Hi, I am a new owner of a Panasonic Lumix LX7 and have been busy learning its features. Any seasoned user of this camera (or the Leica D-Lux 6, which is identical to the LX7) willing to share tips and advice on how to best use this camera?

Will post some photos for feedback and suggestion for improvement, thanks

hi, are these OOC Jpegs from the LX7? Were u using a filter such as "Soft" etc?

they look a bit grainy and colors a bit washed out.

in comparison, 2 photos (also OOC Jpeg) I've from the DLux 6.

Yes, those 2 pics were OOC JPEGs from my LX7. Taken around 7PM, outdoor WITHOUT flash and without filter.

Pic 1: ISO 125, 4.7 mm, 0 EV, f/1.4, 1/60 (using AF Macro, Aperture priority)
Pic 2: ISO 80, 4.7 mm, 1.7 EV, f/3.5, 8sec (using AF, Shuttle priority)

As camera newbie, I don't quite understand what some of the setting mean. I have taken some other photos using auto modes (iA mode as well as SCN mode), but the images appeared a bit "dark", for example:

(ISO 80, 4.7 mm, 0 EV, f/2.8, 1/400)

Hmm , for OOC JPEGs , the DLux 6's and LX7's will differ as Leica tweaked the OOC Jpeg but if it's shooting Raw , both cameras produce the exact same output. Had tried both models side by side at the shop.

Your settings are all ok but I'm guessing u can improve the photos by paying more attention to exposure control ; I shoot generally in Aperture mode but generally around f2 - f5; If I use Aperture mode , of course the camera decides shutter speeds. This is a camera which I use more as a P n S and at most change exposure and aperture settings. I only engage Manual mode when i do long exposures (the ND filter is superb haha)

update:

a shot taken at around 7 plus pm. hmm. I'm guessing its exposure settings as your last photo looks under-exposed.
