My New Vlogging Camera Panasonic Lumix G9

I'm finally upgrading my vlogging camera from the Canon G7X mkII to the Panasonic Lumix G9. I did a lot of research on cameras and the Lumix G9 seemed to be the best bang for the buck in a light weight package with Panasonic's best face tracking technology to date. I was close to going with the GH5 but from what I was hearing from other people the G9 has better face tracing and is lighter. Those are the only two reasons I went for the G9.

Now time to test this camera out and see what I can do with it. I'm pleased to say that the quality of my vlogs going forward will be a lot better quality.

In this mini two part series I unbox the Lumix G9, battery grip, Lumix G 25mm f1.7, Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f4 and Rode Video Micro. Than I do a quick test with the mic and Lumix G9 against the Canon EOS R. Thanks for watching.

Coming soon i’ll do some vlogging test where I put the Canon EOS R up against the Lumix G9 to see which camera is better in which situation.


Thanks for watching. If you have any questions leave them in the video comments on YouTube and i’ll get back to you with my answers as soon as I can.

Cheers.

Microstock Photography Series

Vasko Obscura: Hey people of the internet welcome to this vlog series exploring microstock in 2019. I’m going to be exploring the world of stock photography from a fresh perspective now that I’ve been out of the game for nine years. I am making a series of videos documenting my return to stock photography while at the same time using my experience in the industry to create tutorial videos for those of you looking to get into the industry. I’ll be posing all the videos in this series on this blog post.

My goal is to create videos that you people of the internet find value in so if you have any suggestions or feedback please feel free to leave comments on the YouTube videos and i’ll respond.

I was a full time microstock shooter with iSockPhoto from 2005 till 2010-ish. It was my ticket into the photography world. I learned so much through producing stock photos. Not only was shooting stock photography a great way to learn how to shoot photos but it also allowed me to build up a strong passive income stream. Even after I stopped shooting stock photos I was still generating $4000 a month from photo sales. However nothing lasts forever and that income stream has dwindled to $200 a month. I still find it amazing that I’m generating any revenue from work I did 9 years ago. This brings me to the reason I’m getting back into microstock photography. Passive income is a great way to supplement your income and I plan on building up a profitable portfolio again. So come join me on this six month adventure back into the world of microstock and hopefully I can inspire some of you out there to get into microstock too.

If you find value in the videos i’m producing please subscribe to my YouTube channel I would really appreciate it. You can also find me on Instagram @vaskoobscura and Twitter @vaskoobscura as well.

First Shoot with the Canon EOS R

Studio V Photography: Hey guys welcome to the vlog. Here are the photos of Rock N’ Roll babe Molly Rennick in her Gold Bikini. We shot these in the the Dominican Republic on the VX2TV Beach Party trip. It was an awesome trip had an awesome time you can check out more video from the trip on the VX2TV YouTube channel.

These shots are from my very first photo shoot with the Canon EOS R. I had pre-ordered the camera and it arrived two days before I took off for the Dominican Republic. I brought it down with me fingers crossed and decided to test it out with Molly. I shot these with no poloraizer or ND filter. I wanted to see how the camera handled the high contrast of the sunset behind the model with no help. Also these images were shot in full rez jpg and edited in Photoshop. Overall I have to say i’m pretty happy with the results considering it was just jpg. Stay tuned more hot photo shoots from the VX2TV Beach party coming soon.

My review video of the Canon EOS R after one week of shooting with the camera.
