Panasonic – Who are they?

“In our view, technology should move us all forward. It should enable us to create abundance out of scarcity, power the things that make our lives easier, and energize our perpetual ambition for progress. Starting with this mindset, we invest in technological innovation that will inspire and amaze, focusing on five important areas.

1. Smart Mobility
As the intelligent digital mesh of the mobility ecosystem, we’re reimaging every aspect of the way we navigate our worlds, creating value for our partners and customers, from connected vehicles and intelligent roadways to mobility’s next big thing.

2. Sustainable Energy
For nine consecutive years, Panasonic has been recognized as a leader in sustainability. We’ve been a pioneer in solar photovoltaic panels, electric vehicle batteries and data center battery-backup solutions, as well as new technologies like hydrogen fuel cells

3. Immersive Experiences
We partner with some of the world’s leading media, entertainment and sports organizations to create live entertainment that immerses fans in the experience, overlaying the physical world with digital technology. And we bring that same world-class expertise to other venues, including concert halls, university classrooms, museums, theme parks, houses of worship, even retail environments.

4. Integrated Supply Chain
From manufacturing facilities to warehouses to stores, we’re working with major customers and partners to bring digital transformation to the supply chain ¬– through automation, robotics, IoT and data analytics, and mobility.

5. Consumer Lifestyle
We’re empowering consumers to live life to the fullest and pursue their passions in photography, media entertainment, gourmet cooking, and beauty and grooming. We do this by harnessing advanced technologies, human-centric design and superior Japanese craftsmanship and reliability.”

Join Panasonic and Shiv Verma in this live webinar:
Thursday, November 19th
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

The camera technology of the last several years has made wildlife, bird, and birds in flight photography easier than it was before. New digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLR) have made action photography much easier than it was when the manual focus was the rule rather than the exception. Now Mirrorless cameras have entered the realm of nature, wildlife, and action photography. Shiv Verma will address the various features of Mirrorless cameras and how to set them up to obtain images that are at par with the best of DSLR’s. You will learn how to obtain tack sharp images; Exposure; Auto Focus Modes; Manual Focus; Flight shot Techniques – handheld and using a tripod with an appropriate lens mount; Panning techniques, and much more!

More about Hunt’s Photo & Video

“Three generations of Farber family ownership have established Hunt’s as a trendsetter in the imaging equipment industry. Begun as a pharmacy in 1889 and acquired by pharmacist Solomon Farber in 1952, Hunt’s began building its camera business during the 1950s under the visionary leadership of Solomon’s son, Jack. As interest in photography grew, Hunt’s began shifting its emphasis from the pharmacy business to the business of cameras and accessories. By 1993, imaging equipment became Hunt’s primary focus.

Led today by Jack’s sons, Scott and Gary, Hunt’s proudly serves a diverse audience of individual, corporate, educational, law enforcement, and government clients as one of the country’s largest retailers of photo, video, and digital imaging products.
