With your camera's battery well charged, perform the following steps in sequence:
This way you can tell about the usage of the camera. Panasonic doesn't say the expected shutter life, but you probably can consider around 100,000 shutter actuation as guideline. this is a MTBF number, so you can have a camera that will last a million photos or you can have a camera that will last 2000 photos.
Look for any body damage, look for any unusual sign.
look for what comes with the camera vs what is supposed to come. You can find it new, camera, 14-42 lens, with a brand new battery, brand new strap and brand new warranty for less than 500 usd
Take a few pictures, look if it come out sharp.
See if the flipping display have any play.
The price of the camera brand new has come down quite a bit (from 750 to 500), if you watch for these details and can deal with a shorter warranty it is a very good camera.
I am having troubles finding a camera bag and I was wondering if people had a suggestion. I want the bag to be small so that it can easily be carried around disneyworld and fit into the bins on rides. The camera I have is the Panasonic Lumix G7 so the bag will need to fit this camera and a lens. I would also like the bag to be able to be worn as a backpack or slung across my chest.
I don't need a lot of extra room for other accessories so maybe a small pouch or two would suffice. I'm only expecting the bag to be able to hold the camera and lens but if there was just enough room to also hold another small m4/3 lens without making the bag drastically bigger that would be perfect but I'm not holding out for a bag that would fit a second lens while still being very small.
If you are thinking to get a video capable m43 camera in this price range you would better skip any Oly camera and go straight for Panasonic G7. It has the same price and bundled with free Audiotechnica mic($250 value)
I've heard good things about the Panasonic lunix g7 for video. It's at $600 with kit lens on Amazon right now. I have a different m43 camera, and the lens selection for that group is the best of any of the mirrorless systems.
Look over the camera that seems like a really awesome camera. The only negative I really see is the lack of touch screen but the A6000 or D5300 didn't have that anyway. I will be buying a camera before my wedding and honeymoon which will begin on June 27th. I worry that since the camera isn't released yet and doesn't really have any reviews that there could be some negatives to the camera that I wouldn't know until after I bought it. If you could give me some insight on whether or not that is something to worry about, I would really appreciate it. Additionally, the camera takes 16MP pictures and I was wondering if that makes a difference against DSLR cameras or the a6000 which has around 24MP.
Lastly, I was narrowing it down and thinking that a mirrorless was the way to go, but how would the Panasonic G7 compare to the Sony A6000, while using the autofocus points and also while shooting in low light. Also how would the stock lens that it comes with fare shooting pictures in Hawaii? I know that I will have to get a bag, a couple memory cards and a few extra batteries but would I also need to get another lens with it?
Thank you so much for being this camera to my attention, it looks like a really great option that fits my needs. Is this the same Panasonic G7 that you pointed out even though the name is very slightly different.
After doing some more research it looks like the camera does in fact have a touch screen.
Edit x3: (I suck at editing)
Not a Rangefinder (No window to look through in image.)
Based on what I am seeing, getting any silver body with a vented hood is your closest match visually.
Based on where the eye piece is and the way he holds the camera I'd vote, one of the following;
For DSLR; (more photos for charge)
Mirrorless; (smaller, but less photos)
Olympus Stylus 1 or OM-D
Best Bang for Buck;
I'd say the lens is a 35mm
Every month someone asks, "What is the best cheap camera for making amateur porn?"
Right now it is a Panasonic g7. It can be bought for under $500 with a good kit lens. It shoots good 1080p and 4K videos.
Send us a link to the amateur porn you make so we can link to it in turn!!
Is $500 a good price for a new Panasonic G7? I just got a notification from B&H that the price has dropped and it's the same price on Amazon. I have a Nikon D3300 but I really want to start shooting video.
