Most of you know I'm not a professional photographer, my expertise is on the management/marketing side of the business. However, I've been fortunate to work with some of the finest artists in the world, going back to my days at Hasselblad and Rangefinder/WPPI.
I'm also not a Panasonic Luminary and this is Luminary Corner, but I'm so blown away by what this camera can do and wanted to share a few images. A month ago we hit the road for a week, spending time with family and friends in Ohio. I took my GH3 and just one lens. I simply had the best time I've had in years with a camera in my hand.
Besides it being light and so easy to travel with, I love working with the touch screen; the viewing capability in low light; my ability to switch back and forth from still images and video; and even some of the artistic presets. In fact, Bob Coates, one of the Luminaries, did a guest post on using the Illustrative Art Setting a few months ago.
There's a car show in my home town every Friday night in the town square. I love the detail and craftsmanship of virtually every car on display, especially the work that's been done on the engines.
In terms of the GH3, while I'm not a big fan of in-camera manipulation there are a couple of sweet presets. These were all shot in the "Expressive" mode which just tweaks the saturation enough to make it perfect on a subject like this.
The quality and features Panasonic has put into the LUMIX family is pretty remarkable. For the first time in years there's a camera with me almost all the time!
