More photos at Tokyo DisneySea with Panasonic Lumix G1
I’ve had a Panasonic Lumix G1 since January and I’ve discovered that its a very handy piece of gear that easy to carry, especially when traveling. On a recent trip I relied on my Leica M8 for the majority of my photos but the longest lens in my traveling M8 kit is the Summilux 75mm f/1.4 lens which with the M8’s crop factor of 1.3 is equivalent to 100mm in 35mm format.
On this particular day I also carried the G1 with its optional image stabilized 45-200mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens which has an effective range of 90-400mm. Not only is the G1 a tiny DSLR, this lens is very compact, so much so that I was able to carry both the M8 with a Carl Zeiss Biogon 21mm f/2.8 lens and the G1 and lens in the same bag, the small Billingham Hadley.
The G1 saved the day as there was no way I could get close to the show to take closeups of the action. The show photos ranged from 107 -334mm effective range. Although the lens isn’t that fast the image stabilization managed even to steady the lens extended to 334mm. (And as I noted in other recent postings, some photos to 422mm.)
The show photos in this posting were all shot in jpeg. Handheld. No tripod.
