Hi, I just bought a microSDXC card with 64GB for my GM1 camera, which replaces the dated 16GB SDXC card. Both are from Sandisk with the "Ultra" label. The older one states "up to 30MB/s", the new one provides "up to 80MB/s" and complies to the much faster UHS-I standard. Writing speed for the new card is around 50MB/s, way more than the read speed of the old card. Sadly the new card is considerably slower than the old card and I don't get why. Clearing the buffer after a burst of 6-7 photos...
In preparation for a potential purchase with the discounts coming up towards Black Friday, I'd like to canvass a little help with identifying the little differences between these two little cameras. I'm not talking about the obvious stuff such as the EVF and flash, but small things such as face detect AF for the GM1 vs. Eye detect AF on the GM5. I think the GM5 also has potentially faster AF due to 240hz refresh. What else is there? If I buy one of these, it will be as a second more portable...
I went into this review of the Panasonic GM1: http://www.oopoomoo.com/2014/03/real-life-review-panasonic-lumix-gm1-big-performance-in-a-tiny-package-but-at-what-price/ The GM1 was reviewed under extremely cold environment of -34 degrees stated in the review. This lead me to think about all the marketing and test videos about all the weather sealed cameras such as the OMD E-M1 and Nikon D4 and D7200, Pentax weather sealed bodies and WR lenses, and the Sony A7 series, boasting their rugged...
I changed from a GM1 to a GX8. On the GM1 I would shoot in burst mode (M-edium speed). On the GX8 i find the M burst speed too fast, but the Low burst speed too slow. First world problem I know. Why can't we pick our own burst speed? Or is this possible at all?I.e. select from a drop down, where you can select how many FPS you want to shoot (between 1 to 8).
Hi everyone When you engage electronic/silent shutter on the GM5, are you still able to select the full ISO range, particularly sensitivities above 3200 ISO? I'm looking to buy one, and this is really crucial for some of the work I do (classical concert pics). I know the GM1 allows it. The GX7, surprisingly, doesn't. Thanks a lot - Robin
Over the past few months, I have been enjoying my entry into Micro 4/3 with the GM1. I was looking for a suitably compact camera with good image quality, and this has ticked all the boxes and more. I have my basic zoom (the 12-32mm kit), my fast prime (Olympus 25mm f/1.8) and my toy (9mm body cap). Now I want to round out with a telephoto zoom. I was hoping to look for advice. I want to stick with Panasonic, to get OIS. I am debating between the 35-100 f/4-5.6, the 45-150 f/4-5.6 and the...
