  • Despite weather-sealing being one of their requirments, it didn't stop them getting a non-weather-sealed GX85. Which also has a fully articulated screen, not flip... and fairly obviously, not the ...
  • It's actually quite rare when that happens to me, although that may be largely due to the type of photography I use m43 for, and the amount of practice I've had at it. Even when it does happen, ...
  • Really, is it actually that useful? Is it useful at all ? To get the top burst rate, don't you have to use electronic shutter? In which case, results might be poor in any scene with movement ...
  • Replied in Nikon TC-E17ED
    Yes, the 45-175mm works well with end-of lens (afocal) teleconverters, thanks to internal zoom and small front element. Internal zoom means the weight of the teleconverter is not going to affect ...
  • Try one of THESE ;-D Seriously though - during travel, I use the cheapest, lightest rucksack (the one I got free by joining Friends of Duxford! :-D)... or my air travel carry-on luggage. Protection ...
  • Press play... then press play again (or half-press shutter). In most rear-screen display modes, that will show the date/time for a couple of seconds. 2 button presses (Pana) is surely better than 5 ...
  • I do not believe that is correct: AFC always uses "predictive" focussing, in both Release Priority and Focus Priority. AFF only uses "predictive" focussing in Release Priority. And if I wanted ...
  • I don't have the GH4, but I do have the FZ1000 and I've used it extensively for the last couple of years - same thing there, for me. Like I said, the difference is not large... but after real-world ...
  • There is the customisable "Quick menu", which is excellent, and there is also a rear-screen display mode that is much like the Oly SCP (or a DSLR settings display). It has the snappy name ...
  • In my airshow photography, and figure skating photography, I get better results with AFF than AFC. Planes move fairly predictably, though not always... but figure skaters move quite unpredictably. ...
  • Not the first time I've seen someone fail at reading comprehension. And won't be the last... It IS a bug. Not a user preference.
  • Just to confirm: you can indeed make those adjustments to Auto White Balance (AWB) NB. press "set" to save any adjustments you make, then "set" again to use that WB...! Each WB preset can be ...
  • Created discussion thread UK Free G80 grip, out of stock til Dec
    28 days passed after I claimed my free G80 battery grip, and it didn't arrive... so I emailed Panasonic. They replied to say that due to the success of the promotion, they ran out of stock - ...
  • Yes, I think that's how it works - it applies to whichever WB preset or Custom WB you choose, even if it's Auto WB. I will check later, if nobody else confirms/denies in the meantime. Among many ...
  • I think the adjustment you want, is under "white balance" rather than "photo style", so it's easy to miss it... Whichever WB setting you choose, you can adjust the Amber/Blue and Green/Magenta ...
  • For me, yes those things are enough to swing me toward the 12-60mm as a "general purpose walk-around" lens. My IQ needs are modest in that range of focal lengths, and I don't need anything ...
  • Of course, yes. Obviously you have control over White Balance , there are the usual presets, temperature select, and Custom WB's which you can set using a white/gray card etc. Then there are ...
  • Do they ensure adequate lighting for TV at championship-level events? Not always. Some places lighting is very good... some places are no more than "adequate" or even a bit poor, despite hosting ...
  • If you want to see some examples of figure skating shot with M43... 2016 Finlandia Trophy 2016 JGP Tallinn Cup 2016 Oberstdorf Adult competition All shot using Panasonic GX85 with 40-150 f2.8 - ...
  • "Sleep" mode is something different. Yes, you can have EVF only, and set the camera to sleep after x minutes of no activity. This is the "traditional" power save option, and it works the same as ...
