I am Utaka GODO, a bird illustrator in Japan. I was a student in U.K to study natural history illustration. All Rights Reserved
I have changed my camera for Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G8 with 100-400 zoom Lens to take bird photos. The camera is very quiet, light weight (total only 1,490g!). Anti-shake mode, dust and rain proof are equipped on camera body and lens both. It is great for field users.
Some friends of mine suggested me to check GH5 before buying G8 however it is over performance for me, especially high number of pixels and movie function. Even though these are nice to high quality solution, I expect to need external hard disk more and more to save data. As my result, G8 is my best.
