Hi, everyone! I'm new in this forum :). I have a quick question: I love using a small compact camera (dmc-lx3), but sometimes I miss having a speedlight (indoor night). The built in flash is horrible in this situations, because it cannot be tilted to bounce. This camera has a hotshoe. I don't want to use my speedlights because they are heavier and bigger than the camera istelf! :P. And it will miss the point of being something compact to take everywhere. Do you guys know something like...

Got my new LX100 about a week ago to continue my LX3/LX5/LX7.  Really do love it.  I have a question for any of you who may have experienced this.  I noticed a funny thing today as I was shooting on full Manual Mode, outside, on a clear day.  I later tested the same thing indoors, with the same results.  I set the Aperture for f/2.8 initially, Shutter Speed to 1/2000, ISO was on Auto (ISO Limiting disabled) and field width was 24mm.  I was also shooting in Manual Shutter Mode.  When I...

I saw many threads in the past where they say that the colors ware off and dull with the LX3, but when you use natural colors in the menu, the colors came out quit good. I must say I'm very happy with that camera,  and I find that the images with my LX3 look better and sharper of with my LX5.

I recently purchased the Panasonic GM1 and am loving the images I get compared to my LX3. One question I have is about the HDR mode:  I took several pictures in HDR and many of them came out as double images.  I assume it is because I turned the camera off before it had finished processing the image.  Is there any way I can salvage these photos through editing or is all lost? These were shot in jpeg, not RAW.

I got a LX7 after an LX3 and have a question about exposure compensation in iA mode. On the LX3 there was a button for Exposure compensation and a scale -3 +3. I used to have it on -2/3 all of the time. The setting was kept after shutdown. On the LX7 there is a scale with no references at all (why ? Hard to see where you are).But worse: that seeting does not seem to be kept after switching the camera off/on. There is also an exposure compensation option under the Q.Menu, but that seems...

I'm ready to pull the trigger on a MFT camera.  I currently have a Panasonic LX3 and, being an avid backpacker/hiker/skier, have always loved it's light weight yet great picture quality.  I mostly use the wide angle 24mm equivalent since I shoot landscapes alot.  The LX3 does take great macros but, without an EVF, it's a matter of luck whether the photo will be focused or not. So, the question is what to upgrade to?  It has to be light enough for backpacking (I am a small woman) yet have a...

I have had this camera for a few years now and I shoot with the original kit lens as well as the 25mm Panasonic Summilux. The images of flowers are washed out, no matter what saturation setting I use. This is not in direct sunlight - I took the latest test at 7:45 PM today. The LX3 is somewhat better - same film settings. There are different options on the LX3 as you already know. The Summilux is absolutely sharp and is wonderful lens for the most part, but when I shoot flowers, the images...

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
