“Do professional photographers really use point-and-shoot cameras? Surprisingly, I do yes”
Even though I’m a professional photographer I do carry with me a compact camera. I can’t carry my Nikon D700 everywhere as its just way too heavy and I like to capture shots of anything that interests me. Just recently I purchased a Panasonic Lumix GF3 compact SLR camera with all the features of a pro camera that fits easily into my pocket.
Most of my friends are surprised when I whip out my GF3 for a shot but it is incredibly good quality. At the moment I am shooting a great deal in Leeds and last week I spent the day at the Royal Armories Leeds as you can see from the lighting and detail of the images below; GF3 has some great features.
The Lumix GF3 is good value for money; I purchased it for £300 with twin lenses the 14mm Pancake & 14-42mm Zoom lens. The camera features full manual controls, and the small size makes it easy to take on a casual day out, when you normally wouldn’t want to carry a large camera with you.
The GF3 records full HD video with mono sound, and has a number of useful options such as continuous or manual focus, digital telephoto converter, wind reduction, microphone level display, and flicker reduction for TVs. Its great to have in your pocket!
I love going to the royal armouries, I’ve been several times, and it’s my first choice of entertainment every time somebody comes to visit. Even if it’s a display of weapons and related things it’s done so brilliantly and in a really catchy way that anybody would enjoy it!
There are also demonstrations, shows and games throughout the place, so it keeps young and adults entertained over the five floors and outside too, with jousting, history monologues, martial arts etc. So do take your time to visit it, as it is an attraction to not miss!
