The Panasonic LX100 is one of our favorite semi-pocketable compact cameras. This class of high end compacts offer great image quality and build quality, while also being incredibly compact and portable, making them great travel and family cameras for when the full DSLR/Mirrorless kit is just overkill.
These days many photographers like to work in a variety of situations, from bright noon sun to starlight, but many cameras can’t handle themselves well in all these situations.

We all love bokeh, after all, what’s not to like?! Actually, there is quite a bit not to like in the form of digits on the price tag. The best bokeh is not a cheap thing to attain, but with that said, bokeh is hardly extremely expensive either. Many lenses that are extremely affordable can offer you bokeh that fights above it’s pay grade.
You want to save money, we want to save you money, but you also want the best bokeh for your money. If that is the case, than this is the list for you, 10 ultra affordable lenses that will give you more bokeh than they should for the price.
Telephoto zooms are more popular in the party and event scene than you might think initially from the outside. These fast lenses with long-range help photographers capture interactions from a distance without disturbing anyone. You certainly shouldn’t be using a telephoto zoom for an entire party or event in most cases, but as part of a well-rounded party and event photography kit, these make for valuable tools.
Now just as in our previous posts on this subject, we will be going over some high-end and budget options for each camera system, so none of you need to feel left out because of how much you can spend on the lens.
So here are our top picks for telephoto zoom lenses from the event and party photography perspective…

Micro Four Thirds still gets a bad rap in a lot of photographic circles due to its sensor size, but many are now coming to terms with that on the Fujifilm side of the equation. We have hit this sort of wonderful place to where sensor size really doesn’t matter as much as it did in the last. Surely, there are things APS-C or FF will do better, but in terms of general photography, Micro Four Thirds cameras are just as capable as their larger format brothers.
So if you have a new Micro Four Thirds camera or you are in the process of deciding on a new kit, you may be wondering about good budget options to fill out your fit. This is exactly the post for you if that is the case.
We have a giant master list of what we feel the best budget lenses are for every system, and you can find that here, but in this post we wanted to highlight our picks for the best budget lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system.
Mirrorless cameras are not the newfangled technology they used to be. Mirrorless systems from Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, and Olympus have had years to build solid systems with various camera and lens options that allow them to be capable of creating stunning images just as well as any DSLR. So you may be considering your first interchangeable lens camera, or maybe you have a DSLR and you are interested in taking advantage of some of the features that mirrorless brings to the table, whatever your reason is you may be asking yourself how to choose between the various options.
In this post, we hope to be able to help you figure out what questions to ask yourself when considering these various cameras and systems. Ideally, this will allow you to pick up a mirrorless camera in a system that will fit your wants and needs as a photographer so that you can take full advantage of it.
