The photograph seen below which was used in a feature article on this blog a few months ago, ‘Abandoned City Hall Station‘ has been, among other images taken by John-Paul Palescandolo and myself, used in a Yahoo News Story. Additionally, the Huffington Post has run a similar article where we supplied additional photos to help expand the breadth of the viewer experience.

Panasonic LX-3 (aka Leica D-Lux 4)

Panasonic LX-3 (aka Leica D-Lux 4)

Over New Year’s Eve I had the opportunity to take a Panasonic Lumix LX-3 out and about with us for a night on the town. The particular details of the evening would be a bit verbose for our purposes here, so we’ll just cut to the chase and start talking about my experience with this camera. There were a couple of features that attracted me to the Panasonic LX-3. First, it has a an extrermely wide angle lens for a camera of its class. Most point and shoot digitals have a 38mm wide lens, some have a 28mm, but very, very few have anything wider than that. The LX-3 has a 24mm wide angle lens, with a 2.5x zoom which brings it focal length out to roughly 60mm. Second, the f/stop on the lens is quite remarkable for a camera of its type, opening up to a maximum of f/2.0 when at its widest angle. Third, the LX-3 offers a pop-up flash which is far more effective for red-eye reduction than any flash built directly into the body. I also fashioned a custom diffusion dome for this flash which can be seen further below in this review. Last, and certainly not least, the LX-3 offers the RAW file format as one of the options for image recording format. This provides distinct advantages to point & shoots that do not offer this, as white balancing, noise reduction, and sharpening can become very problematic if left to the automated image processing systems within the cameras.

On November 1st, one of my clients and I took a day to photograph in New York City.  We took the train, arriving at 7:30 AM, and headed for the meat packing district.  We timed the morning light perfectly and had  great shooting light until about 1 o’clock due to the huge cloud following the sun through the sky making a giant softbox for us.
