  • Now I’ve seen everything

    Posted on September 20th, 2006 Jeff Keller 1 comment

    The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 has an “aerial photo mode”, made for taking pictures through airplane windows. In the manual they even have these notes below the description of the feature: 1) Turn the camera off when taking off or landing and 2) When using the camera, follow all instructions from cabin crew.
    What’s next?!

    • Hi Jeff, yesterday evening I bought the LX2 after admiting to myself that I’m not a DSLR guy anymore, too heavy and annoying to the results I get (probably if I would be a great photographer a DSLR would give me that extra kick that an advanced prosumer cannot give me, but now I should admit that my prosumer shots (and even consumer) are much better than my DSLR ones -even if I come from the SLR world-).
      So far the LX2 is being great… it has that retro look that I love, it’s pretty pocketable without a toy feeling and I love the cinematic 16:9 format. I know Panasonic sensors are noisy, and that Venus Engine III has a tendency to over-denoise (removing detail in photograph) but for the majority of us, printing at A4 and looking through standard monitors and TVs I can only say…. WOAAW!.
      Sorry for the long speech, I just needed to say something about my new toy and you gave me the perfect opportunity :).
      Enjoy the camera while you review it.
