  • This makes the most sense to me, if it really is to be labeled as G100.  It is a budget model, probably in DSLR format since it doesn't have an X.  I'd guess it uses the same tech as a G85, with a ...
  • First story, I bought my wife a fancy shmancy DSLR, and kept her Tamron superzoom from a film camera.  Turns out that superzoom was always way out of focus.  Out of ignorance, I never really ...
  • Replied in Beautiful bike
    You have a beautiful bike. I prefer trails to roads.  Most recent trip was a 100 mile 4 day tour with my teenage daughter and her friend on Pine Creek Trail in PA.  I took a LX100 in a small bag on ...
  • Replied in WE WIN!
    I agree with the above. Olympus has more f1.2 primes, more super zooms and more macro lenses. Panasonic has better kit lenses, more telephoto lenses, and a slight edge on small primes. Personally, ...
  • Replied in Got it to work
    I got it to work. Has been reliable. Just need to follow the steps in the youtube.  Below is a cheat sheet for lazy folks like me who can figure most of it out, and don't want to watch a 12 minute ...
  • Thanks, I hadn't watched the view to know it required the extra steps. After getting the OSB and other webcasting package installed, I still can't seem to find the GH5 on my computer within OSB or ...
  • Installed the new Lumix tether software for streaming.  It recognizes my GH5 and works fine.  But it doesn't show up as an available camera for the application Zoom. Checking my computer devices, ...
  • I consider the GH5 close to perfect.  The only thing I want changed is better continuous AF for both video and photos.  So my decision is pretty simple - if it continuous AF is much better, I'd ...
  • Ha ha! good choice!  More expensive, but great camera. Full table to avoid confusion if others read: For GH5, 1080p is max 180fps, 4k is 60fps. For GH4, 1080p is max 96fps, 4k is 30fps. For G85, ...
  • No. For GH5, 1080p is max 96fps, 4k is 30fps. For G85, 1080p is max 60fps, 4k is 30fps.
  • The GH4 is a little bigger, but only a tiny bit heavier - which makes it a bit nicer to hold, IMO. The GH4 has 96fps, vs 60 for the G85. And the GH4 battery will last longer. However, I would ...
  • The 20 -> 40mm is a bit more useful when you can't backup any more, but I prefer pictures with a 25 -> 50mm. So I'll just go with it. I like my 56 -> 112mm 1.4 lens.  But I think a 75 -> 150mm ...
  • You can still get a new GH4 for about 600, which shoots 96fps.  Or of course used for less. If you can stretch for a a6500, then I'd consider a G9 which shoots 180fps and has better ergonomics in ...
  • I got the upgrade bug and went from a Canon T1i to T4i to 70D to 80D. Then I slowly switched to Panasonic. For a while I had both Canon and Panasonic. Here is why I switched. (1) Better video. May not ...
  • I faced a similar decision between Fuji and Panasonic micro 4/3, and chose Panasonic. Reasons: (1) Lens selection.  Fuji has great lenses, but micro 4/3 has them easily beat, IMO, especially when you ...
  • I don't shoot birds or much wildlife.  So although I do want to get probably a 100-300 eventually, I wont get any expensive telephoto like the 200 2.8.  Although they do have appeal, I know I wont ...
  • Lenses will indeed transmit less than you would expect simply based on the aperture size. And I believe in general, the wider the aperture, the more divergent the T stop and aperture are. But I ...
  • The PEN F is very appealing to me.  I don't think Olympus should remove any of the features from the E-M5 - just copying all the features would be cheapest and why not.  So the extra appeal is ...
  • I think both drives you linked to - the 5tb & 8tb need AC power.  If you need a lot of storage space, and want an external drive, you basically have no choice.  If you are willing to spend more on ...
  • I don't see how your comments are unique to a GH5. Video is indeed complicated, and if a person wants to buy a fancy camera to use - that is his/her choice. I suppose that is more likely on a ...
