I'm currently looking for a lightweight lens & camera combo mainly for filming and photographing wildlife while hiking. During the hikes I'll experience variation in lighting and weather conditions, and thus I'm not considering a "superzoom compact" due to bad experience with decreased image quality in low-light. Personally I'm considering buying mirrorless to save weight and for filming with EVF. My budget is around 2500€ (approx $2800 inc. tax) Since I will mostly be outside, I want to have...

Hi has any one got experience with using the Face/Body detect or Tracking mode in relation to getting good still shots of children running around. My grandson came to see me last weekend, first time since lock down and first time since I bought the G9. I had the camera on C A F 1/400th F7 with Face/body detect on, with too many shots the focus chose the background. Naturally I was disappointed because I would have got just as many good shots with AFS and multi point A F. I'm wondering if I...

I have a Panasonic G9 at firmware level 2.0. I just bought an Olympus 14-150 4-5.6 kit lens that  the G9 recognizes at current firmware at level 1.0. I downloaded the update to 1.1 from the Oly site for Panasonic bodies and copied it to an SD card . When I install it and power up the G9 the file is never seen. If I have pictures on the card it goes directly to them or it gives me the no images found message when the DCIM folder is empty. Can anyone help me fix this issue please? Thanks.

Hello, I recently got into Sony FF cameras with the A7II quickly replaced with the A7III. The difference between those generations is HUGE. However, there are still things I'm not sure about. I am mostly a micro43 user and I wanted to upgrade for better IQ and better focusing (compared to my G9). Mostly, IQ is better, and focusing in C-AF is very competent. However, I noticed that when I'm using the Tamron 28-75 (latest v3 fw), shutter lag is highly dependent on the selected aperture when...

I recently upgraded from Panasonic G7 to G9 which is quite larger. For body + 2 lenses I have the included Panasonic shoulder bag. I'm now looking for a bag, preferably sling or across body shoulder bag, which will accommodate most of my gear : G9 + 2 large zoom lenses (P 12-60 & PL 8-18) + 2 small prime lenses (P pancake 20mm 1.7 & P 42,5mm) + Cobra flash Godox TT350o. For the time being, I have the following in mind. Any opinion or other bags you would recommend? - Think Tank Mirrorless...

I expect there's a simple answer but why is it when I have a flash on my G9 in M on my mode dial. Constant preview is disabled. Turn the flash off and up it comes again. I can get constant preview in A or S if I use Exp Comp with the flash on or off. I have auto iso disabled. Thanks.

Has anyone registered their new product under this promotion and received confirmation back that it was completed?  If so, how long did it take?  Registered my G9 and PL100-400 lens 2+ weeks ago and nothing yet.

Am looking for a new mft body, and have a few questions. Currently I own the original EM1 and a Panasonic GX8, but have decided I prefer the faux SLR over a rangefinder style. 1. Is it likely Panasonic will release an upgraded replacement for the G9 ( G10 ?) in the next year?. 2. Does anyone think Panasonic will incorporate on sensor PDAF in new releases. ?  The G 9 is currently selling at pretty prices, if PDAF is not likely in the future I would probably get it, and then replace my Zuiko...

I seldom shoot video, but decided to start to learn a little more about it recently and find that most recommendations are to shoot in 24P, in general. On page 166 of the manual (PDF) for the G9, it states that when the Recording Format is set to MP4, one of the Recording Quality options when shooting in Full HD (1920 x 1080) is 25P or 25 frames per second (along with the options of 60P, 50P and 30P). However, the menu on my camera only shows the options of 60P or 30P for the MP4 format. Is...
