    I love this camera, but it has problems

    I love this camera, it's my favorite but it has problems. Let me start with what I like. The size, and shape are quite good. It's easy to bring this along. I take this camera all over. I also like the colors of the standard picture profile. The colors look fantastic outside, in the sun. Greens, reds, and yellows seem to pop in a pleasing way. The user interface is also quite good. The quick menu has almost everything. I use it a lot. The main menu is also pretty good. The touch screen was integrated well into the user interface and I'm usually able to navigate the menu without the manual. I also like that it's micro four thirds so I can re-use my lens. There are cheap yet good lenses available for this system. The overall collection of features is quite good. I like that it has an EVF, mic jack, and hot shoe. The phone app is pretty good too. But it's not all good. The stabilization sucks. For pictures, you need faster shutter speeds. For videos, you _need_ a tripod or gimbal! The electronic stabilization helps but it's often not good enough (especially for video). The continuous auto focus screws up too much. I'm not bothered too much by the occasional background breathing (I usually don't notice it). But I am bothered when auto focus screws up royally. There have been talking head shots where my face goes out of focus completely for a few seconds even though the I haven't moved. For self-filming you might lose shots because of auto focus. It seems to screw up more when I wear sunglasses. The record limit bothers me. When I see a clip getting close to 10 mins I wrap up the clip sooner than I otherwise would have. This would bother me much more if this were my only camera. The clean HDMI feed is too laggy. I used this camera for a zoom call and the delay was a problem. The delay is about 11 frames with a camlink 4k. It caused us to talk over each other in the video call. The 4k crop bothers me but I didn't notice it till someone pointed it out. Since I keep stabilization turned off it's not as bad. With stabilization, the 4k crop is much bigger problem, however. But since stabilization is bad I end up doing all my videos with a tripod or something. I can see the 4k crop being a deal breaker for a lot of people. The camera doesn't have an analog Remote Shutter Release input. I'm talking about the 2.5 mm remote jack that lets you use an Intervalometer/Timer/Shutter Release unit. Thankfully I'm usually able to make do with the phone app. And the camera lets you set a shutter speed as long as 60 seconds. But some operations are only possible with a remote shutter signal. I can't use this camera for some Astrophotography nor can I take a picture using a bulb mode shutter release. I wish it had 5ghz wifi 6 and a UHS-II SD card slot for when I use the phone app. The slow 2.4 ghz wifi that it has is fine for photos. But for video you need an SD card reader. Thankfully you can get SD card readers for iPhone, and android. But I usually transfer my videos to my computer for editing. Still this would be a nice thing to have. Here are some neutral points: Sometimes the camera feels a little small in my hand. But if it were big enough for my hands I probably wouldn't use it as much. The SD card slot at the bottom hasn't been a problem for me. I use small tripod-plates with this camera and I'm able to open the battery door without removing the tripod plate. To get the most of from this camera you need to connect it to your phone over Bluetooth so that you photos get tagged with their locations. I wish Panasonic would integrate the latest technology from computational photography (I work in computer science research and there are so many ways this camera would be much better if they'd do something fancy with software). At the very least, I'd like to see a mode that takes many exposures, aligns them, averages the pixel values and spits out an image that has less noise and more clarity (this is what iPhones and Pixel-Phones do and it's why high-end phones take better night photos). And I'd like to see those same computational methods applied in video. In conclusion, This is a great walking around camera for people that already own a micro-four-thirds camera. It's limitations would make this an annoying first/only camera. There are lots of ways I wish this camera was better. But I love this camera and I use it more than any other camera I own. It's size is great. I'm happy with the video quality. The colors look good. And it has a nice assortment of features. Overall I love playing with this camera. I look forward to using it every day. I have yet to play with all it's features.

    Excellent for still photos.

    I bought this to replace a camera I dropped (I guess dropping a camera once every 50 years is my quota). I chose this because it had a sensor similar in size to my Nikon DSLR. As others say it has a complicated menu that can be confusing. I don't think the manual is arranged to make it easy to find needed information. There are features that this has that aren't well described. I the short time I've had this I had to reset the menus once since something I did gave the wrong result. One review says that image stabilization isn't very good, especially for videos. If you do a lot of videos, you might want to choose a different camera. I don't make videos and I rely on shutter speed to keep my photos sharp. If you have used lumix cameras before, I would recommend this one. At the price I paid, it is a great camera.

    Beginner can't miss

    I am not a professional photographer so my review will not be too focus on advance functions of G100. My experience with the camera is good, the quality of picture is stunny, it has been set up with various style of picture. So I think it is what the beginner should have.
