The Lumix GH5S in Arches NP, Utah

I took the GH5S with the Leica 8-18mm lens to the PSA Conference in the hope I would get to use it and capture some night skies.  It was mainly a bust most evenings except last night when the skies were clear.  The park is crowded with tourists even at night – and of course 30 – 40 at a time they climb out of busses and vans with bright flashlights – not a care that someone is trying to photograph the stars.

I was so happy to get a few shots that I really like.  The milky way is not ideal for this time of year but good enough to test the performance of the GH5S.  In my opinion, it gets 5 Stars.

Streets of Old Montreal

St. Sulpice Street after a downpour – Old Montreal. Panasonic Lumix GH5s combined with the Leica 8-18mm lens. Exposure triad f/8, 1.6 sec at ISO 160.

Not only is the Lumix GH5s a great low light camera, it has excellent dynamic range.  I should have used its native ISO of 400 instead of 160 to get an even better range.
