Panasonic Lumix LX3Published on May 12th, 2009.
I’ve been thinking for quite some time about getting a new camera. I was actually leaning towards buying an HD video camera and continue to roll with my old Sony Cyber-Shot 6mp camera. But as the prices for a decent HD video camera are pretty high I decided to look for something else. So I ended up looking at Canon’s G10 and Panasonic’s LX3. And after watching a few videos on YouTube I decided to go with the LX3 instead on the G10 as both the audio and video quality was a lot better. I also got some great replies on Twitter that made me confident about my choice, thanks!
I really like the look of it, it’s like a modern retro, if that makes any sense. I’m a newbie when it comes to photography though, so don’t expect too much from me! I bought the Lumix from a Swedish online store for $595 in total, I added a high speed 4 GB SD card and that also includes shipping. I didn’t bother to check any sites outside of Sweden as I would have had to pay customs and whatnot anyways. It’s a lot of money, but I guess it’s a decent price for a camera like this, the G10 was like $125 more.
For some reason, the LX3 reminds me of a BAB (big ass boat) when the flash is up, is it just me or do you agree?
I haven’t really played with it a whole lot yet, I just finished charging the battery and I’ve been moving stuff around all day (preparations for Friday when I move to the new apartment). I think I’m gonna play with it tonight though, but if I don’t, I’ll definitely take some more photos tomorrow. I also have a few ideas for video recordings so I might upload some videos to YouTube soon.
Well, that’s all I had to say about my new toy! Peace out!
