I remember what happened

I bought a GH2 or 3 because of the hype about its video prowess

so on the first outing I wanted to see what the photo quality was like

I took a number of different images using RAW and I downloaded the Panny raw editor - what ever that was at the time

If I recall correctly, was it Silkypix? I personally wasn't impressed with Silkypix.

I then loaded the images and processed them

I remember looking at them and being startled

" these look like crap " .... I thought

I turned up saturation and played with adjustments

now at the time I was using a Sigma SD15 and the difference in quality was dramatic

I panicked

I then got a horrible sick feeling in my stomach

the Panny went right back in the box

the next morning I got right back in the car and drove an hour to return it

there was an unbelievable sense of relief when the return credit card slip came out of the machine

as I left the store in my mind I thought

" I gotta stop screwing up "

( luckily my other photographic purchases have been extremely less dramatic )
