Hello, I am going to buy new camera for me. My current camera is Panasonic G5. I am not in action or sports. Mostly I travel to parks and scnenic places and like to take pictures of landscape, mountain, river, nature and family/friends gathering. I am not exactly in night photography, but I want dust and post sunset photo to come clean, good IQ and sharp . Still I am not professional and just a hobbiest who wants to play a bit with camera. Last preference is, I do not want my camera to be...

I noticed that even when the AF assist lamp is set to OFF in the G5's menu, it still blinks when the self timer is used. Is there a way to turn that off as well? Or are black tape or a remote control the only solutions?Many thanks,

I have a Lumix G5 and wish to reduce the in camera preview time. I was at an air show on Friday last and was tracking a Tornado. I filled the screen, took the shot then had to wait until the on screen preview finished its time. By the time the screen was clear the aircraft had long gone. I realise I can clear the screen by tapping the shutter button but when trying to shoot something like a jet fighter bomber you don't have any time to fiddle about. Can anyone please tell me in which menu and...

Hi her, Still pretty new to my G5 and busy developing its set-up & capability etc. I have a problem with Auto Bracket (AB) at the moment. For example, I select the AB on the menu, 3-1/3, 0/-/+, step, and set as per the instructions. However, when I then take the 3 photos and review them they come out as: ±0, -1/3, -2/3 and not +1/3. What am I doing wrong? I tried this many times and it's always the same. Hope you can help. David

Maybe someone can help me make sense of this. When I preview my raw files in Windows photo viewer (using the MS Camera Codec Pack), there's a fair amount of image information on the edges that is not making it's way into LR/ACR. I checked and have no import presets applied and lens correction options are not enabled.  But the image is definitely cropped compared to the Windows preview.  However, they both show the same resolution.   I thought setting the aspect ratio on the G5 at 4:3...

A third party lens that I bought, with a proper adapter, mechanically fits my Lumix DMC-G5 well. I have manual control over aperture and focus via the lens controls. The only way to focus I found so far is to use digital zoom. The results are OK, but the procedure is cumbersome and slow. After setting in "Custom Menu" "Shoot w/o lens", through the Q.Menu I turn digital zoom to x4, exit Q.Menu, focus, enter Q.Menu, set "Digital Zoom" to Off, exit Q.Menu and finally, take a picture. Then...

Hello everyone I plan to do some video blogging on Youtube and wanted to know what you might consider to be a proper cam for it.  I currently own a Lumix G5 with the Olympus f1.8 45mm, and its not bad outside but certainly not wide enough nor detailed enough for indoor blog reviewing of products.  I would prefer something with direct line in mic ability so I can use the cam outside with a mic.  I dont need anything pro but I would like that nifty bokeh look to the backgrounds as well as the...

Hey all, Im new here, but not new to photography.  Im replacing my old Powershot G5 and I wanted something that works well for photos AND HD video.  Everything Ive been seeing here seems to point to the Sony A6000 as a very good camera for both stills and video. I shoot mostly non-moving subjects (but that can change!) and Im very interested in doing video, short films etc.  My budget is $500-600 USD and I want the most bang for my buck.  What would your suggestions be for this price...
