  • While in Raleigh, NC this week I suddenly found myself trapped in a snow storm. I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to take the Panasonic GH5 out and shoot some 180fps slow motion. The weather got to be a bit bad, so I didn't shoot very long. I am pretty happy with the results I got! I hope this snow stops soon so I can get back to work and eventually back home! Panasonic GH5 180fps...
