One Month, One Camera – April 2019 (III) – Last Dance Of The Lumix?

This month in my One Month, One Camera (OMOC) project, I chose the Panasonic Lumix GF1, a Micro Four Thirds (M43) body. I had at my disposal one native lens, a Lumix 12-32mm (24-64mm in 35mm terms) and my last four vintage manual focus M42 lenses, using an adapter.

One Month, One Camera – March 2019 (II) – Celebrations And Limitations

So after 21 days of March, I've cut my One Month, One Camera (OMOC) time with the Panasonic Lumix TZ2 short. There's nothing more I can learn about it, and as we talked about recently, I feel I've thoroughly proved to myself that you can enjoy photography for next to nothing. It's time to revisit… Continue reading One Month, One Camera – March 2019 (II) – Celebrations And Limitations
