It's Mirrorless Monday, and most of the time I love to share images from the members of the LUMIX Ambassador team, but now and then there's an image of my own that demonstrates the remarkable technology Panasonic's brought to our industry.
That's a magnolia pod above. Every year they bloom in the spring and then a few months later morph into something from a sci-fi movie. I love the color as each seed pops out, but within a couple of days, all the beauty and mystery is gone.
I was on my way to the mailbox a few days ago when I spotted them and grabbed my G9 with the 14-140mm lens. I shot a variety of images, including using the 30mm macro, but this was one of my favorites. The only enhancement was enlarging the pod closer to life-size. I had to give it a slight tweak in clarity in Luminar, but only because the image lost a little color going from the original to a screenshot and then this post.
It's hardly a scientific test, but the sharpness is never a disappointment. If you're not already a member of the LUMIX family, check out the G9 for yourself.
This camera is phenomenal, but I've said that about everything I've used from Panasonic! LOL
