The Micro Four Thirds Camera Bag Challenge

After receiving my new Panasonic Lumix G5 last week I found myself in quite a dilemma. I did not have a bag that fit it. The current LowePro Edit 110 I was using for my GF3 was not big enough, and my other bags were too big. Watch as I continue my migration to mirrorless and […]
