Can any owner/ use say whether the G7 exhibits shutter shock? 

Shutter shock happens with the mechanical shutter within the range of 125-250 shutters. It is absent when using the electronic shutter.

 GX8 and GX85 seem to be the first Lumix cameras not to exhibit this unwanted feature when in mechanical shutter mode.

Yes it does. Still unclear to me whether this is lens or body related. I experienced it with the 14-140mm, the only native M43 lens I own. Electronic shutter gives massive improvement in the aforementioned shutter speed range. Drawbacks are less bit depth (though not sure about that) and distortions on fast moving subjects. Has been working fine though for me.

For video on the G7 I use vintage glass. This reminds me I should test those also with mechanical versus electronic shutter. Should be able to identify the source of the 'shock', no?

Thank you for your replies. I thought the GX8 exhibited huge shutter shock too. That's what I read online.

The 14-140 (the first version especially) is (in)famous for creating shutter shock. Maybe it needs re-programming, or it needs its mechanical parts to be re-worked on. 

I asked cause I was thinking between getting a G7 or a GX85 (or even a Sony, since their pricing is similar to Panasonic's here). Have been without a camera for quite a few months, and I have become restless.

Can video have shutter shock or is it just stills?

Not really. Unlike a physical shutter movement that takes places for stills, during video there is no real shutter movement and the camera captures images by sending power to the sensor for shorter bits. That is the reason for the motion artefacts of rolling shutter in (cmos) sensors that are unable to read the sensor details fast enough due to slowet sensors.

No, I have yet to find one that I can live with size and weight wise. Have been kicking around the idea of the moondog labs 37mm adapter. But that means a bigger beefier gimbal. So for now I'm just letterboxing it. And yes, I know it's not the same thing... Believe me, I know.

But how do you keep it small and light, with single focus, and anamorphic? Better still, how can I keep the brilliant 1DXMk2 DPAF and still do anamorphic? 

Well you could try to win the Lotto!  :grin: With a DSLR you are Very limited to what you can adapt. And none of it is cheap. My Video DSLR days are done because of that very fact.

I know there are a few Nikon to EF adapters around, so might luck out that way on the 1DXMk2. But no AF that I know of. Sort of defeats the purpose of the 1DX!

Hello there,

I have bought a Ninja Flame recorder (follow up from the assasin)

Now i am wondering how it works with the G7:

-How do i go about if i don't want to record the GUI from my g7's screen? I mean i want to see the data on my G7's screen, but i don't want to record it on the atomos.

-And how do i go about with the peaking? Do i just turn of the peaking and use the peaking from the Atomos ninja Flame?

And are there any other tips for somebody who just starts to work with an external recorder and the G7

thanx in front

greetz Lenny
