    DLux4 Scene Mode 'Film Grain' - wow!!!!

    Had a chat with Ivor at a London dealer and he asked me for my DL4. He showed me what the film grain scene mode does and I really like it. It sets the camera to ISO 1600 and 3MP and produces pictures with a lovely grain.

    This was taken when I got home. Nothing done except resizing and sharpen with WebPresenter Pro (please ignore the cluttered background, I just wanted the window light!):



    I have never really taken the DL4 off A mode really and haven't used any scene modes. I might start using this one though. ISO 1600 gives some good shutter speed in low light too :-)

    I DO AGREE..Lovely portrait
    but its a bit of too much noise in the overall Complexion
    can that be removed
    otherwise I find it GORGEOUS

    I'm trying to Decide between
    this & the coming DP2
    for my Pocket....

    Best-h

    I don't think either will fit into your pocket unless you have really large pockets. There are a lot of hidden features in this camera that you wouldn't know about without actually reading the manual. That's very against my nature but I remember Jonoslack mentioning how important it was to read the manual before I bought my D-Lux 4. It was good advice.

    When a conundrum like this presents itself, the best solution is simply to get them both!

    I think the D-Lux 3 and 4 are virtually the same size I believe. It's been a while since I've held a D-Lux 3. I use the Leica leather case for it. It fits on my belt loop nicely.
