    Micro 4/3 Olympus PEN-F shutter issue

    Mine too is suffering from similar problems but also I have reset it back to 'factory' specs and it still is happening. I can get it to work by removing and reinserting the battery and doing similar with a lens but then the screen goes black but shows the settings in the bar display at the...

    Sony Worth Considering ? Sony RX1R

    Hi, Is the now 'old' RX1R a good used buy compared to other similar full frame compacts / I currently use a Pen-F with various lenses and wondered if the extra pixels would make a real difference, I don't mind the fixed lens as I feel it would provide me with a different way of looking and being...

    Hi Ray, Thanks for this update, I can wait a while as i hope the cost of a G7X will drop again and become more affordable. I'd like to see / read a comparison test between the Canon and the Fuji X30 . Has anyone done this on any websites you know of ?

    Canon Showcase Canon G7X Image Thread

    Hi Ray, Thanks for your honest views on this camera. it is one I've personally been waiting for to arrive on the market as the RX100 seems to have dominated this group but from all the reviews I've read about it from owners & users it seems to lack 'soul' and was not as well thought out as it...

    Micro 4/3 EPL1 vs. the Stylus 1-- A unscientific comparison

    Hi, I too have this dilemma, I have an EPL-1 Twin lens Zoom kit and am seriously considering an upgrade to either a Stylus 1 ,or something similar, maybe an RX100 (?) to be my everyday camera or going to a more recent m4/3rds model, Oly or Panny ( even pre-owned )? I'm limited to a budget...

    Great images Andy ! I think this is one amazing little camera and very much overlooked by many especially in the reviews I've seen & read about it. However if you look at the very comprehensive and full test / review done by the Imaging Resource you'll learn just how very capable it is. it's on...

    Micro 4/3 Going all retro, Panasonic GF1 with 105mm micro Nikkor

    Hi, Stunning photos ! What adapter did you use to connect the Nikkor lens onto your GF1 ? I'm interested as I'd like to consider using 'older' lenses on my G3 as they are more affordable than new Panasonic ones ! Many thanks.

    Thanks everyone, I'm hoping to try out an XF1 tomorrow, if there are any in stock as none of the local branches of Currys /PCWorld seem to have any ! Doh ! How can you try out any camera to see if you like its handling if there's none about ?

    Panasonic TZ40 ordered

    From the photos posted so far this seems to be a great little camera for everyday use. Is it better overall than the Sony HX20V or the previous TZ30 / 35 ? The touchscreen & other features might just swing the balance Panny's way.......I'm not concerned about WiFi / NFC, GPS or video...

    Micro 4/3 Panasonic GX7 Released today. Whoop!

    Hi everyone, Looks like it could be the best micro 4/3rds yet. Would be good to have a comparison test against the OMD-E5, using the same lenses to really see how they compare. I hope the cost will drop to a more affordable level here in the UK, when its newness has worn off, so I might be...

    Panasonic Is Panasonic giving up on the LX7?

    It will be interesting to see if the price here in the UK drops to the equivalent of that in the USA. Maybe Panasonic can't make up their mind about what to do next since the RX100 appeared on the market and has has an impact on advanced compact cameras generally. The lower price seems to...

    Fuji X10-Adding Optical filters

    Thanks for this info, so a 40.0mm threaded adapter ring works ok on the X10s' 39.5mm size lens thread, despite the 0.5mm size difference. I'll look around for these here in the UK, or the JJC / Fuji lens hood to be able to use a 52mm diameter filter mounting ring from Cokin or similar.
