Since most of you are working professional photographers, I don't have the level of expertise the LUMIX Ambassadors have to explain why they're shooting LUMIX for their professional work, especially with the LUMIX GH5 and Lumix G9.
However, I'm well-qualified to share my favorite cameras to travel with. Plus, on many occasions, especially if we're on the road, my wife has wanted to grab a camera, and she's got the passion and the eye, but not the technical background to think through the best way to capture an image.
What I love most about the entire LUMIX line is how compact and light they are. Then comes their ability to shoot in low light situations at times when I would never have anticipated being able to handhold the camera for the exposure. Last on the list, but really first in priority is the quality of my images. I know a few of you will roll your eyes at the idea of shooting in "IA" mode (Intelligent Auto), but it's incredibly accurate.
Check out this very short video with LUMIX Ambassador, Suzette Allen taking you through how IA mode works on LUMIX cameras.
