All the new year revellers in Tobermory gather around the clock tower at the harbour to bring in the bells. I didn’t want to carry my serious camera or a tripod as it would have limited my ability to carry champagne! The trusty little LX3 was therefore stuffed in a pocket. I used the LX3’s “fireworks” mode which is unusual for me as I never bother with the automatic modes but I am still playing with the camera and was curious about what it can do. One excellent feature is that it lets you save in RAW format even when you are in “scene” modes; usually cameras make you default to jpegs when you are in the automated modes, so this is another grown up and sensible feature.
Anyway, I wish you all the best for 2009 from Tobermory
