Panesonic Lumix G-5 Review (and a Giveaway!)


A Satur-Day in my life // shot with the Panasonic Lumix G-5.
(no adjustments made to the photos, all filters/effects were chosen on the camera)






















I have really enjoyed getting to explore the Panasonic Lumix G-5. I would never call myself a photographer, but I happen to take thousands of photos for the blog--and I enjoy it. There is so much I could learn to manually adjust things based on certain lighting or situations, but it's nice when the camera does a lot of that for you.

I love the size of the Lumix G-5. It's light enough to carry around all day and small enough to be wrapped in a scarf and placed gently in my purse. It's comfortable to hold, which I was skeptical about due to its size. You can feel that it's a quality camera, without the weight of a bulky larger camera.

I was surprised to discover how much I noticed the "automatic transition to viewfinder from screen" feature. If you are using the screen to either look at photos that you've already taken, or to set up your shot for another photo, you can switch from screen to viewfinder by simply lifting the camera to your eye. I never would have thought that feature would be a selling point for me, but it's nice to not have to click through a few buttons to switch back to the viewfinder. With all my cat photography, I've learned that you have to be quick and take about 1,000 photos to get at least one good one!

The filters that you can select on the camera are fun to play around with. They take photography from simply "taking a photo" to "creating an artistic shot". Each filter you select will show you a version of how your photo will look when you are preparing to shoot. It's intuitive to find the filters, and takes a bit of editing work off your plate!

Aside from being a blogger and taking photos for the blog, I love having a great camera to document our lives. I'm glad that I have so many images from various parts of our lives throughout the year. I look forward to taking photos of my kids, when we have them, and continuing to document family vacations.

If you are considering investing in a high quality camera, I'd suggest checking out the Panasonic Lumix G-5. You get all the wonderful features wrapped up in a lightweight and simple to use camera. You can get free shipping at Panasonic.com until December, 31 2012!

  57. I love that you have the option to "edit" the photo via camera instead of taking the time to do it on the computer! I had several pics from my chicago trip a few weeks ago. Took over an hour editing the photos (which don't look near as good as the ones above!) :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sounds like I would love everything about this camara. But the fact that I wouldn't have to feel like a goof everytime I tried to switch from the screen to the viewfinder would be awesome. I'm always that person that tries to look through the viewfinder when it's not switched to that setting!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like the size of it. I'm not a fan of large cameras, so the Lumix G-5 looks perfect. Thanks for the review.

  90. Honestly, I would love the automatic switch from viewfinder to screen. I am currently using an old Sony Cybershot, and it has a button you have to push to switch from viewfinder to screen, and I always forget to push it! That simple convenience of the automatic switch would make a huge difference to me, as I like to switch back and forth quite a bit. Also, the 14 creative filters sounds like they would be fun to play with!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I've just spent the last 20 minutes looking at this camera online! I love it. I've been wanting a new camera and doing my research for the past six months, and I hadn't come across the Panasonic Lumix G-5! I love that it is beginner-friendly (I am not a photog either, but I want the best pictures possible), and that it has HD video. Thanks for hosting the giveaway, Kate!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Love how the quality of the picture in a very small light weight and I love the size, not too intrusive when taking picture. Hope I win this one,camera as I'm looking to get a new camera, never own one. I'm always borrowing my sister's or sharing with my husbands Canon SLR (which is big)

    ReplyDelete
  97. The size and the filters are wonderful!

  100. I love the idea of the filters, I use camera plus on my phone all the time but hate that the pixels are so low. I would love to have a nice camera that doesn't require editing on the computer, I can share faster with friends and family!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Like that it has filters that creates an artistic shot!

    ReplyDelete
  102. While the concept of having small, compact, lenses has been quite appealing to me (who doesn't want a 400mm equivalent lens smaller than a coffee mug!)This would be wonderful to have, esp. with our new addition making his arrival in March. :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I like that it's a DSLM so that it has the great features of a DSLR, but much lighter. The filters are great too!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Great quality photos! Great giveaway item!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm really digging the size in relation to all the cool features that you normally find on a bigger camera : )

  106. The filters for artistic shots are my favorite! I also like that it is professional yet compact!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love the filters. I spend so much time editing pictures that I'd love to be able to select the filter on the camera and skip the whole editing process!

