"The Soul of New Orleans, the Soul of a LUMIX"

By Joseph Linaschke



"New Orleans is without a doubt one of the best cities in the world for street photography. An abundance of colour, history, and amazing, welcoming people make for incredible photographic opportunities. The LUMIX GX85 is the ultimate travel and street photographer's camera, providing professional-level power in a lightweight, compact, and non-intimidating form, and New Orleans was the ultimate city to explore with this new camera."



Comfort Without Compromise

"In my experience, bigger, bulkier cameras are hard to maneuver on the go and
tend to scare people away. Having a compact camera made it easier for me to
get up close and personal with the street musicians and artists that make New
Orleans so unique.

Even with multiple lenses, the GX85's compact size also made it easy to carry all
day, and it wasn't intrusive when shooting street portraits."

Focus on Sharper Shots

"Unsurprisingly, the camera performed beautifully.

One of my favourite features from the GX85 – or lack thereof – was the absence
of an anti-aliasing filter. This made for some of the sharpest photos I’ve ever
seen, and the in-camera JPEGs were universally gorgeous.

Typically, when I’m shooting travel and street photography, I don’t want to think
about post-processing later, so getting a perfect JPEG out of the camera is my
goal. I had no problem doing that with the GX85."

My Final Thoughts

"In my honest opinion, the Panasonic LUMIX GX85 is the ultimate travel and
street photographer’s camera, providing professional-level power in a
lightweight, compact, and non-intimidating form.

Likewise, New Orleans was the ultimate city to explore with this new camera.
