Behold, the Panasonic Lumix LX3


It was a tough choice between this camera and the Casio Exilim FC100, which could shoot up to 1000fps video for slow motion playback. In the end, the F2.0-2.8, 24mm focal length (35mm equiv.), intuitive user interface and cool retro looks won me over. I tried to get Alan Photo’s limited time offer of $680 with 8gb memory card, card reader, case, mini tripod, battery and lcd protector but both Sim Lim and Funan branches ran out of the black model. In the end I had to proceed to Cathay Photo and bargained their price down from $720 to $685 with just 8gb memory card and a case. It was a good thing, actually, because I really think that Alan Photo should send their staff to Cathay Photo to learn a thing or two about how to not be rude to their customers. Why didn’t I purchase the camera at the IT show? Because they’re selling the LX3s at the recommended retail price of $799, albeit with an additional 8gb memory card on top of Alan Photo’s freebies. Also there was theĀ mob.


Colours of the Night.

Sitting in the front seat of the top level of a double decker bus driving through heavy rain does make one reflect about things that need reflecting upon. That was probably the longest sentence ever used in this blog but I don’t care. It was really therapeutic watching the rain drops on the windows and the lights zooming past. So much so that I had to take a few shots with my camera, not concentrating on the composition but on the wonderful colours of the night. I arranged them all into a mosaic so you can see them all at once.


Contrary to popular belief, there is beauty in the NTU campus.
