Lumix G cameras are very similar in operation and you can use the following manuals as a good starting point for other models.
I’ve used micro four thirds cameras for many years, starting with the Lumix G3. I’ve continually developed manuals for the cameras I’ve owned, mainly for friends to use. I’ve not moved on since buying a G80, finding that it has met all my needs, so I’m afraid there are no manuals for the G90 or G9.
The manuals cover shooting stills photographs in RAW format, to get the highest quality. I do this and then post-process using Lightroom and Photoshop.
The most recent versions of the manual for my latest 4 cameras are here:
- Lumix G80 (G85): Lumix G80 / G85 instructions 4.5
- Lumix G7: Lumix G7 instructions 4.5
- Lumix GX7: Lumix GX7 instructions 4.5
- Lumix G6: Lumix G6 instructions 4.5
The manuals for the four cameras are very similar. I believe that I’ve captured the differences between them carefully, but the differences can be subtle. Let me know if I’ve missed something and there are any errors.
I’ve recently moved to using Nikon Z cameras, as I find I can now get the same capability and the same or better quality for the same weight as I have been obtaining with the micro four thirds kit. For example, for travel I now use the Nikon Z 24-200/4-6.3 travel zoom and get the same or better quality as I have been getting with Lumix 12-35/2.8 and 35-100/2.8 lenses. With a Z5 camera the total weight is less than for my G80 and the two f/2.8 lenses, with the improved dynamic range and low light capability of the Z5 making up for the narrower aperture of the Nikon travel zoom. Roughly equivalent quality for travel, but without having to change lenses continually.
