Gallery of random images from first trips out with GX-1
I have been in the market for a a small compact 4/3rds camera for a while now. I was fortunate enough to be sent on loan a Fuji X10, which was a good camera but wasn’t what I hoped for from it, considering how good a review the x-100 had received. I was offered a second hand x-100 at a good price but the sale fell through and to be honest I am little glad about it as the opportunity to have the Panasonic Lumix GX-1 would have slipped by me.
I am slowly working on a better more detailed review of the Lumix but for now here’s a few initial images from a few trips out around the village in Braunton, a couple of candid snaps from a wedding I recently shoot and the obligatory family shots.
The GX-1 is such an amazing little camera, combined with the 20mm pancake lens it has put the fun back into shooting images for myself again. Don’t get me wrong, I love my DSLR kit but I always feel like I need to take care with it as it’s my work tools. Hence my reason for a decent family camera.
The camera is feature rich, packing a mighty 16mp on it’s mirrorless shutter, high iso noise is impressively low and with the 20mm f/1.7 lens it is a joy to use in low light. The system focuses fast and accurately via a multitude of options, multipoint, single point or touch screen. If I had to grumble about the camera it would be that the iso doesn’t go below 160 and when shooting in a different aspect ratio from 4:3, say 1:1 or 16:9 the camera crops the RAW file as well as the jpg.. Only minor niggles really for such an amazing camera.
So for now enjoy these first sets of images. Taken at Broomhill Arts Hotel, nr Barnstaple.
All images processed either in camera as jpg’s or though Lightroom with custom presets applied.
