I purchased this book, because the CD instructions That were supplied with the LX5, were a little confusing in places, and I needed something I could dip in to as and when required. The information in the book is easy to get to, and more importantly, it's easy to understand. I fully recommend anyone who wants to get to grips with the LX5, to buy this book, which will enable them to use their camera to it's full potential. I now have much more control over my camera and enjoy using it when ever I can. I also purchased Understanding Exposure, by Bryan Peterson, which has increased my confidence in photography even more. I no longer feel a complete novice anymore, because with this information,and loads of practice, it is a very satisfactory hobby. I hope this helps.

This is everything that the LUMIX official manual isn't:

Attractive - well laid out, clear systemmatic approach, well illustrated.

Good technical writing style... covers the essential points.

Nice to dip in and out of.... PDFs are hopeless for browsing to my mind.

Good section on tips, links and other resources.

Written by a knowledgable photographer who wants the reader to get the most of a camera he obviously likes himself..

Highly recommended

This is a great book, but my mistake was in buying the Kindle version. The Lumix LX5 is a complex beast and one really needs to be able to find the answer to a question quickly. The problem with a Kindle is that moving from site to site is fine but finding a particular reference and then sorting through them take too long. I recommend the book, but buy the book version rather than the Kindle one, or better still buy both.

This book help enormously as the instructions on disk only give a description of the camera's functions.
I found through this book the best way to set up the camera for stills and video.
Also, the instructions supplied with the camera are on disk. I prefer to browse an instruction book any day and this book fits the bill.
Worth the money.

The Lumix LX5 is a very good camera, but it is let down by the cheapskate way that Panasonic delivers the 236 page instruction book as a pdf file on a CD. One could, I suppose, print it out, but you would be left with a hefty pile of paper to cart around. This book solves that problem by providing an excellent (and portable!) user guide to the camera. The chapters are well structured, progressing from using the camera in automatic "point and shoot" mode to fully manual operation of focus and exposure etc. It also takes the reader through using the LX5's rather impressive video modes. I read the book a chapter at a time, with the camera switched on and following the step by step exploration of the camera's functions. Having worked my way through the book to the end, I now feel that I have a comprehensive understanding of what this excellent camera is capable of.

Mr White's book is concise and written with great clarity; it is an outstanding example of a technical instruction book. My advice to anyone with an LX5 would be to buy this book and forget the Panasonic pdf!

I recently bought a Panasonic Lumix LX5, which had version 2 firmware already installed. This book was written when version 1 firmware was still current, but I have found it very useful. It is written in simple language, from the point of view of a real user. I learned a great deal about what the options actually do, what the variables actually do, and in what circumstance they may be useful. It will be an invaluable reference source as I gain experience with the LX5. I am very glad to have a copy.

This is a bit uninspired but there's little choice for this camera i.e. none. You will probably learn more but fiddling with the camera to be honest. I guess it is good that I have it as a reference but the book itself need more pictures and more creativity as it is not well written in my opinion.

Quite simply the best instruction manual I have ever come across - for anything. Set out so well. It will not be overpowering for the novice & if you have the basic knowledge of photography it will help you become better at your skills with your LX5. If you own an LX5 you simply must buy this book.
