Leica D-Lux 4: Ozzy Goes To The Vet

"I have a mean Mommy."

"I won't go to the vet quietly."

I grabbed the Leica D-Lux 4 for the car interior shots of Ozzy today. Ozzy went to the Vet today for X-Rays of his hips and knees. The poor little guy has a luxating patella, which is a floating knee cap. I would hear it pop now and again. Well, between his x-rays and his surgery, and what i just spent on his yearly shots, this little dude is going to put me in a bit of debt. i kick myself for not getting the dog insurance. At any rate, I used the Leica to grab a quick shot of his expression on his face. He's not a happy camper and he trembled the whole time at the vet. I'm going for a short hike to take my mind off him going under anesthesia.

I was having a bit of a stupid moment when trying to meter in the car. Without my reading glasses on, I had a bit of trouble centering the meter. I think I was just a bit nervous about my dog going to the vet. The D-Lux 4 is a gem of a camera, and I especially love the wide angle on it. What I don't like is the noise at anything higher than ISO 200. There is a definite difference between the quality of file in the M8.2 and this little camera. Still, I love the camera. A little noise can be reminiscent of film. LOL!


  1. Poor Ozzy, all dogs hate going to the vet. Great photos.

  2. He actually trembles now when we get there. It's sad to see.
