISO limit setting is simply the highest ISO the camera will allow itself to pick when making a shot on any kind of auto mode.
Once it reaches this ISO limit its only choice to get the exposure...
"Extended ISO" lets you pick from a couple of even higher ISOs that are a bit bad quality wise but can be useful in a push. You wouldn't want most people to use them, so they are off by default,...
I guess the real test will be when I take some more shots and upload them and find that they're covered in dust and out of focus.... but at least the grinding noise has stopped and things look...
Oh yay, oh yay.
I am now going to drink some wine.
It actually works.
Shaking like a leaf.
Thanks for the feedback people, I appreciate all of it.
I found a service manual for the LX7...
Taking pictures of the kids on the beach in the dark, walking backwards, not looking where I was going, tripped over slippy rocks, crashed down into more rocks, swollen aching wrist, dead...
You'll make many more like that before you nail it.
As for your image you're blatantly focussed either nowhere near, or way past infinity. Sorry.
You hit infinity WAY before the camera stops...
Thanks for those - I'll take a look at them when I get home!
It's such a niche subject there's very little out there...
All good information to take onboard next time I print.
Seems like I need to be doing much more work on the images before printing.
I did make a nice-ish print where the sky looked...
Selling due to downsizing to compact camera system.

Used, but perfect condition, never dropped, kept in...
ps. Looking at things like this:
The sky is in fact pretty light in most of cases - there are next to no deep blacks except in the...
Can someone give any pointers as to where to start with printing landscape astro photos.
The kind I'm talking about are 30 second, highish ISO shots with a foreground in silhouette and point stars...
I know. :(
On the one hand they're sat in a bag NEVER getting used.
On the other hand, once I sell them, I'll never be splurging that much on lenses again so they'll be gone for good.
Upgraded from an LX3 after dropping it one too many times.
It's just sooooo much more refined than the LX3 was, and I loved the LX3.
I've only been out with it once so far (last night) so...
I loved my LX3 - loved it more than words.
But after one final tumble down rocks onto concrete at the weekend it has taken it's last - gone to meet the big camera in the sky.
Now, anyone know where to buy one of these 37mm (I assume) 10 stop ND filters in the UK?
Panasonic LX3 - still churning out the photos ever after having been driven over in a field, dropped on concrete, taken apart and generally abused.
Doing it again I should have had the camera...
Not entirely related, but this chart implies that at 37mm you're looking at a 0.5mm pitch..
Wonder if that's true of the LX7...???
Does anyone know what "pitch" the 37mm adapter is for the LX7
I was about to buy a 10 stop filter but then noticed there were two versions - one with a 0.5 mm pitch and one with a 0.75mm...
