Hi, Im going to Africa in a couple of months and am looking for a second camera body for the trip. I currently have a GX1 with 14mm, 20mm and 45mm primes. I am going to buy the pany 100-300mm for wildlife safari shots. Im looking for the best bang for your buck camera body. I have seen new G3 camera bodies on ebay for $300 which looked appealing. It would be useful to have a viewfinder for the telezoom im getting. Im happy to look at second hand cameras. I know the G3 is quite old now, should...

When i was trying to take photos on a tripod during the night i was using a panny wide angle and a nikon lens, but the camera would not let me take pictures with the panny lens but instead showed a red camera in the top right and some red borders. Using the settings i was going to use with the wide angle it would have been properly exposed. So what is the way of letting me take a picture with no limit on a panny gx1?

Hi, all, I recently added an E-M1 to go with my GX1.  I updated the firmware to 1.4 as soon as I got it.  This is the first time I've used the 5-axis in-body stabilization (and wow, is it ever effective).  I was prepared for some humming/etc noise that I'd read about, but I have to say, I didn't notice any noise from it with any of my normal m4/3 lenses. Then, yesterday, I put a cheapo fixed-aperture manual-focus 500mm mirror lens on the camera and configured the focal length to 500mm in the...

To whom that could give advice, I own a GX1, and just recently acquired the GM1, hence I now have two distinct battery sets, DMW-BLD10E for GX1, and DMW-BLH7E for GM1; As a result I inherited two distinct battery charger sets, DE-A94 for GX1, and DE-A98 for GM1 I need expert opinion, my question is, can I safely use the larger DE-A94 (GX1) battery charger with the smaller DMW-BLD10E (GM1) battery if I am able to jimmy it into place in the large battery charger slot, and ensure a tight...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am thinking of getting purchasing of these panasonic bodies. I will mostly be using the 12-32mm lens and maybe get a 45mm or 75mm olympus lens at some point. Here in UK, the cheapest I can get a GX1 body for about £170 or a GM1 body for about £290. Is GM1 worth the extra money if we dont count the smaller physical size? GX7 is out of consideration due to higher price range. I was wondering if anyone who has experience with these two bodies can help. Also...

Hello, I'm having a senior moment with my GX1 and EVF. :( I'm so use to using touch on back LCD to AF, that I can't remember how to move the AF point using the rear dial. Where in the menu do I find /change to set camera for rear dial control of AF target? Or should I just let the camera auto AF? The reason I ask is I will be going on a big boat Alaska cruise this month, and will be taking a small boat whale watching excursion.  I  want to shoot the sea life using EVF and rear dial to change...

My girlfriend and I were away recently and wandered into a Lomography store in Antwerp, Belgium. She'd heard the term "lomography", but didn't know what it was, nor had she heard of Lomo, Holga or any of the toy lenses that are out there. She'd been having a lot of fun shooting with our GX1 and was really intrigued by the idea of dirt cheap lenses and crappy image quality. ;-) The funny thing was, she really liked the "accidental" shots we found every time I transferred the days' shots to my...

Hello, Thinking of adding the Oly 45mm f/1.8 to my lens collection. For small travel kit: 7-14, 25PL, and Oly 45(?). But concerned I might not get sharp pictures since my Panny GX1 does not have IBIS. Usually follow the rule of 1/focal length for minimum shutter speed or shot on iA/P modes. Any caveats, like dreaded shutter shock, from using this lens on the GX1? Have any examples of pics taken with lens on Panny non-IBIS camera?   Especially typical travel pics. And, thanks for advice.

I've been using my GX1 for a while now, and up to this point have been just using the lcd screen for composing pictures.  I'm interested in having a camera with viewfinder as I think it will help improve my compositions.  What are your thoughts on buying a LVF2 for $150 vs selling/giving away my current gear and upgrading to something like the GX7 or the OMD-EM5?

I have micro 4/3 body with m. zuiko 14-42mm II r and i am thinking of expanding my gear with oly 45mm and 17mm f1.8 so i checked some site reviews and some user reviews. Also i was bored and i decided to compare my 14-42 to canon's 17-55mm f2.8 and to my surprise my lens had slightly less distortion, a lot less vignetting and in terms of resolution according to photozone my oly is on par and actually better in some cases. The only thing that the canon lens did better was control of CA. I find...
