 Post subject: New User with G1
PostPosted: Thu Mar 17, 2011 5:07 pm 
Have had a DMC-G1 Panansonic for a year or so and am still trying to come to terms with it.

In the past I used my trusty Canon EOS which always seemed to do what I wanted with little fiddling from me, I really loved it. The G1 was a very generous gift from my partner and from the offset I have found it really tricky to use, so keep on getting the Canon out - which has started to annoy him!!

The main problem I am getting is really blurry pictures, when I take photos with the Canon in the same conditions they are sharp and blur free but from the G1 even the smallest movement gives a blurred image.

Is there something really obvious I am missing?

Thank you in advance, I am running out of excuses as to why I'm not using it!!

Hi, welcome!
I guess you had stabalized lenses on your Canon? Does your G1 not have an Mega OIS lens?

Yes it has a MEGA OIS and I have switched it to on.

I have noticed that the shutter seems to close quite slowly, but am not sure how to alter it as everything seems automatic.

Just switch that little dial to S position, then roate the front right thumbwheel to a high number, say 500 or 1000...then take a picture...
have fun :lol:
