In order to travel light, I only took a Lumix LX3 digital and an Olympus Trip 35 film camera with me during a recent trip to Philadelphia. I used the Trip 35 for some night photography and here is my take of Liberty Bell shot on Fuji Superia 400 Xtra, with the Trip set on manual @ f2.8, 1/40 sec.

I took this just to test the low light abilities of the Pentax PC35AF. I used Fuji Superia 400 film, and rested the camera on a fence. The exposure was automatic. The camera probably fired at 1/8 sec. with the aperture wide open at f2.8.

The Lumix LX3 performs very nicely during night photography. Here is an example taken from the top of the GE building at Rockefeller Center in New York City. It was taken basically hand-held, just with my elbow leaning on a fence. The very effective image stabilization combined with the fast 24mm lens allows for good performance under low-light conditions.
