I was trying use a remote switch DMW-RS1 compatible cable release to fire my G80 but no success. I have previously used this release on GX7, G7 and GH2. Has anyone successfully used a remote cable on G80/G85? Is there a change in specification?

Hi all, excuse my ignorance but I'm new to this. I've a Sigma 70-300 gd Nikon fit lens, which I want to attach to my GX7. I know there are adapters out there but which do I go for fit-wise?  Would it be a Nikon fit, or a Sigma fit, or am i being dense??? Many thanks

TL;DR How do you get at dust when it's below the AA filter (within the sensor area)? Greetings all,  I received my GH5 last week, immediately attached my Metabones Speed Booster and lens and had not removed it since (no reason to, it's my only lens arrangement). I was taking the first outdoor shots today and left my ND filter at home, so after I cranked the aperture up to f/8 and higher, I saw a particle of dust in the upper right of the frame. No problem, just needs to be blown off. When I...

Quick questions regarding lumix cameras and lenses: 1. I keep finding a lot of videos on youtube talking about how you don't need to get the "specific" m43 adapter for your camera because it's basically a one-size-fits-all type of thing. Is this true? I've learned that my brother also has an old PENTAX film camera with what I've read to be a pretty good lens, an SMC Pentax A F2, so I was wondering if I might be able to use it. I'm currently borrowing a Lumix GF-2 from a friend so I can learn...

My Panasonic Lumix GX7 has an ugly white smear across the right-hand side of the electronic viewfinder. It is particularly distracting when taking low-light shots (I mainly shoot astro) and thankfully does not appear in the images. I have posted a couple of photos of the blob taken with my cell-phone pointed into the EVF Does anyone have any idea what may have caused this and if it is worth fixing? ( the camera is out of warranty unfortunately). The camera is always kept in a bag and I have...

I am looking to buy either the Sony DSC-RX 100 III/IV/V or the Canon Gx7 Mark II for underwater photography using a Fantasea or Ikolite housing. The Canon has a convenient underwater white balance setting and also custom white balance settings when the former doesn't work well. The Sony does not have a designated underwater white balance setting. I know that I can shoot RAW and then tweak the white balance but I prefer to just shoot JPG. Does the auto white balance on the Sony detect that the...

I just got a new GX85 and it's very nice except for the small, hard, shallow eyecup. I've searched online and find nothing in the way of a replacement or add-on or upgrade.  Does anyone know of one, its number and where it is found? I know that there's a DMW-EC3 for the GX8, and a DMW-EC1 for the GX7.  Would either of these fit if there's no dedicated model for the GX85? Thanks for any leads.

Hi, I saw many questions and discussions about the olympus flashes on Panasonic body, but yet none seem to correspond to my problem.... I have the Olympus Fl50-R and I used to mount it on my loyal Lumix GX7 Looks wrong but for using it years before it's compatible  I used it like a year ago and then started to experiment some fast primes so I kept the flash away for a time. But one day I ordered new batteries for it (Eneloop ones) triggered the flash unmounted, seemed to work fine, reload...

So even though my GX7 is fairly low mileage, it's also missing a lot of features i would love to use. I knew this going in of course but i just wanted something decent as an entry body. Still, im looking forward to my eventual upgrade and am debating a few bodies. The GX8 has been on my radar for a while as it's, spiritually, very similar to a GX7 but with new tech goodies. But now the EM1.2 is here and the Mark 1 is much cheaper and it has quite a good feature set. So as it stands, the EM1...
