I'm getting an error message on my GH1 that reads "Please turn off camera and turn on again" which I finally got rid of by removing the lens and screwing it back on. I feel like this might be the beginning of the end.  The strap connector has already broken and the card cover is sprung and I just feel like I'm going backwards.  Does anyone have a GH1 they love???  Can you take pictures indoors without using the flash?

I'm looking for a simple way to view my GH3 RAW images in Windows 7. My 1st choice is to use the Windows Explorer built into the operating system. Microsoft claims that all I need is the appropriate CODEC and then recommends their CODEC set. It lists the GH1 and GH2 but not the GH3 as supported. Panasonic doesn't offer any CODECs that I could find except for the GH1. I know third parties like Adobe and DXO have the ability built into their more elaborate products, but I'm just looking for the...

Okay so i'm wanting to film a jackass/stunt sort of film and i want a new camera to use seeing all i am working with is a goPro HD hero 2So far i have looked at the Sony A77, the sony handycams, the Cannon XA 10/25 and also the GH10/20I don't have alot of money so the best value for money would be great. Also, the ability to do slow motion shots would be pretty good plus being able to record for long times without having to charge would be great.If you have any other cameras you think would...

I'm also torn between GX7 and E-M1. I've been using Panny and like the form factor of GX7. One big lure of E-M1, though, is its faster C-AF with PDAF. But since I'm not going to shoot pro sports or motor sports, C-AF fast enough to track running kids will be good enough. Does GX7 have C-AF that is good enough to track running kids? By way of comparison, with my GH1, I have about 20-30% keeper rate on running kids at a soccer game.

http://www.spiderholster.com/black-widow-holster.html I've been using the same camera strap I used with my GH1 for many years but I'm finding the strap is a more awkward due to the GX7's smaller size.  I have the original 14-140 lens and even though this is not a compact lens it looks like the Black WIdow would be OK with it. --Birk Binnardwww.birkbinnard.com/photography;

I was planning to buy OMD but I ended up waiting a bit and now the new PEN is out. What is the pros and cons of the external view finder compared to GH1's built in view finder? I don't think I can live without the view finder. or should I wait for the next OMD? I take portraits, kids food and landscapes.

I've just read many threads on this digital video forum, with the wonderfully informative posts. An amazing forum. But the answer to my question eludes me. I'm a staff photographer shooting field ecology research, wilderness land management activities, and wildlife. The org now wants video as well as stills, but the problem is, nothing can be staged. I need to capture top quality stills and compelling video of the same decisive moments, cinema veritae of the field workers when something...

If anyone own either, can you tell me either the weight you put on the ball head, or the equipment put in it (so I can look up the weight)? Why I am asking: Have the later, and put a little over a pound load on it; rated load is 22 lbs.  Reviews on Amazon and B&H, are mixed.  Were the bad reviews from user error? Thinking mid-size DSLR, zoom lens, and collar; camera + lens ~ 6 lbs, plus the weight of the collar.

I configure the E-PL5 movie mode to M, manually select aperture and shutter speed, and the AF mode to AF-S.  However, when I shoot video (kids making a mess in the bath room) in low light using the Panasonic 20/1.7 lens, I seem to still see focusing "breathing," if that is the correct term for the lens to momentarily lose focus and refocuses.  I double checked the AF-mode and confirmed that it is AF-S.  Does anyone else notice this?  On GH1, once focus is locked, I usually switch the focus...
