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...

I have a GH3 that I like very much. My backup is a G5 that I like but not as much. It gets clogged when I do repeated fast shots which I do regularly. It is good but not as good in image quality as the GH3. I am considering changing out my G5 and making my GH3 my back up. The GH4 is interesting but truthfully I rarely take video and it seems to me that it is weighted toward video. All of my lenses are Panasonic and I have quite a few. I'm thinking of a EM-1 but am wondering if it can handle...

I'm having trouble understanding the Controls description in the EM1 review. It seems that there's just two dials, and in DPR's review, one is marked "Primary Exposure Parameter" and the other "Exposure Compensation". Unfortunately, most DPR reviewers are A or S shooters and never really explain well the features for an M shooter (in all their reviews). My questions are, in M-mode: Which defaults to A and which to S? [I prefer S nearest me and A on the grip] Is it possible to customize which...

Hello, Is anyone using or has been using the G5 at a wedding? Can you share you experience with this camera? How is it doing with focusing in low ight? I'm thinking of getting it as my second camera, with the E-M5 being my main camera. --Inkheart

So, I finally purchased an m4/3 system, the oh-so-entry level G5, and have spent the last few months playing with the kit lens and adding to my previously modest collection of Hexanon lenses that I had from my old 35mm T4.Currently I'm sitting on a pile of FF primes from a 21mm f4, to a 200mm 3.5, and most everything in between(currently in negotiations for a 57mm f1.2 excited). Shockingly, none of this has cost any real money yet. But as fun as this legacy MF nonsense is, it really doesn't...

I currently have a Lumix G5 which my wife gave to me last year for my 60th bday present. It came with the two kit lenses, the 14-42 and 45-150. I do mainly family and casual picture taking, vacations etc and on occasion I do connect the G5 body to my telescope (only a few pictures of the moon so far. I had considered purchasing a GH3 body, but decided it is more camera than I need at least for the forseeable future. It seems the G6 with the 14-42 kit lens is starting to drop a little in...

Let me preface this question by saying that for a few reason, the main being medical, that using a Wacom tablet/stylus pen is not an option for me (so please don't insist that's the way to go and please stick to mouse recommendations). My current Dell mouse that came with my computer stopped working properly after several years, and I need to buy a new mouse with Photoshop/Lightroom editing in mind. I've read that a gaming mouse is a good option and was looking at the Logitech G400s or G500s...

I have been thinking that a resolution chart would be handy thing to have. The I saw the prices!  I can buy a new G5 body or a lens for less money than most of these charts. Does anyone have any pointers on how to get a reasonable resolution chart for less? I have a Pixma Pro-100, I'm wondering if I can print a resolution chart somehow. --Eric

Hi, this is my first post on DP Review so treat me gently please! I have just purchased my first MFT camera, a Lumix G5, having moved up from a Lumix LX5. I have made some standard initial camera settings but am finding that with Photo Style on STD, Colour Space set to S RGB and EV to Zero the image colours are much paler than the equivalent image on my LX5. They appear over exposed/washed out. I am thus slightly disappointed with the results. I suppose I would class myself as a keen beginner...
