I recently made a trip to San Diego and decided it would be the perfect place to test out my new GH3. I made a real effort to pack as light as possible so the only gear I brought was the GH3, Panasonic 12-35mm, Panasonic 45-200mm, a Gitzo carbon fiber monopod, and a gorilla pod. It was an awesome trip and I had a blast learning the features of the GH3. My only regret is I really wished I had a tripod over the monopod for those longer telephoto shots. All in all very impressed with the setup considering how bare bones it was.
