Pausing Life for Just a Moment with the Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Panasonic. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Documenting life through pictures has always been a part of my journey.

While I’ve seen lots of people talk of about putting down their phone to really live life in the moment, I only half agree with this. Phones are a distraction, I agree. One quick check of email can turn into an hour long ordeal, flipping through email, Facebook, pinning future ideas on Pinterest, while ignoring the life around you.

But there is something precious about flipping through old pictures and reliving memories from the past with loved ones. Especially those loved ones who are no longer with us.

I am not a staged photo kind of gal. I prefer candid, real life moments.

In college, I always had my camera. Snapping pictures of every day events, creative ministry weekends, and crazy adventures with friends. Since digital cameras weren’t available to the average photographer then, we paid lots of money for rolls of film and were not guaranteed any would turn out.

Even at our wedding {in 2001} we added on a “editorial” package, which included candid moments captured by a second photographer. They are my favorites. This was before lifestyle photography was popular. I was ahead of my time. Always. Ha!

Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera

The Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera is changing photography as we know it, with a state of the art touchscreen monitor. It is amazing.

Although there is definitely a learning curve.

I’ll admit when I first saw the Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera, I was intimidated. I am comfortable with my DSLR, but it’s so heavy and inconvenient to carry around every day. I have my phone, but I was continually missing great photos of my children because they are constantly in motion. It didn’t take long though before I was comfortable with taking pictures and trying out the different features. The Panasonic LUMIX G7 gives you great DSLM (M= Mirrorless) image quality without the bulk and weight of traditional DSLRs. Because really, those are crazy heavy and bulky for everyday use.

My favorite feature is being able to capture the perfect moment even though my children are in constant motion. Especially at swim lessons. {just a note: I did blur the teacher in editing to protect her identity. The actual picture is crystal clear.}

How awesome are those shots?!

The Panasonic LUMIX G7 allows me to capture just the right moment with the 4K feature. Don’t know what that is? It’s awesome! The camera basically takes a video, and allows you to choose which 8-mexapixel still image from the 4K Ultra HD video you want to save {up to 30 frames-per-second). You save it right on the camera with the touchscreen. It’s unlike anything I have ever seen before! You can then send the pictures to your phone via wi-fi and an app from Panasonic. From there you can upload them to your phone and share across social media. As a mom, it’s great. As a blogger, it’s essential. I LOVE this camera!

You never have to miss a photo again!

With the Panasonic LUMIX G7 camera you get three exclusive 4K Ultra HD Video Photo Modes: 4K Pre-Burst, 4K Start/Stop, and 4K. I know it sounds confusing. They are really awesome features that allow you to capture those amazing moments. You also get exclusive DFD Focusing for fast and precise auto focusing that tracks the subject. Especially important for those children who can’t stop moving. It even has ultra-compact, interchangeable lens and accessory options!!

  1. Well, that sounds amazing! Was it hard to learn al the fancy-shmancy features? I have a DSLR but I pretty much just point and shoot b/c I’ve never taken the time to learn all the bells and whistles.

    1. It is amazing, Stephanie! I thought it would be neat, but couldn’t see myself using anything but my DSLR for most things. I was SO wrong! I love this camera more and more. With the touchscreen, even fancy settings aren’t hard. I know I’m not using every single feature, but the ones I’ve found are my favorite. Plus, I can upload the pictures to my phone, which makes it SO easy to share on FB and Instagram. I LOVE it!
