Panasonic DMC LX3

Panasonic DMC LX3

Luckily enough a 28 km trekking route on the Catalunyan Pyrenees helped me understand that carrying around my 350D is not a good idea. I used a belt-striped case and carried the 350D along with the Tokina 12-24. I thought that it would be a light choice but… I was really happy to leave it in the hotel for the second day.

So I had to go out and buy a compact. A good one. I finally ordered the Panasonic Lumix LX3. I wanted a light and capable camera and this one seems to do the trick. Its F2.0-F2.8 24-60mm (35mm equivalent) Leica lens it is exactly what I would like for the trip. My first thought was the Canon G9, but it was heavier and not so bright.

For the test drive and sample photos I will keep you posted.

PS: As a new camera marks a new era of uplaoding too, I created a second Flickr account. There I plan to upload only photos from the trip. The link is:

Ciao for now!
