With the release of the Photographer’s Guide to the Leica D-Lux (Typ 109), by Alexander White, White Knight Press provides a clearly written and comprehensive guide to the use of this advanced compact camera. The 242-page book, available in both paperback and eBook formats, shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to capture excellent images and video sequences with the D-Lux. The book goes well beyond the information contained in the camera's own user's manual, and explains the camera’s controls for autofocus, manual focus, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, white balance, and ISO, as well as numerous other settings. Using step-by-step guides where appropriate, the book also discusses the D-Lux’s many options for playback, setup, and customizing the operation of its various buttons, dials, and other controls.
The book contains more than 350 color photographs showing the camera’s controls, display screens, and menus. The guide also includes examples of images captured using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Photo Style settings; the Filter button picture effects, which provide the ability to customize the appearance of images in dramatic ways; and the camera’s features for continuous shooting and shooting in high-contrast lighting conditions.
The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the D-Lux camera, which offers manual control of exposure and focus during movie recording, and which provides ultra-high definition 4K recording of motion pictures. The book also covers the use of the camera's capability for remote control and image transfer over Wi-Fi networks.
In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories for the D-Lux, including cases, external flash units, and other items, and includes a list of web sites and other resources for further information. The book includes an appendix with helpful Quick Tips that explain how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.
The book is available now for $9.99 in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats (available for download through whiteknightpress.com) and other sellers. The paperback version is available for $29.95 through Amazon.com and other online sellers.
