    According to Oly the subject tracking mode birds is in the works for the E-M1X. There are more things to come - in winter time. It would be good start for JIP. But we have to wait till Q1 2021 if their promises will come true.

    It is now mid 2020 and the G9 firmware is 2.1 and the focus problem your work around tried address remains the same. I photograph birds and focusing somewhere else and returning to the bird ( long gone) is too frustrating to live with as it happens way too frequently.…

    Reading your setup....why not using AF-tracking? Works fine on my Oly EM5/EM1 for following planes/ moving birds and bumblebees in macro.... On my Lumix GX8 however the 'focustracking frame' takes the moving object, holds it in focus but refocusing must be done on the ok button wich is very time-consuming....could…

  • Photo Tips from the Field: Camera Packs & Roller Cases

    Years of Carrying Too Much Gear The life of a traveling photographer is unique to say the least. I’ve been doing just that, full-time, since 1981. And though there’s nothing else in life I would rather do, like anything, it has its pros and cons. Schlepping lots of heavy gear…

  • Question from Kent Jakusz

    Kent, unfortunately, I don’t shoot enough video to be able to offer any quality advice. I’m going to copy a friend of mine who is very knowledgeable about the Lumix system with his mainstay being video.
