Ahhhh, Snoop Dogg loves the ladies. The Dogg Pound made a surprise reunion which started the night’s performance.

Photographer’s Notes:

 

Camera Used:

  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

Lens Used:

  • Leica DC Vario-Summicron 5.1-19.2mm f/2-3.3

While a point and shoot camera is hardly the type of camera you would want to take to a concert to get good pictures, sometimes that’s all the venues will let you take in. This is where the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 comes into play. This is the same lens that is on the Leica D-LUX 5 but with a Panasonic body AND for half the price. What you get in this awesome packed point and shoot is a Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens that is capable of shooting at f/2.8 from 24mm-70mm (though on the 70mm the aperture is f/3.0) mounted to a Panasonic Lumx body. The camera handles high ISO fairly well as shown in these pictures. All the above pictures were taken with ISO’s between 800-3200.

The camera has full manual controls, aperture priority shooting, shutter priority shooting, a 3 frame burst mode, built in flash, and the ability to shoot in RAW. What else do you need? Oh yeah it even has a hot shoe so you can attach a flash or other accessories to the camera! While this camera is not the the smallest camera to carry around such as the Canon PowerShot S95, I do like it for the Leica lens and hot shoe.

So the next time somebody asks you, “Wow what camera did you use to take those pictures!?” You can tell them I took them with this point and shoot!
