I asked a question the other day and got very good answers to that question - but not quite the answer I was looking for!So different question for me - I loved the GH3 and used to use it for work - how is the S1R focussing speed and accuracy (and tracking focus) vs that camera?  If there's at least parity I have my answer I think!Thanks,James --Jameshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/jamestux/

My old brain seems to be slipping.  For the life of me I cannot figure how to use the Digital zoom on my GH3.  What I need to do is bump up the zoom while shouting video. I've been using my old GH3 to video our virtual church services and the 14-140 lens gave me the perfect zoom range for our church, but now they want me to move back 30ft. So I thought I could use a small amount of digital zoom to make up for the increased distance from my subjects.

How can I stop the HDMI output switching off after 5 minutes, without resorting to recording continuously?  Is there a hack that will achieve this?  I want to the use the body as a live camera.  Thanks

Last week on a hunting trip I took some snaps on the fly with my new G9. Used the lens often on my aging GH3. Overall I'm very pleased with all images I took with this combo but I wonder what exactly could cause the willow leaves on the left shore to appear somewhat mushy while they are more defined on the opposite shore.  I was traveling about 20 mph using the e-shutter and all the stabilizing options one handed...(I was operating the boat).  Now I'm not complaining nor am I disappointed in...

I am working up a new rig to record a small music festival. Single camera with a H6 connected to a stereo mic. In the past I used a GH3 for the video recording with the audio fed to the camera from the H6. This year I refreshed the setup with a GH5 and a Ninja V for recording higher quality video. My question is, should I pass the output of the H6 through the GH5 or directly to the Ninja V? A longer path introduces more potential for signal loss and noise. I am going to play with the setup...

Hi. With my camera set for MP4, 1080p, 30 fps and 20Mps the camera shows that I have approx. 27 minutes recording time on a 32GB card. I thought that this was a little low for 32GB. So, out of curiosity, I inserted a 64GB card. The camera still shows a recording time of just over 27 minutes !. ** Can anyone explain to me why this is happening and how I might get it to record for longer in MP4. Note: I definitely do not want to use AVCHD and would rather not use MOV because it has a much...

Hi - I’ve just registered having used this site for excellent browsing and buying advice for a while. I’ve just bought a used GH4 and was about to update the firmware from its current v2.5, but noticed that the recording limit with a 128GB card shows at 2h44 for 4K. On my GH3, the limit shows at 29m59 for the same card. Have I inadvertently bought a GH4R, or is it in some way hacked to eliminate the recording limit? The V Log L profile doesn’t seem to be listed, and the box and paperwork...

I have a Panasonic Lumix GH3 and i'm looking into investing a field camera monitor as my lcd on the lumix gh3 is smashed so that is unable to work, so i was wondering if any of you know any good budget ones and would work with a panasonic gh3 even though will be upgrading it to a new lumix camera. As I have been researching and not getting much luck so far, Hopefully someone here would help out. Regards R.M-S

Hi DPReview MFT community! I've been lurking this forum for the past month going from looking to buy a GH2 to a GH3 to a GH5, no scratch that it's too expensive, to a GH4 to a GX85, to a... needless to say the options were endless and eventually I just had to settle on a camera and try it out myself. My primary concerns were video quality and ease of use as this build would be used for filming fast paced action sports, where speedy setup is essential to getting the right clips. The first lens...
