  • When we take a trip my wife and I sometimes take over 1000 pictures(would't do that with film)  After transferring them to my computer we choose around three hundred, upload them to a printing ...
  • I'm still hemming and hawing  I"m not worried about the usefulness of the G7X ii  My other mirrorless and bridge  cameras are not heavy.  I'm thinking about the viewfinders and the weather ...
  • Your post is helpful to me because that's what I'm planning to do this fall on a European trip
  • Just an addition to my G7X ii experiences I took the camera to a fathers day barbecue yesterday  It was cloudy and humid out with very little sun.  The lack of viewfinder was a non issue in these ...
  • I used them a few times in the past  They did not hold a charge  They were so inexpensive I just took the loss and got rid of them.  Now I buy mainly OEM batteries but use Watson with mo ...
  • My ZS100 does not have the reach of your SX 730 but has a viewfinder  Two things I like about the GX7 ii are the touch screen and the fact that it tilts down 45 degrees.  Handy when you need t ...
  • I'll add my agreement to the other posters.  All my other cameras had viewfinders so I really didn't want this camera. However, All the other features of the G7X ii overcame the lack of ...
  • I have the Ruggard Lyra size 50 for my GX7ii It fits perfectly It has a secure opening belt strap and zippers that you can open and close with one hand The camera slides in and out of the case ...
  • I have the Watson 2 battery charger. It works well with the the Olympus batteries You can purchase different plates($1.99each) for the two sides. I have charged the Olympus as well as Panasonic ...
  • I agree with your review of the GX7 ii.  It is a perfect walk around travel camera I wonder how you feel about the lack of  a viewfinder  I bought this camera for all the great features it has. I ...
  • The 3 main things I didn't like 1. Price 2. Pop up viewfinder 3. Value for price Its very difficult to take a video with a small camera like these without a tripod thats bigger than the camera. You ...
  • Not to belittle anyone's choice of camera but I agree.  Even if the Sony had been the same price as the G7Xii I wouldn't have bought it. After researching it I just didn't like it IMHO the price of ...
  • I have the ZS 100 but not the 200.  I was looking for another compact camera to replace my mirrorless  I did not feel like lugging it on vacations any more with extra lenses The first camera I ...
  • I have used Watson and Wasabi in the past with no problems.  A Watson came as an extra battery with my new Canon GX 7ii from B&H.  I have found that secondary batteries and chargers don't work and ...
  • I carry Think Tank battery pouches.  When the battery is discharged I place it back in the pouch with the terminal facing up. At the end of the day I know which batteries to charge
  • I like either.  Flippy is more versatile but I'm always afraid when it sticks out like a rear view mirror I will somehow manage to break it off
  • I have this camera as a vacation backup.  I have not had any issues with it.  The B&H price is very good right now.  My only complaint is that there is almost no grip or place to put your thumb  I ...
  • No camera would have the exact features you may want  I have the Fz300 and have found it to be the best set of features for my needs The weather sealing worked well walking on a very wet path ...
  • Many of my cameras and phones have been gremlinized in the past All camera manufacturers include little gremlins in the box that do these things
  • Not sure about the EM 1 but my EM5 II has one. I find it much more convenient to use on my G85 and probably other Panasonic models.  There is one on my ZS 100 compact as well On the EM5 II there is ...
