  • If money isn't a worry, I would strongly recommend renting them for a week each.  Money IS an issue for me, so I've occasionally rented lenses and cameras from Lens Rental online, and it has ...
  • That is sophisticated image-making with a small but highly capable camera.  Clearly, though, most of the capability is in the hands of the photographer!  Congratulations. Clearly, you have achieved ...
  • So did you actually modify the space to enhance the lighting?  Or did you find a place with beautiful lighting and wait for the right moment?  Either way, it is a gorgeous image with beautiful ...
  • Gorgeous timepiece, gorgeous image. Questions: 1) Did you process the image at all?  SilverFX or anything? 2) Do you know whether the hinge on pocket watches is typically at the 9 o'clock position? ...
  • Replied in B&W
    B&W, and tweak the contrast.   The strength of the image is the 3-D effect of the hills, and the contours are accentuated in monochrome.  Also, the foreground meadow is not overly interesting, but ...
  • Wonderful work overall -- a good eye in every image. I'm wondering whether a B&W version of the dog portrait would make the subject stand out a little from the background.  S/he looks regal.
  • Replied in D-Lux 7 ?
    As the original poster, I'll point out that my original post was made in April 2014, prior to the announcement of the D-Lux Type 109 or any successor to the D-Lux 6. I smile at the fact that ...
  • Funny you should mention your predictive powers.  I coach high school high jumpers, and I can often tell in the first 2-3 steps (of 7, 9 or 11) whether the jumper will end up clearing the bar.
  • I've been very interested in buying one, which would be my first compact camera in more than 6 years.  This discussion makes me particularly nervous, though, as we have three dogs and cats.  What ...
  • If I had an SL, I would do nothing but shoot and watch, shoot and watch, about 20 hours a day. I'd love to film a willow tree in a breeze... Does your Deception book still have a November ...
  • Beautiful images.  Whether straight out of the camera or processed, they show you have a real gift.  How did you ever get so close to the fox -- or, how much did you have to enlarge the image? By ...
  • How 'bout a picture of the set-up for those of us on the fence?
  • From this 2:15 tutorial it looks easy, and you don't need any fancy software. Note that this tutorial describes using a dedicated 4k still-photo process (which you can find in the menus), wherein ...
  • Overcooked a tad.  I doubt that the sky or the shrubs looked like in real life,  so it becomes a caricature -- an idea(l) -- of the view rather than a recording of it.
  • Replied in LX100
    After 50 years of photography, I'd happily adjust most of the controls myself.  Not so, for my wife and daughters...
  • Replied in LX100
    You won't get the most out of an LX100 if you use it in Automatic mode, but won't its automatic mode give better results than other compacts -- because of the sensor and lens? Just wondering.... ...
  • Replied in Leica d-lux 7
    Panasonic Rumors say that the new compact successor to the LX100 will be called the LX-15, so people don't know if it will be more like the D-Lux6, the D-Lux (109) or a new type entirely.
  • On the verge of buying a 109 -- though waiting to see if Photokina will bring its successor --  I find myself marveling at the premise that a Honda Civic or even a Toyota Camry be compared with a ...
  • Excellent images.  I particularly like the composition of the 3rd one -- it has a lot of depth, encouraging the eye to move from feature to feature. Were all images shot with a tripod?  If not, the ...
  • Created discussion thread What will replace the DLux 109?
    When do you think the DLux typ 109 will be replaced?  And what features do you anticipate?
