Top 3 Reasons Why Professionals Choose LUMIX Mirrorless Cameras

Move Your Images Forward with the LUMIX S5 and G100

These days, shopping for new photography gear can be quite a task. With so many top camera brands designing and manufacturing these compact powerhouses at a faster rate (and at a consumer friendly price point), how does one choose?

One way to narrow the field is to research what the professionals are using on set and on location. Think about it – any variety of gear that can meet the day-to-day physical and performance demands of working creatives is a product worth considering. As it turns out, especially for those interested in content creation and filmmaking, the pros will usually have a LUMIX in hand. 

Here are the top three reasons why professionals are shooting with LUMIX mirrorless cameras. 

High Quality 

To refer to the cameras of today as just hardware would be a gross understatement. A precise combination of plastic, metal, and glass must result in a product that, in the right hands, can produce both creatively and technically stunning images. Did we mention that said product must also be reliable, durable, versatile, and a processing workhorse? 

Since its launch in 2001, LUMIX has aimed to not only meet, but exceed industry expectations with each new camera model. Two decades on and over thirty brand ambassadors later, LUMIX has become a trusted name in the photography and cinematic worlds. But, don’t take our word for it. Watch this video to find our why creative professionals are switching to LUMIX.

High Performance

Picture this: you’re hired to capture the Olympic Games. What camera would you trust to get the job done? Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, Sports Photographer Adam Pretty and Panasonic joined forces on a series of projects leading to the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The series includes one creative project and two editorial projects, all three of which will be captured with a LUMIX mirrorless camera. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Olympic Games have been rescheduled to take place in Summer 2021. 

Innovation That Won’t Break the Bank

To be an in-demand professional is defined by a number of factors. Above all, we believe two are paramount: versatility and mobility. Major camera brands have noticed the increasing demand for a jack-of-all-trades creative; therefore, new models are designed to serve the many needs of today’s photographers and videographers. 

Which features are most important to both pros and aspiring creatives? Three words: Compact. Powerful. Affordable. We have two LUMIX mirrorless cameras in mind that fit this criteria. 

S5

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a  hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera designed especially for content creators. Still photos and video come alive using the latest advances in image resolution, image stabilization, and autofocus, all in the lightweight, compact, durable body that is the signature of Lumix. 

If we could only pick three features to highlight, its 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, 4k capabilities, and high precision autofocus would be at the very top of our list. For a deeper dive into the S5, click the image above to check out the camera’s top ten features. 

Moreover, remember the name Adam Pretty? We mentioned him and his Olympic project collaboration with Panasonic a few sections back? Well, in fall of last year, he was among the chosen few that were able to take the S5 for a spin upon its release. Click the image above to check out Pretty’s experience with the S5. 

G100

The LUMIX G100 packs an assortment of attributes that’s just right for vlogging into a remarkably compact and lightweight body. Combining assured photo quality as a camera and high sound quality, the LUMIX G100 dramatically enhances your video quality and experience with easy operation.

Vlogging is one of today’s most popular video formats. With the G100, content creators have everything they need to tell their stories in stunning 4K. Intuitive and compact, this model is great in the hands of both novice filmmakers or seasoned pros.

Remember This Savings Hack

Do you want to get your hands on camera models that the pros use at a reduced price? If you are considering a purchase during the travel season or around key holidays, one might be in luck. As one is comparing models within a target budget, don’t forget to keep an eye out for instant savings promotions. 

Simply put, rebates are budget lifesavers. They can shave a couple hundred bucks off the hardware, allowing one to use those funds towards accessories or warranty coverage. To be the first to know about these limited time promotions, sign up for retail newsletters, get the inside scoop from your local camera specialist, follow key authorized retailer accounts on social media, or track retailer websites for updates.To get you started, bookmark product pages for the S5 and G100

Final Thoughts

Assuming that you’ve already watched tons of YouTube videos and have browsed multiple “best of” lists, allow us to steer you in the right direction with a bit of advice: Purchasing a new camera is an investment – one that requires research and, often, a second opinion. When in doubt, take a look at what’s in the gear bags of leading photographers and videographers. Your findings are sure to reveal that LUMIX mirrorless cameras, including the S5 and G100, are among the top models in use today.
