Because our kids go to a year-round school, they only have a five week summer break. So every year, we pack as much travel and fun as we can into those five weeks.
This summer, we went to the beach, to a huge theme park, to a water park, to visit relatives across the state and spent a lot of time at the playground and pool. We had a great time and I have thousands of pictures to prove it.
In the past, my vacation photos weren’t always that great. They were sometimes blurred because the kids were moving. Or one kid was smiling while the other two were looking away. Or I missed an action shot by just a second and didn’t get the photo I wanted.
That will all be different on family vacations from now on. Because of this.
It’s the Panasonic LUMIX G7.
I’ve only been using it a few weeks and have to say it’s the coolest camera I’ve ever used. It’s exactly what I need as a mom – a lightweight, compact camera that takes better photos than my DSLR and better video than my smart phone.
Actually, it takes such amazing 4K video that I can go through the video frame by frame and select the exact image I want.
That perfect split second when everyone is actually smiling. Or the exact moment when my little boy’s bat hits the ball. Or several images in progression as my daughter does a cartwheel.
Check out this progression of images I got from this weekend. My daughter was kind enough to volunteer to help me show how well the 4K feature works. I can get all of the images I need by using one of the three 4K Ultra HD Video pause and extract 4K Photo Modes – 4K Pre-Burst, 4K Start/Stop, and 4K.
Here’s another succession of frames from a video I took of a bubble popping.
Once I’d taken the 4K video, I was able to choose the moments I wanted out of up to 30 frames-per-second, then extract them as 8-megapixel still images.
I’m going to be sharing more photos I’ve captured with my new LUMIX G7 over the next few months and can’t wait to share all of its cool features! Everything from the touch-enabled screen, the interchangeable lens, built-in Wi-Fi, 4K Ultra HD Video, auto-focusing and more – it’s truly an amazing camera!
With the new LUMIX 4K technology, you’ll never miss the shot!
