Hello, Great to be part of this group. I was looking for a video camera to use for some interviews I have to conduct. Since I am not going to be using it that much I was looking for a reasonable priced camera. So what I found was a Lumix Lx7 Optical 3.8 Black Dmc-Lx7-k. Seller wants 125 euro and says it's in mint condition. My questions are: 1. Does this camera take a mic since I heard that the built in mic is not always the best when taking videos especially interviews (my camera will not be...

I teach seniors how to use their iPhone and iPad. They often come to my class thoroughly confused and I try and help them make sense out of an already confusing subject. Today's Covid situation makes face-to-face meetings impossible, so I use Zoom. For their best experience, I would like to use my LX 7 as a camera focused on the iPhone screen. As it is set up that way the Zoom screen would show the iPhone screen and my hand coming into the shot to click on an icon that I want to talk...

Hello I'm interested in buying a Sony Xperia 5 II. In Europe, it's even 5 G. The main reason: I want to reactive an older hobby with photography. I've had Pentax SLR's but they were too heavy and swapping lenses wasn't necessarily an enjoying experience. I still own some good compacts (Pentax Mx1 and Panasonic LX7) but sensor wise, they are dated. It seems that the role of older compact cameras has been adopted by smartphones with good photo capabilities, and, as far as I understand, Sony...

Hi everyone, When the COVID 19 finally abates I want to get back into overland/back country travel into La Ruta Maya - archaeological photography in the Peten of Guatemala.  The Panasonic LX100ii/and or Leica DLUX 7 is one of the options I'm giving serious consideration.  I have the entire Nikon DSLR system - lots of bodies, lenses etc. - big, heavy obvious, and I'm 75 yrs. old - don't need a 40 lb. backpack to haul around.  In the past I used an LX7 - good results for street, but sometimes...

Been reviewing old pics from the LX3 and LX7. They were such nice, handy cameras for travel, low light and street shooting. I'm quite familiar with the specs and reviews, but what do real users think of their LX10 experience? Will I enjoy it as much as those old favorites?

I just received my new RX10 IV yesterday. I have two dumb/naive questions: The camera came with the lens hood on in reverse direction. It seemed so tight I was afraid to apply too much force in unscrewing it. It finally sort of “miraculously” released and unscrewed easily from there. I  screwed it on in the forward direction and then had the same problem removing it later - namely trying with some force to remove it a number of times and then it just sort of suddenly releases. Is there...

I have just noticed that my LX7 doesn't seem to offer the option to save raw in iA mode, only jpeg. I use auto as it's sometimes just easier, but it's a little irritating tht it doesn't offer raw - or is there a trick or hidden setting somewhere? Fine in A. S and M (only modes I've played with so far). Thanks Malcolm --Want to take snapshots? Get a nice phone. Want to do photography? Get a nice camera.

Hi guys, I'm hoping that some of you can put me straight regarding getting the best from my TG-5 when I'm trying to take macro shots. I keep hear / reading about how good this little cam is at doing macro, but all I'm ending up with is c++p. The camera is tripod mounted and where possible the 2 sec timer is used, although in focus stacking I know you can't set that so I try to be as gentle as possible when pressing the shutter. Now first pic is in microscope mode but nothing in focus ?? The...

Hi guys, Just wanted to ask a question ( or two ) aimed at LX7 owners / users regarding "extras". My travel "combo" is the LX7 & TZ70, these two fit my needs and have done so for quite a while now, and these are carried in a small (now very old) shoulder bag. Now, as the LX7 gets 95% of my shots, when I'm walking it's carried in my hand with the LVF2 + adaptor tube fitted so I can mount an use either the LWA52 18mm wide con lens or a circ pol filter. Now my question / questions are (...
