I have finally brought the one and only Panasonic Lumix LX3 at Sungai Wang in a whooping sum of RM 1,500 that come with a 4 GB Memory & a hard cover to carry the camera around. The reason I needed a new camera is that the old Sony DSC T-10 is not performing well and the picture quality suck especially in indoor shots.
Danny Choo was the one who recommended me on one of his post for this camera. I like the design and image quality it take was simply amazing for such a compact camera. After that, I did some research on the market and found out the LX3 is a very hot item on the market for beginners & travelers.
It received tons of positive reviews online. After reading through, I finally decided to buy it after I get my salary from my part time job.
These days there are always tons of wires come with any electronic products.
Do you actually read the menu? Seriously!? I just skip through and only take note when I come across important parts.
The menu is quite easy to use and just a change of the dials above to set a different mode is really fun to play around in order to create different effects and feels.
To those who love DSLR would love the dial and the settings that come with this prosumer digital camera. A lots of hardcore DSLR photographer drop their heavy & bulky ones in order to exchange for Lumix Lx3 for travel wise.
The reason why the pictures quality produce is great it due to the uses of the famous Leica lenses that are hand made from Germany and assemble in Japan.
The cap for the lens is always the problem when I want to take a picture but this will soon change after I purchase Ricoh LC 1 as it will automatically pop out whenever I wanted without thinking that I would lost my lens cap or it dangling around.
I always like to use 16:9 and hated 4:3 for its square looking capture. Never for 4:3!!
Simple control to navigate around the camera menu and settings. I found out that I love the level of control I can have since my old Sony can’t even set what I wanted because it’s fully automated that run in preset scene T_T
A popular myth that surround digital camera today is that the more megapixel you have the better quality picture you’ll achieve. Sorry, to break your bubble but it does not work that way because when manufacture try to squish more megapixel into a camera would burden the sensor and noise would increase tremendously. As a result grainy low quality images are produce. More here!

And now it’s Mio turn for the lime light.
The middle one is for USB, the right one is for TV but not sure about what the left one do actually.
I need to do more test shot and learn more about photograph to improve my skill on capturing scenes and how to set the perfect settings for different situation. I got nothing much to says since I’m also new to this game.
