Has anyone else had the following issue? This has happened to me with both a Panasonic GX7 and LX100 using the built-in time-lapse feature. I set the camera for 250 frames @ 1 second interval and the camera runs through the operation, counting down from 250 to zero as it goes. I can review the frames on the card (though because of the way the cameras display time-lapse frames, it's hard to check the number of frames). On checking the card on my computer at home, I find there are only about...

I have the em5 and love it.  However, it doesn't do something that seems rather simple to me.  If the evf/screen is set to auto, then when in playback the evf cannot be used.  The review is only on the rear screen.  All other cameras that I am familiar with (nex 7, fuji x-t1, and the gx7) allow you to go back and forth between the evf and rear screen when in review mode. Does the em5 ii behaves in the same manner?  Most folks don't seem to mind this, but I do.  I simply want to be able to...

There are some interesteing results shared by Rob here http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3737584 It seems buying a faster card does not always benefit with the GX7. I was looking at buying the Extreme Plus indicated to perform better than the Extreme Pro. Unfortunately in country I am not able to find many good options to buy the Extreme Plus. Does anyone have recommendations for a better/ faster card? I prefer 32 GB.  Also, does it make a difference if I go for micro SD card with...

Hello, Looking for a new camera as an upgrade to my GX1 i.e. better low light/high ISO performance, silent shutter feature, and decent video for short travel memory clips. Camera used mostly for travel i.e. cruises, walking tours, family events. Enjoy good IQ in a small travel kit. Hence my decision a few years back to go with MFT. So, I was on the B & H Photo website today, and noticed the GX7 is discontinued. Selling @ $700 with 14-42II kit lens. Is the GX7 still a good value for that...

I bought a Nodal Ninja 3 panoramic head to make panorama's. The plate with the nn3 is rather wide and is blocking the battery compartment on the g6. The plate is difficult to remove from the camera and from the pano head. Now i see the tripod mount on the GX7 is a little much further from the battery compartment than on other mft camera's. Can a gx7 owner measure the distance from the center of the tripod mount to the screw next to the battery compartment ? I am guessing the battery door can...

Confusing info i got from from DXO by maching the Nocticron 42.5 lens to both bodies. Looks, to have this lens on the GM5 (GM1) the lens sharpness is 12MP, this is double compare to the GX7 6MP http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Panasonic/Panasonic-Leica-DG-Nocticron-42-5mm-F12-ASPH-mounted-on-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GM1__920 http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Panasonic/Panasonic-Leica-DG-Nocticron-42-5mm-F12-ASPH-mounted-on-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GX7__901 Lenses performing so much differently on the almost...

I mostly switch between M-mode and the movie mode. For some reason, whenever I change settings in one mode it is kept for the other. Not so with P, A or S mode. They "stick". I like to keep a shutter speed of 50 when shooting movies at 24p, but when I take photos in M-mode I need to adapt. So I'm constantly re-adjusting stuff that should stay sticky. Is any of what I'm writing making sense? My question is: is that just the way it is or is there some hidden switch I need to toggle to separate...

Thinking of upgrading from Panny GX7.  One great feature of the GX7 is sensor crop extended zoom, which more than doubles the zoom (in video) with zero change in IQ.  In extended zoom mode, the 2mp video simply uses only the central portion of the 16mp sensor. Does anyone know if the EM5 Mark II has this capability?

Hi there, I have a relatively newly acquired Panasonic GX7 and am getting to grips with it - so far I'm quite happy with it, but by no means fondling it like I still do my EP1! Anyway, I've noticed that in still picture playback, when you zoom in to your picture, the resolution seems really low. I'm trying to check sharpness (ie. if I've focused correctly) and finding that this low res. doesn't allow me to do so. Any ideas?Thanks.
