  • I'm using two G80's and an old G6 for video, without any reliability issues {my previous GH2 also never had any issues either}. I have secretly hoped my G6 would die, as it would give me an excuse ...
  • If you don't require a tall travel tripod, you could get yourself a normal full sized tripod {maybe a used one/ebay etc}, and cut it down to the exact size you require. This partly reduces the ...
  • Moving forward {from an advertising point of view...which is pretty much non-existent anyway}, I suspect that if Panasonic removed the word 'Lumix' from their cameras {and/or reduced the size of ...
  • I have never noticed this effect when shooting from a tripod {and I don't do hand-held video}, but I have certainly had this warping effect before, when using a long lens on a monopod, and using ...
  • I voted no, and truth be told, I made that decision 10yrs ago when I bought my first m43 body to use with my existing nikkor lenses back then. I only own two general-purpose Panasonic kit lenses, ...
  • I can't really add much of use, but I have an Andoer {I mistakenly thought it was a Neweer} and Kingjoy levelling bases, and suspect they are both very similar to the Neweer. I personally find ...
  • Not sure if this will partly help your issue, but I use these adapters on my 323's, as they allow me to side-ways mount my 323's to all my sliding plates {for my video heads}….to avoid the little ...
  • Some excellent activity and action there, and I too found it fascinating. I only have a very general interest in Insect videography though , so the video was a bit too long for me personally, but ...
  • The smx-10 was the first mic I had ever bought, and it was fine for my needs back then, but it didn't last very long before it developed issues. I replaced it with the Rode VideoMic Pro a few years ...
  • Seems like the ideal environment for this type of audio Mark !! Sounds very effective through my headphones.
  • It's a long time since I had my GH2, so my memory may not be as sharp these days. But, I seem to remember using an Azden smx-10 with my GH2, and the microphone jack seems different to the jack in ...
  • Nicely done Ray, and I'm guessing this is not a common occurrence in your neck of the woods It only seems like yesterday that the UK news was full of the fires sweeping the country from ...
  • Interesting stuff, and some good detail there. Now that you have peaked my interest in these chaps, I shall keep an eye out for them too...as my daily lockdown exercise usually involves a stroll ...
  • Great news for you...and really hope it works out well. Hopefully Boris is watching, and something similar happens here too, sooner or later {assuming our 'experts' consider it would suit our ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts, all....and stay safe. It seems to me that just one specific word change in a specific restriction, would make a big difference as to what is allowable in my UK ...
  • Created discussion thread Lockdown experiences
    Just wondering how the various virus restrictions are affecting us videographers in our different regions worldwide. As for me in the NW of the UK {and as a mainly bird videographer}, I have pretty ...
  • Yes, you can do that but: The grub screws tighten the top of the adapter to the base of the fluid head, to prevent the possibility of the head from unscrewing {separating from the adapter} when ...
  • The Neewer levelling adapter is identical to the Kingjoy branded adapter that I have been using for a couple of years, and I find it to be excellent value for money, and i use it very frequently. I ...
  • Unfortunately my backyard { UK garden}, is little more than a small patch of grass, with a workshop....so wildlife is pretty much zero there. Fortunately my next-door neighbour has a wonderful old ...
  • That's pretty much what I get in PS7, using auto colour correction. If all else fails {Trevor}, B&W can sometimes work well {I usually resort to it, when the slide is too faded for me to correct to ...
