Leica D-Lux 4 Fun

I was using the Leica D-Lux 4 the other day and having fun photographing Ozzy and my sister's step-grandkids. Every time I go back to this camera I fall in love with the quality again. It never ceases to amaze me.

I wonder if the X1 and M9 are as much fun to use? I am itching to try them both. I love using the M6 film camera, but not so sure the M9 would fit into my life. Maybe an X1? I would wait until the cameras are updated. I know everyone complains about the slow AF on the X1, but can't you use Zone Focusing on it?

I love how the Leica D-Lux 4 renders black and white files!
I think B&W is my favorite with this camera

Even though the pool is heated, Grace was still cold!

I love how Leica handles the colors. I think color is my favorite. LOL

Anyway, I used different modes with the Leica D-Lux 4 and was happy with each one. I think I used a b&w film mode. I need to re-read the book on this camera. There are so many features and I would like to know them all. Oh yeah, I used flash for the pictures of John posing in the pool. Cool, huh? I never use flash. i was experimenting. I truly need to re-read that "Photographer's guide to the Leica D-Lux 4" book by Alexander S. White!
