My LX5

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
~Aaron Sickind

The LX5 Heart
Valentine’s Day greeted me with a new piece of gear… the Panasonic Lumix LX5. I am excited to experiment and have fun taking photos with this cool new little camera. To get a head start, I uploaded the Kindle version the Panasonic Lumix LX5: Getting the Most from Panasonic’s Advanced Digital Camera on my i Phone using the Kindle app. The LX5 camera guide is now at my fingertips where ever I am. How cool is that? I also visited forums to get suggestions on camera settings. This camera is loaded with manual setting options for both video and stills. The camera case I bought is the Lowepro Classified 50. It is a bit bulky and I would prefer a case that sits the camera horizontal on a backpack hip belt, not vertical. I would sure welcome any case suggestions!

I am now armed and ready to make pictures.

  2. Hi, I just finished watching all your great YouTube PCT videos. Please tell me…. how did Lady on a Rock make a Camera on a Stick? You definitely have that “Motion” channel thing going for you and I would really appreciate it if you could help me/your readers figure out: 1. The stick thingy. 2 How are you so successful at framing your shots? 3. I assume you are using the video feature of your LX5?? iPhone???
    Thanks Rockin

  3. Cross country skiing is so much fun and I really do miss being in the snow skiing groomed trails, which were common in Montana.

    • Definitely luxurious and new to us! We were spoiled rotten in all possible ways. Trip report is upcoming. I am anxious to get your input on the new point and shoot photos.