  116. I love its compact size and the filters!!!

  120. I love being able to take artistic shots with a camera that fits inside my purse!
    This one is being added to my Christmas list for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  121. The quality of the pictures is awesome. The thing I find the most intriguing is the shot of you holding it with one hand taking a picture. It looks like it is a heavy, top of the line camera, but you're just holding it with one hand which is interesting.

  124. I love that it sounds like anyone can use it! I recently bought a Canon DSLR camera and spent A LOT of money on it. I tried it out at my friends wedding recently and the pictures were just OK. I played with numerous settings and only got decent pictures in B&W mode. It made me very sad because they weren't happy with the professional photog they hired which means they were really looking forward to using some of their guests pictures. Sounds like I bought the wrong camera! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  125. I love the advantage of contrast auto focusing, because I have 2 young boys at home. It is REALLY hard to get them to sit still to take their picture, so I take many of them on the move:) Thanks for the chance to win this camera.

  126. I love that it has 14 filters and effects!!

  152. Holy mess! I can not believe you are giving away a camera! I seriously need a new one, my current camera does not meet the quality standards that are anywhere close to this camera! I have spent the past few months researching the best camera for my small upcoming buisness & this seems to be a perfect fit! I need a camera that can efficently document my life as well as my business! I am co-partners in a upcoming decorating business, and a camera of this level is something that is not on my "can-afford at the moment" list. I need a new one that can take clear and precise pictures of products and events! Thanks for this giveaway, I am an avid follower of you blog! I check it religiously, Happy Thanksgiving!

  155. I love all the things it can do automatically! Perfect for someone, like me, wanting to transition from very very amateur point and shoot to more skilled photography!

  156. I love that is can switch from screen to view finder just by moving it up to your eye. That is so nice.

  157. I would love a lightweight high quality camera!

  158. I love the fact that it is compact and takes amazing photos. A few years ago I dove in and purchased a Nikon D3000 with a few lenses and thought I would take these amazing photographs. They aren't bad but I really love the ease in which you can switch things up and the compact size of the Panasonic. I do love my big camera but sometimes you just need/want to take a smaller one that can take really nice pictures.

  172. I really like the size of the camera! I have never been a big fan of toting cameras around, but the iPhone 5 camera isn't as great as I would like but I'm not willing to tote around the BIG canon rebels, etc.

  173. I love how there are ways to adjust the photograph's settings before you take the picture -- that definitely would take time away from having to edit...LOVE that! :-) Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!

  175. I love the quick focus... then I won't miss the special moments of my girls

  176. My favorite feature is that it is capable of catching memories. Which I realize is true of all camera, but the crispness of the photos posted using this camera are incredible- no guessing what's going on in the picture. My husband recently lost ours on a hike and I am dying for a new one to capture more memories of our 2 year old and 9 month old.

  177. I have to say that the view finder with eye sensor is pretty cool. I also like that it has about 75 minutes of recordable time

  178. The filters will be fun to play with!

  181. I Absolutely love the filters on the camera, I don't like spending a ton of time in post production on my photos

  182. My camera was stolen when our home was broken into, so I'd love a new camera!! I love the size and the filter options. Love to learn about it.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Since I am a photography novice, I like that there is a minimal amount of manual adjustment needed but the photos still come out looking great!

  184. I love the small yet powerful size, and the filter option for less editing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  185. I love the filters! Such a neat idea! Your pictures turned out beautiful!

  186. Love this camera b/c of the filter feature that gives you a preview of how your photo will look in the selected filter.

    ReplyDelete
  187. It's awesome that you can make the pic black and white on the camera!

  188. I am a fan of Panesinic lumix for a very long time. Currently I own a Panesonic Lumix GF series camera, my favorite features of lumix camera including the pin point feature, the sleek of the camera design, smooth operation and mostly the selection of different mode.

  189. My daughter is asking Santa for a "good camera" this year. This one, I think we could share! I would love a smaller, more easily portable camera.

  190. My favorite feature is the size. I have a bigger DSL camera but I am always reluctant to take it hiking or on other outdoor trips. This would be perfect!

  191. Love the simple filter option. I can actually look like i know what I am doing!

  192. Having an interchangable lenge option is huge. My Canon doesn't have that and it bums me out. Also, the option to add a professional flash on the shoe is a big plus.
