Does anyone know for sure what this message means? Obviously the camera cannot display the file (video in this case), but read on to see why I'm confused. I was shooting video on my GH4 and a friend was using her GH3 as a second camera. She has recently acquired it second hand along with the 14-140 zoom and an SD card. The subject was a musical performance being recorded in a studio followed by interviews with the two musicians. To match the GH3 I set my camera to shoot 50mbps 1080p. Towards...

I ordered a GR from John Lewis today as I finally came to the conclusion it is right for me when I travel.  My question is how you carry it ? The last compact camera I had was 14 years ago, so many changes including the way I take photos. Quick access is a must for street photography. i plan to but a half case and then use neck strap to carry it, then need a water proof pouch on my belt to put it away, a GH3 adapter has been ordered too.  Let me know what your solution is, cheers.  --Tim Zhou

Hello, I wonder if you can please try and help me with a new project, that I am so far struggling with. I am starting a new venture doing podcasts from a small home studio, and I want to video these Podcasts to post a high quality video on the likes of youtube. 1080p would be the minimum format I'm aiming for. The kit I currently have in my "tool box" is: Canon G5x - lovely camera, would be ideal really but on has a 29min film time which is too short. GoPro Hero5 - ideal for action stuff,...

I'm thinking about a remote shutter shutter release for my new GH5. Panasonic sells a wired remote release (DMW-RSL1) which appears to be compatible with the GH5 (it's listed in the manual as an accessory).  This unit, which looks totally basic - appears there's just one button, presumably to trigger simply the shutter - dates back to 2003 or earlier.  Hmm. One one hand, kudos to Panasonic for NOT messing with things that work (not doing what Apple routinely does - change mostly for the sake...

I expect most of you probably fall into one of a few rough categories when it comes to photo backups while traveling (laptop, online backup, lots of memory cards), and I'm looking for input on a reasonable strategy given my particular needs, today's technologies and realities. I've used a simple strategy for many years and it has served me well (details below), but it is not perfect, it has significant limitations, and since I'm currently updating a lot of my gear, this seems like a good time...

I need an EF to Micro 4/3 adapter to be able to attach my Canon lens to the GH3 which I am planning to get. Could anyone recommend the best lens adapter for my situation? My primary use would be to record movies from a tripod. I am a little bit confused by all the available adapter options and I am trying to keep my costs down. Thanks a1

Hello Being reading DPReview for a long time, I just wanted to ask a quick question. I am about to purchase a GH5, goal is to make still pictures & shoot videos (my children playin' at weekly basis). I already own a pancake 20mm 1.7 that I use 90% of the time with my GH3 and a 14-140 mark2 + a 7-14 that I use when traveling. As I want to get rid of my camcorder and do with GH5 both still & videos, I look for a new lens, very silent while zooming/autofocus, quick, to do both still and...

I have had my EM 1.2 for a couple of months now and I have a number of issues. Most, I think are due to my coming from many years using a Panasonic GH1 and then GH3. Beside never being able to find things in the manual or in the menus my biggest issue is with the Mode Dial. At least I think it is. EM 1.2 Mode Dial  When the mode dial is set to P, C1, C2 or C3 the camera powers up to a fixed group of settings. When it is set to A, S or M it powers up to what the camera was set to when I last...

My old Lumix f4 14-140 is no longer focusing reliably, and I need to change it. The f3.5 version looked like a straightforward upgrade, until I saw a lot of reports about jittery video on some bodies - including the GH range.   I know the IQ gets good reviews for stills, but I need to use it for video too. If you are using the f3.5 14-140mm with a GH3 - for video - do tell us what you think of it - good or bad.

EDIT*  These Problems are solved. Please delete, many thanks! Hi, I bought a used Panasonic GH3 Camera lately and unfortunately I have several Problems with. The most important one: When Display is switched on and I turn the camera, the screen goes of and turns on again when I move the camera body back. Does anyone know what why it does that? When I plug in my external microphone, all I hear is just atmospheric noise. When I pull off the ext. microphone, it records sound. These are the most...
