The Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a compact zoom camera designed with the enthusiast and advanced photographer in mind. For those shooters looking for a very capable camera with a small profile—especially when compared to a DSLR—the LX100 hits the mark, and it does so without compromise in quality. With its Four Thirds sensor, its 24–75mm focal range, and its Leica f/1.7–2.8 lens, the LX100 has received much high praise. In fact, DP Review awarded the camera its highest ever score in its camera class and called it “one of the best photographers’ cameras on the market and probably the best zoom compact ever made.” In addition, the inclusion of 4k video and 4k photo mode put the LX100 in a class by itself. The Pocket Guide to the Panasonic LUMIX LX100 is a quick and to-the-point companion guide to help you make the most of this highly capable advanced camera. The basic operation of the LX100 is fairly straightforward for those photographers with an understanding of exposure and composition—adjusting the aperture and shutter speed are simple enough. But there are many next-generation features, functions, and customizable setups that even a seasoned photographer might overlook or not take full advantage of—features that, when implemented, could make all the difference in getting the shot. In this concise guide, Panasonic LUMIX Luminary Rob Knight shares his real-world experience with the LX100. Rob doesn’t spend time rehashing the basics of the exposure triangle; instead, he dives into a curated collection of the LX100’s best features and capabilities that he uses regularly. Some of the topics covered include: • The best focus modes and settings based on the shooting situation • Customizable Function (Fn) button and Control Dial options • In-Camera RAW processing • Shooting in Silent mode • Multiple exposures and panoramas • 4k photo mode • WiFi settings and features • And much more! Rob also discusses the coolest and best features of the LX100 that truly make a difference in how you use the camera, such as back-button focus, the pros and cons of electronic vs. mechanical shutter, how to customize the camera so it feels like you have a kit bag of prime lenses rather than a continuous zoom, and using external flash. Finally, Rob includes his favorite camera settings, setups, and suggestions for specific shooting situations, such as street photography, travel photography, macro photography, and timelapse photography.

Holiness for Everyone

The Practical Spirituality of St. Josemaria Escriva

God intends nothing less than sainthood for you! The early Church held that all believers could achieve holiness. Over time, this conviction was largely forgotten. Sainthood seemed to be an honor only intended for a select few among the priests and religious. Eric Sammons tells how twentieth century Spanish priest and canonized saint Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, recovered the message of the universal call to holiness. Declared the saint of ordinary life by Pope John Paul II, St. Josemaria developed a spirituality directed toward the sanctity of every man and woman. His legacy is the belief that each of us can, by God's grace, achieve holiness through the course of our ordinary life and work. The heart of Sammons' practical guide to the spiritual life is a detailed examination of the steps in St. Josemaria's thoughtful plan for building a saintly life in spite of your hectic work and home life in a world filled with distractions and temptations. Strive for your own personal holiness as you implement your daily plan to: --Be a Contemplative in the Midst of a Busy World --Live a Life of Prayer --Recognize the Presence of God --Make a Plan of Life --Make Your Work a Way to Heaven Holiness for Everyone will inspire you as it sets your feet on the path to sainthood. "Eric Sammons shows that St. Josemaria has recovered the most powerful truth of classic Christianity and restated it in a way that is compelling for men and women of our time." ---From the Foreword by Scott Hahn

Starve and Immolate tells the story of leftist political prisoners in Turkey who waged a deadly struggle against the introduction of high security prisons by forging their lives into weapons. Weaving together contemporary and critical political theory with political ethnography, Banu Bargu analyzes the death fast struggle as an exemplary though not exceptional instance of self-destructive practices that are a consequence of, retort to, and refusal of the increasingly biopolitical forms of sovereign power deployed around the globe. Bargu chronicles the experiences, rituals, values, beliefs, ideological self-representations, and contentions of the protestors who fought cellular confinement against the background of the history of Turkish democracy and the treatment of dissent in a country where prisons have become sites of political confrontation. A critical response to Michel Foucault's Discipline and Punish, Starve and Immolate centers on new forms of struggle that arise from the asymmetric antagonism between the state and its contestants in the contemporary prison. Bargu ultimately positions the weaponization of life as a bleak, violent, and ambivalent form of insurgent politics that seeks to wrench the power of life and death away from the modern state on corporeal grounds and in increasingly theologized forms. Drawing attention to the existential commitment, sacrificial morality, and militant martyrdom that transforms these struggles into a complex amalgam of resistance, Bargu explores the global ramifications of human weapons' practices of resistance, their possibilities and limitations.
