Camera Store TV Features Joe Desjardins Shooting Lumix G9
Chris Nichols from The Camera Store TV Features Joe Desjardins Shooting Lumix G9. It seems the tide is in full motion, even in the Canadian North! Chris, one of my favorite young people in the photo trade, talks with Joe in the Canadian wilds about how he is using the new Lumix gear—particularly the G9—as his main equipment for shooting wildlife and nature.
As those of you know who read my Blog, I’ve been using the Lumix gear now since 2010, full time since the Olympus 40-150mm was released. I’ve now replaced the Olympus with the Leica 100-400mm and just recently added the Leica 200mm F/2.8 to the mix.
Like me, Joe shot all the really big traditional DSLR’s. His choice was the Canon EOS 1DX and the EOS 7D. Like I did with my Nikons, he’s traded all his big Canon gear in for the much lighter Lumix G9 and several lenses. In short, Joe has now joined the Ninja shooters, photographers who are now Fast, Light, and Mobile. Welcome to the cutting edge Joe. Glad to have others finally seeing the Lumix light. And thanks to Chris for bringing this to our attention with his great down-home, personable style. Canadians are great people; I love them so much I married one.
