Photographer's Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX5: Getting the Most from Panasonic's Advanced Digital Camera is the third book in a series by Alexander S. White. His previous guides to the Leica D-Lux 4 and Panasonic Lumix LX3 were extremely well received by enthusiasts searching for comprehensive books that explain the features and operation of some of the most sophisticated compact digital cameras being sold today. The current book is a detailed resource, illustrated by more than 150 color photographs, that covers all operations, menus, and controls of the Panasonic Lumix LX5, the newest in a line of highly sophisticated, yet very portable cameras that are equipped with full manual controls as well as advanced digital technology. The book provides detailed guidance to beginning, intermediate, and more experienced photographers in plain English. The photographs illustrate the camera's menus and controls, and provide examples of many of the camera's shooting modes and special effects. For those who find the documentation provided by the camera's manufacturer to be hard to read and difficult to understand, this book fills an information gap and serves as a single source of information to let the photographer derive the maximum benefit from his or her Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera.
