  • Use "S" mode - shutter speed priority, and ensure you set the shutter speed high enough to freeze the moving subject. To do this may require you to open up the aperture and/or increase the ISO, if ...
  • On Windows machines, storing files in the same drive (usually the C:\ drive) where the operating system resides will always eventually slow down the machine, as the drive gets full and also ...
  • Erm ... I believe both EVFs and rear screens have about the same degree of delay, since they're both electronically rendered images. The EVF is simply a smaller "rear screen" with magnifying ...
  • I'd like to see a FF digital camera that uses a legacy manual focus lens mount, that's not a rangefinder. Like a Nikon DSLR using legacy manual focus glass only. A camera that's no bigger than a ...
  • So, perhaps one of you technical people can explain to us laypersons how a lens can cause banding in some sensors. Thanks. ~Joe
  • When I bought my first micro-4/3 camera, the G1, in December of 2008, Olympus was not yet in the game. Since then I've been happy with Panasonic, and wasn't all that impressed with the build ...
  • I have an X10 and it has the same problem. The focus for the OVF is broken. If I zoom out, eventually it'll be near normal, but it's totally blurry at wide angles. I didn't want to pay to have it ...
  • One other possible reason is simple tradition; electronic shutters are only a recent innovation in m4/3 cameras, whereas the format dates back to September of 2008 with the Lumix G1. ~Joe
  • I believe "Panasonic" was a division of Matsushita Electric (not to be confused with Mitsubishi). Along with Technics and maybe one other brand I can't remember. Then around the time that ...
  • As I recall, in many regions where these cameras are sold they're limited to a 30 minute record time. The reason has to do with the differences between how dedicated video cameras and still ...
  • This reminds me of a problem I've had with my G1 and G5 using an aftermarket flash that's powered by a CR123 lithium cell. the flash will trigger with older cameras that use mechanical flash ...
  • If you guys think working with image files on an iPad is tough, try importing MP3 or .WAV files from a stand alone digital audio field recorder's SD card. The iPad camera connection adapter is ...
  • Replied in And DOF.....
    I like the term "shallowness of focus" when refering to larger formats. People who misuse the term "depth of focus" are, well, out of their depth.😊 ~Joe
  • I've been able to do this (preview images in monochrome in Live View without recording a JPEG) on the original G1 and my current G5. Set your camera to RAW only, then set the mode to a B/W film ...
  • Or better yet, just find a picture of the moon and clouds in Creative Commons and copy it. That's what I do for astrophotography, I just find a Hubble shot I like and claim I took it with my ...
  • I switched from m43 to a smaller format camera, because I needed wider DOF, not narrower . BTW, that's one of the main reasons why film-era camera lenses often had DOF scales, and why it seemed ...
  • Part of the reason is because Panasonic has prosumer/industrial/ENG/Broadcast/Cinema quality video products that do have these features, and don't want to undersell them into their consumer line ...
  • Replied in why?
    Roberto, I understand that lenses optimized for video need to have a clickless aperture ring, so that varying the aperture while recording won't result in step-like exposure changes; and since ...
  • FWIW, Silkypix shows the dead pixels in the raw preview window but eliminates them when rendering the JPEG file. This is my experience with the G1 and G5. ~Joe
  • Created discussion thread 14-25 Compact Zoom?
    Here's a question perhaps someone can answer. Since I'm an old traditionalist who likes the classic focal lengths of 28, 35 and 50mm, but who would like a compact-sized lens, is there a 14-25mm ...
