Leica D-Lux 5 and Amazing Macro mode

I updated PS CS5 and got Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter 6.2 that supports editing DL5 RAW files. Their website doesn't list DL5 as one of the supported cameras. But, it works! I can finally adjust blown out highlights.

 

That said, I've been shooting MACRO with the DL5 and I have to admit it's quite amazing. I though the Ricoh GRD3 had great macro capabilities and it does--but DL5 is just great. I can get as close as 1cm to a subject, I have to make sure I don't end up scratching the lens with it.

 

I think the bokeh looks great. The colors are great, and it does amazingly well with focusing. I shots of my girls involve pointing the camera at their faces while they were playing and simply shooting blindly and seeing what comes out of it. Doing this was quite fun.

 

The DL5 is turning out to be a great camera for me.
