That unique feel Panasonic DMC-L1K Body a traditional Leica comes from a sense of precision. Not only is the machine precise, Leica was careful to leave out what didn't help make great pictures.
Untrue to that heritage, the back of the L1 feels quite cluttered. Unlike the Leica M-series, the L1 has a grip.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 Review: Digital Photography Review
There's a grip for your bottom three fingers, but your index finger has to reach all the way up over the fat top deck to perch upon center Panasonic DMC-L1K Body the shutter speed dial to find the shutter button, whereas the E had the shutter out on the much taller grip. As a result, I have to bring my middle finger up off the grip, where it covers the Lumix logo and sometimes the IR sensor. Now I have only two fingers on the grip, one over the IR Panasonic DMC-L1K Body, and one on the shutter button.
I'm not a fan of camera straps, but attach one to the Panasonic L1, and you have to constantly swipe it out of the way to get to the shutter button. It's so very Ergonomics that I really don't think anyone was thinking more than, "The L1 must look cool and retro.

Though it juts out into your hand, the strap lug is at least polished smooth and round. So off with the strap.
Those who like straps, beware. As for the thumb side of the grip, the unique position of the power switch would seem Panasonic DMC-L1K Body be a boon, but I fear that I will accidentally switch the camera off when twisting from vertical to horizontal shooting. It hasn't happened yet because the switch is fairly stiff, but it would.
The Command dial, also right next to Panasonic DMC-L1K Body thumb, is in good position to be easily activated when making adjustments, but it can also be accidentally activated too often. With the exception of the highest and lowest shutter speeds, you can set exposure and aperture manually Panasonic DMC-L1K Body a dial, just like the old days.
It's great to see dials with shutter speed and aperture actually marked with real numbers on a camera again.
The Aperture dial is released with a rounded button on the left of the lens barrel, as it is on most other lenses with an Automatic setting. You have to press this button to enter or exit Automatic Panasonic DMC-L1K Body.
Compatibility Information for DMC-L1K
Set both dials to A, and the camera is in Program mode. Likewise, if you set the Shutter speed dial to A and move the Aperture dial, you're in Aperture Priority mode. Take both of them out Panasonic DMC-L1K Body Auto, and you're in Manual mode, also reflected on the Status display.
The Status display will also confirm what you've set with these dials, so you don't have Panasonic DMC-L1K Body constantly check your analog settings, nor look over the camera to verify what you've set on the lens. It's a welcome return to real camera controls, and could attract a lot of photographers used to making physical Panasonic DMC-L1K Body rather than digital ones.

Rings and dials are far more tactile. Panasonic DMC-L1K Body use can be learned. Then it's more muscle memory that makes your settings than your eyes. Aperture was easy to figure with a quick turn left or right to get my bearings.
I do miss those days. I like switches for the metering and drive modes, though they change too easily.
I'm not so crazy about the power switch or shutter button locations. You can also see the Function buttons mentioned later in the review. The Panasonic DMC-L1K Body on the Panasonic L1 very often moved when I didn't want them to, however.
Occasionally the Shutter speed dial would Panasonic DMC-L1K Body from Auto, or whatever manual setting I'd made, and even the Aperture ring, despite its big locking button, would move from Auto without my Panasonic DMC-L1K Body. It might have been the camera bag that released the lock on the Aperture ring; but the Shutter speed dial is not lockable at all.
So don't be surprised if you're suddenly shooting two second exposures with the L1 when you thought you had it in Auto mode two to eight seconds is the first setting when you leave Auto. I also like the Metering and Drive mode levers that appear from underneath the Shutter speed dial.

Though here again, I find that these magically change on their own. The Metering mode lever especially doesn't want to stay in Matrix Panasonic DMC-L1K Body, instead preferring center-weighted. Maybe it's trying to tell me something.
