  • I'm lucky enough to have both those cameras, and so the best of both worlds! IMO, the GM's Electronic First Curtain of the mechanical shutter is a great feature and finally removes any worries re. ...
  • Replied in Yes, except...
    OP is referring to top of page menu item "Features" which has "Technique" in it's drop-down list. .-- Richard -- .
  • John, why not keep the original raw files of, at least, your best shots? 1. This for archiving and backup of the files in their "purest" untouched form. 2. This in case in the future you decide you ...
  • Replied in Panasonic GM1
    mcmars, Pleased for you that Panasonic could be going to help. It might be that it's only a matter of a sensor clean, but it's in their own interests to try to keep users of their cameras happy. Pa ...
  • Replied in Panasonic GM1
    mcmars, You recently posted <quote> " I do not mind taking a risk w barely used gear to save some bucks." So your complaint sounds a bit hollow now. If the GM1 was a used camera, might not the ...
  • David, it sounds as though you're expecting a Panasonic camera to behave the same as the Olympus camera you're familiar with. Features, menus, and on-camera controls can be different, similar, or ...
  • Jeff, is that true? I haven't researched info about these two cameras, but I thought that usually there was a trade-off between bit-depth and speed of scanning the sensor. So I'd assume the GX8 (if ...
  • I imagine the results from the GM5's in-camera Panorama mode can be quite good.  From my reading on the forum, it seems that some people get it right very quickly, while others find they first ...
  • Highlights/Shadows mode adjustments will have a similar effect to using the tone Curve tool which you find in image editing software (where the curve you set selectively alters the tonal contrast ...
  • As a long-time Faststone user myself, I'd never noticed this till I looked just now in response to your question. (I've always done my WB adjustments elsewhere). But you seem to be right! No ...
  • Alfred, under "Auto" shutter type, the camera will select "Electronic" only when the shutter speed is faster than 1/500 sec. You don't say what your expertise is with raw processing. (For example ...
  • Yes Tom, great on M4/3. Very sharp, and excellent value for money. .-- Richard -- .
  • Dan, very nice pics.  Thanks for showing what the often maligned 45-200 can do at those distances ! .-- Richard -- .
  • If we enjoy post processing, especially when fine-tuning an image, it's often a matter of knowing when to STOP ! Easy to become so immersed in the project that our eyes become adjusted to seeing ...
  • Don't know if this will help clarify things, but if I remember rightly, the above method proposed by Guy is the one I've used in the past to increase the folder number for one of my Panasonic ...
  • Mike, looking at my LR4  Adjustment Brush tool, it seems you just need to click on "Custom" to get the drop-down list where you can save a custom brush effect preset which will contain your ...
  • Yes, the first 3 digits in each image number is the folder number. So if you had two Panasonic cameras, I suppose you could set the second camera to start recording from image number 500-0001. Tom, ...
  • Enabling/disabling the touch operation [MENU] > [Custom] > [Touch Settings]> [Touch Screen]> ON/OFF .-- Richard --
  • I share your frustration. Wouldn't it be great if we had the facility of being able to save different C mode sets, descriptively named, onto a card and be able to load them into the camera as ...
  • The GM5 has two potentially interesting new features for the ham-fisted among us. Cursor Button Lock :  which can be set to a Fn button, thereby giving an on/off toggle to be used quickly, as and ...
