Default lx100 blue hour in town

Hi all,

Some evening pictures from my town. LX100 with DR set to high, camera jpgs. I'm beginning to find my handheld shutter speed limits with this camera, allowing best (lowest safe) iso values.

Random bicycle, corrected perspective in post (dxo viewpoint).


traffic signs.. resize only


slightly too close to the tree


with a touch of shadow/highlight in post


Also shot a version with clean foreground, but liked it better with the bicycle traffic

G'day GB

They seem to be a great bunch of images - good tonal range to my eye
It seems that the camera is doing a pretty good job - following your eye & instructions as well

Nice night shots, especially the first one. The only thing that distracts me is the blobs of fuzz around lights in a few photos that look more like a circle instead of fading out gradually. Any reason why they appear so?

G'day mate

It's a characteristic of some sensors - both my pentax Kx and the Fuji X-s1 converts street lights into blobs

Thanks Phil and Raghu!

I think all the lx-series from panasonic suffer from this blob-thing.. But compared to the lx7, the lx100 flare is much better controlled. It's still a factor though.

Yep, I'm very happy with this camera. It's super intuitive, wish all cameras worked this way. Being a pixel peeper, I very much appreciate the large sensor it features; no fear of upping the iso, and much better dynamic range.. Though I'm still waiting to get into raw editing with this baby. C'mon adobe
The only thing I've come across that I feel could have been implemented better is the iso adjustment visualization. If in full manual, and adjusting either shutter or aperture, you get live feedback on over/underexposure; when adjusting iso this is not the case. But it is a small thing; in practice, when operating on the hand held limits, I'll have iso on auto.
