    Re: The GX7 Thread - Images and Observations

    I haven't seen anything about the GX7 recently, so thought I would post something. This vase is by a window and shows really different colors on different days and time of day. I tried the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 today.

    I am considering the Fuji X-E1, since I have read so much about the Fuji colors, etc. But this little camera does quite well.

    Interesting vase for sure Elliot. Yes, the GX7 is a heck of a camera... just got back a couple of weeks ago from China and the UK. The Gx7 and GH3 were my companions, both on sling straps loaded with the lenses for the day.

    I used the 20mm 1.7 and 7-14mm Lumix on the GX7 most of the time, and the 12-35mm on the GH3. The combination was fantastic, but the GX7 took most of the shots.

    Here are a few samples from the GX7, all hand held JPG out of camera.

    Canton Tower, formerly known as Guangzhou TV Astronomical and Sightseeing Tower and also known as Guangzhou Tower, is a 600m, 1,969 ft tall multi-purpose observation tower in the Haizhu District of Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. In the evening it is part of the Pearl River Light Show.

    GX7 ISO 3200, 1/6 Sec f2.8 12mm Taken from a moving boat!!
    .

    GX7 ISO 1600, 1/60 Sec, f2.8, 32mm


    GX7 ISO 200, 1/400 sec, f8, 11mm


    GX7 ISO 3200. 1/40 Sec, f1.7, 17mm


    GX7 ISO 200, 1/500 Sec, f8. 7mm


    And just for fun, a 180 degree, overhead pano with the GX7 and 7-14mm, out of camera JPG.


    In this fun why not shot, one can view both stained glass windows, the one behind me, and the one at the other end of the cathedral.


    The GX7 is a fun all round camera for travel, and found it to be a very worth while tool and equal to any task I put to it.

    Re: The GX7 Thread - Images and Observations

    Can anyone confirm the max iso when shooting in silent mode? On the GH3 it is 1600. Rumor has it that the GX7 is higher (3200?). Last week I was reminded that there are times when I need as little sound as possible (was shooting a video crew documenting one of our projects) but also need high iso.

    The GX7 will shoot up to 3200 ISO in Silent Mode... I have used S.M. a few times but due to other limitations it is not set to ON very oftern...

    Phil,

    Excellent photos. Where is The Old Bell?

    There is an outside chance (maybe 10%) that I might visit China on business later this year. If you have any more photos posted, I would be interested in seeing them.

    Thanks Elliot, The Old Bell is in Malmesbury, south west UK, north of Bath. Great place to visit.

    Link to the China Pics here... travel pics, not necessariily pro captures..

    We stayed in the Sofitel in Guangzhou, superb 6 star hotel.. around $200 AUD a night, including guest bar, wine, food bar... very good deal.

    Re: The GX7 Thread - Images and Observations

    I recent purchased a RX1 and I am blown away that I can get decent shots shot at ISO 6400 and passable shots at 12800 which allows me to shoot in dark restaurants and inside without a flash. However that is my carry with me camera and my main camera is a Panasonic G5 and I am considering upgrading to a GX7.

    I noted in this this thread that the GX7 can produce photos with good IQ up to ISO 3200. I am considering getting the slow 100-300 lenses and it will probably be necessary to use high ISO's so the shutter speed is high enough to get sharp, movement free photos shooting with the lens extended.

    What are the results when shooting at ISO 6400 and 12800 with the GX7??
    If I upgrade from G5 to the GX7, will there may be a noticable improvement in shooting at higher ISO's?

    Hi Howard, I find the noise not a problem at all, while I rarely shoot at 12,800 the noise is very grainy and cleans up well with ACDSee Pro 7 or Capture One 7 if it is a really important shot.

    Here are 3 shots today with the 100-300mm at the 3 ISO settings you mention, 3200, 6400 and 12,800, plus one from the Gx7 at 25,600

    First 3 with the GH3, second with the GX7

    Hope they help your decision.

    Phil

    GX7

    Phil,

    Thank you. I appreciate the ISO shots with both the camera and lens that I am considering. While I have always try to shoot at the lowest ISO possible, with the a slow long lenses requires a fast shutter speed to insure sharp photos, therefore a key variable is ISO.

    No problem Howard, they were just out of camera JPG, not the best of several, just 3 from the GH3 and 4 from the GX7, focus did not look too great on a couple, but you get the idea.. I have no reservations about using 6400 in a pinch, they clean up fine.

    Hi Phil

    Pleased to hear that you are back home after your long trip. It was good to see you again and I enjoyed our trip to the New Forest and thanks again for the pint of Stowford Press!

    The weather is no better here, in fact it is much worse! Take care.
    Cheers, Dave
