Leica D-Lux 5 & Lumix DMC-LX5 (TAVES Toronto Audio show - Nov.01, 2013 - Photos)

Today,I caved in after posting such a miserable picture in the "How Many Guys Cook" thread.

Knowing that Vistek Camera in Mississauga had only one unit left,I plunked down the coin for the new Baby Leica point and shoot.

Taken with a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant smart phone:

500

Here is the Galaxy with my Hi-Def screensaver snatched from the "Show pictures of your glowing tubes" thread,shot with the Leica in auto-macro,no flash:

500

Here is the Galaxy with the new http://powerampapp.com music player,shot with the flash in the same mode:

500

This Android music player makes the external speaker output substantially louder and it has a good preamp/equalizer built in.

Since getting this phone,I use it with the JH-13's and PowerAmp player and have been good to go.

Taking such poor camera shots with a cellphone spurred the decision to get the Leica and so far,I really love it!

New learning curve,been away from good photography since 35mm days...

I own a DLUX-4. It's a great cam and yours looks like a great improvement over the DLUX-4.

 

Enjoy your new cam!

Thank you, If you see other pictures I post on the forum you can certainly tell that this one is 99% the greatness of the camera and 1% the user! It was windy that day (New Years day) and around -35 with wind chill so I was even more impressed the little Leica performed so well. You can see what looks like cloud on the middle peak, it was in fact the wind blowing the snow off!

 

If anyone wants to take the same picture when in Banff it was at the bottom of Bow Falls just at the bend in the Bow river. A ten minute walk behind me in that location is the Banff springs hotel.

Here is another that I took quickly due to the extreme cold. I had set the excellent controls on the Leica to give me a good depth of field. Hope you like it!

All I did with these photo's was to make them black and white and adjust the contrast a little, oh and crop them. Oh forgot, on the first one I put a little agfa tone that the free photo edit program I use has in it's features

Well, got my 5 and it is so much better than the 3. Love the fast lens and how easy it is to use manual controls. Bokeh is far superior to the 3 and screen a delight to use. Love that it comes with lightroom 3 as well. Gonna have fun with raw!

Macro is amazing. Just got to get a new case as the one on my 3 is too small!

Is this a manual camera?
