Thanks. You are much too kind.

 

As an aside to help you decide, do keep in mind that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the same camera as the Leica D-Lux 5 but can be purchased for under $450! If you don't need lightroom and take good care of your stuff, I would recommend you get the Panasonic over the Leica.

LFF,this last set of photographs I first viewed on my Samsung Galaxy S cellphone screen and they were stunning on the small AMOLED screen,in particular the last arcade photo.

Just so we don't lose your contribution here,I have renamed the thread to include the Lumix camera,perhaps we can get some more pics from other sharpshooters.

I know it's a drag but I would like to know the settings on some of your shots,so ianmedium and myself can keep up!

Thanks for renaming the thread! Glad to know the pics look nice on cellphones.  biggrin.gif

 

Let me know what pictures you would like to know the settings of and I'll shoot them over to you.

Just a snap from the Galaxy S,I found the case for $124,picked it up today in Buffalo.

Fits like a glove,no worries about outside shots now,it's a really nice case for sure.

Been using a Canon Ixus 100 IS for a couple years and now i'm looking for a step up in the chain smile.gif

Would this litlle beauty be a significant one?

(i'm also considering the Nikon D7000, but my rational side is telling me that i won't need such a powerful camera, although it's quite tempting..)

Why don't u look at Micro 4 3? Great new lenses are coming out (PanaLecia 25mm f1.4, Oly(Prograde) 12mm f2.0, Oly 45mm f1.8) plus there are already some great lenses (over 20  i think). You can pick up an EPL1 with zoom kit for like 400 bucks new, which is super cheap and its not much bigger than a Cannon G12. If u want to step up, there is pro grade glass coming out and by the time you are ready for a new body there might be a pro one out if u want to get that deep into photography. I can carry my EPL1 with 17mm f2.8 and 40-150mm f4-5.6 around with me anywhere. Take a look at the cameras.

If I was in the US...here in EU the price for an EPL2 for example is 629€=886$ , which is the price for an entry level DSLR, go figure?
What would you do then?

As promised,today I got outside in the brilliant sunshine for the kickoff of the Brampton Farmers Market.

All the Main St. in my area is closed for the weekend to vehicle traffic,so it is nice to meander down the street and mingle in the crowds.

Along with the opening day of the Market,is the International Indian Film Academy Buzz Festival,I guess that means Bollywood,so the town square will be packed all day.

Finally they have the Brampton Flower City Parade rolling down Main St. from 2-3:00 pm,so the neighborhood is a swarm of activity today.

Sun shining into my one good eye is brutal and the LCD screen on the back of the camera hardly visible in full sun-fully aware of the need for a viewfinder now!

Adobe Lightroom would likely fix these up some but here they are right off the SDHC card:

Terrible shot directly into the sun,as bad as it gets...
500

Bollywood Stage,maybe I'll watch those dancers later...
500

Filled my container up with fresh,local foods 5 minutes from my door!
500

Stopped in for breakfast at the local Churrasqueira,they were getting the pit ready for the lunchtime chicken spits.
500

Beautiful original neighbourhood home,surrounded by urban growth.

All shot on 'A' mode 'cause I still can't see 100%
LFF,your pretty lady would look smashing modelling a set of headphones!

5aces, those are some cool street shots. Some of those would look great in B&W! Hope you post more!

 

Just in case anyone is interested, I found a cool program that corrects the small distortion present on the LX5 and DLux5. Look it up. It's called PTLens. Highly recommend it and best of all...it's cheap.

Thanks! I wish she would model more often for me but she is rather camera shy and usually only takes pictures to document her make-up skills for her family and friends. Believe me...when there is an opportunity to take pictures of her...I take it.  wink_face.gif

 

I'll post some other pictures I took later on.

I looked at PTlens barrel correction app and taking a look in Adobe lightroom 2010,it seems there is lens correction within that program.

Really like the tree,looks like it is perched on top of skulls.

Here is last night's photo at my local brewpub with a great bartender.

Captured the moment of ecstasy when the barmaid set her eyes on some gold and diamonds,a girls best friend...
