Light weight and blown away
I don´t have to mention again that I got a real fan of my Lumix GH3 and I almost substituted the bigger Sony EX3 with this tiny camera. But, yes, there are „buts“, the camera’s advantage showed to be also a big disadvantage. I filmed for a story on the IPO of Spain’s airport operator AENA. I was able to film at the apron of Madrid’s international airport Barajas and I took the chance to film one of these huge Antonov 124. I wanted to film some minutes to later speed up the clouds. Unfortunately a wind gust blew round the camera and tripod. This is the moment when it happened:
I was quite afraid that filming would have come to an end. But(!!!) thanks to the Honu Cage the camera was ok.
After that I am quite happy to have this Honu Cage always attached to my camera. It just saved my butt. And after that I will never again move away from my camera – especially under severe weather conditions.
