Just gotten myself a replacement camera not long ago. Although it packed inside an Olympus paperback but it’s definitely not an Olympus. It’s actually a high-end compact prosumer camera – Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 costs me S$698 and it comes with the following freebies – 8GB SD Card, mini tripod, cleaning kit, screen protector and a third-party extra battery. For review and specs for LX3, please see here (dpreview.com).

Unboxing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 – comes with all the usual stuffs like battery charger, power cables, mini USB cables, manuals, etc.

The LCD screen is fitted with the screen protector already. I have asked the folks from the camera store to fix it up to me as I remembered that my clumsy hands did a bad job of putting on Invisible Shield on my HTC Touch Diamond. Haha!

The new versus the old – Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8. The FX8 have served me well over the years and it was about time to upgrade it for my street photography use. If you want to know more about FX8, please see here. I would also like to lay my hands on the rumored new Micro Four Thirds Panasonic GF1 too but it’s still a rumor until officially announced. Right? 😛

At the side lens barrel of LX3, you can easily change between Autofocus, Macro and Manual Focus. This gives the more experienced folks a bit more control.

The LX3 screen is amazing. In fact, it’s too good that you might have mistaken that you have taken a great shot! 😛

Changing aspect ratio is so easy on the LX3 as it’s on the lens barrel. There is no need to go several layers deep into the software menu just to make a change.

Without going through the manual, I straight away took the new LX3 out for a test shoot (no settings done too!) – the photos as follows are either taken in intelligent auto (to test capturing of inpromptu situations) or manual mode. This evening shot of Capitol Building was taken around 7:15pm.

Funan DigitaLife Mall at about 8:17pm. A couple was smooching when I took this shot and I didn’t even notice until I was going through the photos. You’ll never know what you will capture when you have a camera by your side! LOL!

May Phua (local TV actor) is the emcee for the event.

So after viewing all the test shoot photoes, what is your view on LX3? I though it was great and I had a fun-filled time with it. I guess it’s also time for me to go through the manual, menu, controls to squeeze more out of the LX3. Happy shooting then!Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

新与旧的对比- Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3和Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX8. 我用了FX8还多年了是时候为了街头摄影把它给换了。如果你想知道多些关于FX8,请看这里。我也想用有新的谣言Micro Four Thirds Panasonic GF1,但它仍是一个谣言。对吗?:P

在LX3方镜筒旁边,可以轻松地更改自动对焦,微距拍摄和手动对焦。这给有经验的摄影人多一点控制。

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

LX3屏幕真是惊人。事实上,这不太好,你可能会误以为你已经拍了漂亮的照片! 😛

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

改变aspect ratio对LX3说是很容易的,因为就在镜筒。无需进入好几层的软件就为了做出改变。

没有看通过手册我就拿了新的 LX3试拍(没有调设置!)-以下的照片是利用自动式拍的(以测试没有准备的情况下拍的)或手动模式。这Capitol Building的夜景是在7点15分左右拍的。

所以,看了所有测试拍摄的照片,你对有什么关于看法?我觉得它是不错的。 我想也是时候看看手册,控制,以了解更多LX3的用途。
