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...

I have not been an avid follower of shutter shock threads as it has not previously been an issue for me.  Over a year ago I bought a used GX1 body as a backup and second body for when changing lenses wasn't safe or convenient. With the 9-18 it seems fine, but I also since bought a 12-32 and 35-100 to make a compact kit for travelling super light. I normally shoot A-priority and in bright light have had some great sharp photos, but have also had some pretty fuzzy shots! Indoor shots with flash...

This is really a 'first world problem@ but here goes- I upgraded to mFT from FT early this year. As it happened, I bought an OMD-em10 ( mark 1) body only and an EPL6 kit, just to get the lenses. At the same time i was offered a GX1 secondhand at very good price ( €90) . Since then i have added the Oly 45mm 1.8 and a second-hand Panasonic 20mm 1.7. I am plainning a motorcycle trip next month and i want to take a light travel kit. Originally, I was thinking of the em10 with the kit 14-42mm...

I'm considering this camera as I am looking for something besides my GX1.  How is the AF now on the XT-1 with the latest firmwares?  Is it on par with the XE2 with its latest firmware?  I'm also considering the XE2s.  Does anyone have reason to think that the XE2s may have better AF and tracking capabilities than the XT-1?  Just can't decide between these two cameras, it will come down to AF capability.  I'm going to ditch my micro 4/3 stuff if I enjoy one of the Fuji's enough.  Thanks for...

Purchased a second hand Panasonic GX1 off eBay . Have tried three different memory cards to take pictures . When I try to load pictures into computer , I get the same message that there are no new pictures on the device . Even the in camera memory was declared full after I took two pictures and I would have to buy an HDMI cable to download these pictures . I only paid $128 US + shipping . Is there a reason the price was so low ?Panasonic site says that any Class 4 card will work in the...

When I can carry a backpack, I use a Panasonic G6 and a variety of lenses. When I want a pocketable camera, I carry a Panasonic LF1 or ZS40 (depending on whether I care more about image quality or zoom range). There is a gap in my equipment in that sometimes I can carry a camera that is not pocketable where I don't want anything even as heavy as a G6. My first thought was to get a Panasonic GM5 and pair it with a fast pancake, but the EVF on the GM5 is uncomfortably small. Then it occurred to...

Hi friends. I am on holiday in Krakow, Poland and while my wife was in the clothes stores I was wondering in a huge electronics store called (MediaMarkt). Since 2002, I alwayd had a digital camera in the powershot family, the last ones being the G12 and Gx1, mainly used for wild life and plant(& casually insect) photography, scientific images, travelling and family outings. For this reason the articulated screen is a must in my cameras. I am in Krakov (Poland) for these 3 days and the price...
