panasonic lumix dmc-lx3
12 September, 2008 § 4 Comments
Got myself a Panasonic LX3 in gorgeous black yesterday night. Was wondering whether I should let go of my trusty Konica-Minolta G400 because it’s a nifty-sized camera, quick start-up and capable of capturing the natural colours I love. Its autofocus is a bit too sloppy though. But might keep it for the rainy day or for when I don’t feel like roughing it with the LX3.
Haven’t had a chance to take the LX3 for a proper spin yet. Can’t wait. Though am a bit nervous about taking him out without a case. The bundle from Panasonic didn’t include a case unfortunately, not even a simple pouch, which seemed most odd to me. Definately need to get the little guy a case to keep him warm and dry. Have heard that the Lowepro TX20 D-Pods 40 will fit him so I’ll probably have to hit town to check it out some time next week.
That and I’m hunting for another memory card, just in case I overdo the snapping and bust my 4Gb card’s limit. So my autumn shopping spree isn’t quite done yet.
Will try and post a pic from the LX3 soon, but first a bit about the bundle I got which I thought was a pretty good deal at approximately US$475.
