Hi everyone, I'm wondering if it is possible to remote control the Panasonic GF5 using a computer? The camera's timer is limited to 3 pictures and a maximum 60 seconds exposure for each picture. Is there any way to remote control the camera with a cable connected to the computer? (I do astrophotography and I can't sit outside all night). I don't see any remote shutter cables available for this camera. Thanks in advance for your help. Any thoughts will be appreciated.
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,...
Hey guys,I currently have a Panasonic FZ72 (which I've only had since April) but I'm feeling a bit limited by it. I wouldn't want to be without it but I'd quite like something in addition to it - which leads me to the GF6.I've done a fair bit of reading up about it but I'm still pretty new to the world of lenses and aperture!I'd like to know whether you think it's a good step up. I've always been put off DSLRs by the size/weight/cost and I don't think I'd end up using one much so the GF6...
Hey, A couple of months ago I switched from my Nikon D300s kit to a fantastic Olympus E-M10 kit. Unfortunately I had to bring in the E-M10 for repairs (front dial got squeaky and almost completely locked) and now I'm probably out-of-camera for 2 to 3 weeks. It's not that big of a deal (I'm not a pro) but still I was looking for a cheap (maybe 2nd hand) M4/3 body which I can use as a backup body, or a camera I can give to my kids without having to worry too much. :) After looking for some 2nd...
Hi all I'm after a little buying advice. I currently own a GF5 with Panasonic 25/1.4 as my go to lens. Thinking of upgrading to something that'll give me more control. Should be able to sell my current set up for about £450 and happy to add another £250. Wondering if it's worth the step up to a GX7/A6000/OMD-EM10. I'd probably stick with the kit lens before saving for a decent prime. I use my camera for standard holiday usage and taking shots of my kids both indoor and outdoor. Any help would...
My step daughter is quite keen on phone photography and as I have some spare lenses I suggested that we could pick her up a mft body to play with. I don't plan to spend above 100quid and would like something portable that I can give to my parents if she doesn't like it. Ideally Aperture and shutter control, reasonable JPEG engine. On ebay it seems like the GF5 and the epl1/epm1 are the main cameras in my price range but I can't find any good comparitors that aren't just spec...
I just got an E-PM2 and have been using a GF5 for about a year. I'm trying to figure how to copy a behavior I became accustomed to on the Panasonic. I shoot in P mode, though I mostly fiddle with the aperture, often keeping it as wide open as possible without overexposing. On my GF5 I could simply spin the dial on the back of the camera to widen the aperture. See the meter at the bottom of the screen here: That red area is where the camera would consider the photo to be overexposed — the...
I normally don't need a long lens except for the few times a year I attend soccer matches. In medium-to-large stadiums where I'm usually seated my trusty 20mm prime doesn't do much good for shots of the players and action. I assume I'll want something with 100-150mm at the long end (I'm typically seated 100-200 feet away). I'm looking for something I can pick up cheaply off ebay (or Amazon or elsewhere). I don't mind if it's old, or not as good as another model at the same focal length, or...
