Just for fun, and to make a point, I took a bunch of pictures this morning when I walked Misty around 6:45 am. I was really interested in seeing what I would capture using the Leica D-LUX-6 without me doing any tweaking of the images afterwards. These are as the raw images appeared on my monitor as Adobe standard images and then converted into jpegs and resized for this posting. It was the only calibration available for this camera in Adobe 7.2. I wanted to see as the camera did, even including the lens flare as I took pictures looking into the sun, at an approximate equivalent focal length of 100mm.
I haven’t been making many pictures for myself, so I made these quickly for this blog. Marcia has them growing close to the front door, so it only took me a minute to make them. I am busy with Homewood event photography (hundreds of pictures last Monday and again this coming Monday) and I’m also working on multiple books of my travels at the same time.
Just to show you that I also like the colors made with the D-LUX 6. The first image was still in the morning and the other two were early afternoon. The first was zoomed in and the next two were wide. I have been leaving the aspect ratio square for a while since I like it for flowers, etc. and seeing how it works for other views.
This older, used, small sensor point and shoot camera is one of the best such cameras I have used. I almost want to put it away and not use it just to keep it longer; but, I shipped my Olympus PEN-F back to Olympus for some minor repairs so I might use the D-LUX 6 more for a while as I walk around.
One reminder, I am using the D-LUX 6 raw files along with Adobe LR Classic to process the images, so what you see isn’t what you get straight out of the camera with jpegs.
