hiking with lumix

I took my Lumix GH4 out for a hike yesterday. I was accompanied by it’s friends the 7-14mm f4, it’s cousin 12-35 f2.8 and it’s big brother the 35-100mm f2.8. This combination of camera and lenses gives me the 35mm equivalent focal range of 14-to 200mm with fast glass. Add a spare battery, a five in one 20 inch Westcott reflector, some extension tubes and put it all in a small Tenba ‘Switch 10’ bag and I’m ready for almost anything I might come across photographically.

Oh, did I mention all of that gear weighs just a bit over six pounds? Throw in a MeFoto backpacker tripod and water for the hike and it’s still under ten pounds. TOTAL.

The Lumix Micro 4/3rds Mirrorless system rocks!

Happened upon this stand of delicate little lavender flowers.

Mounted the GH4 with 35-100mm on the tripod. Added a 10mm Vello extension tube and it looks like this in full sun.

Open the 5 in 1 Westcott reflector, take off the cover and use the scrim between the sun and the flower and look at the change.

I think I’ll take the kit out for a hike again tomorrow.

    I been waiting to possibly obtain that bag, since Suzette told me she was working with Tenba on a design! I been using Tenba for years, including one with Hasselblad designs on outside!

    George it has a good build and you can order it with a separate cover to change the look…
