I went out today to take an hdr shot with my LX3 of downtown Nanaimo, but I have to go back and try again as I learned a few things when back on the computer. I find framing a photo on an lcd screen to be pretty hard, much harder than using a viewfinder on a dslr for whatever reason, and when I came back and looked at my framing up large it didn't love it. Oh well. Today's result is up in this post. The ghosting is on purpose!
As for what is getting close. The Pentax K7 is, that is what. Check out this blog for the newest photo and rumor.
