The 100th anniversary of the well-documented sinking of the Titanic is quickly approaching. In remembering the tragic accident that occurred on the Atlantic Ocean on the ill-stricken, ice-cold day of April 15th, 1912, we remember that if it weren’t for Irish Jesuit priest and photographer, Francis Browne, we probably wouldn’t know how stunning the RMS Titanic truly was.
Photography energized Browne, and if it weren’t for his uncle who bought him the camera he would use, we aren’t quite sure that Browne would have dealt with the art form. While on-board, he made it a point to snap numerous photographs of the massive ship. Little did he know that these exact photographs would serve as the references for designing the set for James Cameron’s Titanic, which would be released 85 years later.
Rather than re-write the book and make a drastic change to the current GF3 formula, for better or for worse, Panasonic decided to keep the now official GF5′s upgrades marginal at best. As shown through the various image leaks that surfaced over the past month, cosmetically, the GF5 is nearly identical to that of it’s predecessor, with only minor ergonomic changes coming by way of a vastly improved hand-grip.
