Review Panasonic Lumix GF-5

Imagine realizata in timpul review Panasonic Lumix GF-5 de la F64 Studio, de Radu Dumitrescu - Lisabona, Portugalia 2012.

Din punctul meu de vedere, cel mai eficient mod de a vedea performanțele unui aparat este un hands-on review. Un test realizat în condiții variate, în viața reală. Acum puțin timp am avut ocazia de a testa un aparat diferit de cele cu care sunt obișnuit. Este vorba de un mirrorless Panasonic, de dimensiuni reduse – practic de mărimea unui aparat compact – dar cu obiective interschimbabile și senzor de dimensiuni generoase (micro 4/3). Aparatul pe care l-am testat este Panasonic Lumix GF-5, iar timp de o săptămână și un pic l-am plimbat pe străzile din Portugalia.

A venit echipat cu obiectivul 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Power OIS, exact ca în kitul DMC-GF5XEG-K.

Kathmandu – First Impressions

Kathmandu - Radu Dumitrescu

I arrived in Kathmandu a bit confused. Got off the plane and the airport looked a lot like a bus station. I had two things to do before I could get out of the airport: take a photo and pay for the visa. Didn’t seem like a lot of things to do, but they lasted for over an hour.

Finally I got through the infinite visa queue and my passport was the newly found owner of a 30day visa. I get my luggage and go towards the exit, together with a dutch couple that I met while waiting. As we go down the flight of stairs we see another ginormous queue with a sign saying “CUSTOMS” at its end. We all said: “S**t. Not another one”. One of the security guards, after seeing the look on our faces, came to us and led us straight to the exit saying “No, only for locals, no for tourists”.

As we got to the exit we were invaded by a lot of cab drivers. Felt close to the sensation I had at home. Since I knew that my friends were waiting and had absolutely no idea on where I was going I rejected all of them. Didn’t even know if their prices were good or not. I just assumed that they’re higher because of our location. I say goodbye to the dutch couple and join my friends. We look for a taxi but their prices are at least double from the ones I heard inside the airport. It’s the first thing I learned about Nepal. The price you hear at fist is just a greeting. I think its sole purpose is for you to practice dividing by 2 or 3. We took the cab that offered a free ride to the hotel if we stayed at that specific hotel.

Concert Urma – Paris 2010

29 mai  a fost ziua in care Urma a sustinut primul lor concert in Paris, chiar in Palatul de Behague, care este si Ambasada Romaniei in Paris.

Un loc boem, maiestuos, intr-un oras la fel de boem avea sa gazduiasca peste 1000 de oameni (inscrisi online) pentru a 3-a editie Garden Party Academic.

Dupa 3 ore de zbor am ajuns pe aerorportul Charles de Gaulle, unde un Concorde trona pe un stand, aparat care a fost in fruntea flotei Air France timp de aproximativ 40 de ani.

Am fost condusi pana in 7eme arrondissement, unde se afla si ambasada si hotelul in care am fost cazati. Foarte aproape de Turnul Eiffel, pe niste strazi pline de cafenele, florarii si tarabe cu

branzeturi.

London

In sfarsit, am gasit un pic de timp ca sa fac ordine in cele  2-3 poze pe care le-am facut in Londra.

Primul contact cu orasul a fost destul de brutal. Era sa dea o masina peste mine, deoarece cand am traversat m-am uitat in stanga, din reflex.

Acolo toti soferii sunt nebuni, dar TOTI. Toate masinile merg pe contrasens. Soferul a oprit […]

probabil si-a dat seama ca-s nitel dezorientat, iar eu m-am intors si mi-am cerut scuze. Bineinteles ca mi-am cerut scuze pasagerului, deoarece volanul se afla pe partea cealalta. Foarte ciudata senzatia pe care o ai cand te uiti la o masina ca trece pe langa tine si vezi “soferul” cum sta cu mainile la ceafa.
