I started doing time-lapse photography. At first I used to take JPG photos, but since there is a large change in lighting during the sunrise I started to take RAW and JPG. This last session I noticed that I had some dropped frames. My setting was: Panny G5, stock 14mm-22mm lens, ND filter, MF, ISO 200, F20, 1 second shutter, a shot every 3 seconds. This gave the camera 2 seconds to process the image before the next shot. I'm using a Sony 32GB 40MB/s class 10 card. I think the read speed is...
I'm new to photography. I picked up a G5 a few months back for taking time-lapse photos. I'm still trying to understand the camera. In manual mode when setting the shutter and aperture two rows show at the bottom of the display (SS, F). Some parts of the rows are grey and the other part is red. What happens when I select a setting where both shutter speed and aperture are in the red? I know it still takes a picture so I don't know what the red portion means. Below is a photo when of the SS...
Hi, I have my first child on the way beginning of next year, so looking to buy a camera to take lots of family photo's. At the moment my budget is going to be limited to a starter SLR or CSC, which I think are my best options, even if I'm only using the kit lens for a while. My key concern, after image quality, is with the speed of the camera - especially indoors/ in lower light. I previously had an Olympus EPL1 which took great photo's but really struggled to lock on to fast moving objects...
Hi, Does anyone own a G5 and A/V cable? I'm thinking of buying a G5 but I need to know if when you connect the G5 to a TV with the A/V cable, whether you can see camera live view on the TV screen? Sometimes I shoot remotely using a small hand held LCD screen to see camera live view and I trigger the camera with wired remote. This works fine on an old Powershot that I have but I want to upgrade to a bigger sensor and keep this remote live view feature. Thanks for any help!
I am about to come into some money that I want to invest in improving the quality of my images. My budget will be about $1000, and maybe $1200 maximum. I'm not a pro, just an enthusiast that likes to take pictures. I currently have the following equipment: Panasonic G5 camera 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 standard zoom 45-175mm f/4-5.6 power zoom 100-300mm f/4-5.6 long tele zoom 25mm f/1.4 PanaLeica fast prime 45mm f/2.8 PanaLeica macro (which I also use for some portraits and as a short tele). I shoot...
Just got a Panasonic G5 and really enjoy using it and learning all the in and outs, but I can't seem to figure out why the power zoom lever doesn't work to power the lens. The lens was the standard kit lens that came with the camera. Great deal, by the way from Amazon at $299! I also have another larger zoom lens and that also doesn't work with the lever. Am I missing a control set, or worst, there is something wrong with the camera. My guess is I am missing something, because the lever will...
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...
I've been wanting something more than the point and shoots for sometime. Years ago I had a decent 35mm camera and really missed the versatility of it. I just couldn't justify the price of a full size camera like the Nikon, Cannon, etc. Especially with the costs of the lenses. For the last few years I've had a Panasonic FZ-18. It was a decent enough camera but never really got me excited about using it much. One day I was browsing on Amazon and they had the Panasonic GF3 on sale. I did a...
