#UnseenUttarakhand with Panasonic Lumix G85 – A Review Of This Device
During our recent #UnseenUttarakhand road trip, we had the privilege of having some hands-on experience with the Panasonic Lumix G85 camera. The road trip was designed to explore the lesser known and unexplored reaches of the Rudraprayag district in the state of Uttarakhand. We set out from Delhi on our Bullets and were headed to the first destination on the list, Chopta. The base of the trek to the Chandrashila peak, via Tungnath.
Upon reaching, we could not resist photographing the serene landscapes on the mirrorless G85. The camera is compact and it is ideal for travelling especially on a bike. We used the camera to take some breathtaking shots of the Himalayan landscape. G85 is a mirror-less camera and that makes it stand out from the rest of the mid-range mirrored cameras like the Canon 80D which I was using earlier. Its size makes it an ideal option for bikers, trekkers, and travellers.
We were not lucky enough and the trip was marred by bad weather conditions and heavy cloud cover. This is where the G85’s Intelligent Auto Mode came in handy. The continually changing conditions made it difficult for us to adjust the setting manually and we had to rely on the Intelligent Auto Mode. The mode works surprisingly very well and produces stunning results.
With the camera, you can take some very beautiful high-resolution timelapses. To shoot a timelapse you can adjust the settings and manually set the number of shots over time. The video also gets compiled in the camera itself and you don’t need any external software to carry out the same.
