So much fun with one little camera. I’m telling you, once you truly sit down and think about your workflow and your needs, then you will find the proper fitting camera for you. Don’t fall prey to the latest pixel count or sensor size. And interchangeable lens are really just another way to get more money out of you. Find a solid body, some really good glass, features that you would play with and controls that fit your hands and work style. I found that in the Panasonic Lumix LX100. The controls remind me of old film SLR cameras. And the size can’t be beat. Perfect for travel, family gatherings and daytrips. And then get a good tripod and work some manual shots in to the mix.
This camera is just way too much fun. And I’m really falling in love with Macro photography. It’s been so long since I’ve had a decent camera that could handle such small subject matter and close-up work. Also, this 1.7 lens really helps. So, today, I was playing around with using some printed backdrops; and also playing around with some manual focus and depth fun. All of these shots were just using natural daylight coming in my morning windows. I had the camera on tripod so I could use some long exposures if needed. I don’t think I ever got longer than 1/15 of a second.
So, first Dr Doom shows up to stir up some trouble. But Hulk is having none of that…am I right? Hulk smash puny Doom…
Oh…and them the Army. I mean, come on boys…how many times have you tried this one? And these guys are only 15mm tall. Really…Flames of War minis up against a Hulk Heroclix (yeah, that was game-talk for you non-nerdlings)
Yeah, this is a seriously shallow depth of field. Just playing around with my new Lumix LX100. Completely rocks for such a small camera. 4K video, amazing photo features, old school ergonomics, tiny size, large chip, good price…can’t say enough good about this one. Don’t be fooled by the DSLR world…just get what you need and you’ll be amazed and what you can create.
