Pulitzer Prize-winning Australian photojournalist Daniel Berehulak has visited over 60 countries covering history-shaping events including the Iraq war, the trial of Saddam Hussein, child labour in India, Afghanistan elections and the return of Benazir Bhutto to Pakistan, and documented people coping with the aftermath of the Japan Tsunami and the Chernobyl disaster.
This immensely respected photographic storyteller took our new flagship LUMIX DC-GH5 mirrorless camera to the Tonle Sap Lake area in Cambodia, one of the world’s most varied and productive ecosystems, where an abundance of activity, history, amazing colour and welcoming people made for a great environment to test the camera’s capabilities. Berehulak reported the GH5 to be an excellent tool for photojournalism, providing professional-level lenses in a lightweight, compact, and non-intimidating form.
LUMIX GH5 Impressions by Daniel Berehulak
“Millions of people depend on the Mekong river and its’ tributaries. Having the new GH5 allowed me to capture the afternoon light as it danced on top of the lake giving stunning reproductions of vivid colour and rustic textures of lives on and around the water’s edge. The 5-axis Dual I.S.2 allowed me to capture moments in low light producing high quality images in difficult conditions. The LUMIX GH5 became the most welcome companion that provided me flexibility and freedom to capture the vibrancy and life of its inhabitants.”
– Daniel Berehulak, Photojournalist
