    Just being pedantic for a moment, 8192 x 4320 is 32 megapixels, which is four times the resolution of 4096 x 2160 (8 megapixels), not double the resolution.

    Switching pedantic mode off now...

    FWIW, I have a GH3 and an Ikan 7-inch display. Sometimes, the Ikan shows what's on the GH3 and sometimes it doesn't. The Ikan always works with other source devices (DVD player, for example) and the...

    I wouldn't mind going that route, but it will be more expensive than $158 to get a GH4 body that's in good shape. And the GH3 will mostly be for a backup photography camera, not so much for video....

    I called that number, but there is no indication that it has anything to do with Panasonic or any company that does camera repairs. All I got was a message that said "Leave a message after the beep."...

    I appreciate the help, but my e-mail to that address bounced back with a "Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address." Can you check the address?

  6. GH3 Getting my camera repaired -- any recommendations?

    I have a GH3 that I used for a few years. The hotshoe became loose (which I understand is a complaint about the GH3), then the camera completely stopped working. I did a little looking around online,...

    I thought about the XLR adapter and may want to get one someday. One problem is that the XLR adapter costs more ($400) than the microphone I'm thinking about ($250). The XLR adapter also adds bulk...

    GH5 GH5 audio input level

    As far as I can figure out from the GH5's specs, the 3.5mm audio input is mic level, not line level. I'm looking at a new wireless mic setup, and the output of the receiver is line level -- and it's...

    Finally finished a short film... sort of

    For more than 2 years, I've been working on a short film called "Rendezvous." It was written by Seth Kozak, and when I met Seth in 2017, he had about 2/3s of the film shot. Nothing had been done on...

    Bingo... that was it. Not sure how it got there, but everything worked fine once I turned VFR off. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    No, touching the screen when the camera is in video mode has no effect. In photo modes, touching the screen will put a focus box on the screen and do a focus. But in video mode, the camera is in...

    It will not focus in video in single-point mode (AFS). I seldom use AFC. When I'm in video mode, my GH5 is manual focus only; as soon as I switch to a photo mode, autofocus works.

    GH5 GH5 has auto focus for photos but not video

    Suddenly, the autofocus on my GH5 will not work for videos. It works fine for photos, but not for videos. I've tried different lenses, but the same result: Autofocus works for photos but not for...

    The farther the subject is from the background, the easier it is to prevent light from falling on the background. So the bigger the space, the better. You could even possibly do it at night outside,...

    My suggestion was to adjust the exposure on the fly, using the GH5's convenient exposure button. I do not know if you can control the ISO on the fly.

    I use the easy-to-reach exposure button on the GH5, which makes it really easy to adjust the exposure. Obviously, if you are concerned about blown-out highlights, reduce the exposure. I've discovered...

    I have both the 12-35 Mk I and 35-100 Mk I Panasonic lenses, and the 35-100 has terrible micro-jitters. Even after updating it to the latest firmware, it's still too jittery for handheld video --...

    If you use MP4 or AVCHD video modes on the GH5, it will record 1080p at lower data rates -- I just did a client video in 1080p and shot it at in MP4 mode (not MP4 LPCM) at 30fps at 20 Mbps. The...

    I have both a GH5 and a Panasonic GX8. The GH5 is a better video and photo camera, but the tilting EVF on the GX8 is an ergonomic wonder. If the GH6 was exactly like the GH5 but included a GX8-style...

    Yes, I have the 14-140 ver. 2 (part number H-FS14140). It gets a LOT of use, and is surprisingly stable for handheld work of things like butterflies and bees.
