I suddenly got dark grey spots on my pictures taken with my GM-5 and the 12-32 kit lens. (See the grey spots in the sky in the photo below.) I tried the "Clean Sensor" option from the settings but it didn't help. The spots don't show when I use my Panasonic 20mm pancake. Wiping off the kit lens with a microfibre cloth did not help. Could it be that it is dust on the sensor, but that it only shows using one lens rather than the other? How do I clean the sensor in this case? Can I use a...

The more I think about it, the more I will opt for the GH4R. I did find a good deal for the GH2, which I could hack and all, but I am not so sure about using a hacked system. And I checked most of the GH2 hacked video samples. They look pretty good, and they would better blend with the LX100 than the current old LX5 and the beloved LX3 I have (no 1080p, either). Maybe I am unconsciously biased, but I like the GH4 video quality better. I see the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 (€200) seems close...

Hi! I've been carrying around the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 for years and have absolutely loved it because of its portability. It's past time to upgrade, though, because I find myself wanting to achieve more with my photos. I was looking at the Panasonic LX100, but that's like a lateral upgrade. If I get the Sony a6300 I can get more lenses and continue to grow over time, right? I'm seeing a lot of sample photos and video from the a6300, but none with the Sony 16-50mm lens that it's packaged...

Hello, Need help with my lovely LX3, All my icons are displayed but the screen is black. I can still use the playback to view other pics I had taken before the problem arose but photos I take show up as a black screen. Appreciate your suggestions.

As a 2nd camera to my Sony DSLR & multiple lenses, I bought an LX1 in 2006. Loved it, especially all the external controls. In 2008, I upgraded to an LX3, which I still have. Mostly unusable at the moment as the charger seems to be down and the batteries only last for about 20 minutes. I also have the LA4 wide angle lens, the FL220 flash, and a leather case (which I never really used, as I preferred to put the LX3 in my pocket). In 2012 I decided that for 2 specific reasons (camera size and...

Hi Would love some help from anyone who has mastered how to use Google Photos. Having decided to use cloud based storage after my expensive dedicated back up hard drive crashed irretrievably, I started storing my photos on Google Drive. This seemed to work fine until some started to migrate of their own accord into random albums on something called Google Photos. So being the good little Google person that I am, I did what I was clearly being encouraged to do and transferred everything onto...

Since the Coolpix A prices dropped to a reasonable price range I'm thinking of buying one. 28mm Is handy for my work as a photo-journalist. 1/2000 flash sync is nice as well. Question; Does anyone ever tried to attach a wide angle converter lens? Like 0,8, 0,7x? I had a blast in the past with a Panasonic Lumix LX3 + wide angle converter lens. Those images were pretty sharp and I got many of them published. The Coolpix A adapter/fliter thread = 46mm if I'm right, os it must be possible I...

I just acquired a new DMC-ZS50, and I'm trying to figure out what all this thing does ... does anyone with this camera know if it can be set to show blinking highlights for overexposure in review mode?  I've always found them very useful to avoid blown-out areas, and I'm not finding it in the manual ...    --Rogerhttp://www.tinius-photo.com/Roger

Hi, I'm finally replacing my trusty old LX3 with a LX100. I want to buy a UV filter for the LX100 to portect the lens. I was wondering if all UV filters will do or if some will cause vignetting and I have to buy a "wide angle" version?

Hi, everyone! I'm new in this forum :). I have a quick question: I love using a small compact camera (dmc-lx3), but sometimes I miss having a speedlight (indoor night). The built in flash is horrible in this situations, because it cannot be tilted to bounce. This camera has a hotshoe. I don't want to use my speedlights because they are heavier and bigger than the camera istelf! :P. And it will miss the point of being something compact to take everywhere. Do you guys know something like...
