Panasonic Lumix G5 Preview – Shooting Raw #Lumix

by TerriAnn

During the past few days, I was able to play a little with my new Panasonic Lumix G5. I’m still getting used to the features of this mirrorless camera but am having fun playing with the 14 filters and touch screen. To give you an idea of the camera’s photographic potential, here’s a small collection of totally unedited (except cropping) photos I took this week.

Automatic Mode Using Built-In Filters
My daughter’s friend took this of another friend.
Flowering plant with ‘One Point Color’ filter.
Beautiful background for a photo of Coit Tower.
Coit Tower feels ominous with ‘Impressive Art’.
Lunch tasted as good as it looked.
‘Toy Effect’ helps narrow the viewer’s focus.
Despite the low light after dusk, photo is still clear.
Same path at the same time but using ‘High Key’.

Using the various filters, here are a few more shots from this past weekend. I went through the choices so many times that I forgot which filter was used for one of them. I love that, while scrolling through the 14 creative effects, I could see an immediate preview of how that particular filter would look on that particular scene.

I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour with Burst Media. I received the Panasonic Lumix G5 camera free of charge for my 100% honest review.

I love this camera, I need a ton more practice though since it is my first non-point & shoot! The Retro and Toy Effect filters are quickly turning into favorites!
