I haven’t seen anything that says what “RGB + IR photometry sensor of new 150000 pixel” is. Could RGB + IR photometry sensor mean that some of the pixels are reading IR light to reduce luminescence noise in very low light? In astrophotography we remove the filters from our cameras so that they can see UV and IR light. Then we put very specific filters back on which allow us to just see the light we want. I have several modified cameras that I have also tested in daylight. The data(UV and IR...

I have the GH4 and the 35-100mm F2.8 already. I also have the 25mm F1.4 lens and the 14mm F2.5 lens. However, I shoot mostly video and so I really need image stabilization even with the wider angles. I had considered buying the 12-35mm F2.8 lens but now the LX100 is giving me pause. Its multi-aspect ratio sensor will give me a wider field of view in the 16:9 video mode. It will also give me a more compact wide to medium solution. In fact I could fit the GH4, 35-100mm, 25mm F1.4, and the LX100...

Hello guys. I am very near to buying an used Panasonic GH2 (for very cheap), but I didn't do any research about other DSLR / DSLM, I just heard about Panasonic GH2 and I was quickly impressed. What is actually the best DSLR / DSLM that I could buy used (Ebay, Amazon...) for up to 450€? It can be a decent video DSLR that gets easily hacked to become a beast (like GH2), or just amazing video camera from out of the box. It is also very important that it has 25 fps on 1920 x 1080. I'm not...

Although I didn't do any "scientific" experiment for the question I'm about to ask, I really believe that I get different results on my GH2 when shooting with Lumix lenses (like 14-140) versus wide angle Rokinon 7.5 For example, an average city scene in the middle of the day. The Lumix lens, for whatever reason, doesn't seem to give as much latitude in post when I try to recover the blue sky and get the shadows up. On the other hand, when I shoot with Rokinon 7.5, it seems much easier to make...

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...

Hi everyone, Complete noob here, so apologies in advance! Had my sights set on a Canon EOS M for the past two weeks, then randomly bought a GH2 instead at a cheaper price!! So impressed with it so far! Just a quick question for now to find out if anyone has used the GH2 in conjunction with a Flyboy 3? I am on a fairly tight budget but require some manner of stabilization for outside work, so it came down to the Flyboy 3 or a second hand Flycam Nano? (Flyboy - £34 / Nano - £50'ish). Would...

I have been using a Panasonic LX7 for two years to record marching band competitions and color guard competitions. I typically shoot full wide (24 mm 35 equiv.) and wide open (f1.4 at widest) for marching band competitions, at least after dark and whatever ISO makes it work. For color guard competitions, which are in high school gyms typically, the same settings. So, all things being equal - wider is better, faster is better, less expense would be nice. Think more in terms of journalistic as...

I'm looking at getting a flash to work with my GH2. I have an old Sunpack flash that I'd consider using but the safe-synch adaptor that I'd need to use with it seems to be the better part of a new flash... and with the right new flash I could get TTL. The Panasonic and Olympus flashes are more than I want to spend so I'm wondering about these 3rd party brands that I'm seeing that seem to be made for m4/3 and are very attractively priced. What I'm wanting is something that I can use with full...

I received my new GH4 today. I used the Service Menu (same as on GH2 and GH3) to check history. The result was  27 power cycles and 34 shutter actuations. 34 shutter actuations (well, really 33 since I had to get an image on the SD card to use the service menu) seems low for someone using the camera and then deciding to return it. And so far I seen nothing wrong with this unit. Have any of you with a GH4 done a similar check? And otherwise, what are your thoughts? --Phil

While I am struggling with selling my OM-D E-M5, I don't really know how to build up my m43 kit, and would like to ask for your opinion. Right now I have a Panasonic GF2 which was my first, beloved m43 gear, and I bought it again after I found out that I can't live with the E-M5. However, I would like to have a Panasonic body which is more up to date than my slightly restricted GF2. I saw that used GH2 is a bargain nowdays, but I am also tempted to the new GX7, which is obviously much more...
