You already know…I’m a huge fan of Panasonic, and honestly, 4KVideo  is life changing for me when capturing family travel moments and converting them into 4KPhoto. Recently, my multigenerational family  traveled to the Grant Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado, I carried my Panasonic Luxmi DMC-LX100 to show moms how shooting 4K videos takes the stress out of capturing that ONE perfect shot when traveling.

You’ve likely already read my first review: Panasonic DMC-LX100: 4K Photo The Next Big Thing, capturing my granddaughter’s softball grand slam with 4K Video. That’s one of those everyday family moments that you always remember, but it takes hitting the camera button at just the right moment to capture the photo. Unless you have the 4KVideo capability.

My husband and I were traveling to southern Colorado at the same time our oldest daughter, her husband and our two grandkids were on summer vacation in Pueblo.  We planned on meeting in the middle to explore the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve near Alamosa.

Seasonally the waters flow from the Medano and Sand Creeks onto the valley of the Great Sand Dunes. The flow is never more than a few inches, so a perfect playground for kids to splash it, cooling down after walking on the hot sand of  North America’s tallest sand dunes, surprisingly located in Colorado.  Travelers can also rent a “sand board” and slide down the sand peaks.

I captured all these family travel moments with my Panasonic DMC-LX100 in 4KVideo and created still photos of the action.

The YouTube video below shows a selection of the 4KVideo I shot and turned into #4Kphotos.  Watch the video and then read on for more tips.
