I loaned out my Panasnoic G5 to a friend so he could take some photos at his daughter's wedding. But in the time since I made the committment, an opportunity to shoot a hot air ballon festival with an "All Access" pass has come up. So, I need two cameras but only have the GX1 -- what do I do? Well, I decide to resurrect my daughter's old Panasonic G1 and shoot it. It's the "granddaddy" of micro four thirds cameras. Can I tease shots out of it? Here are some shots I took on my way home today. It was bright afternoon with harsh shadows -- worst case for a sensor with low dynamic range. But it did surprisingly well. Keep in mind I shot slightly dark, and lifted the shadows heavilly to deal with the contrast. All are single exposures, no HDR and done with the Panasonic DMC-G1 wearing a Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 lens.

It's still "got it".
