This LX3 has shutter control and it is good. The photo above was shot round 8 when it was dark and it’s overexposed. That being because I kept the shutter open for like 15 seconds. Low light is the holy-grail of photography for me, and this camera has pretty good manual controls. Keeping the shutter open is pants without a tripod or physically putting the camera down, and it doesn’t work for people. But it’s interesting nonetheless. Below I photographed the inside of my refrigerator with the door closed. I thought there were far more awesome things going on while I wasn’t looking. But still. This is the first time I’ve seen the inside of my fridge with the door closed. Better living through technology indeed.
There is nothing in my fridge except bottled water and beer. It really freaks my mom out.
There was a minute where the Fuji F30 was the best camera on the planet. For a minute it did better in low-light than, like, Dom’s SLR. Then the SLRs really stepped up and out. The new SLRs can shoot people indoors at night at insane resolution. And the compacts haven’t really caught up. ISO is one way of getting low light right. I think the Panasonic LX3 I’m using has crappier ISO than the Fuji, but it has manual controls. So I can simply keep the shutter open to let more light in. Or fuck with the F-Stop or any number of things. I honestly don’t know what the F thing is, I think it’s the hole in a violin. But there are any number of… possibilities.
