Panasonic LX7 Test: Ladles Under Maintenance

These large ladles are used to transport molten steel around the shop. They carry 180 tons at a time. They are kept hot inside because if you pour hot steel in a cold ceramic lining it will fracture. If you look in the background you can see the flame of one of the preheaters that heat them.


These shots are for an LX7 review which you can see by clicking here.


I got a powerful little "enthusiast" camera called the Panasonic DMC-LX7. Can it do what my micro four thirds cameras and my previous APS-C cameras did? I took it around the steel mill where I work and also shot in an old pumphouse on the property that's been abandoned for 50 years. I shot both straight single-shot and some 3 shot brackets that I turned into HDR. This camera did a GREAT job on this material -- and it fits in my pocket! (Tightly, lol)


Panasonic DMC-LX7 camera with it's fixed Leica designed lens that is 24-90mm equivalent and f/1.4-2.3
