I've been playing with the LUMIX GX85 and what a kick. For the first time, I tried shooting in the Post Focus Mode and then stacking the images. I've shared several posts on the feature, most recently a demo with the NEW GH5 by good buddy and Lumix Luminary, Bob Coates.
This morning I grabbed the GX85, the Lumix 30mm macro lens, a tripod and headed out to the butterfly garden. All I wanted was to show you the process which couldn't be simpler. While this is hardly a scientific demo, here are some of the focus points I chose to stack and blend. It's all done in camera and using the feature couldn't be easier.
The flowers of the lantana are relatively small, probably no more than 1-2 inches across for a cluster. I started out in search of a monarch butterfly, and typical of chasing critters, they're never there when you need them!
Check out the GX85, the new GH5 and the rest of the Lumix family with a trip to the Lumix Lounge, and then your Lumix dealer. Take the time to get to know the Luminary team. They're some of the most diverse artists and educators in the industry, and an outstanding resource to be in your network!
