Discover Panasonic’s Social Community for Hybrid Photographers
Panasonic launched the Lumix Luminary Lounge, a new social community for hybrid photographers where hybrid photography and other photo content will be hosted by Lumix Luminary photographers and sponsored by Panasonic.
Panasonic is spreading the word about hybrid photography, the combination of still, video, and audio as a form of photographic display in tune with the social media world. Panasonic feels this is the first photo community centered on a true social media experience. Users who join the community through various social media channels have the opportunity to interact with the Lumix Luminary photographers, a group of photography professionals and enthusiasts hand selected by Panasonic who act as ambassadors for their brand.
A second phase to the Lumix Luminary Lounge community will incorporate Google+ Hangouts with the Lumix Luminary photographers, fan interaction through Instagram, new Luminary photographers’ biographies and enhanced Facebook interaction. The site currently supports Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
To get the community started, the Lumix Luminary team created the GX7 Change Your Perspective Tour to promote hybrid photography to Panasonic dealers throughout the U.S. As ambassadors for the Lumix G brand, the Luminary team will begin their journey in Chicago armed with the latest Lumix digital single-lens mirrorless model (compact system camera), the DMC-GX7. The GX7 enables you to change your viewing perspective with high-color-accuracy and an integrated 90º tiltable LVF (live viewfinder). The Luminary photographers will post hybrid and still imagery throughout the tour and will interact with fans through tweets.
The trip is being documented on us.panasonic.com/lumixlounge, which can be viewed on a PC or any mobile device. The Lumix Luminary Lounge will also host a contest with a GX7 as the prize so don’t miss out. panasonic.com
