    My name is Sanjeev Kumar and I am from Hosur a small town in Tamil Nadu, India. I came across mu-43.com about a year ago when I was researching mirrorless cameras.

    I photograph wildlife in the forests around my town. Mainly elephants, which are in a spot of trouble and in need of conservation. I am also part of a not for profit organization (www.kans.org.in) which works for conservation in these parts.

    I used a Nikon set up with 80-400 zoom lens and 10-20 wide angle zoom. After some time, I started feeling weighed down by all the gear I was carrying and many times, I missed important opportunities because I was not carrying my huge camera. A couple of close calls with elephants convinced me to look for lighter alternatives.

    I chose Panasonic GH2 with Lumix 14140 and Lumix 100300 lenses. The change made sure that I did not hesitate to carry my camera, and I could now shoot wonderful HD videos which is creating a great impact in my conservation activity.

    I am an engineer and machinist by profession.
    Warm regards
