    From what i have seen, the default is to not use hardware acceleration. It is pushing the CPU pretty hard with that turned off.
  • I grew up in a Kodak family, and for a while we got our film for free. Fridge usually had a lot available in there, but I never got into it because it was "too easy" so to speak. It never had any...

  • I would suggest that the problem is not the camera, but a problem on whatever machine you are processing video on. A bad codec, bad software, etc. Try playing back the same clip in-camera, do you ...
  • I wholeheartedly agree with the thicker more rugged cases to contain better performance, but there may be less than 1% of people out there that have the vision capable of seeing 8K on a phone...

  • What was interesting is when I performed a dust test on the GH-2 while retiring it, the sensor itself was kind of "worn out". It no longer had a consistent grey tone across the sensor surface, it ...
  • GH2 never once needed a cleaning, for 8 years. I have now had to clean the G9 twice. I have used both with about the same frequency and lens changes.
  • Not so much scientific, but there are reasonable benefits to a metal enclosure: 1. Resistance to outside radio interference such as cell phones is the case itself. Otherwise EMI shielding would ...
  • My wife has a very pale complexion, and the GH-2 could seemingly see right through her skin! I could see quite a difference in skin tone on the camera preview and computer no matter the white ...
  • Since DFD is derived from the contrast character from a frame, they work under the same principals. They require light and a fairly consistent exposure to function. I am theorizing here, based on ...
  • I am willing to bet this is a big part of why Olympus works fine in these scenarios as phase-detect is more or less immune to these light sources. If the blinking of artificial lights has a dark ...
  • Unlikely, but possible: LED lighting and compact florescent lighting both flash at the rate of either AC mains, or the internal switching power supply. In noticed the G9 having some major struggles ...
  • I know, that drove me a little nuts when I realized it wasn't there. Its not like the camera doesn't have sensors that could support it. Perhaps Panasonic thought it is likely G9 users would be ...
  • If you put a custom prefix on the front, this no longer happens. I have a custom prefix as to keep my duplication checking from colliding with my older GH2 files with the same prefix. Only when ...
  • To keep competition from phones from overwhelming the market, it would be nice to have these add-ons: 1. Panasonic also adopt hand-held hi-res. 2. Auto-image stacking and alignment for night shots ...
  • HEAR HEAR! In addition I would like to set my camera up to be able to be a simple file sharing device to make image transfer simpler. It should show up on a home network just like a computer with ...
  • I would expect the difference you are witnessing is simply the trend that users of the mirrorless cameras will likely be the more experienced photographers along with new glass, higher resolution ...
  • Either will surpass your needs. You are going to have to look beyond what you list as requirements into what you may wish to do in the future and see if the camera can perform that. Example would ...
  • Thanks for sharing. This is also, I believe, created before the latest firmware release that will try to focus on birds improving the tracking even more. From what little BIF work I have found the ...
  • If you are invested in the m4/3 system at this point, it is hard to argue with the sub-$1K price selling of the G9. Apart from high ISO performance compared to larger sensor formats, it is an...

  • If this was available when I purchased my Panasonic G9, I would have been hard-pressed to not purchase it instead. The ISO performance of the sensor in this thing looks amazing.

    I still love the...
