In the 4th and final installment of his series on “How To Set Up Your Panasonic Lumix GH3 Like a BOSS”, MC Contributor and Hybrid Street Photography Ninja Giulio Sciorio (DiscoverMirrorless.com and SmallCameraBigPicture.com) peels back the curtain to reveal how he gets the most out of the GH3’s custom settings.
“I’ll show you how I can quickly build custom settings such as Retro, Color and Monochrome looks and store them in the GH3′s C1-3 buttons…like a BOSS.
Now that you’ve got your function buttons set, quick menu customized and JPEG settings hooked up, you’re almost ready to shoot like a boss playa. What we’ll do now is take those settings and store them into the C1, C2, C3-1, C3-2 and C2-3. Once you got your custom formulas for awesomeness stored for quick recall when shooting, you’ll quickly be able to bounce from shooting a film like color mode to a monochrome, retro, cross process…and shoot video that looks like your stills too!
This is what makes the GH3 so amazing. It’s not that it shoots stills and video, every camera does that, rather its how Panasonic combined the process of shooting stills/motion that when setup properly will transform how you create.
Photography is about creating, professional photography is about the business of creating. As a working pro, the faster I can create and deliver the faster I can grow my business and stand out in my market as a leader.
While some may look at the GH3 simply as a camera I see it as so much more. It’s a tool for creation similar to when I was a kid and the box of crayons went from 16 to 64.
Some might argue that the GH3 is the future, but it’s not. The Gh3 and Hybrid shooting is the here and now!
