  • It would be tedious, but you might want to go through the entire menu system and note all your settings. That way, if this happens again you can check to see if anything's been changed.
  • I was going to suggest a FZ1000. By the time you buy a M43 camera plus a second lens for telephoto, you'll spend more than a new FZ2000 for the same functionality, except with the M43 you'll be ...
  • Replied in External Mic
    For your purposes, I would go with the internal mic that comes with the camera. When you're trying to capture distant audio, I'd use a shotgun mic. Shotgun mics have a narrower pickup pattern, ...
  • Personal preference here, but I think a head-on flash ruins a picture. You get flat lighting with no shadows, other than the shadows behind the objects being photographed. Consider hooking up a ...
  • The 3 year, drops and spills coverage from Square Trade is transferrable...
  • On the roof mount... as a DIY-er, I'd get a roof rack for skis (or whatever), mount a board on it that extends a bit past the edge of the roof, drill a hole in the end of the board and drop the ...
  • You might consider a GoPro style camera. They generally have good image stabilization and, because they're wide angle, the focus is fixed, and the exposure is automatic. You'd want to verify that ...
  • Manfrotto makes a wired zoom controller compatible with LANC and Panasonic (MVR901ECPL). Besides the variable zoom rocker, on/off switch and record/stop switch, it has a switch to go between LANC ...
  • I've been using Premiere Pro for a few months now and I haven't noticed these pop up windows. I think the OP has a valid point. People considering moving to Pinnacle software need to know what ...
  • It's heavy, built like a tank. The release plate has a locking pin you have to depress to release the camera. It was killing my old-man hands so I removed it and now rely on the friction lock you ...
  • If you're handy with small tools, here's a solution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poWVeLiSV3c&t=193s If you're out in the desert shooting bugs on the ground, consider getting one of those hats ...
  • I would encourage you to send a link to this thread to someone at Panasonic. They generally respond quicker when they know the world is watching. The problem with these big corporations is that ...
  • Well... I'm no techie, but the new $3,100 Panasonic HC-X1 prosumer camcorder has a one-inch sensor at 9 megapixels, which, apparently, is all you need for 4k. The benefit of 9 megapixels is better ...
  • Replied in Canon XC10?
    I forgot to mention in my earlier post - if you want to rely on autofocus rather than manual focus or touch focus, you'd want Canon dual pixel autofocus. An alternative would be a consumer ...
  • Well... the software I use, Adobe Premiere, is sold on a subscription basis at around $20 per month. I believe they give you one month for free to see if you like it. Then you start watching ...
  • The advantage of shooting in 4k (besides better detail) is what you can do in the editing phase, (assuming your project is going to be exported at 1080p.) 4k is four times the size of 1080p. In ...
  • Check this link. It's from GoPro, not Panasonic, but it recommends transferring video from the SD card to the hard drive to avoid choppy playback. https://gopro.com/help/articles/How_To/How-to-Corr ...
  • Replied in Canon XC10?
    Three features you may end up wishing you had: Power zoom. Manual zoom during handheld video is a great way to ruin a shot. Viewfinder for outdoor use: You have to attach the "loupe" viewer thingy ...
  • Last chance! Going to ebay at $2750 for camera and extra battery.
  • Check to see if the software you're using has a "proxy file" option. A proxy file makes a copy of the original file, but at a lower resolution that will play without problems. You could also check ...
