I am trying to plug an external recorder into the G6, A Tascam DR-60. The recorder has a audio to camera out. It works on my 5Dmk2, but not on the G6. The headphone output does work on the G6. There is a special mic selection in the menu, but not highlighted. Any suggestions. I hate to lose the headphone jack. --Toby Armstrong

I've read the manual but can't figure out how to use the function lever for digital zoom when recording video on my new Panasonic Lumix G6. Anyone know how to do this? I have set the following: [Custom]->[Function Lever]->[ZOOM] [Rec]->[Ex. Tele Conv]->[ZOOM] [Motion Picture]->[Ex. Tele Conv.]->[tried ON and OFF] I don't have a power zoom lens, but the lever should still control digital zoom, up to 2.4x for FullHD video without loss of quality. But for me the lever just does nothing. With...

Hi Can anyone give me their thoughts on G6 video. Is it accessible for relative newcomers, and what's the learning curve like? May be using for travel video amongst other things. Thanks!

Hello Just looking for some clarity as I'm going in circles considering my current alternatives. I own an Olympus OMD EM5 but am looking for a camera predominantly for video use. Non-professional but good quality. As well as the kit Oly12-50mm lens I have the 45mm and 17mm f1.8 lenses. I need a camera that is not too steep a learning curve for a relative newbie but that can still produce nice cinematic images. I'm traveling to Sri Lanka later in the year so my mind is partly on something that...

On a Panasonic G6. Okay so I don't know if I changed some setting randomly but I used to be able to access the MF Assist via the left cursor button, the AF mode button. Now that button just opens up the AF Mode menu where I can select from Face Detection, AF Tracking, 23 point, single, and pin. The only time I can get the AF Mode button to work is by changing the focus to completely manual, or if I hold down FN2 + mess with the focus ring on the lens. FN2+Focus Assist button opens up the...

The question is really the beginner's one. I am looking for a decent camera to upgrade my compact/smartphone experience. With compact cameras I've had until now (A-series Canon PowerShot), I was mainly limited by low light performance, low dynamic range, large depth of focus and small zoom range. I thought switching to a system camera would be a good step forward, and have converged to Panasonic Lumix G6 so far. I like its ergonomics and it's an MFT one, so the lenses should not be too...

Hi everyone,I would like to go up from the compacts in image quality and ability to get more interesting shots, and I seem to converge to MFT family of cameras due to smaller/lighter lenses and cameras and good video. I am mostly shooting while travelling, without a tripod, so image stabilization seems to me to be important. And I am a bit puzzled with this dilemma: MFT is praised for the wide selection of lenses from Panasonic, Olympus and other suppliers. However, if I go for a Panasonic...
