Hey Everyone, My wife and I are going on a big road trip in September and will be stopping at a few national parks. I currently have an old Gf5 with a 45-200 lens. My question is will that be better or would an FZ300 be better for taking pictures of wildlife we should be seeing there? Side note: I'm planning on buying the upcoming Canon G7x Mark II for a small pocketable camera because of the size, fast lens, and the star modes. That should also provide some good landscape photos i think...
One of our club members has a DMC-GF5 which has no PC sync port or hot shoe. For studio portrait work we use a mixture of Bowen and Elinchrom strobes which can be optically triggered. Unfortunately the GF5 fires a pre-flash which triggers the strobes before the shutter is open :-( I've had a good read through the Advanced Features manual and can't find any way of turning it off. Does anybody know a way of turning this pre-flash off? Thanks in advance Ian
One of our club members has a DMC-GF5 which does not have a hot shoe or PC sync port. For studio portrait work we have a mix of old Bowen and Elinchrome strobes which have the option of optical triggering. The problem is the GF5 fires a pre-flash which cannot be turned off. This triggers the strobes before the shutter is open :-( What I'm looking for is a smart flash trigger which can be told to ignore the pre-flash and trigger on the main flash. Something similar to the S1 and S2 slave...
Hi everyone, I'm wondering if it is possible to remote control the Panasonic GF5 using a computer? The camera's timer is limited to 3 pictures and a maximum 60 seconds exposure for each picture. Is there any way to remote control the camera with a cable connected to the computer? (I do astrophotography and I can't sit outside all night). I don't see any remote shutter cables available for this camera. Thanks in advance for your help. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I do YouTube tech videos which are generally usually based inside, and I decided that I would upgrade to a new camera. What is the best camera that I can find used or refurbished (somewhere) for $200-$275? Here's a list that I made of cameras that I would be able to get for that much used. These are all either Compact SLRs or Full size DSLRs, because I feel as if Dslr's sort of have more "features" and "Customization" with ebing able to shoot in raw, and interchangeable lenses and what not,...
Hey guys,I currently have a Panasonic FZ72 (which I've only had since April) but I'm feeling a bit limited by it. I wouldn't want to be without it but I'd quite like something in addition to it - which leads me to the GF6.I've done a fair bit of reading up about it but I'm still pretty new to the world of lenses and aperture!I'd like to know whether you think it's a good step up. I've always been put off DSLRs by the size/weight/cost and I don't think I'd end up using one much so the GF6...
Hey, A couple of months ago I switched from my Nikon D300s kit to a fantastic Olympus E-M10 kit. Unfortunately I had to bring in the E-M10 for repairs (front dial got squeaky and almost completely locked) and now I'm probably out-of-camera for 2 to 3 weeks. It's not that big of a deal (I'm not a pro) but still I was looking for a cheap (maybe 2nd hand) M4/3 body which I can use as a backup body, or a camera I can give to my kids without having to worry too much. :) After looking for some 2nd...
Hi all I'm after a little buying advice. I currently own a GF5 with Panasonic 25/1.4 as my go to lens. Thinking of upgrading to something that'll give me more control. Should be able to sell my current set up for about £450 and happy to add another £250. Wondering if it's worth the step up to a GX7/A6000/OMD-EM10. I'd probably stick with the kit lens before saving for a decent prime. I use my camera for standard holiday usage and taking shots of my kids both indoor and outdoor. Any help would...
