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...

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...
