Next week I will be doing a cycle ride in a forest well known for it sightseeing, history and activities. Hence why I'm doing a cycle ride with some family members.  My first intinct is to take the GM1 with me because it designed for traveling light. I would also take both the 12-32mm and the 45-150mm. Partly because they are compact aswell but also because I wouldn't care as much if they get damage simply I don't use them much.  This got me thinking because the GH3 is my spare primary...

Hi, I own a Lumix 12-32mm kit and I use with my GF1. I found that the is a visually significant distortion at 12mm. My question is: a. Is this distortion corrected internally in the Lumix cameras like GM1 and GM5? b. If (a) is true then is there a firmware upgrade on GF1 to correct this distortion? I suspect     not. Any one can answer question (a) I would appreciate it? Thanks in advance.

Nowadays even the smallest camera is capable of so much, it's hard to make the decision on which camera to buy or which camera to keep because they are all so good! I currently have an EM1 for sports and wild life and an EP5 for everyday light weight general purpose use. My wife has a GM1 so we can share lenses with each other. Now that my wife got the new fancy iPhone 6, she pretty much left the GM1 in the dry cabinet ever since. She said I could use it and I did, a lot, because it's so...

Is it possible to set shooter speed for longer then 1s in Panasonic GM1? In the M mode the longest SS set I found is just 1 second.

Is there a way to tether an E-M1 or GH-4 to an iMac or Macbook Pro so I can use the screen to see the changes (live) that I'm making to aperture and shutter settings....maybe iso as well....maybe other parameters?  Seems this would be a great way to learn how each of these settings have an effect on the possible picture or scene instead of having to take hundreds of images then compare them side by side.  Hope I'm clear in what I'd like to accomplish.  Essentially the computer screen becomes...

It's more or less spring and any day now the ground will thaw and the snow will melt.  Some of the birds are back and one or two things are flowering. Virtually all of my shooting is done outdoors and pretty much in bright light unless I'm in the woods.  I shoot insects, birds, fish (in the water), landscapes, flowers, mushrooms...getting the idea?  I'd like to pick up a medium zoom for my E-M1 and I was leaning towards the 40-150 2.8 but now I'm wondering of the 14-150 II (4.0) should be an...

I have the E-M1 and GX7 and GM1 cameras. I'm thinking of buying some 4/3 glass, for example the Zuiko 50mm F2 Macro. One can buy the really expensive Olympus MMF-3 adapter, or the much cheaper Panasonic version DMW-MA1. Does the choice of adapter affect the autofocus behavior on the E-M1? Is anyone here using the DMW-MA1 with the E-M1, how well does it work? (I realize the MMF-3 is "splashproof", and the others not) --EricWhen the light is gone, the picture is gone ....

I hope to add an Olympus 40-150 f/2.8  to my E-M1 kit in April.  I have firmware ver 2.2 installed on the camera now.  Will this automatically affect the 40-150 lens or do I need to reinstall the firmware (or ver 3.0) with the new lens attached to get the added functions on this lens?

I love this gem of a camera, it captures stunning images. I use the camera in A mode with auto-ISO and keep an eye on my Shutter speed and ISO. My favorite way to use the camera in this setup is to use the touch screen feature that allows me to AF and fire the Shutter almost instantaneously. My problem is that whenever I turn off the camera and turn it back on it defaults to touch AF only. Do any of you know a way around this setting? I would love it if I could have the touch screen AF and...

Before you ask, YES I've read January's article "The myth of the upgrade path" I've had the GM1 for a couple months now and have a few questions and looking for opinions on upgrading the camera. I already own the 12-32 lens kit that came with the camera, as well as invested in two other lenses: 20mm 1.7 and the 45mm Oly. The reason I’m even considering this is because I find the lack of hot shoe limiting (the built in flash is useless), some blur when shooting in continuous mode with moving...
