    I just bought refurbished G5.
    Please let me know how to read the shutter count on Lumix G5 or how to access hidden menu?
    Thanks

    With your camera's battery well charged, perform the following steps in sequence:
    Select single shot mode;
    Put mode dial into auto;
    Insert a memory card into the card slot;
    Turn the camera ON and take a picture;
    Turn the camera OFF;
    Press and hold simultaneously the DISPLAY, AF/AE LOCK, and RIGHT ARROW buttons, while turning the camera ON;
    Now, press and hold the AF/AE LOCK button together with the MENU/SET and LEFT ARROW buttons;
    Repeat the last step, that is press and hold the AF/AE LOCK button while pressing the MENU/SET and LEFT ARROW buttons. A two-page operation history display will appear;
    Press DISPLAY to toggle between the two information menus;
    Write down the number next to PWRCNT. This is how many times the camera has been powered up;
    Write down the number next to SHTCNT. This is the shutter activation count;
    Write down the number next to STBCNT. This is the number of times the flash has fired;
    Switch the camera off to revert back to normal operating mode.
