A recent post originally concerning constant preview of EM5.2 at here had given rise to another question on the strange behavior of GX7. As per member Haslo's good information, I just realized that under M mode, if the shutter speed of GX7 would be anything above 1/1000", the Constant Preview (a function has to be activated by a fn key for the Dof effect, shutter speed effect and off respectively) as well as real time histogram would stay at the value of 1/1000", and it would not be...

Over the last 2 years or so I've been hiking and bicycle camping with a GX1, Oly 9/8 fisheye, Pana 20/1.7, and Sigma 60/2.8. At 700g or so I'm very happy with both weight of the kit and image quality. Although I always say I rather take some pictures I'm happy with than to be able to take lots of mediocre shots, the tele prime makes me long for something else. It often feels a little short and sometimes a little long, so I thought I could use a zoom. Thought long and hard about the new tiny...

Hello All, This is a question concerning SD Cards, Olympus firmware and non-Windows Operating Systems... I am the very lucky [and proud] owner of an OM-D EM-1 [and a GX1] and have just been trying to download some recent images from an SD card into my home network via my laptop. For this specific laptop, I have two hard drives, one being formatted with Windows 7, the other running an operating system called GNU/Linux, specifically, GNU/Linux Mint 17.1... [which, for those who may not know, is...

I recently purchased the Lumix LX100 and I would love some input to compare against my reaction. I already own a Lumix LX5 and a Lumix GX1 with the greatly improved LVF2. I was hoping to upgrade when I got the LX100. In many ways I prefer my GX1. So I am not an amateur, just naive about digital cameras. I chose the ones I own based on several things,mainly how it felt in my hands, traded off against a full frame DSLR type camera. I would like a camera capable of making a 20X24 print at 240...

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...

I have this lens and that body already as well as the Panasonic adapter. My question is about any setting up the lens on that body, if necessary. I know enough to go into the "no lens attached" mode in the set up, but is there an additional manual adjustment to make regarding the lens focal length? I am sure I read of that somewhere but I cannot find it. I have taken shots with that combination and the images are quite nice. Thanks, John

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...
