Headed off to Dragon Con in Atlanta before Labor Day I packed up my GH3 and just two lenses, the 12-35 mm and the 45-150mm. As so many professionals have already discovered, Panasonic's mirrorless technology has given us outstanding quality with compact, easy to travel with gear. Plus, the system's ease of use together with so many features is remarkable, especially in low light level situations. Plus, during the Dragon Con parade, I was also able to easily switch back and forth from still images to video.
But let's talk about Dragon Con, just a little. I explained it briefly in my first post, but every year at Labor Day thousands of sci-fi fans invade Atlanta. Out of a rumored 60,000 in attendance this year, my guess is 3000 - 4000 came in full costume and these were some of my favorites. Because the show is held in a 3-4 block radius at five different hotels, you're constantly bumping into people everywhere you go. What's hysterical is watching the Atlanta residents just walk right by, as if this was just a normal every day experience.
These are all grab shots, pretty much right out of the can, shot as jpegs.
If it's true "the eyes are the gateway to the soul", then we're all in trouble with these three on the loose!
Besides me just wanting to share the fun of Dragon Con, Panasonic's Luminaries have repeatedly written about the features they love the most. From commercial to wedding to portraiture to fine art and video, in both the LUMIX Lounge and here in Luminary Corner, feature after feature has been talked about and shared by some of the most talented artists in the industry.
I know this sounds like a commercial, but you owe it to yourself to check out what mirrorless technology is bringing to the party - especially Panasonic!
