    Exactly my thought - there's a small battery, but it's hard to access (about 6 levels in in the service manual - on or near the audio board from memory) and needs to be replaced and soldered in....

    I have a G7 ad mostly really like it - as a cut-down traveling option (I have a GH4 I use mostly for work.) Since size, weight and price were factors - and I didn't especially need IBIS - it was an...

    GH4 GH4 and G7 matching

    Happily shooting on a gh4 for about 18 months. Recently - since a couple of GH1s both died suddenly - bought a G7 to have a matching camera. On the whole, I really like it. And for the most part,...

    GH1 GH1s died within a week

    Hi - I've got two hacked GH1s. They both died within a week, after years of good service. I have a gh4 (and more recently a g7) so don't immediately need them. But the footage they took was good in a...

    For event recording and low-light capability I've heard very good things about the sony hvr-s270. Pro: good shoulder-mount form; good in low light; takes long tapes; can also record to CF cards-...

    I had something like this once, and couldn't get much joy out of "audiosuite" tools. But I exported the whole track, and imported it into audacity- which is a free downloadable sound app. It has a...

    Hi- interesting to hear. I'm still worried about the focus: can't carry a monitor everywhere. I guess I need to drive an hpx for a day, and see how bad the viewfinder/histogram comba are for what I'm...

    Yeah, I gather. Panasonic NZ are not keen to rebate.
    But it's nutty that I could take a free trip to New York to buy one- and have change.
    (The NZ listed price is a little over NZ$17.5K- at the...

    I like it!
    I need to shoot something like this, and I'm wondering how you did it. My dvx will not automatically shoot single frames- you can do it manually (using the remote) or set it up to shoot a...

    Hi Kit- thanks for the tests and comments on this.
    Budgetwise, I guess I'm in a slightly different position, working for an institution where I have a one-off budget to spend, and am unlikely to be...

    There are such conflicting stories on this, it's making my head spin. I'm looking at it from all angles, and I still feel I'll be taking a risk either way. A GOOD bit of 2/3" glass will last a lot...

    Hi- just for my information, I'm looking at slightly different prices on an HPX500 and an HPX555. I gather they are essentially the same camera- possibly with different names for different markets....

    Hows the YJ lens looking? I read here that someone had tried one and been unsatisfied.
    What is your older lens? I've got an older "A" series fujinon that others here have rated as pretty good: I've...

    This thread is where someone has tried a yj18x9 (the lens I've got) on a 500- and been disappointed. When I get the cam, I'll try it too!
    I think it's also worth noting, as someone has above, that...

    Nice pictures. HD is a lovely thing for us camera-fiends.
    I'm looking forward to getting into it. I'll order my cam very soon. I have a similar lens.

    I've got one of these lenses as well- it's the newest one I own. But they don't seem to be well-suited. I've got 2 older 2/3" J series canons and an A series Fujinon that I'm going to try, however.

    Watching this with GREAT interest. I'm looking at an HPX500 in the near future, but I don't want to have to spring for a lens- especially as I have 4 2/3" SD lenses.
    From the other thread, it seems...

    yeah, I'm wondering too.
    the canopus "neo" forum is also a masoleum.
    just bought a version and I'm feeling like a visitor from another galaxy who's arrived post apocalypse.
