    Consensus elsewhere (I don't have any Panasonic/Olympus external flashgun so I can't confirm this myself) is that the Olympus FL36 and FL50 are identical to the Panasonic FL360 and FL500...

  4. DMC-LX3 AWB (RAW+JPEG, BW mode): Greenish cast to RAW images

    Hello all,

    I've just come across a curious issue relating to the DMC-LX3 when the following settings are used:
    -RAW+JPEG capture
    -JPEGs are taken in a BW capture mode

    For some reason, when...

    I agree that Panasonic's own optical viewfinder is ludicrously overpriced - the Voigtlander 25mm viewfinder is (at least where I live) half...

    Panasonic DMC-LX3 lens barrel distortion

    Hello all,

    I've previously written in this forum about my experiences with the Panasonic LX3, most of which were positive (subject to an issue I had with third-party flash units). Unfortunately,...

    I'm using the LA-4 with a Hoya MC UV filter - the adapter, if nothing else, makes it easier to hold the camera with both hands.

    B+W sells 46mm polarisers; odds are good that they'll have a 46mm MC...

    howi,

    I'm glad you're finding the photos useful. I'm particularly pleased with the low-light photos - I do quite a lot of available-light photography, and for that purpose the LX1 was a major...

    As far as I can gather, the road's actually curved - so that's not lens distortion you're seeing. I'm afraid I can't do much more in terms of full-size photos or lab tests, but I hope that the photos...
