    Hi, I`m embarrassed to say i have the instruction book but cant find how i change from electronic to mirror shutter. I am at present on electronic shutter and happy with it but i fancy taking some 10 or 20 second light trail shots which requires the mirror shutter.....Help please....

    Page 199.

    Set the menu
    MENU→[Rec] → [Shutter Type]

    The shutter mode automatically switches based on the recording conditions
    and shutter speed.
    The mechanical shutter mode has higher priority over the electronic
    shutter mode because the mechanical shutter has less function-related
    restrictions when recording with a flash, etc.

    Uses only the mechanical shutter mode to take a picture.

    Uses only the electronic shutter mode to take a picture.

    Shutter and Drive Settings
    Setting the Shutter Type

    In the following cases, recording is performed with an electronic shutter.
    • [] is displayed on the screen
    • When [Burst Rate] is set to [SH]
    • When recording 4K photos
    • When recording using [Post Focus]
    • When [Silent Mode] is set to [ON]

    If you take a picture of a moving subject using the electronic shutter, the subject in the
    picture may be skewed in some cases.

    When you take a picture under a fluorescent or LED lighting fixture using the electronic
    shutter, the recorded picture may have horizontal stripes. If you use a slower shutter
    speed, the horizontal stripes may be reduced.

    I think what follows applies in any [all] of these modes - can't say I paid much attention.

    Those dials don't have any direct relation to the choice of mechanical or electronic shutter. If you mean, how do you set the shutter speed to 10 or 20 seconds, that's a different query.

    Page 102.

    Set the dial to S, and then choose your shutter speed.

    Rotate the rear dial to set the shutter speed
    • The operation can also be performed by rotating the control ring.(→50)
    • When you rotate the control ring or rear dial, an exposure meter
    is displayed. If the correct exposure is not achieved, the numeric
    values of the aperture are shown in red.
    Shutter speeds that can be set (seconds)
    Aperture value
    60 - 1/2000
    (When the mechanical shutter is used)
    1 - 1/16000
    (When the electronic shutter is used)
    F2.8 - F8.0

    I can only get 1sec in time exposure because i am in electronic shutter.......I am looking to get 10 seconds in mechanical shutter but dont know how to change from electronic shutter.

    Did you follow the posted instructions to switch to Mechanical Shutter? Did you check the bit after it which explains which other settings force the electronic shutter to be on (including turning on Silent mode).

    Follow the instructions as Tony said. It is in p140 of this ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camera/om/dmc-lx100_adv_en_om.pdf

    Set the menu

    → [Rec] → [Shutter Type]

The icon on the left is a red camera and the dial on top of the camera is set on S.........Still no joy trying to get the shutter to mirror.......Is it possible i could send a photo of the back of the camera to you? Cheers..Peter.
