India is a land of abundant festivals. This warmth of cheer, laugh and togetherness is the shared essence felt in every festival. Holi is the most vibrant festival, famous around the world celebrated by everyone alike, and the most captivating festival for photographers specially. With colors everywhere, children running around, dancing and playing when the vibe is high the muse is higher for that perfect shot.
But what about your camera when you don’t even bring your phone out sometimes in fear of water and color. Sometimes that is the kind of limitation that either makes you stay away from the celebration in order to shoot or leave your cameras behind. While brands like Panasonic Lumix have cameras that can be used under any condition, however, below are some precautionary steps one can take:

With Lumix cameras, close up shot lenses like 100mm, 50mm, DFD autofocus and with 5 axis dual IS you can capture every festive vibe, emotions with enhanced clarity and focus.
