PANASONIC IS TAKING OVER THE STORE!
Buckle up for a big day of fun and photography at Precision
Panasonic Lumix will be in all facets of the store with a sales demo up the center aisle all day, a free macro workshop in the morning and our first-ever Panasonic Experience featuring a food photography workshop and editorial cooking lifestyle shoot with instruction from local food bloggers Mariana and Ian McEnroe in the afternoon. You can find their work at Yes! More! Please!
We’ll be running a special Trade In and Trade Up program Friday, Aug. 17, and Saturday, Aug. 18, on select Panasonic Lumix cameras including the G9, GH5S and the GX85 two lens kit. Trade in a working interchangeable lens camera for additional bonus savings on top of your trade in value and current rebates.
Join Panasonic’s Jack Salamanchuk in the Precision Camera lounge for a FREE two-hour session on shooting high-quality macro images with a unique twist — instead of flowers and bugs we’ll be photographing circuit boards from vintage electronics! This session is designed to get anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to make fantastic looking images of small objects a road map to making dynamic images of the miniature world.
In this session, Jack will introduce turn-key setups sure to get you creating the high-quality images you imagine — regardless of your budget.
This is a two-hour session with a 15-minute break in the Precision Camera lounge that will involve slide presentation and live demonstration.
