    Just a few shots from my recent trip to Siem Reap where I shot exclusively with the LX3 (digitally anyway - had film medium format too).

    Thanks you. These were taken in A mode, shot in RAW and edited in Lightroom 2.

    A newbie question from me! Does anyone know if it's possible to capture the "flowing water" effect with the LX3 for daytime shots?

    Something like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eyesthr...ns/3032086200/

    I know the trick to achieving this affect is to have a slow shutter speed. However, it gets very tricky to achieve this during the daytime. I have tried setting my aperture to about 8.0, and put in the lowest ISO possible (80)... yet the shutter speed is still very fast. What other settings can I change?

    Set to manual and you'd be able to set it. Things you can't set - the light coming from the sky. Try doing it on a overcast area or dark area and set longer shutter speed, I guess?

    All depands on what type of photos you are interested to take.

    I tot LX3 is a simple camera to take photos, but after trying out macro, then realise need macro lens, external flash and so on... so beware of the BBB syndrom...

    You can just put your sunglasses in front the lens to archive slow shutter speed.
    Be creative on your camera, you may get a nice waterfall pic

    Yes it has limited zoom but for people who decided to get this, they are likely to be aiming for the wide and the f2-2.8 lens.

    Dear friends,

    Formally, I use using a DSLR before switching to LX3.

    I notice that the flash power (intensity) is alway the same.
    Unlike DSLR, they will calculate the power of flash to use.
    Am I right?

    2nd question, how do you achieve fill flash with the crappy build in flash of LX3?

    Thanks,
    Lee

    Ya, the flash tends to overexpose at close range. So need to dial in -1 or -2 EV.

    But it's a great cam overall and great value for its price. Much easier to lug around than my backbreaking combo of 5D + 430EX + HV20 HDV cam when I want to move around light with the family. : )

    Question Re: LX3 Users Discussion.

    Does anyone know how to generate thumbnail from .rw2 files?

    I downloaded and installed the codec from
    http://panasonic.jp/support/global/c...raw/index.html

    The windows photo gallery is now able to open the .rw2 files but no thumbnail in windows explorer. Btw, i'm using vista home premium 32 bit

    Thanks in advance

    Yah, I was abt to mention e same thing, from that website he provided I finally know how to use the spot metering function in the LX3, i.e. using the small "focus" button at the top to make the focus bracket "movable" during spot metering!

    Nice site!
