I got a new camera for Christmas this year. At the recommendation of my friend and co-worker, Cameron, I got a Panasonic Lumix LX3 and I absolutely LOVE it! I’m trying to improve my photography skills (which is a long shot for me…I am definitely not a star photographer!) and I knew I needed to have the right tools to get me there. This camera is said to be somewhere between a point-and-shoot and a digital SLR. It seems to be the perfect way for me to build up my artistic eye before putting a lot of investment into a really pricey camera.
The thing I love about this camera is that it’s compact enough to be the perfect travel companion. We’re going to Europe this May, and I definitely wanted to buy a camera that would travel well. Not to mention the fact that it takes beautiful pictures! It has an incredibly crisp Leica lens and a large (3″) LCD screen. It also takes beautiful HD videos! I didn’t do any photoshop-ing on the photos below and the black and white pics are all from the camera’s “Dynamic Black and White” setting.
On my trip to California 2 weeks ago I definitely got to test out my new Lumix. Here are some photo highlights of my trip (with little to no commentary, so please feel free to ask any questions in the comments!). You can click on any of these to see the full quality picture.
