  1. Need advice on which zoom lens to get with GH5 out of  Panasonic 12-35, Panasonic 12-60 or Leica 12-60. I am looking to also get Sigma 18-35 with speedbooster.

    I have the 14-140mm and Panasonic Leica 25mm, but wanted a weather sealed walk around/everyday lens that is weather proof to complement the British weather :)

    Any advice, recommendations and anecdotes based on real world use welcome




  2. Has anyone had any experiences  good/bad or can recommend a 3-axis gimbal for my Iphone. Love the idea of the gimbals but wanted to see how much I would use it before upgrading to a DSLR one so thought I would dip my toe in the water with a iphone one.

    Looking at -

    zhiyun z1 smooth c

    Lanparte hhg-01

    Ikan Fly-X3

    As these seem to be the most prevalent, does anyone know of any new ones on the horizon that may be worth waiting for?

    All advice greatly received 



  3. Starting to see quite a few on cam LED lights when I go to expos and festivals. Are these dslr hotshoe add-ons indispensable or a waste of money. Thoughts please? If you do you use them any tips or situations/scenarios you would recommend using them.

    thank you 

  4. I have a GH4 and EM5ii with Panasonic lenses 12-35, 14-140 and Leica 25, all with 58mm threads so I could use the filter on all of them. Based on experience. What filter would people recommend to make the lens/camera combinations mentioned look more filmic and easier to grade and less digital?

    All advice greatly received

    Thanx B.

  5. Hi, I am looking to add stabilisation/gimbal type shots to my family movies, to follow the kids riding bikes and running around etc. Dont want to spend a small fortune so was looking at the DJI Osmo or a  3-axis gimbal (Fei-yu / Ikan) to use with my Iphone 6S, or possibly even a Olympus EM5ii as I have friend selling one at roughly the same price as a Osmo.

    What would you learned Ladies and Gentlemen on the forum recommend?

    I would but cutting the footage with my GH4



  6. Hi Andrew,

    you mentioned you are shooting a tweaked stills picture profile to match the look of Fuji Velvia on the X-T1.

     "I’m shooting on one of the stills picture profile which I tweaked to match the look of Fuji Velvia on the X-T1. I am enjoying the colours out of this camera, once white balance is tweaked to get rid of the bias towards a green tint."

    Could you please share these settings as I would love to try them?




  7. Hi, I live in the UK where we don't see much sun :) so my questions is do I still need one if not shooting in bright sun light all the the time. Also my brightest lens currently is the Panasonic 12-35 2.8 so again would I need one with shutter at 1/50.


    Lastly is their ever a need to use a variable ND indoors or is it strictly for bight sunlight?


    All words of wisdom greatly appreciated.
