Just another random week with the Panasonic GH3, iphone and Olympus OM-D E-M5

sun or moon

This weeks collection of photos really is just random - really random!  It includes a little astrophotography with the GH3 mounted directly to a telescope to photograph the sun and the moon.  I did also photograph Saturn - but was not at all happy with the resultant photos (mainly due to the tracking not working on the telescope.  I also used the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the iPhone 4s.  I seem to always have some device on me that I can use to take the occassional random photo and if that is an iPhone or something similar, such as the Samsung phone then thats what I will use.  The astrophotography was just a little play with the GH3 - no other real reason.  I have been using the GH3 more and more recently and slowly working my way through the many quirks it presents.  It is definitely a camera with a lot of potential - especially in terms of video.  Sometimes I wish some features of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera were part of the Panasonic GH3 and vice versa.

Those images are anything but random, Shaun !! They were obviously carefully planned, and beautifully executed. I see some really great stuff, some of your best so far !! Especially that lady with that reflection on the window, superb !! Nope, definitely far from random.

Hi Robin

..you are right they are not really random images :-)  I did plan them to some degree in my head.  I saw the reflection of the lady in the window as I was walking down a lane and couln't resist.  Thanx for the comments.
