  2. Isn't this old news? I remember the GF10 from ages ago.

    No, this is a new one. New grip and new selfie features and some other bits. I suspect it has the new menu system too, but I can't confirm that yet as I haven't got to use one. I'm waiting for a sample.

    Yes, this it the same one. But the GF10 was only available in Asia and now they made it available elsewhere too.

    Sorry - stand corrected! It is the GF10.

    Seems much less exciting now! :)

  6. That grip does look good though. Would be an improvement on my Sigma 56mm hanging off my GX850 :laugh1:

    What is it with Instagram and coffee? If you don't post about your cuppa you can't possibly be cool - is that right? I drink decaf so need to keep pretty quiet about that!

    IKR?! And it's not even just IGers - all the good photobloggers are guilty as well. As a longtime Seattleite I get coffee obsession and, undoubtedly, I'd commit to doing unsavory things for a cup of Espresso Vivace to teleport to my desk at this very instant. The repetition gets old, but it seems to never go out of style :rolleyes:

    Forget coffee, what is it with Panasonic and their miserable inability to provide simple consistent names for their cameras?

    I've basically given up trying to keep track now, I'm just looking at Olympus releases because that way I can actually tell what I'm buying.

    Agreed. I have no idea why Panasonic insists on having slightly different model numbers in different markets. It makes it very confusing.

    I'm not sure it's addressing anything I would like to upgrade on my gx800. I'd like to have a viewfinder, silent shutter mode, a better control wheel under my thumb, IS.
     
  13. You already have silent shutter mode - it's called electronic shutter. That's how everybody other camera body these days does it.

    I was looking for it in the wrong place (massive Olympus bias in my head) and finally found a "silent mode on" option in the menu. That was a cheap upgrade:)

    The best things in life are those you already had but you didn't realise :)

  16. You can also change it via the shutter mode option (I think you can get to it from a Q-menu), you can select between electronic first curtain, electronic (silent), or automatic (electronic first curtain slower than 1/500s, electronic faster than 1/500s).
