Big Red Lighthouse, Holland State Park, Holland, MI.

This image was captured last night July 30, 2017 at 9:45.  Panasonic had sent me the relatively new 12 – 60 mm f/2.8 – F/4 Leica lens to show at SWMCCVC so I decided to take it out for a test.  The lens is absolutely amazing but what is more amazing is the GH5 and it Dual IS II when combined with this lens.  I tried this shot by holding the camera and framing the image using the articulating screen.  I did not get very good results so I brought the camera up to my eye and used the EVF.  The extra anchor of my face worked.  The lens was at 34 mm (68 mm FF equivalent). The exposure triad is f/3.8, 1 sec at ISO 200.  I was not very sure if this was going to work but it sure did.  Post processed to correct the horizon, pull back the highlights and open up the shadows a little.

  1. Hard to believe that this was hand held Shiv.

    1. At the last Hunt’s show I saw a few images that one of the Panasonic Tech Support person had photographed so decided to test it out. I was not happy using the Screen but using the EVF you get more stability and it works.
