I already have one Lumix cable 60 bucs and some Vello radio triggers and their assorted cable in my workshop. But I was thinking that I need to figure out a simple way to get one push to focus and then release the mini plug on each GX7. Remotes are accessible. So I make a siamese twin device that is electrically tied together and easy with little or no soldering thanks. No, I do not expect millisecond synch. Still at the experimental stage with this fine GX 7 and its mate and the equally fine...
The eyecup on my G7 allows too much light leakage when shooting outdoors. I'm looking for something that will seal better. It seems that Panasonic made larger eyecups for the GX7 (DMW-EC1) and GX8 (DMW-EC3) but it looks like those wouldn't fit (has anyone tried?). Anyone have a good solution?

Hiya, now that I have purchased the 15mm 1.7, I would like to get back to street photography but I have a nagging issue with the GX7: the eye sensor switch is too slow and I don't seem to find a setting in which the EVF remains permanently on. Am I missing something? Basically I want to be able to see something in the street -> raise my GX7 to my eye -> snap right away! But the delay in the EVF display coming too late to life has me want very badly for a way to keep it on permanently, even at...
Hi! I own since 1,5 years a Samsung NX30. I've travelled a lot and used it frequently, and overall i'm quite happy with it. 2 reasons that make me think of changing it: somehow bigger as I would prefer while travelling (doubting sometimes if taking it with me or not), and the news about the NX discontinued (not confirmed yet) As it is in perfect conditions, I was thinking on selling it and going for a more compact mirrorless. - Would like: smaller size as NX30, very good IQ (jpeg+video), EVF...
Best normal/wide lens for EM1: PL 15/1.7 or Oly 17/1.8 for street/event/low light (GX7 as 2nd body)?

Dear all, I know that there are bazillions PL 15/1.7 vs Oly 17/1.8 on the net, and I've probably read most of them. I already have the 20/1.7 (lovely field of view and optic performance, useless AF) and don't want to use a 25mm, which I find too narrow. It's really between the PL15/1.7 and the Oly 17/1.8 ;) I would love it if those of you who own an EM-1 and have tried both of these lenses could tell me how they compare in terms of Af speed, low light AF, light gathering, practicality and,...
Hi there! This is going to probably seem like a really silly question but... Why should I buy a Panasonic GH3? I'm an aspiring film student looking for my first camera and was originally looking at the GH3, until I found the gx7. It just seems better in just about every way even though it's primarily a photography camera... am I missing something here? I am aware the gx7 is primarily used for photography but it seems to be better with video as well, I love photography so the fact that it's...
Tried the Pany board but was advised to try here. Bought myself a GX7 to try the mirrorless route but I'm astounded (or wrong!) to find that Panasonic hasn't made an effective case for the camera. I thought this "Panasonic DMW-CGK22XEK" leather case was going to be a winner but it's awful! It simply doesn't fit the camera. It would probably fare better with a pancake lens (I have the 14-42mm kit lens) but even then, the eyepiece is still an issue. I already have a decent camera bag but I want...
