    You stated Digital size as 3:4. Can further elaborate on that? I searched through the old posts in CS (some dated 2002), that there are digital-image (DI) sized, ie. 4:3.

    Was that the reason why the shopowner asked me to take photos in 4:3 instead of 3:2 to avoid cropping? Thanks.

You mentioned F2, which means you're at the short end of the zoom range - you should instead use the long end and use 2.8 instead. To simulate the bokeh effect you can achieve in macro mode, you'd have to place your subject a good (long x2) distance from the background. It would also be good to make sure that the background is not too busy - just plain would be good. I have yet to test this out though ... just speaking from experience.

    For your second question, put the camera in "S" speed mode. Dial in a slowish speed like 1/15 or 1/30 or slower speed depending on the amount of blur that you want to achieve. Because of the slow speeds involved, a steady platform is advised i.e. a tripod. Focus on the object then fire away. Another variation is having the subject sharp while all around it is blur. This is the panning technique and can be achieved very easily with a little practice.
    How abt "reverse" bokeh - foreground blur, back ground sharp? Do you use manual focus and trained the focus at the back?

    Or the "sandwich" - clear center and blur at the fore and background?.

    Many thanks.

    For the first one, focus the background. For the other, focus the center ... again, must have good separation between all of these subjects. Now go to the field and try it out

    Yup, I also encountered the same problem using flash with the 52mm tube adaptor.

    I'm also using a 52mm tube, with a filter attached. I also get the same effect as you guys, especially when the flash is fired at the short end of the zoom range. This effect tends to be less noticeable when used at the long end. So how to solve this? Very easy.

    Find yourself some kind of translucent plastic material. The cap from a Pringles potato chips will suffice. Place this cap in front of the flash and fire away. Take the same shot without the cap and compare. Do this for the long end of the zoom as well. For me, I find that it nearly obliterates the shadow.

    Oh, one more thing. This cap can also be used to adjust your WB setting manually. Give it a try and post your results here. Happy trying.

    thats because the flash is unable to illuminate the bottom part of ur scene because ur adapter is blocking it...

    wonder if the 46mm lens tube will cause similar issue?

    if that is the case then Panny has created a design flaw but any users using the 46mm lens tube care to comment

    Yes. The manual already stated that if you use the tube, a shadow will be casted on the photo.

    wonder if it is as obvious as the effect caused by the 52mm tube

    Hi Guys

    I noticed that LX3, Min aperture is F8.

    1) In landscape, we often use F16-F22. Since LX3 is a wide angle, do you guys basically just stretch it to F8?
    2) In most DSLR lens, F8 is the sharpest. What about LX3?

    As LX3 has a smaller sensor 1/1.6" compare to most DSLR, it has much bigger depth of view compare to DSLR. So below F/8 is not an issue, actually it may face degrade in photo quality due to diffraction issue at f/8, while most DSLR face diffraction issue at f/16 and above.

    its not a design flaw
    theres a reason why there is a hot shoe...

    just like DSLRs
    if ur lens too long or ur lens put hood
    pop up flash also will cast shadow
