    Micro 4/3 LX 100 ii

    So finally! Panasonic has now released details of the long awaited successor to the LX 100. Same basics, including the same lens, but a higher resolution sensor and a touch screen. What do folk think? :( :D :confused: I'm maybe interested in this update to my LX 100, although I haven't...

    Ya see, I’ve had this itch for several months now and I have convinced myself that I really need to try out the mu4/3 field. This doesn't mean I don’t like my Fuji gear anymore, far from it. But I have this itch to try another system, which needs to be scratched. Had to sell off three premium...

    Hey folks, just your average GAS ramble to come. :2thumbs: The G9 looks good. Really good. The Olympus E-M5 got me into m43 and since then, the Panasonic GM1, GH3 and GH4 have come to the fold. I use the GH cameras for work, but the GM1 is a wonderful stills camera with the small Olympus...

    Micro 4/3 LX100 and the Night Sky

    Only one shot. I was not really prepared for this, I had just wandered out to see what the clouds were doing... but really, not a bad effort for a small camera. Might have to use a tripod and try harder, hand held is always a bit fraught. Southern Cross with a bit of Star Trailling (alas!)

    Micro 4/3 Considering getting a Panasonic LX10/LX15

    I have been considering getting a smaller 1" pocket camera. Since I have the GX85 already I'm leaning toward the LX10 over an RX100 (III/IV). At least the controls, settings, etc would be the same/similar. Just found out it doesn't have L.Monochrone, I wish it did. Any reasons I shouldn't...

    Does anyone have any experience with replacing the rear LCD screen of the LX100? Mine has been damaged so that I can't use it to adjust settings. I can still use the camera to take photos because I always use the EVF for that, but I prefer the screen when playing in menus. I have emailed...
