My New Camera : GF2

Assalamualaikum wbt,

I used to bring my Nikon D700 around when I want to do candid or street shooting. But somehow I think that it's kinda heavy and it's easily to be noticed by people around that might make em feel uneasy. Plus I need to capture videos too sometimes.

So I had come into two solutions :

- Buy a compact camera.

- Buy a smartphone.

Initially I'm more to the 2nd solution but somehow, I think I will not going to use it often (plus from the experience of my members here, smart phones eat lotsa money through data usage etc). I'm kind of person that using phone for receiving text and calls + texting and calling only. So I dropped the 2nd choice.

So the compact cameras that I looked upon for survey were mostly micro four third format, like Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. Initially I had consider Canon S95 but since I want a compact camera that has interchangeable lens system (I can use my Nikon lenses with this camera) so I dropped it down.

Finally, I had come across Panasonic Lumix GF2 which is the cheapest among these cameras. Bought it last two weeks, and so far I satisfied with it. Below are some pictures that I captured with this camera.



Studying in Library.

Main Street Terminal.

Hopkirk Research Institute.

The Centennial, Hokowhitu.

So, for the serious things like shooting events, sports, portraiture, landscapes, macro etc I will use Nikon D700. While for shooting some casual stuff like street, travel, urbanscape, abstract and videos I'll use this Panasonic Lumix GF2. And I recommend those who are looking for camera that match the image quality of DSLR but smaller in size, you can have a look on this one.
