That's right, I'm still using a GF1. I bought it 2nd hand around a year ago as the cheapest way into ILCs, and have a had lots of fun learning with it. I know the answer to all 'should I upgrade from x camera to y camera' is always: 'are you  unhappy with x camera? If not, keep it til you're not happy'. I'd like to know if any newer offerings address my issues with the GF1 without removing what I like about it however. I am fine with the resolution, the burst rate, the AF speed, AF points,...

I've been shooting Micro Four thirds for 5 years.  2 Years on a Panasonic GX1, then I switched to a OMD EM5 Mark 1.  All this time I was only shooting photos, and now I'm starting to shoot about 50% Photos 50% videos, so I'm looking for a camera that meets my needs. What I love about M43: Lens size and selection, ibis , portability What I hate about M43: Low light performance What I'm considering: OMD EM1 Mk , GH5, a6500 , a7Rii (or holding out for the next A7 camera).  I've tested all of...

I have been using GR DIGITAL III for the past five years and recently I bought a used DMC-GX1 with a Panasonic 14-42mm PZ zoom lens as my first mirrorless camera. I also bought a Panasonic 20mm f1.7, which I like very much. But I’m not satisfied with the DMC-GX1 and especially I’m not satisfied with the image quality which the PZ lens produces (probably because I owned a GR DIGITAL III). In addition, I realized that I wanted an EVF. Now I’m considering of upgrading my camera and buying a body...

A friend has some old Ai and Ai-S nikkor lenses and wants to use them with his panasonic GX1 (m4/3). I offered to help him order an adapter for the job, but after reading lots I still feel a bit unclear (I'm not very knowledgeable on the topic of cameras). Did I get it right that since these particular lenses have their own aperture rings, and we don't care for any automations, any simple 20€ adapter (with no aperture ring of its own) will do? Does it mean that if I buy an adapter sold as...

Finally got around to using my Panasonic GX1 to take videos. None of the existing software on my PC would see the video files on the camera, so I installed the software PHOTOfunStudio 7.0 HD edition that came with this camera. Upon install I was surprised to learn it's usable only for a 30 day evaluation. I would like to know what PC software others are using to download and process their Lumix type video files. Thanks in advance, -jeff

I love to take photos at night and I am considering upgrading my equipment to hopefully get better results. I am currently using a Panasonic GX1 with a Panasonic 15mm f1.7 lens. I'm considering an upgrade to a Fujifilm X-T10 with a 16mm f1.4 lens.  Do you think I will see an appreciable increase in low light results with this upgrade or should I be thinking of something else?  While a full frame DSLR would be nice it is unlikely I will be able to afford one in the near future. The camera and...

Last night at my regular club meeting I went to use my GH3 and FL500 and the flash would not fire.  Checked the usual culprit (E-shutter), rubbed the contacts with a cloth but all to no avail. I had this problem once before - shortly after visiting White Island (active volcano in NZ) about 14 months ago and believe the corrosive atmosphere probably caused the problem.  (Sister-in-law lost the sole of her shoe....)  A good rub with a little CRC brought it back to life that time and had been...

Hi,I've just bought an Olympus Pen-F and was wondering if anyone had some advice on camera straps.I used to have a GX1 and the standard next strap and tended to find that wearing the camera strap around my neck for 8+ hours surprisingly wasn't the most comfortable.Most of my pictures are taken either on holiday (street), day-trips or family gatherings/events. So when I do use the camera it's typically all day.What I am looking for is a strap that I can wear all day and not hurt my neck, easy...

I plan, probably, to trade in my GX7 on a GX85, with a touch a GAS and for the improved IBIS as much as anything (I'm an oldster who needs whatever camera-holding help I can get in non-tripod situations). I know the GX85 does not ship with a battery charger; the Panasonic expectation, apparently, is that one would prefer charging the battery in camera, saving a bit of gear to carry around, and perhaps because it saves Panasonic an obvious cost for the charger, which had always been provided...

I received a new EM10 Mk2 from amazon yesterday. I was a little worried about high iso banding problem because I want to use it with my 20mm f1.7. After several test shots at iso 1600-6400, I was happy that I didn't see any banding . (I don't really care above 6400 anyway.) However, I noticed the camera rapidly heats up around thumb rest area, and eventually the whole grip felt quite warm. It's not too hot to handle but enough to feel uncomfortable for holding over 15 minutes. At first, I...
