I updated the firmware on my Lumix lx5 to version 2.0 and they added a tilt shift mode. It’s pretty damn cool. I can’t wait to take the camera out to really test it out. It also fixed some auto focus timing issues and memory. Here are some told shift sample shots.
I was lucky enough to be invited to visit San Francisco for the 2nd time this year. My friend Jackie invited me on the trip she was planning to my favorite city as she was taking her boyfriend Hugo for Fathers day weekend. I was the unofficial guide since I had just visited the city in March. I Showed them around the city including Patxis Pizza, Pearls Deluxe burgers, Alcatraz, The Wharf, Union Square, The Castro and we rode the cable cars and street cars around like the locals. All in all they told me they had a great time and cant wait to go back! As for me I will be heading back in September to see Brand New 1 week after my 27th Birthday. I CANT WAIT! Whats your favorite San Francisco memory/eatery?
P.S. These photos were all shot with the Panasonic Lumix Lx5 with an Opteka Wide Angle Lens
So normally I shoot with a Nikon D5000 with a 35mm f1.8 lens. I love the camera but I hate carrying it around all the time. So my solution was to buy a point and shoot that still delivered a great quality picture. After some deliberating and research I set on the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5. It’s an almost identical camera when compared to the Leica dlux5, but with a cheaper price point. Here are some iPhone snapped shots of the lx5. Hopefully a couple more blog posts in the coming 2 weeks. I have a San Francisco trip next weekend that I’m super excited about!
