I do YouTube tech videos which are generally usually based inside, and I decided that I would upgrade to a new camera. What is the best camera that I can find used or refurbished (somewhere) for $200-$275? Here's a list that I made of cameras that I would be able to get for that much used. These are all either Compact SLRs or Full size DSLRs, because I feel as if Dslr's sort of have more "features" and "Customization" with ebing able to shoot in raw, and interchangeable lenses and what not,...

Does anyone have experience using a Dicapac bag with the GF3 and the Panasonic 14mm lens? The WP-ONE is much less expensive ($13) than the WP610 ($37) I see listed as the proper bag in some locations. But I also see the Dicapac site listing the WP-S3 ($68) as the proper bag... I would totally be willing to use the Olympus 15/f8 BCL if it meant I could just use the much cheaper WP-ONE. (Planning to take the camera canoeing, would prefer something more substantial than a ziploc bag--just in...

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...

Hi Folks: I want to upgrade from P&S. I saw these 3 cameras on sale (Boxing Day). 1) Panasonic DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ($299 Cdn)                                     2) Panasonic DMC-GF5 with G Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 Standard zoom ($299 Cdn)                   3) Sony NEX-5R with 18-55mm Lens ($399 Cdn) I like the GF5 but is the GF3 with the X PZ lens a better deal? Sony 5R at $399 is also very tempting. Any suggestion is appreciated. Fumanchu

Hi All: I am a novice and I have a PS camera Fuji f31. I saw Boxing day sale for Panasonic Lumix mirrorless camera. 1) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 with G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6                                            2) Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 with LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Both cost $299 Cdn. I read a lot of reviews and find the GF5 a slight improvement over the GF3. However, the GF3 comes with the PZ lens (heard it is quirky, though recent Amazon buyers seem to find it ok). Please...

After recently upgrading from my trusty GF3 to a G6 I quite fancy trying to create some HDR movies with it. Now I know it has an HDR mode and an in built intervalometer but these don't work together. What I need is some way to fire off x shots over a period of time but in bursts as the G6 needs you to either press the shutter button for each bracketed shot or keep your finger on it while it take all the exposures in your bracketed series.  So the question is, can I do this, or will I have to...

I just bought a GF3+lens bundle last Friday and was surprised to see that there was no cap in the box other than the objective lens cap. :( Does Panasonic ever include body and lens mount caps with bundled cameras? Thinking of that, I am quite sure that there was no body cap included either with the GH2 bundle I bought years ago, as I have never recalled owning any m4/3 body cap. Lens mount cap, I was not as sure as I have bought adapters and lenses over the years and it may have come with...

Hi! I bought Panasonic 45-175, have updated firmware and now I investigate the OIS issue and its limitations. These shots were made with GF3 at 175 mm, 1/400-1/640, camera was handled. I have two blurry and tho sharp images. I know that the OIS issue can make image doubling and I saw many examples in the Internet and some examples in my photos at ~1/160. But here exposure is lower. So the question is: Can you determine what is the cause of blurring on 2 of 4 photos? Wrong autofocus, my hand...

I've been wanting something more than the point and shoots for sometime.  Years ago I had a decent 35mm camera and really missed the versatility of it. I just couldn't justify the price of a full size camera like the Nikon, Cannon, etc. Especially with the costs of the lenses. For the last few years I've had a Panasonic FZ-18. It was a decent enough camera but never really got me excited about using it much. One day I was browsing on Amazon and they had the Panasonic GF3 on sale. I did a...
