    Re: LX3 images.

    Hello All,

    Well, it seems you can fill the LX3 lens with mud and water and have it repaired. Collected mine today and judging by these cheerfully colour filled pics it seems to work as well as it ever did.
    RAW + iPhoto.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Thanks, Derek.

    This one is cloistered with iPhoto.
    The last two were taken at Iford Manor, near Bradford on Avon, in the Italianate gardens.

    Re: LX3 images.

    I have really enjoyed viewing the images here.

    I have a question. If you preset the focus to a set distance, is there any type of shutter lag? I use a Ricoh GRDII but the images at higher ISO's are a little rough. I have been impressed with the images you shot at higher ISO's. I am a street shooter, so shutter lag is a major concern of mine. Thanks, Rick.

    Hi Derek,
    Even I can look pretty spooky when de-saturated.

    Dr. Strangelove,
    Thanks-pleased that you like the pics.
    I notice no discernible shutter lag when pre-focused to a set distance using manual focus. I shoot always using auto focus and there is not much lag using that either. Yes I was pleased with the LX3 with higher ISO, especially using the Dynamic jPeg setting. All in all, for what it is and what it costs and the fact that it fits in a jacket pocket it's a great little toy.
    However judging by the lovely quality of some of the pics on your website and blog you don't need another camera. Is it only increased portability you are after?

    Here's a pic of a bank where the wild garlic grows- there's a lot in the countryside here at the moment. The smell is delicious.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Thank you for the kind words about my photos. I was interested in the Lumix because I have a project coming up where I will be shooting in low light indoors and will not be able to use a flash. So, the good images at higher ISO's is what interested me in the camera plus, of course, it's small size. I shoot a Ricoh GRDII, but the availability of a zoom and a faster lens on the Lumix would be a pluse, as well.

    Thanks once again, Rick.

    Nice to see this thread still going strong! . . .

    Here are two very different photos from my LX3 . . . The first taken in Cape Town city centre of a public area recently opened as part of the SWC 2010, and the other of a rather tasty lunch which we enjoyed in a West Coast seaside village north of Cape Town.

    Hello All,

    I went to Brittany for a few days and photographed this pine tree on an old coastal path used by customs men in days of yore.

    Fiddled in Elements6.

    Re: LX3 images.

    One from the last day I was using the LX3, a couple of weeks ago. Now sold and replaced with a GF1, which will only and possibly be replaced by a GF2. I don't rule out picking up an LX5 as well.

    Anyway, good knowing that this LX3 probably found a good new home, as it was bought by one of a pair of rather barfly looking dudes.

    Hi everybody,

    I wonder why I never looked at this thread before. Really interesting ! While I'm not a big fan of Gandolfi's colour experiments, I *am* a big fan of your B&W experiments and desaturations. And in general, I am very happy to see somebody trying out different ways of approaching visual language to reach the effect you want. That sounded like an art critic. Anyway.

    I'm happy to say I started to NAP. I also started taking lots of naps because I'm more or less stuck at home with a slipped disk, but the NAP I'm talking about is a small LX3 photo project that you can find at http://nap.techwriter.be. Here's two roadside chapels. The NAP (Nearly a PAD (photo a day)) is square format, dynamic B&W, unprocessed straight out of the camera JPEG only.

    I like this very much, it's got a Chariots of the God's/ Clash of the Titan's old time greek epic feel to it.

    Thanks ! It's amazing what kind of contradictory things one can find simply on the streets sometimes. The class war - danger for life is a great example It's not my particular goal to get this kind of weirdness all the time in my NAP, but it's fun if I do.

    I tried a different approach to composition today (asymmetric). Let nobody complain about the LX3 dynamic range: this is a white building in sunlight and a black postal box, and both are well defined with details.

    I am blown away by the quality of your images. While I get many excellent photos with my LX3, you take the camera to a new level. Panasonic should pay you and use your photos as examples what a very good camera in very capable hands can produce. Please keep posting photos as they are a feast for my eyes.


    I just viewed this entire thread and viewed other excellent photos posted by other photographers. I know why I bought the LX3 and so many photos posted to this thread confirm why the LX3 is one of the highest rated compact cameras. Everyone -- keep up the good work.

    Hi Derek,
    No, not Condor, but mv Bretagne, a much larger car ferry run by Brittany Ferries- on my way back from St Malo to Portsmouth last month- quite a smooth sea crossing hence the long wake.

    A fine photograph. I think the outstretched arm gives it an extra touch of elegance that lifts it above the ordinary.

    Hello All,

    Some pics at Gloucester Cathedral- over 900 years old- Edward II burial place- one of the oldest medieval stained glass windows- even Harry Potter has been here.
    1st is 3 shot panorama.
    2nd is shot with heavy breathing on the lens.
    3rd is vaulted ceiling.
    4th b/w conversion with minimal toning.

    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Photo taken with my LX3. I do not recollect whether I took this photo or it was taken my daughter. In any case this is my grandson Bradley who is 2 1/2.
