Wildlife Photography - the Best Panasonic Cameras and Lenses

Our Wildlife Day 2018 event, held at our Burgess Hill store, was a great day showcasing all of the latest kit you need for taking the best wildlife photographs. We asked Carol from Panasonic what kit she would recommend for budding wildlife photographers.

Wildlife Photography - portable kit for on the go

Taking great photos of wildlife means that you can find yourself in all sorts of situations and environments, so you cannot always afford to lumber heavy kit around with you. As explained by Carol in the video above, the Panasonic range offers some incredible focal length and aperture combinations in surprisingly small packages!

The PannyLeica 100-400mm lens is a great wildlife and Airshow lens and partners very well with the Olympus OMD E-M1 Mk II. However, the real star for wildlife and birding is pairing the Oly camera with the Oly 300mm F4 Pro lens. It's not far short of a perfect combination

We tried the 300mm f/4 and agree it is lovely - the lead image of the bald eagle on our wildlife day blog was taken with that exact combo!
