I get that one camera and one lens can't do it all, but on the other hand, here's one that simply never disappoints.
Remember, I'm not a working pro although I know more than I let on. After so many years in this industry and hanging out with people like Tony Corbell, Roberto Valenzuela, Denis Reggie, Jerry Ghionis and Michele Celentano, just to name a few and then co-authoring books with Don Blair, Bambi Cantrell, Joe Buissink and Scott Bourne I had to learn something.
For the last year I've been shooting with a LUMIX FZ1000 and I simply love it. It makes me look far better than I deserve. I thought it would be a fun post to share a little of what I'm talking about.
I needed a quick shot to make a point with a blog post while at WPPI. The post took a shot at the MGM gouging on their $5.00 price for a very small bottle of water. All of their pools below gave me a little more help with the post as I wrote:
"I know we're in the desert. I know that water is tough to come by except to fill your pools. I get that you deliver the water in a stunning plastic bottle with a classic label...but what makes it worth $5.00?"
For me there are two big things that over and over again come through - the quality of the images and the ease of travel with lighter more compact gear. I'll leave the discovery of the hundreds of other benefits to you guys, the professionals!
However, while anybody can shoot a sunset, here's one last favorite from this past year! It was from the balcony of the Marriott in Marco Island, Florida. I was easily 400 yards from the beach, but could still pick up a few sunset walkers on their way by, one of them fishing.
This camera has become Ann's number one choice for all the stunning work she's been shooting for over a year.
So, don't take our word for it, check out the LUMIX Lounge, then wander into a LUMIX dealer and check out the entire line for yourself.
