    I have just picked up a GX1 to compliment my GH2.

    I am fairly familiar with it but something has me confused.

    On the GH2 I have the review screen set up to show the RGB histogram, this is the review not playback screen which I have set at 3 seconds for review
    I cannot seem to replicate this on the GX1. If anyone could confirm if this is possible on the GX1 it would be most helpful

    If you mean the live view screen or as Panasonic calls it the recording screen, yes it is possible:

    [CUSTOM] menu -> [HISTOGRAM] [ON] (page 65 of the manual)

    Now press the [DISP] button on the back of the camera until you see the histogram. (page 37 of the manual)

    Have fun!

    Thanks but that is not what I am looking for. I am wanting to see RGB histogram not live histogram

    Once an image has been taken the Camera shows a preview for a preset amount of time, I am wanting the RGB histogram showing as is does in playback, it does this on my GH2 but haven,t managed it with the GX1

    Sorry, my bad! Just checked and it works the same as on my GH2.
    When in playback, choose the screen with the RGB histogram by pressing [DISP], then go to the [SETUP] menu (spanner) and choose for [AUTO REVIEW] hold.

    Hope this helps :smile:
    Happy Easter!
