  • May be you can get some comfort: a particle that small on or near the front lens will have absolutely no impact on the optical image. It works as an almost infinitely small area of the lens ...
  • Please have a look here where the designing of the Pana LX100 is described in detail. As an addendum: the lens design and part of the data processing right off the sensor is Leica's contribution. ...
  • I think it's out of question that the D-Lux 109 isn't a "real" Leica like the M. The 109 is a result of the long-time cooperation between Leica and Panasonic. One could as well call it a disguised ...
  • May be you will not like my comment but I'll make it anyway. As a college student with limited financial means - I've been in this situation looong ago - I wouldn't spend a reasonable amount of ...
  • Replied in Eifel
    Well kept images of a highly beautiful and also quite magical part of our country. Please accept my excuse in case you found my contribution as hi-jacking your thread. This was by no means my ...
  • Replied in Eifel
    Thanks for the info. Just one remark: I've had my first 35mm camera (Zeiss Ikon Contina) in 1957. Therefore I can easily follow your argumentation. But having available the mentioned aides is quite ...
  • Replied in Eifel
    Clipped information is indeed lost. OTOH, since recovering the shadows is simple in post processing I'd even recommend -1 EV unless the histogram or the Zebra pattern do not indicate clipping of ...
  • Replied in LX100: Storm
    Gator, interesting shot. For me it shows how small and fragile even large man-made structures are relative to the power and the majesty of nature. Andreas
  • Well Roland, with all due respect towards Erik: forget about layers and all this very detailed suggestions. It's by no means neccessary to substantially improve your images but, OTOH, it will ...
  • This is an extremely helpful advice. The Adobe products (I'm using PSE15) are indeed easy to use and - not always known - also highly suitable for JPGs. I've tried almost all of the other ones and ...
  • Roland, you ar VERY well advised to improve you post processing skill. My images are indeed not out of the cam but processed with Adobe PSE with ACR. BUT, a large but: a certain sensor size ...
  • Roland, I've been in a similar situation. Having an Olympus XZ1 and despite the very good colors the tiny sensor did not allow for more than about IS0400. Upgrading to the Sony NEX6 with kit lens ...
  • Didn't anybody notice that the OP left this discussion quite some time ago? If you look onto his latest activity elsewhere he apparently decided that he would get no useful information concerning ...
  • A  compact camera with zoom is exactly what Leica does not manufacture. Being a Leica fan for the mentioned highest quality products combining optical and mechanical competence (my pair of binos ...
  • That's interesting. May be it depends upon where you live. In Germany since a long time - I don't recall correctly but at least 6 months or more - Leica offers only a three months free trial to ...
  • Having the D-Lux 109 since its release I can fully concur with your opinion. AFIK, the free Lightroom ( I still got one) isn't available any more. Also your comment about the sensor is correct: no ...
  • Replied in FastStone
    Just a suggestion: I've also been using successfully FastStone for editing my JPGs. With the purchase of the D-Lux (109) I switched to RAW processing with Adobe PSE (ACR). FastStone still is ...
  • What you are describing looks like field curvature. Very strange, because nobody else has reported this before. And the D-Lux doesn't show it either. Sometimes this can be corrected by adjusting ...
  • Gator, you have for sure a good look for unique motives. Well seen and well performed. Andreas
  • My D-Lux (aka LX100) displays no optical distortion in the EVF. What kind of optical distortion do you have noticed? Negative (Barrel) or Positive (Pincushion) or Field Curvature? Or are you ...
