Hi. Recently a friend announced he was buying a new camera and offered to sell me his 550 EXR for $14 au (I have no idea where that figure came from) . I suppose I wasn't surprised to find out after agreeing that it had a problem. Apparently it had been working perfectly well, when for no apparent reason the battery began to drain whenever the battery/SD card compartment was shut, even if the camera was powered off. Since it came with several spare batteries, I tested it, and sure enough,...
I"ve just replaced my old LX5 with the LX7 and would like to keep and use the LWA52 wide angle lens,, I understand that I need to purchase a KIWI tube adaptor which I can get from Germany via Amazon, now when I bought the LX7 it came with a full printed manual, but having looked all the way through it I still cannot see how I would attach the KIWI tube. Can someone please explain how it connects. Thanks guys,,,, Roland.
Just "upgraded" my old LX5 to the LX7 and wondered if any of you owners / users could answer a question please. I"ve been using the LX5 with the settings of,, Std film Sat + 1, Con 0 , Sharp +1 , NR -2 , Will these settings be ok for the LX7 or have you guys found a "better set" , Thanks guys.

Having sorted out a FZ200 replacement for my FZ150, I wondered if you guys could help me with a question regarding the LX5 / LX7 Simply,, will the LVF-1 viewfinder, LA6 + LWA52 adaptor tube and wide lens and spare battery that I have/use with my LX5 also fit and work on the LX7 or would I need to "start again" with these bits. Also with the cosy of buying these ""add on"s"" along with the camera, would the outlay be worth it for the better camera / iq that the LX7 would supposedly give me,,...
This has probably been asked before, and if so, please excuse my asking again, but,,,, I have an "aging" FZ150, that I'm not 100% is as sharp as it should be after being dropped a few weeks ago,, first time EVER that I've dropped a cam,, Now although I still have and use the TZ25 / LX5 combo, I'm thinking I will replace the 150,, I had a very brief ownership of a FZ1000 which (to cut the story short) wasn't for me so can you guys answer me this,, Do I pick up another used FZ150 or is the...

The more I think about it, the more I will opt for the GH4R. I did find a good deal for the GH2, which I could hack and all, but I am not so sure about using a hacked system. And I checked most of the GH2 hacked video samples. They look pretty good, and they would better blend with the LX100 than the current old LX5 and the beloved LX3 I have (no 1080p, either). Maybe I am unconsciously biased, but I like the GH4 video quality better. I see the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 (€200) seems close...
Now to some of you this might seem a daft question, but I'll ask anyway,, If I took a photo inside say a Church, Stately home, that kind of thing with both my FZ150 @ f2.8,, and my LX5 @ f2 for someone like myself who's only really a "snapper" nowadays, and that's on holidays, days out etc,, am I really going to see much difference in iq between the two shots. I understand the f2 will be slightly faster (think that's right) but is that .8 really making a big difference ? There is...

Hi :) very new to this forum (and a camera novice). You guys are all so lovely on all the other posts and I'm really at a loss here. So I've had this camera for about 5 years, never had any problems, always bring it to gigs so it takes a bit of a banging. Last gig at the end of January it worked fine and yesterday it stopped focusing the picture when I zoom in, my zoomed out pictures are still great but once I zoom it wont sharpen. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do? first I thought (as...
Can somone confirm or set me straight on a setting? If the mode dial is set to iA and the menu set to jpeg+raw is will shoot pictures in...jpeg and raw so long as the menu is set to iA+. But if you just set the menu to iA it will only shoot in JPEG? Thanks --Sony F505(retired), Sony F707(gave to son), SonyF717(gave to wife) Sony S85(great little camera thatwas stolen), Sony CD 1000 (ancient but a great lens), Sony P93Sony H9(retired) Panasonic LX3 that became an LX5 that became an LX7...
