  • There's no question that 35mm has some advantages over m43, but if your shooting doesn't include low light, huge prints or lots of cropping, and if the m43 output is "good enough" for you, 35mm ...
  • @snapa, as someone who shot 35mm and medium format in the film era, I still believe that a medium format user will have a more deliberate approach to shooting than a 35mm user. You listed FPS as...

  • I just visited the Elinchrom website. HSS and TTL are not available with the GX8. I'll stick to my original Neo and my Flashpoint/Godox system. Interestingly, full compatibility seems to be ...
  • Created discussion thread Rotolight Neo2; GX8, Elinchrom
    Anyone try this combo?  Are the Rotolights fully functional with an older Lumix like the GX8?
  • Replied in 10-30 Anyone?
    “Kit price” might be relative to which body the lens is paired with.  Someone earlier suggested a 10-30 as a package with a new GH6.
  • Replied in 10-30 Anyone?
    The 10-25 is a great lens, but not a kit lens.  I doubt that any zoom lens starting at f/1.7 will have a kit price.
  • Created discussion thread 10-30 Anyone?
    Browsing in L-Mount land, the 20-60 kit lens may be the first S lens, if not the first product, to create envy among users of other brands.  I’ve seen more than a few “please (other brand) make a ...
  • I hope bridge cameras stay a bit longer.  The leaf shutter in the FZ and LX cameras gives me flash possibilities you can't get with HSS.  Except for Hasselblad, no one has leaf shutter lens in ...
  • @Alex, would you like to see an m43 10-30 “budget” lens? I would, since the 10-25/1.7 is 2.5 times the price.

  • Created discussion thread Let's Adapt This Sony User's Mindset
    The quote below is from a Sony user considering the A7c.  I feel the same way about my GX8, especially when I have it in a small messenger bag with the 25 1.7 and the 42.5/1.7. "I am looking at ...
  • Replied in GX-8
    With DSLR's and smartphones ubiquitous, the GX-8 is like hiding a beast in plain sight.  Just 2 days ago I was walking the street with it and the 25/1.7, and a man thought I was shooting a film ...
  • Can you create a g90 sized body with the same heat dissipation of a GH5?  The burst rate of the G9?  The robust shutter and better viewfinder?  What will you sacrifice to get to your ideal size?
  • More robust shutter, higher burst rate, better viewfinder (G9), better heat dissipation (GH5). If you want or need these features, you’ll pay for them in price, size or both. M43 kits will be ...
  • @Thecylon. Are you shooting video ALL DAY in that Florida heat? Look at the Tuck post and then look at the DPRTV review. I’m mainly stills, so heat dissipation is not as important to me, but...

  • Anyone asking what could be the benefit of a bulkier body should look at Kirk Tuck's recent posts. He talks about using a G9 (not even the videocentric Lumix!) all day in triple digit Texas heat. ...

  • Replied in S5 = GH6...
    I don’t think so.  Part of the GH5 “bigness” in m43 is its effective heat dissipation.  Kirk Tuck posted a blog about his shooting video all day in triple digit Texas heat with a G9.  He followed ...
  • Replied in Positive m4/3s
    I had an engagement shoot with another photographer.  He had a Canon 5 series while I had my GX8.  His wife was his assistant and first thought I was shooting film.  As the keeper of the backpack ...
