You access the panoramic feature of the Leica D-ux (Type 109) via the drive menu – it’s right up the end of the list. The Panasonic Lumix LX100 works the same way. The camera fires off numerous frames and stitches them together for you. I haven’t really had a lot of time to analyse theContinue reading “Panoramic with the D-Lux”
I’m in Melbourne, Australia, on a business trip – no shooting. But I’ve brought the little Leica and thought I’d post anything interesting. Nothing here ‘professional’, just glorified snaps which show off the camera’s capabilities.
I bought my Leica on a Friday, so on Saturday I made a video – a very short, unremarkable video. Except it tracks along, as though on a slider, stops when I’ve walked into the frame and wave, then starts sliding again. http://vimeo.com/113185459 I sent it to a couple of filmmaker mates who’d both pickedContinue reading “4K on the D-Lux”
After just a day with my Leica D-Lux (Type 109), I’ve found features most of the online reviews missed, and discovered things I thought would be there which aren’t.

But I’m shocked at the reviews, opinion and comments which are quite wrong. So here are the things I’m finding,Continue reading “Leica D-Lux (Type 109) and Panasonic LX100 misinformation”
The iPhone doesn’t support the recording of calls, and, as a journalist, I’ve found this to sometimes be a pain. Generally I simply resort to Skype, because that’s an easy way around the problem, but when one of my colleagues asked me about the problem, it got me thinking. I came up with a workaround.Continue reading “Recording a phone call with an iPhone”
I’ve quipped with people that the M.Zuiko 12-24 f/2.8 is $2300, the same price (Australian) price as the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L lens* – except when you buy the Olympus, they throw in their latest to-of-the-range camera body. That’s what I paid for the EM-1 & 12-40, and so far I’m very impressed. The lens isContinue reading “Day 1 with OM-D EM-1 & m.zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8”
