On June 19-21, 2015 I held my semi-annual photography workshop for the Appalachian Mountain Club at their Highland Center lodge in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire entitled "Choosing the Right Camera for the Trail". This slideshow features the work of the students and instructors from the weekend.
We shot over a two day period. The first day was sunny with idea temperatures. The second day it rained heavily, but not on OUR parade.
Panasonic USA supplied cameras for the workshop. During the course of the first evening's instruction, the workshoppers quickly mastered the basics of thIs camera.
Key points for Lumix G shooting are:
- Mirrorless cameras are smaller, lighter, and less expensive than bigger heavier more expensive traditional DSLRs.
- The electronic viewfinder enables 'what you see is what you get' viewing for composing in camera.,
- Video capture allows auto focus while recording.
- Lenses available include professional grade Leica glass, and any lens with Micro Four Thirds mount (including from Olympus) will fit.
The students took some terrific images and learned to "see" better during the weekend course. Check out this slideshow to see their excellent results.
