  1. It was in RAW, many thanks! Still handy to have the extra zoom at times for stills.
  2. Hi there, I thought that this function worked before on my GX80, but currently cannot find a way to change the Ex. Tele Conv. setting from the greyed out "off" to "on". I can adjust the function on movie but not on photo, using standard Lumix lenses like the 14-140 - in any mode setting. Is another setting elsewhere blocking this? Any input appreciated!
  3. thanks for your responses, Thailand does not allow batteries to be mailed here, via ebay or Amazon. The batteries I am talking about are both in camera stores that sell Lumix cameras as well. Everything just costs about 25% more and in the original battery's case, double!
  4. Hi there, I am in Thailand and cannot get spare batteries sent here via Amazon. To buy locally are very expensive, about $90 for an original Panasonic battery for a GX85 (BLG10E). I can however, get a no name battery that has slightly less storage capacity than the genuine brand. But the model I can get for about $25 is BLE9 PP which has been replaced now by the BLE9. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with BLE9 PP, how long it lasts, any issues? Also wondering if there is any word of an updated version of the GX85 coming out any time soon? Such a great camera, looking forward to any tweaks on it.
  5. thanks for posting this, intriguing possibilities to reflect upon. At least its worth a try without too much to lose, given its cheap price.
  6. I have a GX80 too and a Came tv3 way gimbel, but am looking at getting rid of it as I travel alot and it is tiresome to take through airport check-ins and its big plastic case. Even if I take it out in its foam and put it in my backback it adds up to more weight and space. I am looking at alternatives of either a smaller gimbal or these kind of DYI gadgets. How do you find the Movo with regard to minimisation of side to side walking movement when locked in the shoulder mode?
  7. thanks got it working, it was GX80 not 85, duh.
  8. What is the optimum setup for filming using 4K 24p. I guess everyone has different preferences, I would be interested in hearing them and if it is worth getting CineD. thanks!
  9. It seems more compact and portable than the Came TV and much lighter. The Came TV one is double the price of the Zhiyun! I have tried to find comparison reviews of both but no luck. Would be grateful if anyone can find a review. Thanks for your explanation, good to know, I will hang on to the gimbal for a good while yet then!
  10. Thanks for this, good hint - I will have to experiment a bit more and keep an eye out for pistol grips - any suggestions on brands anyone?
  11. Hello, I am wondering if the development of in-body stabilisation technology will eventually supercede gimbals? The reason I ask is that I have bought a Came TV 3-axis gimbal which works very well and opens up new ways of video which tripods do not allow. Although it is relatively light, it is awkward to travel with alot because it comes in a big plastic case like a large tool box. Even though the gimbal is relatively light, the whole box is alot to lug around when flying constantly. I have removed it from the box and just kept it in its foam padding in a suitcase but this also has its risks. So in my bid to travel lighter with less gear, I wonder how a pistol grip under a GH5 is going to stack up against any of the leading 3 axis gimbals? I have a GX85 with 5 axis stabilisation and noticed that hand held pans were not that great. Is that because I may not have optimised settings that well, or lens combination? I am pretty new to all this so any feedback would be appreciated.
  12. Hi there, was wondering if anyone has used this lens on a GX80, GH3, 4 etc - for video? I have just played in a store with it on my GX80 body and it seems superb. (A bit more versatile than the Lumix 12 mm 1.4.) I was just wondering if there are any technical things to watch out for?
  13. Answering my own question here - it seems that the only way to turn off 4K is on the touch screen, not in the menu. Sorted now.
  14. Hi there, quick question as I have a short window of shooting time to sort out settings in my new GX80. I cannot find in the manual or camera menu how to activate "picture size" and "quality" - they are both greyed out. So all the stills I am taking at the moment are set to 4K burst which is a pain - but I also cannot find a way to deactivate that either. Am I missing something really simple here or is there something wrong with the camera? Or is some other setting preventing these settings from being visible? The menu stays the same regardless of whether the dial is set to PASM IA etc. Thanks for your attention!
