Thanks, Sarah. The G1 is indeed a very fun camera but what makes it even more fun is its ability to perform very well with all sorts of MF lenses (with the appropriate adapters, of course). Panasonic has the red model on sale in its website for $599 with the two lenses, which is an absolute bargain.

Default G1 pictures.

Some test-shots with my Panasonic Lumix G1 - what a lovely camera!!



All shots with the G Vario 14-45mm kitlens.


The first one was of course after unboxing in the evening. I had to do a test-shot right away. No motive really but nice test of the White-balance. HDR


Next day saw me poking around in the woods to find a motive - This is what I came up with. Single shot with Orthon-treatment.



On day 3 - I had to take a trip to my dentist in town. Needless to say, I brought my G1 with me and did some test shot. Handheld HDR

I am sorry that some of the shots are in fact HDR's but thats what I intend to use this camera for. I will post some untouched-ones later, as well.

This camera will carry your photography to quite another level. Outstanding picks and detail.

Walter-

Congratulations on your new Panasonic G-1. As usual you have put the G-1 to very good use with some of your very excellent photos. It looks like this is the real creative tool you have been looking for.

Enjoy your new camera and we look forward to more of your wonderfully detailed photos. Have a great day. My G-1 is scheduled to arrive on Friday, 04 December. It will be an early Christmas present.

Sarah Joyce

Well, I will have to work harder now, nobody will forgive a dSLR-shooter the way they forgave me when shooting with a P&S...

Thank you, Sarah Joyce - you have something to look forward to. It's such a nice camera. I felt instantly "at home" with it and it feels great in my hands too, so compact and sturdy. That fold-out TFT-screen is something! So easy to compose your picture with it when on the tripod!! You can turn it any way you want to avoid glare. Its great! And I love it!

So much to learn and to try out, but that's always fun on a new camera.

I'm not sure though that it will be my "one and only" - the low-light capabilities are not so great - I think. I used to do a lot of night-shooting with my FZ-28 and I liked it.

With the G1 it's mostly the issue with the EVF and LiveFiew on the TFT when shooting in near dark conditions. I have only had the chance one evening (when it did not rain) to set up my tripod and do some night-shots. What I have seen that night, it's not the best solution - unless I have done something wrong in my set-up...

It's early days yet. I leave you to find out a few things for meg, Sarah Joyce !

Have a nice week!

Default I just realized - I'm in the wrong thread! This is the GH1-thread....

...and I am going on and on about my new G1 - But, what the heck. It's almost the same camera (different kit-lens) so I go on like before. If anybody objects, pleas say so. I hope the owner of this thread - DonalDuc - will forgive me:

Anyway, I just want to post one more post, this time with pictures taken with the Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 17mm 1:2,8 also called the "Pancake".

This lens came with the camera and I had to try it out. AF works very fine and fast, all auto-functions as well.



That day it alternately rained and the the sun shone...



The heavy clouds raced across the sky, giving overcast one minute and sunshine the oyher - Constantly changing light!




The rocks looked great after the rain!




But it was a challenge to expose to this ever-changing light, specially with a new camera.




I had a good feeling though, about the camera, the lens and everything - I liked it!!



And then some middle-exposures:

Now, don't be too harsh on me - not yet, anyway. These are just test-shots to try out this new camera and the "Pancake"...
