Photographer's Guide to the Leica D-Lux 5 is a follow-up to the author's earlier guides to the Leica D-Lux 4, Panasonic Lumix LX3, and Panasonic Lumix LX5 digital cameras. The new book, like the earlier ones, explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features. The book does not assume any specialized knowledge by the reader, but adopts a patient and helpful tone in explaining topics such as autofocus, manual focus, aperture priority, shutter priority, macro photography, and RAW files. Besides providing guidance about all basic operations of the camera, the book includes introductions to advanced topics including astrophotography, infrared photography, street photography, and creating 3D images. The book is illustrated with more than 150 color photographs and includes a full table of contents and index.
