Hi all, I am trying to find a camera to use when I go on travels for climbing/travel. I used to have an Olympus XZ-1, as was very happy with it, but it got stolen. So now I am looking for a new one. I am on a limited budget, and have suggested the below cameras as I know I can afford them. TZ60, FZ72, NEX-3N (with 16-50mm), A3000 (with 18-55)mm, LX7.   While reading climbing blogs, I've noticed that alot of people recommend having some wide angle and zoom capabilities, which is why I've...

When reviewing pictures from a recent 'once in a lifetime' hike up half-dome (Yosemite), I noticed all the early morning shots (5am) were blurry, not something I'm used to with this excellent low-light camera. I then noticed the 'ND' indicator was on (lower left of the screen).  I've never used this feature in the 2 years I've had the camera, and can't imagine how it got set.  Regardless - I wanted to go back in time (though old pictures) and see when it first got set.  I could find no info...

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...

Okay, I actually have a mult-part question: For the first time since I acquired my LX7 (which is just over one year ago), I tried capturing fireworks this weekend at our city Independence Day fireworks display. I did not have a tripod with me. First mistake?? The black background was great, colors were great, dynamic range was surprisingly good. But I had to take them handheld. I tried using the "handheld night shot" as well as the plain "nightshot" settings in Scene mode. I didn't try...

The LCD attracts oil from the skin, quite often. It's just over a month old, but I'm wondering about wiping it so many times. I never put anything on it, other than an occasional Huff of breath, but the LCD is made to resist skin oils right? I know the Adhesive flexible protection films get old fast, and they must leave adhesive behind too, but I saw the Thin Glass ones for about $15.00 made to exact size, but there aren't many reviews for them. Can anyone here tell me about their experience...

I was just told that the new LX-7 that I was in the process of ordering a few minutes ago would not be returnable because it contains "hazardous material!"  Surely this is an error!  Has anyone run into this before?  Within the 30-day window, new cameras are returned routinely, right?  What would make the LX-7 an exception to the normal policy?

I've been looking for the right affordable carry-everywhere integral-lens compact with manual control and maximum image quality (I want weathersealing too, but all the 'rugged' cameras in my price range seem to sacrifice sharpness for toughness.).  I'd pretty much decided on an LX7 until I read some posts about the lens being 'horrible' when stopped down.  My primary use would be for landscapes (mostly of moving water), using a tripod, slow shutter speed, and stopped down for maximum...

Can anyone advise me, The slotted lugs are so small, I don't know what will fit in there, and still be strong enough. Some of those rope style, OPTECH Camstrap I think, looks so thin, can they be that strong? Another brand, by Rainbowimaging (I got the link here at dpr) it has a quick release, I don't know if that's too strong either. I think it's part of a set. The lugs are a small slot, and I think the round rope type is for a round lug. Is anyone here using something they are happy with,...

I asked this in the Panasonic forum and was told I should put it here instead. I did get one answer, but I think that was for the LX7. Anyway... I've looked all over and can't find the answer to this question. Can the GX7 take stills while recording video? The manual does say something about no stills during Creative Movie Mode, but I'm not clear on what Creative Movie Mode is. I've almost decided on the GX7 over the Olympus E-M10, but this is one point that tips the scale back in the...
