I took the Lumix FZ300 with me because I love the 25-600mm zoom. Plus, it's light and the perfect camera just to hang out, and people watch. Like most of the Lumix family, I'm able to quickly switch from single frame to video.
This past Saturday was exceptional because just after we watched the sun go down over the ocean, the moon came up behind us. And, through the entire evening, in between the sun and moon was a celebration of life. Everyone "marching to the tune" of their own drummer...literally.
The shutter button is the farthest forward with the zoom control just in front of it at the top of this image. The red button let's me switch to video with virtually no camera movement and the ability to keep filming!
Everything I need to capture the images I want is at my fingertips. As the lighting changed, along with the activity of the dancers and drummers, I found myself switching from "IA" (Intelligent Auto) to Shutter and Aperture priority.
Check out the complete Lumix line, especially the new GH5, with a visit to the Lumix Lounge. And, follow the schedule for the Luminary team when they're on the road. You'll meet some of the most talented artists/educators in imaging today.
