  • I just got my GX85 yesterday, and only have had time to some a few test shots. I had purchased Lightroom 6.0, but when I went to view my photos, it said the files I was trying to open were not ...
  • I think the Panasonic Lumix GX85 should have been on this list.

  • Funny thing is, Adorama's headline says "W/$150 Gift Card." But when you click on "show details," it says you will get a "Adorama $100.00 Gift Certificate." Somebody made a boo-boo.
  • I ordered my GX85 and kit from B&H on Tuesday (12/6), even though it was not in stock. I expected I'd have to wait a week or two. But, I'm happy to say, it will be delivered in a couple of hours ...
  • I already have Lightroom 5.7, but I ended up purchasing and downloading the 6.0 upgrade. However, when I installed 6.0, I expected it to overwrite 5.7, but it didn't ... it added 6.0. What I want ...
  • Created discussion thread LR raw processing of GX85 files
    Does anybody know if you need the latest version of Lightroom to process RAW files from the Panasonic GX85? Or does it matter because all Panasonic RAW files are the same no matter which camera ...
  • With the exception of the "selfie" flip-up LCD screen, this camera is not too much different that the X-A1 or X-A2.

    I hope they improved the focusing speed on this one because the X-A1's low-light...

  • An outfit called The Art of Photography has reviewed the GX85 on YouTube, and they give it some pretty bad marks as far as video is concerned. And, at approximately 3:46, he demonstrates the poor ...
  • Replied in Thanks everyone
    Thank you all for your input. I hope to make a decision in a couple of weeks.
  • Created discussion thread GX85's crappy mics
    I just saw a review on YouTube where the reviewer demonstrated the poor audio quality in videos as a result of the inferior microphones on the GX85. I was wondering why I hadn't heard about this ...
  • Hi John, Thanks for your reply. Those are very nice shots. And I am leaning more toward the 14-42 EZ since I already have a 12-32 on my GM5. Decisions, decisions. ;o)
  • Thanks, I should have mentioned that the 15mm Leica-branded lens was another lens I am considering. I'm just not sure the 30mm equivalent focal length would be suitable for the type of shooting I ...
  • Created discussion thread Compact lens dilemma
    I am considering getting a Panasonic GX85, and was thinking I would get it with its kit 12-32mm Lumix lens. I do most of my shooting in wide angle, but it is nice to have a little extra reach once ...
  • Replied in LX7 Error
    Hi Ronomy, That seems to have done the trick. I turned the camera on and zoomed the lens in and out a couple of times and the error message has not come back. I love using my LX7 for making quick ...
  • Hi Roland, I don't think you will have any problem with it. I did the exact thing that you are proposing with an old Panasonic DMC-FX37 sitting on a mini-tripod on my car's dashboard, and the video ...
  • Created discussion thread LX7 Error
    Well, I guess my LX7 is getting even with me for not having used it much this year (blame my GM5). I turned my LX7 on today and it booted up OK, but a couple of seconds later I saw a screen that ...
  • I purchased a nearly identical item (only difference, it is all black) on Amazon for $11.

  • Replied in X70 or x100t
    Bill, I have an X-A1, and I never have trouble seeing the LCD in bright light. Just press and hold the "Q" (Quick Menu) button, and the screen gets brighter. To return it to normal, press and hold ...
  • My first camera, when I was about 6 years old, was a Herco Imperial 620 box camera.
    My first "real" camera, as a pre-teen, was a Nikon S rangefinder, with a Kowa 35mm lens.

  • Which lens are you using? My GM5 does terrible autofocus using the 12-32mm kit lens.
