LX7 as a B&W travel camera

I think my LX7 acquitted itself quite well on my Missouri trip earlier this month. I decided to shoot B&W jpeg exclusively. Since I'm 99% a raw shooter, I felt like I was performing without a net.

I use my LX7 as an ISO 80 camera. I decided to go +1 stop because B&W in any digital camera handles noise a little better than color.

Technical info: ISO 160, monochrome, contrast +1, sharpening +1, NR 0, all with a Lumix 37mm polarizer.

This may be a last hurrah for my LX7 if the LX8 with it's 1 inch sensor ups the game as much as many think it will.

Enjoy. These really are much better if you click to view.
