So, why and when to use different anti-shock settings.    Why not just leave at 0 ? I have Pen F and leave it all the time at 0 And, why no anti-shock setting on newer Panny cameras?   Like GX7 forward.

Just downloaded the free Dx0 9 Pro Elite, starting to use it.  Like that it reads GX7 raw files, something PS CS5 can't (still have to DNG convert).  My question is how to use Dx0 to process files from GX7 and Rokinon 7.5 FE - it doesn't download a preset camera+lens optics module - how can I defish using Dx0?  Also, anyone compare Dx0 to CS5?  --RichTake many pictures - a few are keepers, the rest are are lessons.

Hi there, My GX7 has developed a very annoying fault with its rear wheel. Basically, it has an intermittent fault whereby turning it has either no effect at all or adjusts e.g. the exposure compensation in the wrong direction (e.g over instead of under).  I did return it to Panasonic and, after receiving it back, the problem appeared to be cured, but after a few months it has returned as bad as ever. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so has anyone found a way to cure it? I've...

Having bought the TZ100 as a reasonable quality, flexible zoom pocket camera, I've been disappointed that I can't get it to work with what's supposed to be the official WiFi "app" from Panasonic. I used to be able to use the Wifi app with my Android phone and my GX7, albeit with some difficulty getting them to talk to each other, and transfer photos away from my PC, but just cannot get the new camera (and Android 6.0 phone) to connect. Has anyone else encountered these problems, and...

Has anyone successfully used a Meike MK320 flash in TTL mode with a Panasonic G7 (not a GX7).  I can't seem to get decent TTL shots with it. I'm beginning to think that this flash doesn't work properly in TTL with the G7.   Any help is appreciated.

Attracted by the new IBIS (including the dual-IS opportunities with certain Lumix lenses) and (maybe) the new no-AA filter element, this old guy is about ready to move (on) from my GX7 to the GX85. My EVF question: I've not used or particularly needed the tilt feature of the GX7 EVF so the fixed GX85 EVF is not an issue, but I've read on some DPR forum post that the GX85's EVF is smaller than the GX7's. Has that been a problem for many others than than for the one post I read. It does not...

I've had my new toy, the GX85 about a week now and I've run into a problem with the focus ID. On other Lumix models, GX7, GX8 etc. when you press the shutter button halfway down a green "button" appears on the upper right of the screen indicating focus being reached. Not so with my GX85. The button appears as I've pushed the shutter button, too late to confirm focus. I just checked my GX8 and went through all the focusing things on the menu to correlate them but no change. The GX8 does...

I recently bought a GX7 and like much about it, but although the colours seem better than the GH2 I once had (as has often been said), I find that when photographing landscapes in the North of England, where greens and browns predominate, I'm having to adjust the white balance quite often in changing light.  I would be interested to hear whether the GX8 (or 80/85) AWB is any better at coping with these kinds of conditions?  I realise you can set two custom white balance options, which helps,...

I plan, probably, to trade in my GX7 on a GX85, with a touch a GAS and for the improved IBIS as much as anything (I'm an oldster who needs whatever camera-holding help I can get in non-tripod situations). I know the GX85 does not ship with a battery charger; the Panasonic expectation, apparently, is that one would prefer charging the battery in camera, saving a bit of gear to carry around, and perhaps because it saves Panasonic an obvious cost for the charger, which had always been provided...

i shot Nikon for around 40 years and then went with LUMIX, first with GF-1 later with G3 and now with GX7.  I shoot street.  I needed lighter system so moved to m 4/3.  I now often shoot with only the 20mm Panasonic lens.  What will the X100t give me that will add to the fun of photography?  www.photosbypike.com www.ncstreetphotographer.co Type of photos I take
