Recently I’ve shared a few thoughts about my new Panasonic G9 and its subsequent return to Wex Photographic. I’ve now received the replacement camera with lens, and I’m delighted to say I’m extremely please. The combination of the G9 and the Leica 12-60 is excellent, I love the size, weight, ease of use, and I love the detail they can resolve.
Unfortunately, the weather has been so poor that I don’t have anything I can share in the way of pictures. But this did get me thinking about my Olympus EM5, so I decided to process some of the old images. That’s when I came across this shot from Bolivia in 2014.
I can recall this scene vividly. We were driving across a vast salt flat when the sky started to darken, and the most amazing storm developed. It never rained on us but our guide (also amazed by the storm clouds) pulled over so we could photograph it. This is three frames stitched together in Lightroom and the detail and quality from the EM5 captured is quite amazing.
More G9 Landscape Processing
Despite not having any shots to share from the G9, I did capture some on the old G9 camera where the lens problem isn’t quite as noticeable. With the Nik Collection celebrating its 25th birthday I decided to produce a video demonstrating how I edit my landscapes using Nik. You can see the video now on YouTube with this link (https://youtu.be/3NORnydhJss).
Fuji XT3 Image Quality
The other thing that I’ve been talking about is the performance of my Fuji XT3 and trying to extract more from it in Lightroom. Whilst I use Capture One for my Fuji processing and love the results, sometimes I need to use Lightroom and I know others have the same problem. If you want to get the best from your Fuji RAW files in Lightroom my recent experiments might help you.
That’s it for this week.
I hope you like the photo and have a great weekend.
