I recommend this book to anyone that wants to get the most out of this great little camera.
After 15 years of buying digital cameras, I figure I understand them. But the manual for the LX7 is horrible. If you need to do anything with the advanced features, you have to struggle to figure it out. I printed the manual from the CD, but it is big and bulky.
I credit this book for making every feature on the LX7 accessible. It is like taking a course on the LX7 if you just read it. If there are features like the Custom settings, that are obscure to implement, it works OK. I don't know how people figure out the advanced features from the Panny manual.
I think more people should learn how to make the iA mode work. Mostly you use the half press as a kind of manual expoure. You get the exposure you want by tricking the iA into giving it to you. I don't like the M mode. I remember exposure meters, still have one. But the way M works is clunky. It would be better to think of the exposure reading rather than chase the screen display. Follow the screen exposure, how it looks, is my advice. Which you can do in iA. Anyway, it's sort of a old school point of view in this book. But it's well thought out.
I have to say that after only a few days with this guide and my camera, I have found and explored a number of different camera settings that I am convinced will enhance my photo taking.
After 30 years of using SLRs, DSLRs and a few ILCs, I am not a wholly unlearned camera user. But this guide has cleared up many of the special features of the LX7 for me and I expect that it will continue to do so as I explore it further.
It is well illustrated with images of the camera's screen so that you can see the camera settings and menus as the author discusses them. At times it seems there are too many internal cross-references, but that is understandable given the depth of the author's coverage of features. The alternative would be interminable footnotes like a legal brief might contain.
Highly recommended to get the most out of your camera. The digital version is quite good and a relative bargain at $9.99.
A big plus (in my opinion) is that it doesn't just tell you HOW to use different features, but it tells you WHEN and WHY to use them.
If you're an expert photographer, you might find this book redundant (though it's great for referencing), but if not - go for it!
