Hello, All, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced what might be termed lateral jumps when shooting video (panning) with the FZ300. I just got the camera and so far it's mostly good.  4K video is very clean and sharp whether on a 17" computer monitor or a 55" 4K TV. The 5-axis stabilization is outstanding; I shot a full minute of hand-held AVCHD 60p video (ocean waves) at about 300mm zoom, keeping the camera aimed at one spot, and you would think it was done with a tripod. Rock-steady. Also...

Hi, I am looking for a versatile fast prime lens that compliments or even replaces my 14-42mm. I have shortlisted two: Olympics 25mm f1.8 and Panasonic 42.5mm F1.7. These two are under $300 right now and I do not want to spend more. Now, I would like to shoot everything from indoor family pictures, wedding photography (potraits + family and groups) as well as landscape. Which of the two lenses above will be better for me if I also keep (or leave) my 14-42 kit zoom?

Can anyone help me with this? In have recently purchased the flash to go with my GX8.  As it doesn't have and on-board flash I have also purchased a Hahnel remote/trigger.  A couple of questions have arisen. Whether the flash is on or off the camera I cannot access the "firing mode" on the flash menu as it is greyed out.  The manual indicates that I should be able to access it (I use Aperture Priority mode).  I've changed the modes on the flash but it makes no difference. Should the...

I've been using GX7 for nearly two years, mainly used for street photography, I really enjoyed the focus speed, the silent shutter, and the tilty EVF. Had made lots of photos I like. However, it is not without issues, they are subjective, but I believe I'm not biased :-) 1. E-Shutter While e-shutter is silent and good for street photography, it has limitations such like rolling effect and high ISO banding. 2. Shutter Shock I didn't know this before, even when I saw discussions on this...

I was not using my GX7 for some 2 weeks or more. Today I took it off the bag and turned on. Nothing happened. I opened the battery compartment - no battery. I put in the battery and turned it on again - bingo! it started no problem. Then I begun browsing menus and when I entered the "photo style" menu GX7 went crazy, it was changing the options in turn: vivid, natural, monochrome.... without cease. When I touched cursor buttons, very lightly, no any press, just light touch, it was going...

My two-year-old Panasonic GX-7 has just started having a discoloration on its EVF. It doesn't affect the captured images or the display on the back of the camera. The problem is more visible the less light there is. This picture was taken with the lens cap on, which makes it most visible. In daylight it's barely visible, in low light it's annoying. I think it will probably be expensive to fix and I'm wondering if it's worth it. Has anybody else seen this? What could have caused it? Any advice...

Hi, I've had my DMC GX7 for a year now and have had no complaints about it and it's been working well. Today however I went to turn it on and it is completely dead. Thinking it was the battery, I replaced it with a fully charged battery and it's still dead!! Any clues? Thanks.

Hello everybody,The topic "GX8 shuttershock" has nearly been beaten to death by now. However, to decide if it would be a problem for me, I would like to get an impression from those who have used the GX7 and the GX8: Is shuttershock with the GX8 worse than with the GX7?I have the GX7 and - without claiming to never suffer from shuttershock - I found that user-based problems regularly outdo those from shuttershock. So, if the GX8 is not worse I would be fine with it. E-shutter is often no...

Hello, I was wondering what can be expected in terms of sensor technology for the upcoming EM1 Mark II. Why I'm asking? I have a semi-professional practice of photography. I used to have two systems but last year sold all my Pentax equipment and bought a 12-40 and a GX7 because I didn't want to stay in a sinking boat (the K1 has been announced since then, so maybe I was wrong but that's another story). Now I have quite a few lenses but no camera body I really feel comfortable with in terms of...

Hi; I'm new here; I've recently substancially upgraded my digital photography kit, moving from a 9-year old samsung L73 to a new Panasonic GX7, with the 14-42mm zoom (I'd looked at DSLRs, but the general concept always feels like a bit of a bodge, so I went mirrorless). In the intervening time, I've been getting into photography via the 35mm route; I'd inherited an old Praktica BC1, along with a few lenses; a 28mm, a 20mm, and a zoom; I picked up a 50mm lens too. Since picking up the new...
