Overview

This book explains all features, menus, and controls of the Panasonic Lumix LX5 digital camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but adopts a patient and helpful tone in explaining topics such as autofocus, manual focus, aperture priority, shutter priority, and RAW files.

The book’s numerous photographs provide illustrations of the camera’s controls and menus, and also include examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the My Color shooting mode, which lets the photographer alter the color processing of images; the Scene modes, with settings that are optimized for various subjects, including landscapes, portraits, and sports; and special features such as the Multiple Exposure and High Dynamic Range settings.

In addition, the book goes beyond the realm of everyday photography, and provides introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, street photography, digiscoping, astrophotography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses. These discussions provide detailed information about the equipment or software and procedures needed for these activities, and include illustrative photographs.

The book also includes a full discussion of the exceptional capabilities of the Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera in recording video. The book describes the various settings for video recording and when to use them, including a discussion of the advanced manual video recording settings that the camera provides, including a shutter speed as fast as 1/20,000 second and as slow as 1/8 second.

In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories available for the camera, sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information, and includes a section with helpful “quick tips” that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera’s advanced features in the most efficient ways possible.
