    Thanks Daniel. Would the FZ1000 do a better job in that situation? I think it has a bigger sensor? Thanks again.

    Hi Daniel, I've recently tried my hand at BIF'S using my GH5 and Panasonic 14-140mm lens, and I'm beginning to understand that this requires a lot of practice. I've been thinking about purchasing the 100-400mm Panasonic for surfing and would like to know from you whether the AF on the…

    Hi Daniel, Would this camera be good for indoor sporting events? My kids do karate tournaments and it is hard to capture a good action shot. Most of these venues have okay to dimly lit lighting. What setting would be best? Your pic are fantastic. It has been a while…

    Hi Daniel I just bought a GX80 with the 12-60 kit lens and although in all respects I love it there's one thing causing me a little concern and that's battery life. The standard Panasonic battery is down to one bar after about 150 shots, far less than the 300…

    1 day ago on Panasonic LUMIX G85 Shooting Experience Huge Bang For The Buck (66 comments)
  • Dean says:

    The "concept" is disastrous for working photographers and serious hobbyists. Fortunately, from what I saw of the critter shots (polar bears, grizzlies, lions, wolves), so is the quality of images on the site. You and I would have hit the "delete" button long before the "send" button if we even…

  • Photo Hero or Photo Zero: Two Points of View

    A new company recently came to my attention and they’re making a lot of professional photographers unhappy these days. It’s called Unsplash and it’s nothing more than a very well done website that specializes in giving away FREE photography. Their tag line is, “Beautiful, free photos. Gifted by the world’s…

  • Copyright Your Pictures Now It’s Super Easy

    I’ve been telling our NE Explorers since I began teaching, “You should copyright your pictures.” And now it’s so easy, a photographer would be crazy not to do it. All due to the new service called Binded. Even more unbelievable is the fact Binded’s service is free. Not the registration…

  • Steve Curran Wonders About UV for Leica 100-400mm lens

    Steve, not sure what you are referring to as far as me stating I might decide not to use a UV protector for the 100-400mm. If I wrote that, I must have been thinking I didn’t want any additional glass and that comment most likely was referring to the prototype…
