My New Camera


posted on 16th of may, 2013



Ok after squeezing over 1,500 stock images out of my micro four thirds camera over the past two years, it was time to cash in some earnings and go pro.

I started out this journey a few years ago after jumping into DLSRs in order to photograph the model railroad layout I was building. Rather quickly photography took over as my passion and the model railroad still is up in the attic unfinished.

Discovering microstock as an outlet for the photographs that were quickly filling up my hard drives, I've never looked back. My micro four thirds Panasonic G camera allowed me to take my camera every where and capture clean shots with deep depth of field. Soon I learned to start making images in the studio instead of driving around the country side trying to find images.

I've heard great things about the Sony A7, but in the end its the photographer not the camera that makes the shot.

I recently added the Panasonic G6 to my gear and gotta say, i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE changing the focus point with my thumb on the lcd while looking through the viewfinder...as well as some other very cool features the G6 has.
No AF/MF on the camera, just the lenses...but I don't use that all that much anyway.

Although I often have night time fantasy dreams about owning a 36x24 full frame, I'm not sure (unless make a crap-load of money) that I'll get to one of those.
It would cost me more than a fortune to match the range of lenses I have now on m4/3.
but....
Have been drooling over the Sony A7 but omg, $$$$$$$.....dribble, dribble, dribble.......Just have to keep drooling for now.
Have a great Christmas!

I do miss being able to focus any where I touched on the LCD screen on the Pany. Limited focus points on the 6D.

My favorite lens these days is the 35mm F2 with IS. Great for video.

I was rather disappointed with the 24-105mm L kit lens at the far end. Mushy focus even on a tripod.
