I was a happy user of the G12 but it broke and the only replacement camera with a swivel LCD was the G1x. I knew that the main limitation of the G1x was a lack of true macro (closest distance about 20cm) so I bought a second hand G1x in the hope that the next camera (the G2x) would have a better Macro (and some betters specs) and so I would buy a new G2x. To my disapointment, the Swivel LCD is no more an option on the G2x, and my question is if there is any improvement to the macro mode. If...

Just question about lens movement while attached to camera body. I have just purchased Sony-Carl Zeiss 70-400 G2 for my a99 and was wondering how much movement is normal between the lens and camera body in a circular direction , it has about 1mm of movement and I find this to be unusual & excessive compared to my Carl Zeiss 16-35 f/2.8  in saying that I have noticed it with 3 party lenses which I do not consider the 70-400 to be , any thoughts on this?

I have two Panasonic G5 cameras, that have displayed awful image quality with different lenses (100-300 and 14-42pz, 14-45 even 20).  Even in good light, 160iso, low focal length.  What is wrong?  Could both my G5s be out of whack?  They are lightly used. I replaced a G3 and GH2 with these two G5s and wow, the image quality just isn't there.  :-(  I have had the G2, GF2, G3, GH2 and had no issues.  Something must be off? Have I somehow found the 'kill your image quality setting'?

Hi, I'm looking to buy my first serious camera (with manual controls).I plan to travel to Japan and want a camera that can take proper photos (also capture low light scenery/cityscapes) ;-)I also need a camera that can make "technical" shots of small moving parts, I could use at work. (so good manual and sometimes remote controls - it would be awesome if I could control the camera programatically). So far I had:- Panasonic ZX10 p&s (I really like its ability to record excellent HD video, for...

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...
