You can. I did this with PaintShop Pro X2 although Elements can do it too.

I guess I need to play with this capability;

Den - Off the top of my head. You need to make a selection of the centre of the picture (I used a rectangle) then invert the selection. Now add blur (gaussian) to the point you're happy with and you should get what you're after.
I did use the in-camera miniaturisation mode which was OK but doing it in camera isn't as precise as doing it in post-production.

Hope that is of some help. :)

Derek I've had both a G11 and now an LX5.

Frankly the lens protrudes so much on the LX5 that it's only slightly smaller than the G11 was.
It is lighter.

I carry or have carried both in a suitable pocket in my scottevest. It works very well for me. I wouldn't think to carry either in pants pockets, or a shirt pocket. Some jackets have large enough pockets.

Cargot pants certainly have large enough pockets.

If carrying is an issue, and it sometimes is for me, I would rush and buy an S95 and put a Richard Franiec grip on it.

Finally, the screen on my G11 was always usable. The viewfinder was a welcome asset. On the other hand, the screen on the LX5 is not readable when I take the camera skiing. So I bought the electronic view finder. It's costly!

I regret not buying the S95 and Franiec grip.

Best,

Thanks for this: I think it I'm going to have to handle them both to make a decision. Only thing for me is, I had a Panny G1 - didn't like the colours at all, nowhere as nice as Canon IMO, very 'hyped', so if the Lx5 takes shots of a similar type, I think the G12 will take it.


Thanks for the advice!


Derek

Derek--good you're looking closely. I preferred the colour rendition from my G9 and G11 to the other Pany I have..ZS3. Much more dynamic, and more pleasing to me.
The LX5 is in a different league. It's a great camera too. However, the lens on the Pany LX5 is a jewel. It's the best feature.
When I bought mine it came down to a coin toss between the S95 and the Pany LX5. I chose the Pany. Then I added the electronic view finder later.
I gave up portability.
And you're right==you need to handle both.

Look at colours, and look at high ISO performance. I stay at or below ISO 400 with the Pany.

Mind you, the Lx viewfinder is detachable, so that might make it a contender in the portability stakes (apart from the cost factor!), and then of course, there's the swivel screen on the G12..(which was one thing on the G1 Panny that I did like)

I wonder why someone doesn't just make the perfect compact, and have done with it?

Pocket Slim,
detachable VF,
5x zoom,
swivel screen.
RAW
Full manual/AV/TV

Sometimes I wonder if manufacturers may have a tacit agreement between themselves: "we'll do the swivel screen, you do the detachable VF: let's keep the punters on the hook"..etc:)

LOL....there's SO many technologies that I think this about. E-readers and tablets are one definitly. I look at all the different options out there and each one has a lot of good points with a deal breaker. Why can't someone just put together all the good points and leave out the dealbreakers.

Congratulaltions!
Take an extra battery. Charge it fully so the internal (memory date/time) non-removable battery is charged.

Best,


Dave

Don't think I've seen any pictures on here with the Nostalgia scene setting. I guess it would be fitting for me to post one. Here's one I grabbed this weekend of an abandoned farm house at my soon-to-be-mother-in-law's house.

They call it the nostalgia setting...I call it the creepy setting.

Good thing this camera has image stabilization because I was shaking a bit while reaching my hands into the enclosure. One of my son's fast and evil pets.
