  • Can you post some sample video to YouTube or something? Since the update I've found the panning motion to be nice and smooth on a tripod or handheld.
  • In each moment where the motion changes direction, you can see that the left side of the screen (the non updated firmware G85) has a weird stuttery hitch. In some cases it even jumps in the ...
  • I would suspect Panasonic has a lot of stock already out "in the wild" at retailers and warehouses. They aren't going to recall them just to flash new firmware on them. They work fine with the ...
  • The G85 I used for this comparison was purchased from Amazon and arrived on Saturday December 10th, 2016 and did not come with the firmware update. That said the update process seemed very ...
  • Glad you liked it! Yep that video was the one I saw. Then when I got my G85 I replicated it before they released the new firmware but I realized I had a chance to do a really awesome side by side ...
  • Replied in G7 Milky Way?
    You can with some tricky techinques. You aren't going to just get a single shot exposure most likely or at least it will be very hard. Using stacking though you can take a series of shots and then ...
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Myps7hl-jgg I managed to snag a second G85 for a day which did not have updated firmware. I was able to do a really good side by side comparison against my updated ...
  • I've only had the sticking issue at extreme telephoto (350mm equivalent) or on a tripod doing pans. I've been getting a lot of nice handheld footage though with the kit lens. Are you getting that...

  • Panasonic just released an official statement on the issue: https://www.instagram.com/p/BMjZ-2-BEEo/

    "Less than a week ago, Panasonic became aware of some reports that the G85's image...

  • It can do optical wireless trigger. Same as the G7. I just tested it and fired my Yongnuo YN560IV and it works fine.

  • Amazon packing combined with UPS shipping was pretty horrendous. See the following: https://twitter.com/firworksyt/status/794279838987276290

    Despite how bad that looks though only one corner of...

  • Got my G85 today! Arrived safely despite UPS and Amazon's best efforts. Stabilizer is amazing coming from a G7 and I cannot believe how quiet the shutter is. It feels so comfortable and I'm "right...

  • Well, if the G7 is any indication, we can expect a firmware update for the G85 by the time the G951 is out. -_-

  • I tweeted the original G80 video of the IBIS problem to Panasonic and Lumix twitter accounts and they told me they forwarded it on to their team and they are looking into the issue.

  • Honestly I would even pay an upgrade fee like V-Log for it. ~50-80$ to add 120fps I would do it. A lot of people especially people who shoot photos primarily it wouldn't make sense but for...

  • Why can the LX-10 shoot 120FPS Full HD video then? It's certainly not a high end or pro model. I keep hoping that Panasonic will announce that they can add 120FPS Full HD or heck even 120FPS 720P...

  • I believe the battery grip holds one battery but it does come with it for the extremely high price. A notable feature though (I saw it in a G85 video on YouTube  I believe) is that the the battery ...
  • So  is it expected that the G85 will not have the same 2.3x crop factor in 4K video like the G7 had? That would be yet another ticked box for me to grab the G85. I shoot in my garage most often ...
  • Several people have referenced the free grip offers. Can anyone share a site that actually has it? I haven't been able to find that offer anywhere.

  • Replied in G7 ==> G85 ?
    I love my G7 but am still planning to grab the G85. It does have a fair bit of improvements over the G7. I can't wait to try out the IBIS on adapted lenses, and if I can find the battery grip deal ...
