This past summer my Panasonic Lumix colleague Tom Curley and fellow Lumix Luminary Griffin Hammond followed me to Alaska to produce Lumix Stories: Daniel J. Cox. We spent three days documenting brown bears, puffins, and red fox using the new Lumix GH5 camera.

I wanted to share the inspiration that makes me so passionate about this new model and the system overall. Be sure to check out the compilation video showcasing that many professional photographers of all backgrounds are, in fact, dropping the DSLR in favor of lighter and more media diverse mirrorless cameras.

Stars flicker through the orange light created by the town of Morondava off in the distance. Sacred Baobab trees stand tall as these have done for several hundred years. Shot with the Lumix GH5 and Leica 12mm F/1.4 lens

One of the most dangerous animals in Africa is the hippopotamus. As fierce as they can be, their ferocity has not stopped their continual decline. They are now considered "vulnerable" by the IUCN due to poaching (poachers want their small ivory tusks) and ongoing loss of habitat. These two were having a bit of a skirmish in a small pool when I shot this. It was captured with the Lumix GH5 and the Leica 100-400mm at 2000 ISO.

One of the most endangered animals on the planet is the wild dog. There are less than 5,000 of them left in all of Africa. I've seen about a dozen in my many years of coming to Africa, and this particular animal was one of a small pack of three that inhabits the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park in South Africa. Hunting and habitat loss are the main reasons for their small numbers. Only humans can decide whether we're willing to share the planet with other creatures.

Don't confuse this spotted cat stretched out running full tilt with a cheetah. This is actually a leopard impersonating a cheetah. We found this guy just after he and another male had been settling a territory dispute and he was not interested in hanging around. We were in our Land Cruiser driving slowly, bumping and jostling over rocks, while I was trying to steady the Lumix GH5 and Leica 100-400mm lens. It was almost impossible to keep the camera to my eye and able to follow this speeding cat. Dual IS was a serious help.

More professional photographers testify to the incredible still photo capabilities of Panasonic's LUMIX GH5. Wedding photographer William Innes and lifestyle photographer Jennifer Maring share their stories in the continuing series of videos showcasing that the LUMIX GH5 goes beyond being just an incredible 'video' camera.

It was a bit of a slow afternoon until the sun went down and we found these three male lions. These guys are just beginning to assert their dominance in the bush of Mala Mala Game Reserve. I shot this image after the sunset, handheld at 1/4 of a second at 3200 ISO. This image was not possible before Dual IS. Lumix GH5 with the35-100mm F/2.8 Vario lens
