  1. Thanks everyone for your feedback. I've got a very good deal for a GX80 with the 20mm and 12-32mm pancakes and I'm very happy with my choice. Now let's see what I can do with it :)
  2. Dear Electric God, have you found something that could help you make miracles for all of us here below ? :)
  3. Thanks for your advice. I've read about that button on the Olympus. Correct me if I'm wrong but I guess it's a 2x digital zoom/crop that I can do myself in post with any 4K footage if I edit in Full HD. The Olympus beeing bigger and more expensive than the GX80/85 (even if it has better audio), I think my preference goes to the latter. And I think I can also eliminate the Sony RX100 IV. Although it looks very good for stills and 1080 slo-mo, I'm not sure I can play a lot with the depht of field with such a tiny sensor, especially in day light with these in-body ND filters. My dilemma : LX100 with no stabilization but fast tiny zoom lens and good audio / or stabilized GX80/85 with bad audio and 2 tiny lenses : slow 12-32mm kit lens (f3.5-5.6) + fast 20mm f1.7 pancake. Very, very difficult choice for me.
  4. Thanks a lot for your help. Yes, I tend to exclude the Canons because of the video. If you're mainly stills oriented, what made you chose the RX100 over the LX100? Is it the size? the fact it has built-in ND filters? Tilt screen? 1080p slo-mo and stabilization?
  5. Yes, I forgot about that. This is obviously why this lens can be that small. Still it's way more interesting than a 1" sensor. I love my NX1 for work and I'm sure the NX500 is great but it's not what I'm looking for. It combines what I don't want on the 3 other cameras : big lenses (even bigger with APS-C) and no serious stabilization. Thanks for your suggestions. Yes, very very nice pictures. The lack of stabilization is not a problem on certain sequences but it does put some limits. Some would say those limits boost their creativity... It can be true but when I see the beautiful stabilization on the GX80 and the Olympus, it's a bit frustrating not having it on this little piece of technology.
  6. Thank you, it helps me, even if I'm really torn. I already had the 14-140 and 20 f1.7 with my GH2. It was a very nice combo but today I need something else. I'd like not having to switch lenses, and the 12-32 looks great but slow. The closest comparison with the Lx100 lens would be the Lumix X Vario 12-35 mm f/2,8. Great lens but expensive and not what I call pocketable. I know my research is a little bit paradoxal with the nature of the M4/3 system, but when I discovered the compactness and polyvalence of the Lx100, I just fell in love. A compact with a M4/3 sensor. Although it doesn't look as easy to use as the 2 other cameras, the only thing that bugs me is the lack of a good stabilisation. This camera is so unique. How could they build such a fast zoom lens in so little space? This is something I don't understand. And why don't we see other examples of that today, 6 years after its release? All the fast M4/3 zoom lenses are so huge compared to that one...
  7. Hi everyone, I'm thinking about buying an everyday camera and I'd like to have your thoughts and advice. I've been a happy NX1 user for a few years now but my setup is very heavy (16-50S, Ronin S) and I'm looking for a second camera I could carry easily with me everyday and on travel. Something light for some run and gun shooting, fast lens, good 4K, nice for stills too. First I wanted a pocket camera like the RX100 IV but I think the 1" sensor is not for me. I've been a GH2 user a long time ago and I loved the M4/3 format so I think it would be a very good way to go. There are 3 cameras that have caught my attention. They all are a few years old : - Lumix Lx100 (1st version) : Very small camera, almost pocketable. The lens looks wonderful. Possible to mount ND filters. Great 4k with just a slight crop. Good photo. The perfect camera for what I need, but one big down : no IBIS. - Lumix GX80/85 : Everything great, excellent IBIS. One big downside for me : The 2 kit lenses are beautiful zoom pancakes but are not fast at all. I'd like a fast zoom lens but those are too expensive and way too big for my use. - Olympus E-M10 III : Very close to the GX80, although a bit bigger, no crop in 4K, great IBIS, but same problem with the lenses. What do you guys think of my request? What compromise do you think I should do? Is the LX100 optical stabilisation that bad? Any other camera to suggest me? Thanks for your help.
  8. The thing is I like this way of shooting... I guess that's why I call it "smooth" handheld , so I know I will have some jello effect if I buy this camera. My question is, is it worth it for me to buy the a6300 if I rely on the Première Pro RS repair tool? Is this tool good enough for this kind of use?
  9. Great AF for this kind of shooting. This video is also a good example of how the rolling shutter behaves while shooting smooth handheld. Discrete but real issues : even when the buldings dont bend too much, you can feel the jello effect. Is it possible to eliminate that kind of weird jello feeling in post with the Premiere tool? I think I never had that problem with my GH2 and Z5 so I've never used that correction tool.
  10. Hi guys, my first post here after having been reading you quite often recently with a lot of interest. This camera looks very very good to me on almost every aspect. The one thing that scares me the most is the rolling shutter issue. It's obvious in the last shot of the video above. My question is, what do you guys think of the use of the "rolling shutter repair" tool in Premiere Pro CS6? Do you think it will be useful in most shooting situations with the a6300? What about handheld footage? Will it stay natural after being corrected? Thanks to everyone in this thread.
