Hi all, I have a Panasonic DMC-GX7 and suddenly it went in some sort of boot-loop. When I turn it on, sometimes I briefly see a message with the question to set the clock, and sometimes it directly goes to a grey screen with the message: "please turn camera off and then on again". When I start the camera without the lens, looking at the sensor; I see a horizontal movement of the sensor, but no vertical (but I do not know if that is normal or not...). I have tried another SD-card, another...

Other than the video, the GX7 actually seems to be better than the GX85 - EVF (?), flash sync, shutter speed. But what about the sensor? Surely same/similar IQ as GX85 or G85? IBIS only slightly less effective than GX85? Or am I missing something here? Shutter shock perhaps - but was it hyped or really a serious issue/deal breaker? The lenses I will likely mount will be the 15 mm, 20 mm, 25 f.14, 35-100 f4-5.6. And specifically, what would you say to these offers? Price is a major issue for...

I would love to hear if anyone has compared these 2 for ease of use and image quality? The LX10 gets picked here on the buying guide as well as on the Wirecutter. I don't care that much about 4K video. But that seems to be a big deal on these ratings. So I get worried I should care.  I am looking more at a camera easy to use and better IQ than my iPhone for a trip. I would love to bring something that I can use easily and I won't be fiddling too much.  I like the idea of touch screen...

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!

Also,, is there a difference between the 14-42 3.5-5.6 ii ASPH & OIS lens ? or are they in fact the same lens ? Looking to shot mainly days out / holidays. Church interiors / stained glass,, flowers. Any help / info would be greatly appreciated. Roland. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rolandb52/ ""...

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...
