We’re suckers for doing things inside the camera, whether that’s with one-click or multiple exposures. Sure, we’ll polish up an image in Lightroom but ultimately, we want to create on the spot, rather than afterwards with Photoshop trickery.  Since our new DMC-LX100 cameras allow us to control things manually we were able to do some really fun #GETCRAFTYPHOTOGRAPHERS techniques while we honeymooned in New York.

LX100 Panasonic REview of camera examplesIt was freezing on our last couple of days in New York, so I convinced Derek to sit in a Hell’s Kitchen bar and watch the streets from inside. Sometimes sitting in the same spot for a while allows you to see the same scenes differently. I experimented with one-click long exposures with some added hand-swirling just for fun. 1/3 sec f16.

We were staying in Long Island City, and our hotel offered a free shuttle into Manhattan. It was a gorgeous sunny day when Derek pointed his LX100 out the window. I cursed him a little bit. But only because I was jealous.

So when I noticed Derek pointing his camera out the window, I pointed mine out my window as well. A little playful rivalry can inspire beautiful results, haha.

It’s a reflection of the restaurant ceiling in his coffee, and it was the first photo Derek took with his camera. The Lumix LX100 allows you to choose your aspect ratio when you take the photo.

All this from the first few days of using the LX100 and we’re loving the results. We definitely plan on taking it with us on our next few trips and sharing our view of the world.

I created this post because I think the camera is cool. No one asked me to write a review. But if you’re curious, and want to know more, read 10 reasons we have a crush on this little point-and-shoot. We’d also love to hear from you.
