Hi folks, I'm an avid hike/trekking/backpacking photographer. Never leave home without a camers in the hip belt pocket or a cargo pocket. I've shot with an LX3/7 now for six years and have really struggled to get grass, flower fields, and pine branches to come out if they are in the foreground of an image. This is under good shooting conditions with sunny skies (i.e. bright directional light). Is this a depth of field problem that can't be overcome with this camera or any other small...
Hello everybody, I just got myself a brand new NEX-3N with 16-50mm SELP1650 lens to replace my Panasonic DMC-LX3 which I got in 2009 and which has done about 20,000 pictures since then. The idea was to get a compact camera with significantly better picture quality due to the bigger sensor, lower shoot delay and being able to zoom more quickly - the LX3's zoom is really slow.So when the NEX-3N was offered for €299 at redcoon.de, I spent a few evenings reading reviews and comparing cameras at...
Hello I'm a pentax shooter. I'm still using my K10D, although rarely, with prime lenses (31 & 77 Lims). In the last years I had very little time for photography, and I found compact cameras more comfortable for snapshots and traveling light. Not to mention that they make movies - and since I'm a father (four years since) ... this become an essential usage of a camera (before that, I didn't consider at all filming capabilities of a camera). In the last few month, after my compact Panasonix Lx3...
I"ve been toying with the idea of picking up a used LX5 to use for my landscapes and indoor low light shots,, this will be carried along side my old TZ6 used for the "general" stuff. Now I find a LX5 for £175, or a LX3 for £135,, so the question is this,, although the 5 has the extra zoom, is it worth paying the extra for the LX5, baring in mind I could use the £30 difference to buy a spare batt and filter adapter. Just wondered ??. Thanks for looking, rolandb
I'm just about to donate my venerable LX3 to my granddaughter as her first proper camera. Needless to say this gives me an opportunity to replace it. I've used the LX3 as an alternative to my SLR for family snaps and holiday stuff for several years and love the format. Now before I rush out and get an LX7 is there a LX9 in the offing? or has this model gone as far as Panasonic want to take it? I'd be interested in any insights from you guys in the know ! John
This is a question I'm hoping some existing LX7 owners can answer for me. I currently own the Lumix LX3, and have been very impressed with it. It has served me very well for the last few years, but I feel I'm starting to run up against some of its limitations, and am starting to look at the possibility of upgrading to the LX7. I tend to do quite a lot of action photography (roller coasters) and one of the things that I feel is really limiting me on the LX3 is the burst. I tend to shoot...
Hi everybody, I have searched this forum before posting this question. It seems I am not the only one who has noticed this before, but there wasn't any thread that specifically addressed this point, so here it is. I have just started shooting with a V1, but what I have noticed is that it consistently overexposes, by anything from +1/3ev up to +1ev, when I am shooting outdoors in bright sunlight, at base ISO (ISO 100), using matrix metering. This is independently of the lens used, and the same...
A few years back I decided I was tired of having terrible pictures of everything and I stop using a free digital camera (made by GE) I had won in a raffle. I consulted this website which was having a Point and Shoot roundup coincidentally at the time, and ended up buying a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. A camera which has a few minor quirks but otherwise I enjoy. I've since that time gotten married, and had my first child, a baby girl. I know that I'm going to be taking a lot more pictures, and...
