Don't Pull Your Hair - Panasonic DMC-LX7/D-Lux6

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

From what I've read here, the seemingly only difference between the two cameras is the D-Lux6, some claim, has better processing software, and the inclusion of Lightroom.

 

I shot in RAW 99% of the time. I would think that takes the processing software D-Lux 6 out of the equation.

 

The lenses are the same, internals the same, slight body differences. None of those are deal breakers.

 

If that is so, then my wife would be happier if I bought the Panasonic DMC-LX7.

 

Thanks. I apologize for bringing this up again, but I don't recall the comparison of the two cameras for a RAW shooter.

Steve -

 

The differences between the Panasonic and Leica cameras in general are mostly cosmetic, but the Leicas usually come with a bigger (though still not big enough) SD card, a longer warrantee, and with processing software. The in-camera settings for jpegs is different, but if you elect to only shoot RAW that's not an issue.

Panasonic version has an integral grip.

Leica removed it, an offered it as an accessory for about $90.

The Panasonic lacks the red dot, therefore is depreciates much faster than the D-Lux.

The Panasonic may turn out to be more expensive.

      Probably already answered many times. Sorry for the repeat.
      Does anyone know whom to contact at Apple in regard to getting the D-Lux 7's raw files recognized in MacOS High Sierra? (2011 computer; High Sierra is latest compatible OS.)
      Apple says to contact Leica because the camera files may not be compatible with the OS. That doesn't ring true to me...
      Or would it be best just to forget about it? 
      Thanks!

      I found the access info for the hidden menu and now I have a new file format option in the quick menu.

      Anyone else have this?
       
      Also, if I select it and it's not there by default... will that cause an issue? So this RAW is what exactly? CR2?

      My M240 came back from Solms yesterday after the strap lug recall and I took a few test shots. I then realised the camera was set to the default JPG Fine instead of the RAW I normally use.
       
      When I tried to import the JPG files into Aperture I discovered they were not visible from within Aperture. The files were there and I copied them to the desktop. Again, I could not import them.
       
      At first I suspected a problem with Aperture and fired off a thread to the Apple Aperture discussion. Only later did I think to try a card from another camera and discovered everything was working properly. In the meantime I had done some RAW shots with the M and was surprised to find them appearing in Aperture as normal. I have since replicated this with another SD card and conclude that while RAW files are recognised, JPGs are not seen by the software.
       
      To my further surprise I found that the JPGs which were not recognised by Aperture would happily import to iPhoto.
       
      I cannot remember whether I ever shot JPG with the M before it went back to Solms, so I have no way of knowing for sure if this is something new. I am completely baffled and would be interested to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience.

      Hi all, this is my very first post in this forum, my name is Francesco, I'm from Italy and I shooted from I was 5yo. Today I have a Nikon D800, but in the past I had also other reflex. Today I shoot also with Canonflex, a very old film-reflex. I'm interested in understatndi quality of native not retouched file from Leica Monochrom.
       
      I read several comments on quality of RAW/jpg file, can someone share with me a non-retouched file?
       
      I'm just curious to understand quality of file, without any kind of usage in Photoshop or Lightroom.
       
      I noticed, on LFI or flickr, that some photo are so clear, to seems "unreal". I don't understand if it's conseguence of terrific postprocessing, or if Leica Monochrom is a terrific camera

      I wonder if anyone else here is waiting for Aperture to support Monochrom's linear RAW files.
       
      I have used Aperture since version 1 and I am well used to it. I have tried Lightroom numerous times (including version 3 and now version 4) but still prefer the non-modular system in Aperture, it's full-screen mode, etc...
       
      Usually RAW support lags a couple months behind the camera release. Well, it's been 6 months since the MM was released and no support yet. Quite disappointing I must admit.
       
      I understand that this support requires the collaboration between Leica and Apple. Two companies known for not disclosing much of their roadmap/plans. I know people involved in this kind of development (new software versions, features, etc) are usually under NDA, but it would be great if at least some hint that this is in the works showed up somewhere... Already emailed Apple... what would be the best channel to reach Leica?
       
      Nonetheless, enjoying the camera...
