    New LX3.

    Hi everyone.

    I've been away for a while, but I'm back

    Couldn't resist the new LX3 - so here it comes:
    a few pics from my first days with the little wonder.

















    Thank you for your time.
    Ellemand.

    Welcome back Ellemand and these are great looking photographs (as usual). Thank you for sharing. How do you think the LX3 compares or differ to the GRD and DP1?

    Hi Wouter.
    Thanks for your kind comment.
    The LX3 works allright as an allround camera. IQ is as good as my GRD's -maybe a little better, but the GRD's has better handling and are faster in general use - ex. in the streets - and they fits better in the pocket.
    The DP1 has an outstanding IQ, but it is soooo slow. It was to slow for my use, so I ended up selling it. I'm considering the DP2 - but only if it's faster than the DP1 - only time will tell.
    The LX3 is a very nice camera - it works very well - especially if you have enough time.
    Thank you for looking.

    Ellemand,

    Beautiful images, well composed and executed. The LX3 is just a super little camera, isn't it?

    Ellemand,
    Just curious. What settings did you shoot? Raw or Jpeg?

    Very impressive.
    Are the machines also called 'Billetautomat' in Denmark? I thought this name was
    a typical Swiss mixture of french and german.

    Hi to all of you.
    Thanks for the nice comments.
    I Always shoot RAW. I only have Photoshop CS3, so I convert via Adobe DNG-converter - not the best solution, but it works all-right.
    Robert - yes the name is "billetautomat" in Denmark, I thougt it was typical Danish?
    I'm so happy, you all liked the photos - so here you get two more.





    Have a nice weekend.
    Ellemand.

    Thank you Ellemand. The Ricoh handling remains unbeatable, but IQ wise? I personally still prefer the GX100 over the GX200. I have thought often about selling the Ricoh and buying the LX3. I have some limited experience with the DP1 and I understand why you sold it, but I believe the IQ is one of the best.

    And the CS3+DNG converter really seems to work for you. I really like it.

    On my Mac, the only software that will open/develop the LX3 raw files is the copy of SilkyPix which came with the camera. You seem to be able to open them in CS3.

    You can also use CS4, ACR 5.2, and Lightroom 2.2 or later on addition to Silkypix on Mac.

    Unfortunately, I don't have CS4, ACR, or Lightroom. I have Aperture, and even more unfortunately, Aperture doesn't recognize LX3 raw files.


    PS. I've posted some LX3 shots of Puerto Rico here:

    Yeah I feel your pain. I invested in LR 2 for the very same reason. It's worth it IMO even though Aperture does a lot of the same things. I don't think it's worth $300 but if you're a student or have one in your house you can normally find it for about $100 give or take which is a fair price for the program IMO.

    Re: New LX3.

    Does anyone know if Capture 4 will process the LX3 raw photos? If not, I am wondering why, since isn't the DLUX 4 basically the same camera.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Re: New LX3.

    There's a different file extension for the LX3 and D-Lux 4. There was a work around posted here in the past in a thread started by Guy Mancuso I believe. You should search for it. The only RAW processors that will handle both are the Adobe products at this moment.
