I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

Hello again to you all. After many months of study I spotted a very good (and price balanced) Flash-System-Set for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1. Now I have two "Yongnuo YN-560 - Mark III" Flashes and a couple of "Yongnuo RF-603 C" Triggers. The first problem that I found was that these triggers didn't works fine with GF1, so I had to modified one of them thanks to this precious DPpreview article (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/39536790). Now with the modified trigger linked on top of my...

Hello to everybody. I have a Panasonic GF1 but I miss the viewfinder in my old reflex. I tried the DMW-LVF1 but was terrible, today I discovered that exist the DMW-LVF2 that everebody loves. Checking in the web I found this page (http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/connect/gf1.html) that seems to indicate that is not full-compatible but I would like to ask to someone in this forum if it's true or if someone have different experiences of DMW-LVF2 and GF1. Thanks. G.

I just bought the Panasonic 12-35 mm f/2.8 lens to use on my GF1. I noticed that one of the GF1 firmware updates a few years ago included the ability to turn off the in-body stabilization of the GF1 when used with an earlier Panasonic zoom lens. Apparently this does not apply to the new 12-35 (which also has stabilization), as there is no "off" option in the camera. I assume I should turn off the stabilization in the lens, as I can't turn it off in the GF1. But if Panasonic decides to update...

I have used jpgs exclusively for several years for because I'm, for lack of a better word, lazy. I have attempted to use RAW a few years ago but the software I had was a bit complicated and slow. This was PhotoPlus X4. I have the time so there is no real excuse. I just don't want to spend hours at it, however. I have a suspicion that my other hobby, target shooting, is going to less than it used to be, so going back to photo editing should be a natural. What do any of you think of Corel Paint...

Hi, I have a GH1 body with these lenses: m43: Panny 14-140mm f/4-5.6, Panny 20mm f/1.7 FD: Elicar 35mm f/2.8, Canon 50mm f/1.8 Universal-to-FD: Soligor 90-210mm f/4 C-Mount: 24mm f/1.4. I'm thinking of picking up a smaller body to be used with the primes, especially the 20mm, so that I actually bring out the camera more often rather than anything else. I do not care about high ISO performance, the highest I ever go is ISO 400, usually ISO-100. Cost being an issue, I am thinking of picking up...

Long time (seems like over a decade) lurker but this is my first post.  Some years ago, when they first came out, I bought a Panasonic/Lumix GF1.  I LOVED that camera and my favorite set up was with an older Leica 90mm Summicron lens.   The problem I ran into was my eyesight which win;t what it used to be.  I'm 60-ish and grew up with viewfinders so I liked the electronic viewfinder -- except that it was not very good and I found it increasingly frustrating.  So my first question is whether...

Have an issue with my Lumix GF1 that I can't fix. For some reason when I use the Self timer it always takes 2 shots. Doesn't matter if its set for 2seconds or 10 seconds. How do I undo it?? Am sure I did something and am unable to undo it Thanks

I am looking for a used compact for carrying light on holidays & for when I don't want to take my DSLR gear with me. I don't know much about Panasonic gear, but like what I read in reviews about these 1, especially the GX1. I don't want new & would like interchangeable lenses, as the small primes are only a fraction of the size & weight of my canon gear. Users opinions on them would be very much appreciated. Also anyone got one for sale? PM me. Thanks. --lee uk.There are old pilots, &...

My favorite player in PC is Potplayer. It has good IQ and it can show multiple clips seamlessly like rendered video. I can customize keyboard and mouse for handy use. It has good picture control and all the settings could save as custom presets for different cameras. I do realtime corrections like levels, saturation, NR and sharpening in Potplayer. I have presets for all cameras which videos I watch ( 5D3, 550D, Nikon V1, GF1, GH2, GH3, RX100, Nex6). They all has own special "look". Real time...
