  • uRR, Thanks for a very complete and useful answer--went way beyond my question to point out a number of things I had failed to consider.
  • Thanks for the info! It looked to me (from reading the manual) that the stop motion mode was actually easier to work with, since it didn't require going into the "play/view" mode to save the ...
  • Thanks! Clearly timelapse is NOT suitable for stop motion animation projects, but the reverse may not be true: from the manual (pages 189-193) it appears that stop motion can be set up in the same ...
  • Created questions Time lapse, or stop motion?
    Aloha, I'm thinking of using the GX7 to shoot the changing colors of sunset.  I would use either the time lapse function or the stop motion function. From reading the manual, they seem very similar ...
  • This statement should be posted prominently at the top of every "rumor" website and thread.  Thanks for reminding us of the futility of idle speculation!  ;>)

    Timmbits,
    Interesting comment about smartphones. I gave up on "tough" cameras due to the horrendous IQ; I came to this page (again) today after googling "tough cam vs. waterproof smart phone."
    So...

  • 'Cause it makes the person who says it feel superior. I must agree here.  The IQ of the a77ii is very superior to the GH3 (unfortunately the control layout and some aspects of video shooting made ...
  • Good points, but regarding the last question (mft / 1in), they may argue about it but only at a certain level. I love my GH3 and GX7, but I'm never going to be able to delude myself (or anyone ...

    It's an old review, but never to late to wonder about it...
    "Good for: Those seeking excellent photo and video quality..."
    "Not so good for: ...video enthusiasts..."
    Huh?
    The video is great; just...

    You can use the Oly lenses, but remember that:
    1. GX7 IBIS isn't as robust as Oly,
    2. GX7 IBIS does not work in video mode.
    It is much safer to stick with Panny lenses since they all have IS and...

    You can use the Quick Menu (button on the back of the camera).
    Push the Q menu button.
    Toggle to the video setting, then
    Use down toggle to get into the setting, then
    Toggle L/R to get the speed...

    Serious divers don't always stop at 40ft, and going through surf can create sudden pressure changes. Also, a certain percentage of TG cameras do leak at even shallow depths.

    There are a lot of weatherproof cameras, but they cost more, and they are usually bigger and heavier. GH3, etc. On the other hand, you can get far better images, and great video with them. ...

  • Commented on 2014 Waterproof Camera Roundup article

    The IQ of the first sample photo (dock, boats, etc.) at full size is beyond bad, it's awful. OK for email sharing, but no way could you do even an 8x10in print of anything detailed, much less do...

  • More good news: it's more than just resolution. "...regardless of whether you notice the extra resolution of 4K in terms of detail you will notice the extra resolution in terms of colour, tonality ...

    RichRMA,
    You may be missing the point. When some people talk about lack of lenses, they don't mean that they need a dozen lenses in their kit. They mean that key lenses that they or others often...

    Vesku,
    I think the 14-140mm lens is the problem, not the GH4. That lens did not work well on my GH3 or my GX7, so I sent it back. It might be more acceptable at a really cheap price, but when I...

  • So look at a better picture. Check out this test: http://www.bpopeproductions.com/index.php/easyblog/entry/gh4-4k-photo-mode-8mp-stills Also, take your cell phone, shoot action (say, surfers) from ...
