    Micro 4/3 Micro 4/3 samples

    Loving the IQ of my recently acquired GX80, still coming to grips with some of the features, keep forgetting the 4K ability in circumstances where it would be useful. A bit unsure of the ergonomics, the controls fall nicely to hand, but it does feel a bit of a brick! It's also the first camera...

    Micro 4/3 Why can't I love my G5?

    Well. the deed is done, prices fell to a point where I can't see them falling much lower, picked up the GX80 with 12-32 for £350 (with cashback) I think that's half the price at launch. Still working my way through the features, but have been impressed with the little zoom fitted to the GF5...

    Christmas Day ride into the Peak District (UK) though taking advantage of the easy gradient of a converted rail line, Tissington Trail. Playing with the 12-32 lens that came with my new toy. GX80, though fitted to my existing GF5. The bike's the same as in the night photo above, my recently...

    Micro 4/3 Why can't I love my G5?

    Well, I've had a few weeks of navel gazing and visited a couple of camera shops and also reviewed some of my favorite photos taken over the last decade. What sort of surprised me, even though it's something I already knew, is that my favorite photos were not necessarily taken with my favorite...

    Micro 4/3 Why can't I love my G5?

    Thank you all for taking the time to reply, plenty there to mull over. It's made the question clearer, even if the answer seems just as elusive. It's also reassuring to learn others go through the same and hear how they deal with it. I don't think there's been any particularly relevant life...

    Micro 4/3 Why can't I love my G5?

    Apologies for the thinking aloud, but maybe something will come out of it... My camera history over the last 7 or 8 years - LX3 which was my first serious digital camera, traded it in for a GX1 which I really liked but developed multiple faults probably due to being rattled about on a lot of...

    Back in the M 4/3 fold with a GF5 which replaced a faulty GX1, despite it being a simpler body with a lot fewer features I find myself carrying it more so getting more use out of it, maybe size is everythingo_O Skeggy overnight-4 by Paul, on Flickr Skeggy overnight-3 by Paul, on Flickr

    Micro 4/3 Back in the game with a GF5

    My lovely GX1 has developed several faults after too many trips rattling around in a cycle bag, still usable but not ideal. I dithered with the idea of replacing it with something more compact like the LX100, but in the end I like the change of mindset a change of lens can produce. Now I've...

    I seem to be having a hilly Welsh year, two trips in the last couple of months, one cycling the other walking. And just when I'd sort of decided to move away from M 4/3 I find I like it too much... Both GX1 and 20mm 1.7 PH-20 by Paul, on Flickr Gospel Pass Snowdon-1-2 by Paul, on Flickr Snowdon

    Hello again

    Thanks for that, I'll check out both those cameras. I haven't kept up with what's available, once I have something I like I tend to keep it, but then I can spend ages deciding on it's replacement. I quite like the discipline not having an interchangeable lens imposes. I've only ever had one...

    Hello again

    It's been a while :blush: Around 5 years in fact since I received excellent help and information on the Serious Compacts forum, where does the time go! I see there's been some changes. I was seduced away from my lovely LX5 by the bigger is better idea of getting a M4/3 (GX1) and the kit that...

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic GX7 Released today. Whoop!

    No weather sealing, yes I know you can't have everything, but it's the one thing that would change the photos I can take. So, I'm sticking with the GX1 and EVF and a plastic bag.

    Sony Need help deciding..RX100 or new release??

    I tend to get photos I'm happier with when using a camera that I'm familiar with. When I can pick it up and change settings without thinking or searching through menus. Where I understand it's limitation, strengths and weakness. That familiarity is to me worth more than a couple of advantages...

    How many cameras do you currently own?

    There must be something wrong with me, I only have one and only want one! Panny GX1 and three lenses. I am sometimes tempted by a small pocket camera, though the quality of the one on the phone is good enough for the times I'm not carrying the GX1. I find it's sometimes good discipline to work...

    another recommendedation thread

    Another you might consider, though I've no direct experience. The Panasonic GF5 with the 14 - 42 compact lens, currently on offer in a few places right on your price limit, which has to be a bargain as the lens alone sells for £250 and this combination was over £550 a few months ago. The only...

    In the center of Birmingham is a building that looks as fantastical to me as a Cathedral would have looked in the 15th century. It's a place of retail rather than religion, though I'm not sure everyone can tell the difference. It's even more appealing to me as it faces the Gothic St Martins...

    Hello again Hi again. I've been away so long I thought a re introduction was in order. I think I may have lost the plot a bit about a year and a half ago. I was so blown away with the upgrade from my other P&S cameras to the LX5 I wanted to take it even further. After owning three cameras...

    Panasonic LX5 no better than a joe average P&S camera?

    I've had mine about 18 months and been very satisfied with it, I don't have the experience of owning many cameras as some do on here, so my comparisons are against other decent small sensor cameras. And it is a small sensor, there's no getting away from the limitations that imposes. Micro four...

    Waiting for a coach at 5am I popped out the back of the station, stuck my camera on the wall by the river and had a play with the manual settings, more out of boredom than with any sense it's produce anything I'd like. Well I was wrong, this I do like;

    All great, the second one is just stunning. I prefer the original to the Snapseed version, though my preference for landscape is usually simpler processing. Which do you prefer? I'm in the process of planning this years Scotland cycling trip, can't wait.
