  • Too soon .... from reliable sources!
  • So I see you are in Belgium - still, no excuse for a lack of communication. My comments pertained to McAllen TX facility in the US. Honestly, you should send a follow up e-mail to the local ...
  • Macro work is extremely difficult, handheld. I still follow the "old school" rule that a tripod is used, and when used, stabilization is turned off. Depending on which camera you use, use either ...
  • Interesting work. Video was great, choice of music is even better. It really makes the end result very eerie. Some day I hope to see Northern Lights in person.
  • Rick DFD technology is, in part, a lens embedded technology. I don't think it has to do with adding another manufacturers lens to a list. Does McDonalds offer their special sauce to Burger King? ...
  • In all fairness, I've had several repairs done by the McAllen facility and never had any problems. While a repair is never "fast enough", I received the camera back within ~10 working days. Human ...
  • Where are you located, and who is servicing it? Have you contacted them? If the camera was not in warranty, did you receive the written estimate, and did you respond authorizing the repair?
  • 1. GH5 does not charge via USB. 2. If the battery required 8.4V @ 2A of charging current (it doesn't), than the 5V source would need to supply at least twice the current. I don't know of any USB ...
  • I've done it, and it took less time than it does to reply to many topics here. Many rebates are rather complicated, but if you find filling out a few questions too much work, than you may not need ...
  • If the dealer didn't inform you about the extended warranty than he's likely not an authorized dealer. The warranty is only offered when purchased from an authorized dealer, all of which are ...
  • THe US 3 year extended warranty is FREE - all you need to do is fill out the form and mail it in with proof of purchase and the bar code. How much easier do you want it?
  • The warranty statement is usually contained in the back of the owners manual.
  • Replied in Grey vs Legit
    In the US you should receive a "limited warranty" statement which mentions the US and Canada. That is the law. Panasonic never did away with this. US models do not have a "worldwide warranty". ...
  • What monitor are you using. I've also been using a GH5, and did a similar comparison. Not until I started using a 4K monitor did I start seeing the difference. In fact, the added clarity of a 4K ...
  • Heat dissipation is a very minor issue, though somewhat relavent. The capacity of the battery vs. the lower charging voltage and limited ability to supply ample charging current make it ...
  • Replied in You are wrong.
    There was a time when I said the same. At some point you test the waters and realize how video can expand your enjoyment. Now, with 4K & 6K photo, these new features pretty much remove the excuse ...
  • Its very unfortunate that people seem to only be motivated to share bad news. I've used Panasonic's service several times and they did a very fine job. 1. Gray market cameras do not carry a US ...
  • Panasonic gets reimbursed from the factory in Japan, so when they deny a claim it is taking money out of their pocket. Your logic is backwards. I know for a fact that for each claim they do have ...
  • Replied in G85 Locking Up
    For what it is worth, I had a camera go back to Panasonic twice for "lock up" issues. First time was "no problem found". he second time I included the memory card, with which they were able to ...
  • Replied in Silkypix
    While you may fool the software, the NR and overall processing is not optimized for the new camera. Their updates come regularly, just sit back and enjoy the camera !
