Hi I have a GX7 mark 2 which I have been really happy with. I have noticed though that the camera struggles to focus on some subjects which are less than 10cm away. For example I tried to capture the image below but the camera just would not focus on the fungi. I tried manual focus and that didn't make any difference either. Is this a user error on my part or a common issue? thanks

I am new here and trying to find a camera (for less than $650 ideally) that I can take quality pictures with and also utilize for recording video as needed.  I plan on usage being >80% photo taking and <20% video.  I have been recommended to buy the Panasonic Lumix GX7 but not sure if I may be overlooking some great dual use camera's.  I really like the pictures the GX7 takes but want to hear more from anyone that has experience in this price range that is using the photo&video what they...

Hello guys! So I moved from a Rx100 to Rx100 iii to G7X to G7Xii and now to RX100 V as my small camera. I find it easily superior to the Canon aside from two things. First, there is no real faky DOF mode like the Canon for when I want to try something to see if is not too bad. No big deal but just saying...The main issue I noticed when watching comparison videos side by side with the canon is that the RX100 has issues exposing for the face when moving to a backlit area where the canon seems...

Hi there! I have a question that may appear silly but has been in my mind for some time now: I have a Lumix GX7 and I shoot always in RAW and predominantly in A priority. The camera has various settings in the menus (e.g. noise reduction setting, various color settings etc.) Given, as I said that I always shoot RAW and subsequently do some post processing in Lightroom, should I bather about these setting? Do they affect the picture(s) I take? Thanks in advance

I am surprised so far that unlike for all my previous cameras, including Canon GX7, I am unable to find a Half Case for the RX100 V that has a door or even just the cutout for the battery. Specially considering the short battery life.Has anyone had any luck with it? Thanks!

Hi there Somehow my GX7 seems to be slightly shortsighted compared to my GF1. Manual focus lens were not able to reach "real" infinity or past infinity focus, and focus point and distance scale on the lens were also off when used with the GX7. (GF1 never gonna give you up - and is working like ever before =D) focus like indicated on the distance scale and some kind "past" infinity. I wanted to ask if someone has a GX7 and another mft camera and a manual focus lens with distance scale and...

Hello AP folks. I have just ordered my first scope, a Celestron C90 to use with my GX7. I chose that model for a slew of reasons but short of getting into that, i do have a question. I have seen people using barlows on scopes many times but i have never heard if there's an advantage to those vs TC.  Since i will be using this C90 for imaging at times, would it be better to use one or the other? This is also assuming the glass is of equal quality. Are there any other real differences that a...

Looking for the correct T ring for MFT for a telescope. The scope im ordering will have the T ring threads built into the visual adapter so i don't believe i will need the normal spacer T adapter to get proper focusing. AFAIK the only thing i need is the T ring that screws onto the built in threads but im not sure which ring is needed. FYI im looking to order the Celestron C90 and will be using a GX7 now, EM1 later for imaging. If no help here i will ask in AP forums. FYI Here's a video...

Hey there! I have been a huge fan of photography for a while and was wondering if there was any good recommendations for any cameras around the $350 range, older is definitely fine!I was looking at the Panasonic Lumix Gx7 or a Sony A5100 as its a bit older and has adaptability with micro 4/3  or E Mount  so that i could pick up some lens along the way and then look to possibly get a better body eventually.  I also saw the Xiaomi Yi M1 which looks like it has nice specs on paper but ive only...
