silence of the lamp

silence of the lamp

shot while visiting family last week. i think i will include it in the lamp post series anyway :)

for the technically inclined: this is the first post here with the panasonic gm-1. a camera that would be a very big camera if smallness was bigness. i haven’t had many shooting opportunities yet, but the size and the irresistible silence of the camera (the camera would be very loud if … you get it) were really appealing to me. i’m curious as to how much the missing image stabilization will affect my shooting. i’m guessing it might probably not be worse than the shutter shock issue the e-p5 exhibits at unappropriate moments and surely more predictive. regarding ergonomics the e-p5 of course blows the little marble marvel out of the water but coming from a point and shoot (lx-3) and considering my typical shooting style this won’t get in the way too much.


    1. hi, yes it is a very new addition my gear and it does not signal a shift away from olympus. i like the e-p5 a lot and i somehow prefer olympus’ menu system over the panasonic’s but the size factor is what brought me to m43 in the first place and i’m really fascinated by the smallness of the gm-1. at the moment i’m using the kit lens which seems to be a great performer (also on the e-p5) but i have tried the 20mm, 14mm and 45mm on the gm-1 and they all seem to work great. i’m looking forward to posting some more from it, too ;)
