So i'm looking at this lens on KEH and it states that it has a micro 4/3 mount and the format compatibility says 4/3. What dies this mean? Btw this is the name of the lens, Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 M.Zuiko L ED Autofocus lns for micro 4/3 system, and will this work fine on my Lumix DMC-G5?

Can anyone please tell me how to set shutter to B (Bulb) on a Lumix G5? The manual just refers to "If you set the shutter speed to B..." with no hint as to HOW you do that. Can anyone help, please? Thank you

When making macro photo's of plants like this one: Branche of plant with flowers I encounter the problem that the camera is focusing on the background instead of the foreground even if the focus range button on the lens is set on full focus. My work around is to put my hand in front of the lens en pressing the release button. To reproduce my problem I give a test setting. See below: Setup of camera with camera 1 meter from newspaper with paper clip in the foreground. Put a news magazine on...

I recently purchased a G5 camera and a used Pansonic 14-45 lens.  I'm curious of what you think of the combination and what you would recommend as a middle-range zoom lens. HGreblo

I have a chance to get a T3i body only for about $250.  I have been looking at the SL1 with lens kits for about $400.  I can add a the 24mm pancake lens and be at about the same price.  I know I forgo the touchscreen but what other things will be sorely missed? The SL1 does lack an articulating screen. My last cameras I owned were the Canon Rebel XS and the Panasonic G5.

I've got a Lenovo G500s Touch, if that matters. We bought this camera used, so if there are software or drivers needed, that could be it. However, I've downloaded ViewNXi, Capture NX-D, and View NX2, to no avail.   Could it be something as silly as the fact that the USB cable is a Kodak brand cable?  I figure there must be something really basic that I'm missing, but reading through the manual and looking at YouTube tutorials is turning up nothing about this issue. Any and all help is...

Hello I am going to India in November for what I hope will be the trip of a lifetime. My plan is to take my GM5 with my Olympus 9-18 attached and my G5 with my Lumix 14-45 and 45 -150. I love both these lenses and have had great results with them but wonder if the Lumix 14-140 F3.5 would be a better choice as I would not have to do any lens changes which from an environmental, (dust), and security, (hey, look what he's got) perspective might be a better solution than the 14-45 and 45-150. I...

Hello i have just taken delivery of a GM5 and am generally very impressed with the picture quality and the small size. Best point and shoot I've ever had! One issue is the tiny flash included with the GM5. It is really week and requires getting very close to the subject even with maximum flash exposure compensation. I have tried to use my Metz 24-AF1 but the camera doesn't seem to operate the flash properly. All the pictures are completely washed out by the flash even with minimum flash...

Hi everyone. First, some background. My wife currently has an ageing Canon 450D and 60mm macro lens as her main "proper" camera. However, because of the weight/size, she has started to use it less. Her Canon G11 compact camera became faulty so she now has a Panasonic G1 + 12-32 as her carry anywhere camera. Given that I already have an assortment of M4/3 bodies and lenses, it makes sense for her to consider moving to M4/3 completely if she decides to downsize her main body. She would prefer a...
