Lumix LX3

Chumma Talk: My blog is back on moderation. Thanks to Mr Anonymous.

***

That is the compact camera which I recently purchased after deliberating for some time. Thanks Mahen & Puvan for accompanying me when I made the purchase.

The most frequent question I get whenever I say I got LX3 is... "Given the price of LX3 is close to the cost of a DSLR, why not a DSLR?". Lets just say I am not a DSLR-person, though most of my close friends have one. I prefer something smaller and lighter. That's all.

I am not going to bore anyone with a long list of specification of the cam, which I think you guys can read in any camera review websites. I have some shots which I took from time to time (Bukit Tinggi shots were taken with LX3 as well). Below are some of them and these are unedited photos save for cropping & watermarking.

Old Town White Coffee
Among the first few shots I took with LX3.. within minutes after purchase.


Lotus @ home

@ rauf
