Sample Shots – Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 w/ 14-42mm Kit Lens

I’ve been playing with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 for the past week thanks to Panasonic which sent me their G3 kit to review. The kit included a 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 G Vario kit lens so that’s what all these shots are taken with. These were all taken without the use of a lens hood as the kit I was sent was missing the hood as someone had previously used it before Panasonic sent it to me. Even without the hood however, the camera did not seem to suffer from any glare from light.

These photos were all taken in aperture priority mode and set wide open. I also took all of them in color and later converted a few to B&W using Lightroom 4. The color shots were also slightly post edited in Lightroom as well and all photos were reduced in size for posting purposes.

Overall, I’m very happy with the results.

Old Chevy parked at someone’s house.

Another angle of it, this time in color.

Pool shot.

I took this shot to test the macro. Very good results and fast focusing.

Same as above but in color.

New beer I tried. Lots of detail the G3 picked up on the label. Again, very happy with the blurring of the background as well.


A shot from the bounce house. Again, really good detail here picking up the weave in the net.
