Yes, yes, I know, this is no proper Image of the Day. This is just a test image, but this is part of my review of the Panasonic DMC-LX5, and the technical data of this image are quite remarkable.
I was standing down in the garage, my back leaning against a pillar, the elbows braced against the body, the camera held in the most steady position, and it took me four attempts to get this image, but still:
ISO 80, f2 and 1s. Yeah, that’s right. One second. Hand-held.
How’s image stabilization on this camera, you ask? Remarkable, I say 😛
Shooting at f2 with a DSLR brings a considerable DOF penalty, thus even though you may get a sharp image, the depth of field is so shallow, that the image frequently still looks wrong. The smaller sensor of the LX5 captures a higher DOF, thus f2 is perfectly usable, as you see.
