  • I have used this feature on GX8 and notice no difference. Like you, I wanted to save a smaller file by losing the rubbish bit. Thought it was nice as well that you can still copy the file back on ...
  • I have used the method suggested by others which works well for me - set the camera up using the advice for back button focus: http://www.funtechtalk.com/how-to-back-button-autofocus-af-on-panasoni ...
  • Yes, you will see a lot of difference - the two are quite different. If nothing else the GX8 is twice the weight. My advice would be to use the side by side comparison on this site first to see the ...
  • Your figure to change looks very optimistic, I would have thought you will have to spend at least £200 to make the change, if not more like £250. You may have some good sources though so best of ...
  • According to the update page: (1) The option "Wireless Setup(Flash)" has been added to [Setting in REC mod] on the [Fn Button Set] of [Custom] menu.
  • Glad I didn't jump in with a quick 'No' as mine locked up today. Previous shot was on 4K S/S then did a single shot but black screen on playback - turned off and on with no joy and then realised ...
  • There has been some discussion on this on the thread about 'Three lenses not supported'. Posts there doubt that this update will happen which is a shame, wouldn't mind it as the 45-175 can be a ...
  • Have you tried using back button focus ?. You might find that this helps if the subject distance isn't changing as it saves refocussing each time. How to do this can be found at: http://www.funtech ...
  • Replied in battery
    Looks different after a quick search, Amazon says two different models ...
  • You will get more comments if you ask in the Micro Four Thirds forum as there are a lot of people that have this lens. Will be worth advising which body you are going to use it with. Peter
  • Got both the G7 and the GX8 but find the handling of the G7 better. Found that back button focus in MF with peaking to work a dream - and difficult to do with GX8. Definitely won't let G7 go but ...
  • Looks like this subject was raised 4 months ago by tesilab in the post in this forum titled 'Sigma vs Panasonic Battery 2/3 price. (Sorry if this is well known) ' Other than one reply there isn't ...
  • Optimistic resurrecting a 10 year old post !. Suspect the OP may not be active on the forums any more as his last post was in 2009 ....
  • A couple of suggestions: Are you sure you aren't closer than the minimum focusing distance ?. That has caught me out in the past. Is the AF assist light enabled ? As for lens firmware updates, ...
  • London Camera Exchange have two listed in their used - one is ex-display with a lens, the other cheaper but body only with the Panny grip. Might save the pain on your credit card ...
  • Hmm, only just seen this thread. Started with OM2 Then added OM1 XA All film sadly departed and then moved on to digital and still have all of these ! C3030 C5050 E510 E1 E3 Really should get rid ...
  • Replied in LX100 or GX7?
    Worth doing some research - there seem to be a number of problems with the LX100, a lot of reports of dust on the sensor. Nearly picked up a used one but these reports put me off - then the used ...
  • Just checked mine (don't normally use it as I use the 14-140 but this came with the 2nd hand GX8 I got). On the G7 it only shows F3.5 when completely zoomed out to 14mm, touch the zoom slightly ...
  • I've long wondered about the foreign markets that spring up at Christmas like the one in Manchester. Somehow I can't see them hanging around to fill in a VAT return before heading off home for ...
  • Thanks for this, it could be very useful. Maybe it is my age but I am starting to find it difficult remembering which button does what and how I have set it - this file may bring some order to this ...
