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

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...
