I picked up my replacement LX100 today with a fully working EVF. And whilst at Carmarthern Cameras, I purchased a new Panansonic Case to protect the camera. I will now be able to give this camera a good test as I will be off on holiday for a few weeks in North Wales.
Welcome to my new website, it is hoped that with this easier to access interface, that I will spend more time keeping this website up to date.
My new Lumix LX100 did not last very long. As I just presumed that as I was not used to a EVF (all my other cameras use a optical viewfinder). So I thought they were all very soft and difficult to see, so in the end I took the camera back to Carmarthen Cameras where they confirmed that the diopter adjuster was not working. So a new one has been ordered.
After performing a lot of research in magazines and on the internet, I was in need of a replacement for my Canon G7 which has served me very well over the years, but as technology has advanced so much over the past five years or so. And Image quality and overall camera performance was my main interest in my search. So I'm now the proud owner of a Panasonic Lumix LX100, Although I have only managed to get out with it for one day of shooting up in the mountains, I am very pleased with the results, giving good overall exposures and still keeping detail in the shadow areas. I will be doing a lot more testing over the coming weeks.
This is one of the first images taken with my New Lumix LX100, performing a good test on it's dynamic range of being able to retain detail in the shadow areas even when shooting into the sun.
