During an enforced three-day stay at Holmestrand, a site on South Georgia’s west coast, I was photographing some young king penguins when a young gentoo penguin chick wandered along. It was clearly lost and had a menacing pair of brown skua seabirds in pursuit. One of the skuas 31 COMPETITION swooped in and got hold of its neck.

Our verdict JPEG ISO 12,800 JPEG ISO 25,600 At low sensitivities of ISO 100-400, the GX8 gives sharp, detailed images with bright colours and little visible noise. At ISO 800 noise starts to become obvious in raw files, but Panasonic’s JPEG processing smooths it away quite aggressively, with some impact on fine detail. By ISO 3,200 fine detail has mostly disappeared from JPEGs, and shadow detail has become indistinct, although more can be extracted from raw files. ISO 6,400 is just about usable at a pinch, but the JPEG files show low-frequency colour blotching in the shadows and barely any fine detail at all – shooting in raw and applying your own preferred noise reduction is highly advisable here.
