Blog and general ramblings from a travel and landscape photographer

Why I’m switching from Full Frame to MICRO FOUR THIRDS | Canon EOS 5Diii to PANASONIC G9

I have finally bitten the bullet and downsized from Canon Eos 5D III full-frame to Panasonic G9 micro four thirds. I love Canon and have been using their cameras for over 10 years.

I loved working with Canon Eos. I started with the 550D kit that made me want to practice photography. Over time, I’ve evolved from APS-C like my 650D and my 7D to 5DIII. Today, I prefer to travel lighter and the new mirrorless technology gives so much quality. In addition, I also like to make projects with old lenses and even if the adapter rings were going on my Canon, I must admit that on my Panasonic Lumix the use is made even easier thanks to the technology of the setting in point by contrast.

Through my blog I will show you my evolution, my experiences, my projects and tests.

Abstract Paintings

Some of my photos give me inspiration for the realization of abstract paintings.

Discover my works over time. They will be sales.

Regularly I will make you discover the history of certain brands of cameras and this via my collection of old devices.

OLD LENSES

YASHICA -YASHINON-DX 1: 1.7 F50MM

OLD LENSES

Mirrorless cameras make it easy to use old lenses with an adapter. Some of these old lenses give a vintage touch to the photos and it is also a more artistic approach in my opinion since these lenses do not have auto-focus and require to work in manual mode. I find the charm of yesteryear.

Old Lens Helios 44M

This lens gives a good oldtimer result. If the colors are very pale, the use of Luminar 4 allowed me to strengthen the colors.
