G5: Game-Changer for Me
Sep 5, 2012

I've enjoyed using my Lumix G1 for street photography these last 4 years, and now I have a G5. Today, I went out in search of street imagery in the UNM area of Albuquerque, with the Lumix 20 lens. I had the G5 set to ISO 500 and the electronic shutter enabled.

The G5 with electronic shutter is a game-changer for my street photography, not just because of its stealthy operation but because it dramatically speeds up the operation of the camera, eliminating the close-open-close action of the camera's mechanical shutter. The whole operation is now lightning fast.

I also used the Dynamic Monochrome mode, which to my eyes is even better than the G1's Dynamic B/W mode that was already well received.

I'm stoked about the possibilities of this new camera.

I've shared some of my experiences from today, along with a large selection of street images from today's outing, on my blog, here:
