The first, really only important question to answer is "why spend the bucks to buy this book?"

The Leica D-Lux5 comes boxed with a nicely designed, easy to understand, clearly written instructional manual. A CD inside the box contains a more comprehensive guide to your new top-of-the-line point-and-shoot. So why throw around $25 when you already have more than you probably want to read about your camera and how to use it?

The answer is because chances are you're an amateur photographer and you want to take the best pictures you can and feel comfortable that you're getting the most out of your Leica - and believe me there are a lot of gizmos and gadgets, features and functions, tightly packed in that sleek black metal case to get to know about and get used to.

The first time I picked up my new camera and checked it out, I saw an awful lot that meant little to me. The switch on the top is simple and anyone can figure out that it turns the camera on and then off. But the top of the camera also has the lever that controls the optical zoom. The back of the camera has nine buttons and a wheel, all controlling at least one but usually more functions. A door on the bottom opens into the heart of the camera and has slots for memory and battery.

Four little pinholes on the bottom let sound in. The side of the camera has a portal for the cables and cords that connect the camera to the outside world, your computer and television. All of that is on the outside where you can see it. It's the thought of all that's crammed inside that causes all the angst, at least for this Leica noob (me).

Alexander White's guidebook has the answer to what all these dials, levers, settings and switches do and how do they interplay to take really great snapshots.

I had the same guide for the D-Lux 4 and decided to get this one when I got my D-Lux 5 after looking at the content preview. It really is a different book, addressing a different camera. I love the author's simple way to describing everything. Simple in the way he explains, but don't get me wrong, he doesn't leave out anything here. Wonderful book. Recommend for everyone except advanced photographers.

I agree with P. Li's review. This is an excellent book that gives very useful information about the D-Lux 5. But I think the book is useful even to advanced photographers who may not know all the features of the D-Lux 5. I am a professional photographer and normally use Leica Ms. But I do not want to travel with them. Without this book, I would not learned about all the features of the camera that aren't covered in the manual. I highly recommend this.

Every Leica owner should read this!
Well written, concise and with good advice.
Hard to believe that what appears to be a simple little camera has so many options.

I bought this book as the Kindle download for my iPad. I read it in a couple of nights. The author does a great job of explaining the various functions and features of the LX5. However, I wish that he had delved more into HIS settings, and WHY he chose those particular ones.
Overall, compared to the manual that comes with the camera, this is an excellent value. I find myself referring back to it over and over again to find certain features and functions. His clear, concise explanations make it easy to follow along whenever you wish to make a change, or modify your settings.
I do recommend this book if you are serious about learning about all the features of your little gem of a camera.

I agree with the other reviewers, this book is carefully written and is an indispensable adjunct to the Leica pdf download manual. Just having the index is a big help.
