A bit of everything…


Sh*t Mirrorless Fanboys Say

LX100 review by Luminous Landscape.

Paul: “Taylor Swift uses an OM-D. See pix here: Dailymail.co.uk

Nate:Just wanted to share the short film we shot on the GH4 using the Pany 12-35 f2.8. Its the story of a race between a running man and a car on the streets of Bangkok during rush hour! https://vimeo.com/117649269

Daniel:I just posted the latest installment of The Lumix Diaries where I’ve highlighted a recent cheetah chase. It was shot with the Lumix GH4 and the new Olympus 40-150mm F/2.8 lens. For me this series of images has ended my concerns about AF speed issues with my Lumix GH4 cameras. This is proof positive that the GH4 can compete with ANY camera out there, at least in the world I shoot in. Hope you enjoy seeing how quick the GH4 really is.”

Hiko:Someone might be interested in my YouTube video (http://youtu.be/REnlXYn23fE) from the trip to Venice. This was shot on Panasonic LUMIX LX100 in 4K mounted on iFootage WildCat 2.
