Panasonic L1 DSLR - Aperture|
According to Yin Wong: "On P mode, the Panasonic L1 selects 6 sec. at F3.5. Since I want a much longer shutter time, I turn the Aperture Ring to F22 [and effectively switch to Aperture-Priority mode]. The camera's meter indicates there's not enough light, so I turn the aperture to F16 and then F11. At F11, the camera meters a 50 sec. shutter time. The Panasonic L1 positively shines here: even at this long shutter speed, the noise reduction works great, producing a nice smooth blurring effect of the background."
Panasonic Lumix L1 - Body and Design
Yin Wong continues: "As Panasonic's first ever digital SLR, the much-anticipated Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 both looks and feels like a well-designed and professional camera. The construction is first-class and the large f2.8 Leica lens staring right at you is a pleasure to use with its three rings. Both camera and lens have been designed and built from the ground up specifically for digital, and Olympus / Panasonic / Leica engineers could pick and choose and innovate where they saw fit. The result is a digital SLR with a distinct 35mm rangefinder look and feel." You want to learn more about the Panasonic Lumix camera? Continue to read the Panasonic Lumix L1 review at Photoxels.
Photoxels was founded in 2002 by MyKhanh Wong (Owner, Editor) and Yin Wong (Contributing Editor), the editors behind Photoxels. In 2001, we went on the Web to learn about digital cameras like everyone else. But it seems that the more we read about digital cameras, the more reviews we scrutinized, and the more we searched... the more confused we became. If we were somewhat confused about which digital cameras to buy before visiting the digital camera review sites, we became even more confused after reading most of the (very) technical reviews. Slowly, one article and one review at a time, we pieced together what were really important to know about digital cameras and clarified many of the digital photography-related terminology. We decided to share what we learned on the Internet, and Photoxels was born.
