The Leica D-Lux 6 is one of the top choices for photographers who want an advanced camera they can carry around to capture great images without the complication and weight of a DSLR or other large camera. With features such as a very fast lens with an aperture of f/1.4, excellent image quality, and a solid array of burst-shooting capabilities, the D-Lux 6 has attracted an enthusiastic following. However, the camera does not come with a detailed printed manual for reference, making it hard for users to find answers to questions about the use of the camera’s many controls, menus, and features. With the release of this guide book to the D-Lux 6, White Knight Press has provided users with a comprehensive guide to all operations of this sophisticated camera. Using a patient, tutorial-like approach, the book provides guidance to beginning and intermediate photographers about how to accomplish things with the D-LUX 6, as well as when and why to use the camera’s many controls, menus options, and other features. The book does not assume specialized knowledge by the reader as it explains topics such as autofocus, manual focus, depth of field, aperture priority, shutter priority, exposure bracketing, white balance, and ISO sensitivity. The book also provides details about the camera’s numerous options for playback, setup, and customizing the operation of the various buttons and other controls. The book contains approximately 400 photographs, almost all in full color, illustrating the D-Lux 6’s controls, shooting screens, and menus. The images also provide examples of the various types of photographs that can be taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Creative Control settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing and other aspects of images; the Scene shooting mode, with settings that are optimized for various subjects, including landscapes, portraits, and action shots; the Photo Style menu option, which provides the ability to customize the appearance of images; and the camera’s strong array of features for continuous shooting and shooting in dim lighting. In addition, the book goes beyond the bounds of everyday photography, and introduces more advanced topics such as infrared photography, street photography, digiscoping, astrophotography, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the D-Lux 6, which can shoot high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound, and which offers manual control of exposure and focus during movie recording. In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories for the D-Lux 6, including cases, external flash units, viewfinders, and filter adapters, and includes a list of web sites and other resources for further information.

The Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a compact zoom camera designed with the enthusiast and advanced photographer in mind. For those shooters looking for a very capable camera with a small profile—especially when compared to a DSLR—the LX100 hits the mark, and it does so without compromise in quality. With its Four Thirds sensor, its 24–75mm focal range, and its Leica f/1.7–2.8 lens, the LX100 has received much high praise. In fact, DP Review awarded the camera its highest ever score in its camera class and called it “one of the best photographers’ cameras on the market and probably the best zoom compact ever made.” In addition, the inclusion of 4k video and 4k photo mode put the LX100 in a class by itself. The Pocket Guide to the Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a quick and to-the-point companion guide to help you make the most of this highly capable advanced camera. The basic operation of the LX100 is fairly straightforward for those photographers with an understanding of exposure and composition—adjusting the aperture and shutter speed are simple enough. But there are many next-generation features, functions, and customizable setups that even a seasoned photographer might overlook or not take full advantage of—features that, when implemented, could make all the difference in getting the shot. In this concise guide, Panasonic LUMIX Luminary Rob Knight shares his real-world experience with the LX100. Rob doesn’t spend time rehashing the basics of the exposure triangle; instead, he dives into a curated collection of the LX100’s best features and capabilities that he uses regularly. Some of the topics covered include: • The best focus modes and settings based on the shooting situation • Customizable Function (Fn) button and Control Dial options • In-Camera RAW processing • Shooting in Silent mode • Multiple exposures and panoramas • 4k photo mode • WiFi settings and features • And much more! Rob also discusses the coolest and best features of the LX100 that truly make a difference in how you use the camera, such as back-button focus, the pros and cons of electronic vs. mechanical shutter, how to customize the camera so it feels like you have a kit bag of prime lenses rather than a continuous zoom, and using external flash. Finally, Rob includes his favorite camera settings, setups, and suggestions for specific shooting situations, such as street photography, travel photography, macro photography, and timelapse photography.
