Hi all, I'm looking for a good camcorder, suitable for recording conference talks (i.e. a person standing next to a projection screen, and talks for ~45 minutes). I've used a pretty low-end camera so far - Samsung HMX-H200BN, which is a pretty cheap camera and did a good job, but I'm getting more and more annoyed by the limitations. So I'm looking for a good replacement. What annoys me on the current camera: the video is split into ~2GB segments, but there are gaps (3-4 seconds, AFAIK),...

Hello all, may I ask for some advice I have a Panasonic G2, I like it a lot, feels right the controls are easy to use, the tilt and swivel and touch screen is great. I wonder if it would be worth upgrading to the G6 or the Olympus OMD E-M5? Cheers - Jim

Which would you rather have? The 70-200G1 with the 1.4x or 2x T/C or the 70-400G2? I do a lot of travel and like to shoot a lot of landscape and architecture shots when I travel. --Marine math: 1 shot = 12 kills.

Hi, I am currently using a SGS2 since launch, which is 2.5 years now. I'm now on my second battery and with low usage I could get 14 hours from the phone-which is just enough for me to use throughout the day. I'd struggle to get 8 hours with heavy usage. The phone's been submerged once, and sand/dust got into the camera over time. I managed to fix both using guides from the internet. Things I want in a phone are: -Great camera. I think fast shutter speed or dedicated camera button should...

My question is, what should I use for longer focal length, around 200mm along with the Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 for weddings? Story follows: I am shooting a wedding soon (I have done several), but my question is I am going to rent a lens or two for my A7/A99. I have a CZ 24-70mm f/2.8, and a 70-210mm f/4 beer can. Both were fine for the last wedding I shot, but would like to rent the Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 so I can both test it out and have fun shooting it for a wedding. I don't see that Sony has any...

Hey guys, 2 days ago picked up a mint used Panasonic GF1. I was thinking I’d cut my teeth on this before I dropped more serious money on a newer model. So far everything looks great. Manual focus on the 2x crop body is easier than I expected and I’m getting used to the controls and menu system. Last night I installed the aftermarket firmware with LPowell Reliable In-Camera Playback Patch v2 (GH1, GF1, G2). 720p Video looks great, using the Death Chart I maxed out at ~38mbps. Full manual video...

First time ever posting on a forum because I'm so confused.  i've been reading alot about cameras and what to buy, i've been reading on this forum as well as other photographer blogs as well, so even though it may sound like millionth help quesiton, here goes. I own a canon-G10, not happy with it. it's really giving me the fits.  Either i'm demanding more from it or there's something just wrong with it.  Indoor quality is just poor, i have to use a flash to compensate, and i've left a lot of...

I'm really a novice in this field (mft), but I currently have a Lumix G2, and am trying to decide what will give better low light performance, faster lens/es, newer camera body (GX7; G6;), both, camera body and lens/es, or moving up to a completely larger sensor? I know faster glass will help, but will the investment in glass be worth it when the sensor on the G2 is "ancient technology"? Thanks, Tom

One of the hardest decisions I have regarding camera equipment. To start, I'm an active octogenarian and have been an amateur photographer for over 64 years, But now due to my wife's ill health I am unable to travel far, my main excursions are to local shopping center for food supplies. With the result that my G5 seldom is used. I can't imagine being without a camera, but my present one is now really overkill for the use it gets. So my thoughts are to get a bridge type as a replacement, and...
