Cherry Hinton Hall Park in the snow with my GH1

Took my Panasonic GH1 and new tripod over to the park yesterday afternoon and shot an hour or so of people in the snow. It was cold. There are a few rather over-long panning shots, for which I apologise, but I wanted to see how smooth the tripod could pan horizontally and – as you’ll see – vertically. It’s not going to win any prizes, but I was quite happy. Everything was shot in Creative Movie mode, on manual, using the little histogram, because I’ll need to use that when doing talking-head shots for work, and I needed the practice.

Below is the view from where the Folk Festival beer tent is, looking towards the main stage. I must take an identical one in July, when there’ll be 5000 people sprawled out on the grass in front of me. And a pint of Festival Ale in my unmittened hand.
