Bob Coates has shared a lot of great how-to content here at SCU. Having spent a lot of time with him over the years, I've seen his style change and his creativity both as an artist and an educator explode.
Bob is part of a pretty amazing group of artists, Panasonic's Luminary team. If Bob isn't already on your radar, check out his Successful Photographer blog as well as his presence in the LUMIX Lounge. And, while you're there, check out all the Luminaries. There's no shortage of creativity in this amazing group!
I took my Lumix GH4 out for a hike yesterday along with its friends, the 7-14mm f4, its cousin the 12-35 f2.8 and its big brother the 35-100mm f2.8. This combination of camera and lenses gives me the 35mm equivalent focal range of 14-to 200mm. Add a spare battery, a five in one 20 inch Westcott reflector, some extension tubes and put it all in a small Tenba ‘Switch 10’ bag and I’m ready for almost anything I might come across photographically.
Oh, did I mention all of that gear weighs just a bit over six pounds? Throw in a MeFoto backpacker tripod and water for the hike and it’s still under ten pounds. TOTAL!
The Lumix Micro 4/3rds Mirrorless system rocks!
I think I’ll take the kit out for a hike again tomorrow!
