    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new here and I hope someone can help me. I'm a keen amateur who use a Panasonic DMC-G2 camera. I basically love it, but I noticed that when I switch to video mode the viewing angle is far less than in photo mode. At first I thought it is a "by design" thing but I recently watched some sample videos on Youtube that were made with this cam and it seems like others have the same viewing angle than in photo mode.

    Here's an example: Abarth 500 - Lumix G2 video test - YouTube

    I mainly use the kit lens (14-42mm) but recently I bought a Sigma 19mm lens, and I experienced the same behaviour: the video viewing angle is very small. I'm not sure that it should be this way, please somebody give some help.
    Thank you!
