I'm looking for a new camera for shooting at conferences, so I need something quiet (not to disturb the audience/speaker) and performing well in low-light conditions (the room is usually dimmed, requiring ISO ~1600-3200). Interchangeable lens is "a must have" and generally the more it feels like a DSLR, the better. I use DSLR Sony SLT-A57 for ~2 years, and it served me well, but the shutter sound gets more and more annoying while shooting in quiet rooms, and the low-light performance is...

I've been considering a GX7 for an upcoming wedding but I want to use some manual lenses I like via adapters. Does the GX7 silent shutter mode work in this case or does it revert to a mechanical shutter ?Thank.

Hi, I am currently a Lumix GF2 owner and am keen to upgrade however want an M43 camera that can film and continuos autofocus while filming similar to a camcorder.  The GX7 with it's 20MM (II) kit lens seems to do this very well. http://vimeo.com/74527984 The G6 and GH3 both seem to have impressive video features, however are a little larger than I would like. I also own a canon 550D so am really looking for something closer in size to my GF2. My lens of choice is a Panny 25MM F1.4, I'm...

Hello All!    I am going camping this weekend and will hike to  spot that has an excellent view of the city.  I am hoping to see several shows from all over the city at once.  I am unfamiliar with photographing fireworks, I would like to know the settings I should use on the GX7 to get great shots.  I would like camera as pre set up as possible.  ISO, aperature, shutter speed etc would be helpful.  I am assuming pany 25 1.4 lens but may use 14mm lens if I need to get wider. I would love to be...

Hi, I have a question about Face Detection AF on the GX7:  Does it have eye priority within that mode?  I know other manufacturers have it so that you can specify to focus on nearest eye, or even on the eyes themselves rather than just the face (which may end up focusing on the nose or cheek).  --Thanks,Markhttp://www.olwickphotography.com

Hi guys I just purchased off eBay a new black GX7 only to find out it was the pal version although the auction stated that it was NTSC. Messaged seller and they agreed to refund/return OR I keep the camera and they send me cleaning kit and mini tripod. I do not want the hassle of returning, but also wonder if the pal frame rate (50p/25p) gonna be a problem here in US? What kinda of drawback should I expect? (i know there will be flickering problem?) I took some videos with incandescent...

Have I got this right? In the circumstances above, I should: 1. below shutter speed of 1/400, use e-shutter to prevent shutter shake with the lightweight lens 2. above shutter speed of 1/400, use mechanical shutter: it's fast enough to ignore any shutter shake (I omit the very slow shutter speeds, as I'm unlikely to use this lens for them without a tripod) 3. turn the lens OIS switch OFF 4. I see some recommendations that I should also turn off the internal IS of the camera body, but from...

Very typical picture of mine. Wilderness in mountains are interesting, and this is from about 1000 meters above sea.Very typical equipment I use for those is a warm car at sea level and my FZ150 at full zoom.So, much, and even more zoom is always wanted.And like most, I guess, I often think of upgrading for better picture quality.Been thinking for a while on micro 4/3, - and now with the FZ1000 soon coming I had to think this over again.Please look at the sketch.Left is a best qual.

So i bought 4 Yongnuo YN560IIIs and a pair of their RF-603 Transceivers. I first tried using optical triggering with my Nissin Flash on camera, everything works fantastic. I can illuminate my entire living room at F2.8 and somewhere around 1/64 on each flash, which is just about what i was hoping for so i can freeze out any movement and get low ISO clear shots.  My question comes in with the RF-603 triggers. Perhaps i misunderstood their compatibility standards, but they don't seem to be...

I have to choose which camera system I will buy into.  I will shoot many club dance photos, meaning low light. Also on my "want" list is compact size, sharp portraits, 50fps video, autofocus under 200 milliseconds, and silent operation. Basically I am choosing between - Panasonic Lumix GX7 (Micro Four Thirds) where I can afford lensus such as the f1.7 20mm and maybe even the Noctricron f1.2 42.5mm - but I am a bit worried about buying into Micro Four Thirds at this time. - The Sony a7(r?)...
