On the B (and a few thoughts on the GF1)

On the B

I've been spending some more time lately with a Panasonic Lumix GF1 and the 20mm 1.7 pancake lens. It's an amazing combo--and great for street photography. Lightweight, flexible, and great quality photos. It could perform better in low light although still gives usable results till at least 1600 ISO (and then you still have the 1.7 aperture to work with).

The shot above is one of my latest subway shots. For more samples, run this search string on my flickr account.


  1. Great camera the GF1 is indeed! The man in the background seems to be calling your attention. Did you get a shot of him?

  2. I actually didn't notice his gestures until I reviewed the shot later. When I first sat down, he was minding his own business and I'm not sure exactly what caught his attention. I like that it adds another layer to the shot.
