Testing the limits of the Panasonic LUMIX G9

I like to push all my gear to the limits if possible: weather, different shutter speeds, different lenses and different styles of photography. I want to start off by first stating that this camera fit in my hand like every other Lumix micro 4/3 camera I have shot with. The dials were all in familiar locations and the menus, well they were the same as my other Lumix models, except for some new upgrades.

The G9 did not disappoint on this trip. It actually out performed any Lumix camera I have used in the past. It performed well in low light situations where subjects blended into the environment and created some of the best dynamic range I have experienced in the Lumix line up to date.

Chasing the Aurora — Lofoten Islands

Chasing the Aurora — Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten archipelago is a photographer’s dream. Sharp, pointy mountains tower over fjords; cracked, frozen lakes, legendary beaches, traditional red cabins and magical light – this pearl of the arctic has it all.

Stunning Arctic landscape, amazing locations such as Reine, Olstind mountain, Haukland, Skagsanden and Utakleiv beaches, and many more

High probability of shooting the Aurora Borealis above immense mountains and wonderful beaches

Magical low light throughout the day, enabling us to shoot for over 6 hours (weather permitting), in addition to night photography
