I’m a massive fan of the G10, especially for street photography. One of the coolest features for me are the two custom settings on the dial, this has made it so incredibly easy for me to get shooting in the streets at a moments notice, knowing that all my settings are exactly as I need them.
Here is a great article from another G10 street shooter with his views and setup for shooting street with the Canon G10.

Review – Lumix GF1 Camera

October 17, 2009 Leave a comment

Dpreview have an in depth review with sample images of the new Panasonic Lumix GF1 digital camera. I’ve been interested in seeing this camera in action for a while, the adaptable lenses make it a very versatile piece of gear to have in any photographers bag. The directions Panasonic have taken with their range of cameras in recent times is quite impressive, I very nearly purchased the LX3 for my street work but instead opted for the G10. The GF1 is a very tempting purchase for me, but I’ll probably be sticking with the G10 for a while longer yet.
The GF1 looks like a great street camera to own if you’re looking for one.
