    Daniel, a very interesting (and brave post for a Lumix Ambassador). As you may recall from our interactions in your blog I was until earlier this year a long time Panasonic m43rds shooter - although a little bit Olympus as well, as my favourite UWA lens was the PRO 7-14/2.8…

    Thank you so much for this. I am updating GH-4's with V 2.4 firmware. I was very uncertain about whether I should install the firmware in order (v 2.5 ; 2.6 etc) but your answer to someone earlier stated not to go backwards - to only install the newest version.…

    Hi Dan, I'm happy with my Micro 4/3 gear (mostly Olympus) in everything except trying to keep moving things in focus. I've pretty much decided that I'll have to keep my Nikon system going just for wildlife -- which is a shame because that Olympus 300 f/4 is one of…

  • Micro Four Thirds Gaining Fans

    I’ve been singing the praises Micro Four Thirds cameras since 2010. I’ve been shooting the LUMIX brand full time since about 2015. But getting other professionals to see the benefits of the Micro Four Thirds system has been a daunting task. That seems to be changing. Marc Newton from The…

  • Lumix Camera Firmware​ Updates

    Panasonic just released new firmware updates to several of their cameras. Those cameras are the Lumix GH5s-GH5-G9-G90-G80-GX9. Unfortunately, the main reason for this update seems to be mostly for making these cameras work seamlessly with the new Leica 10-25mm F/1.7 zoom. That’s a good thing but I was hoping for…
