Just back from a fab month-long trip to Botswana staying at Limpopo-Lipadi Game and Wilderness Reserve. I took along my GH2 (as well as my 40D, a compact and a video camera) and thought I'd post a few shots that I got. I was really pleased with the portability and speed with which I could adapt to changing situations - quick lens changes even in moving vehicles, light gear bag to carry up koppies and on walks, easy to hand-hold and so on. This definitely enabled me to get some shots that I wouldn't have taken with the 40D (either because I wouldn't have had it with me in the first place, or I wouldn't have been able to bring the right lens to bear on the subject). The other plus was being able to quickly swop to grabbing HD video when the opportunity presented itself - which enabled me to capture some really cool footage of a leopard jumping from a tree at a group of impala! The downside however was the performance in lower light, namely the critical periods around sunrise and sunset. Stills images were ok but trying to get shots of moving animals proved quite hard and the resulting pictures either lost some sharpness due to increased exposure time or suffered from noise issues if I bumped the ISO up. I hope you enjoy the images below, you can see more in the whole gallery if you want to compare to the 40D shots or are just generally interested in African wildlife. Questions and feedback welcome.
