Hello, I acquired a collection of cameras, lenses and accessories from family.  They are not sorted well at all and I am unable to inquire from the original owner.  Among the collection are a Lumix GX7 and G5.  Do the GX7 and G5 take the same batteries?   There are 2 loose batteries.  Both are labeled for the GX7.  I have 4 chargers- 2 are duplicate models, so 3 models of chargers.  One has no stickers/labels on it and it was loose in the box.  Two (different styles and brands) have stickers...

Hi all, Since getting my EPL5 (used) a couple of years ago I have sometimes found the image quality lacking, especially when shooting in to the light or with bright areas or contrasty images. Most of the time it hasn't bothered me, but I have felt a bit that I wasn't seeing the quality I would expect from this sensor, particularly when looking back at old photos from my Panny. I took my G5 out recently and was really pleased with the images and felt it was much better than the EPL5, which...

Help needed.  I am Unable to cancel a WiFi upload that is preventing the deletion of photos.  The battery has been removed etc.  I am trying to avoid a reset. This G5 has been used by daughter in Full Auto Mode. The WiFi upload attempt was not done on purpose and the WiFi  has never been configured.

I am new to the forum, although not new to Nikon. I was a loyal Canon user back in film days (Ftb, F1, EF) and then my first digital was a Canon G5. When I finally decided to go back to SLRs, I was ready for an 80D. After playing around with it and a D7500 for a few hours, I decided to go with the Nikon, and I have no regrets.  To the point: I now have a Z6II and I love it so far, especially for its sharpness, quick focus and silent focus, and high ISO capabilities. However, after a few days...

Hi Guys, I currently have a G5X Mark II, and I use it to do some night photography. I am trying to find comparaison with the RX100, but I can't find any good comparaison for night photography. I can see from other users posts that the RX100 IV was better than the VII for night photography, but no actual comparaison with the G5x. So, in your opinion, is the RX100 suitable/good enough to take pictures in low light or at night ? Is there a "technical" spec to look at for usability in low...

Is there such a thing as a push-on lens hood for this camera?

I recently purchased the G90 and am looking at an extra battery or 2 as the life span between charges is quite limited. The Panasonic is a DMW BLC12E .   On Amazon the EXpro says their DMW BLC12E  is compatible with G5, 6, 7 and GH2 FZ200, 1000.  Other people say they have used it with the G80.   So  am I right in assuming it  will be OK for the G90  ?    The EXpro battery is half the price of a Panasonic.   I have used an EXpro battery for 8 or 9 years in my fz 150 without problems.  So is...

A quick question: is it possible to set G5Xii to power on and off by activating the pop-up EVF, like on the RX100 series cameras? I find it a little fiddly in its default setting, with power on and off as an extra step. It’d be much easier if the camera simply turns on when the EVF is activated and off when it’s pushed back down.   thanks

Hi everyone, I’m still new and learning so my apologies if my post is a bit ignorant. I currently have a Sony a6000 that i particular enjoy shooting with a the 35mm prime lens as it gives a gorgeous shallow depth of field.  Though I love that combination, I find myself not taking it often enough with me due to the size (even though the a6000 is not that big, the lens adds a lot to it). With a toddler I just need something that will fit in a large pocket/small purse.  i initially looked at the...
