I hope not! I'll definitely post some of my pics once I get the camera.

In anticipation of ordering the LX5 (and to be ready for when it arrives), I have ordered the following:

and this

I'm still on the fence regarding the auto lens cap replacement as it seems like dust can still get through. I guess I will decide on that once I order the actual camera. tongue_smile.gif

Lovely case to match your wife,er...I mean your Panasonic.

I found the cases to be spendy so I settled for the handgrip,which has a centered screw plate.

The LCD cover will prevent that "oops,I shattered my screen...damn"

The auto lens cover screws on and seals up tight,believe me.

Look forward to some sample pictures,ianmedium sure has the manual B&W down pat.

Wow! That is superb! Can you tell us what settings you had the camera on?

Gosh...good question. IIRC...Aperture Priority, Macro AF, F/2.1, Exposure 1/100 sec, Iso 80 on a sunny day.

 

Glad you liked it.biggrin.gif

That's great, thank you. I wanted to know to try something similar myself. AP is my favourite mode on the camera. It is surprisingly good at Bokeh at F2

Anytime! AP is also my favorite mode to use on most cameras but the LX5's quality is really top notch! I'm fond of the Bokeh as well.

Yeah, the lens and sensor are pin sharp considering the size. Have you tried the full manual mode yet? I have found it the easiest to use in any other compact camera I have used.

Spent most of the first shots using AP. I will save manual mode for another time as I am having too much fun with AP at the moment. Can't wait to take it on a road trip or to a nice place.
 

 

EDIT: This camera is awesome! Maybe this should be my new avatar....

WoW-the Bubbler looks like she could give you a wee nip if you touched the screen...

Where do you host your photo files?

Goes to show it's not so much the equipment but who is behind the tool !

Appreciate the camera settings,keep it up so a daft camera punk like me can scrounge up some info.

Very nice shots.

Thanks! I don't host my photos anywhere actually and I am fairly new to this. I am by no means an expert much less a dedicated amateur....more like a daft camera punk such as yourself. tongue_smile.gif

 

While I do own an DSLR, it was more a spur of the moment purchase a long time ago and mainly use it for family occasions.

 

I was however thinking of setting up a Flickr account or something like that as my family is always bugging me to see my pictures. For now, I have only posted a few on my facebook account and some here.
