I just picked up a Panasonic GM5.  Really enjoying this little cam so far, but I am having some trouble customizing it similar to my previous Pana cameras. On my G5, I have set the Fn1 button (AF/AE Lock) to initiate AF lock, and the shutter button to only lock exposure. To do this, I had to set three menu items in the "custom rec" menu: - "AF/AE Lock" to "AF"- "AF/AE Lock Hold" to "Off", and- "Shutter AF" to "Off" This works on the G5.  But I can't figure out how to accomplish the same thing...

I shoot at a maximum of ISO 800 , mostly with primes and an in my bag 14-140 zoom. I currently use the Olympus M5, even with a non-OEM grip I do not enjoy the handling of this camera. Also the ridiculous design of the eye cup guarantees it will be knocked off the camera in normal use. The EVF and IQ are outstanding, however the ergonomics just leaves me cold. I like the size and ergonomics of both the GH3 and G5/G6 models . I realize I will lose IBIS and high ISO quality  as well as weather...

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...

Hello, Yesterday i was trying out my new second-hand G5 with my Panasonic 45-175mm powerzoom. It was in burst-mode H or M and the electronic shutter was used.  There is a blurry non-focused band over the photo about a quarter up from the bottom. Especially on the tree. below and up from the band it is focused but the band is not. What is this and how to avoid it ? Henk

I apologize in advance for how base my question is. I love my camera, but find the manual and settings bewildering at times.My question is how to get the Function Lever to work as a zoom function.  I had the camera working in that way previously, but when it came back from a repair it was unset and I can't get it back for the life of me.Previously, when shifting the Function Lever, the screen would show the setting going from 1-2, 2-3, 3-4. Each change would slighty enlarge/zoom the picture....

Which will provide me with the best Video quality, and which will provide me with the best picture quality? Should I go the extra money for a D5200?

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
