The Colours of Oz

The Ctreatures that make up the Character of our Nature

First G1 shots

The best of the bunch.

Maybe the best too, sleeping together – no kidding. ((:

I like a lot about this camera and lens. It’s light, has a large articulating hi res LCD for MF – was a breeze – but in the wrong place, full time liveview, better IQ – less noise than FZ, but there’s too much to do to make it work as I am used to with the FZ50 + Raynox Achromats.

The G1 + 35mm is 1: 1 on an 18mm wide sensor. The FZ + R250+150 is 1.2 : 1 on a 7mm wide sensor. To get equivalent magnification on the G1, which I want, I’d need more than 2.5 : 1. Can’t see it happening and staying small and light for one handed work.

I am open to suggestions though, if anyone has any for higher mags that keeps me light and small with a working distance of about 2 inches.
