Boogie Woogie Reindeer by Mike Loomis. This is a song from my daughter's 1st grade Christmas concert, shot with the Panasonic GH1 in 720p 1/30 shutter, entirely handheld from the very back of the auditorium! I was extremely impressed with the image stabilization of the stock 14-140 lens, which is a godsend since I brought my tripod, set it up, and discovered the camera plate was still at home. This was zoomed in all the way. BTW, my daughter is the red head in the antlers and red dress.
Good news, Alabama Shakes fans – the band just announced Sound & Color, the follow up to 2012′s Boys & Girls. Listeners can expect a little something new from the twelve-song collection, which throws in some garage and psychedelic influences alongside the band’s usual blues rock fare.
