  • I have an FZ150 and the base ISO noise difference in images is dramatic when the NR is turned down to -2, max setting. The GX7 NR can be turned down to -5, is this the setting we should choose to ...
  • It's the G7 not the GX7. I just want everyone who may be thinking of getting a G7 to see how it performs in all lighting types, this is actually the type of weather which has prevailed across much ...
  • Bright blue skies !! might be waiting a while, weather has been consistently wet and grey skies most of the time. All jpeg with -3 NR and pp'd in Picasa.
  • Created discussions G7 & Red Arrows
    All with the 14-140mm. Felt it did just ok - seems to be a lot of noise
  • Replied in G7: Day one
    Photo style was standard with -3NR. Been looking at GX7 jpeg settings and would assume G7 will be same,IR also at Standard. Couple more
  • Replied in G7: Day one
    I was taking the shot of the red boat when the boat with the little girl came from behind me, didn't have time to compose or check metering etc so am quite pleased considering it was grab shot - ...
  • Replied in G7: Day one
    Sorry but I havent a clue what you mean - :-( These are stills in case you think they are video extracts.
  • Created discussions G7: Day one
    I have begun using the G7 and have taken about 100 shots so far. First impressions are good,the 14-140 looks to have very even IQ and the camera feels well balanced with it. The EVF is very good ...
  • Currently empty but hopefully will begin to fill up quickly. https://www.flickr.com/groups/2841076@N20/
  • Created discussions G7 UK group on flickr
    There is a new group on flickr for images taken in the UK with the G7. I started a similar group for the FZ150 when launched and it has became a really good group with some superb shots,hopefully ...
  • Wow, what a picture, colour is so rich. If we all get shots like that out of the G7 then there will be a lot of happy users,camera shops and a manufacturer. Just wonderful to click the link and see ...
  • Replied in FZ1000/G7
    Many thanks for the feedback on the G6/14-140mm,it was a very popular choice in the UK and was often available on Amazon lightning deals. I have the G5 which is the same as the G6 but I also have ...
  • Replied in FZ1000/G7
    Sorry bud, I probably sowed the seeds of confusion so let me try and sort out the still side of the confusion at least, I don't do video. I purchased the G7 with the 14-140mm today and like you am ...
  • Replied in FZ1000/G7
    At base ISO "without" the right lens the FZ1000 could outshine the G7. However put any of  the Panasonic primes or the better zooms on the G7 and I expect it will outshine the FZ1000. The 14-140mm ...
  • Replied in got my XT10!
    If you were using the 16-50mm kit lens on A6000 do not be surprised at the IQ difference. It is genarally regarded as one of the worst kit lenses currently available. With the right glass the A6000 ...
  • I am in the UK and as far as I am aware retailers are awaiting stock, and we are awaiting feedback/reviews !! - patiently of course :-x
  • I think the E-M10 is out, but part of me is still swithering on the Fuji. The G7 shares the sensor of the GM1 and I am happy with the IQ, no X-A1 at high ISO but I don't do much low light stuff.
  • I have the GM1 which uses the same sensor as the GX7 and now the G7. The IQ of the GM1 is better than the G5. I tend to agree with the thought on the Oly handling and menus, tried an E-M5 and ...
  • My thinking in considering the X-T10 was on the basis of it having a viewfinder. I also understand from reviews that the sensor in the X-T10 is better than the G7 sensor. Selling the bodies and ...
  • Created discussions X-T10, E-M10 or G7
    I have a Panasonic GM1 with the 12-32 mm and G5 with the 14-42 mm MKII and 45-150mm and have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Panasonic G7. My intention was to sell the G5 and 14-42 , ...
