Today I took a break from working on camera books so Clenise and I could take a photo expedition out to a local county park. It was a beautifully sunny, crisp autumn day and we picked a park we had never been to before. It turned out to be a good choice, with a great variety of scenes and activities to photograph, including farm animals, trees with leaves at their peak of autumn colors, a preserved historic farm house from the 1860s, and a pond with a fountain. There also was a blacksmith’s work area, a log cabin, and quite a few other attractions. The four photos here are ones I took with the Leica D-Lux 5, which is Leica’s version of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, the subject of my latest book. I took some of these photos today to put them in the new book about the D-Lux 5, which I hope to have completed by the end of this year, if I can find enough time. So, today gave us a chance for a very pleasant excursion, with some great photo opportunities included.
Glad to see that your work on the D-Lux 5 books is coming along — great pics! — as I am keeping regular watch on your blog for news of its release. My D-Lux 5 has been my new best friend for exactly a month now, and I look forward to getting to know it even better in the near future with your help.
Since you have studied both cameras in depth, maybe you can settle the raging online debate going on between the LX5 & D-Lux 5 – is the output from these cameras the same? Or does the D-Lux 5 have superior output because of the "Leica Firmware"?
