Here at Panasonic, we’ve been working with some of the best known photography bloggers the UK has to offer. Using various cameras from the Lumix 4K range, the likes of Charli and Ben from wanderlusters.com, Matt from bucketsandspadesblog.com and Paul from aluxurytravelblog.com, as well as others, have been out and about capturing fleeting moments and unique pictures shot in 4K photo mode.

4K photography is about pulling stills from video files to choose the best image possible, a great asset when trying to shoot fast-paced action. Each 4K camera from the Lumix line up boasts the ability to shoot thirty frames per second, making it easy to extract a high quality shot from a moment missed on a normal camera. Here’s a look at how the bloggers captured their magic shots...

Another Lumix photographer hero, Paul, has had tons of fun shooting his beloved energetic dog George. Normally photography wouldn’t be able to capture the kind of shots Paul was able to, but with the help of the 4K photo mode he caught some special shots.
