If you bought the Panasonic Lumix LX5 yourself, then you probably know what you’re doing and know how to use it, because it’s usually a second camera for experienced DSLR users. Otherwise, there’s a book to help you, the Photographer’s Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX5 by Alexander White. Even if you’re an experienced photographer, the book can still be useful for you to expand into new directions.
The new book explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but adopts a patient and helpful tone in explaining topics such as autofocus, manual focus, aperture priority, shutter priority, and RAW files.
But the book also goes beyond that, beyond the realm of everyday photography, and provides introductions to more advanced topics such as infrared photography, street photography, digiscoping, astrophotography, and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses. These discussions provide detailed information about the equipment or software and procedures needed for these activities, and include illustrative photographs.
