My much loved LX3 started zooming in and out uncontrollably until a message came up asking me to turn the camera off and on again.  I did this but it didn't help and now I am receiving the error message in the title of my question.  Does anyone have any comments, suggestions, solutions?

I just upgraded from a Lumix LX3 to the LX7. Early on I lost the lens cap for the LX3. Needing to improvise,  I removed the trim ring and stuck on the plastic cap that comes on a tube of grease. I found that this was easier to put on and remove than the original lens cap.  It also protects the lens better.   I would like to do the same with the LX7, but I need to find a bigger soft plastic cap. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

Assuming there is no such thing as a dumb question - here goes: My first m4/3 - GX7 - is coming later this week. Is it possible to use the wide conversion lens from the LX5 or LX3 with it? If so, would I even want to, and what would be the result? Thank you, Cheryl

Hello all, I cannot seem to transfer the videos to my computer using Nikon transfer.  I know Panasonic provided software but I bought a new computer which is a sony vaio with window 8 which I hate and am in Asia without the Panasonic disk. I can transfer the photos no problem. When I plug my camera in to the computer I also cannot see the photos in the d drive.  I tried putting the sd card in the computer slot but it does not fit. Any  help out there?  My old LX3 had no problems...

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...
