    howdy! disengaging lens from G6 body?

    Howdy folks! Merry Xmas!

    Hope your well.

    Quick question if I may?

    Getting stuck into time lapses & keen to try & disengage the lens to remove aperture flicker. Is that as simple as pressing lens release button & twisting? I see other camera's, you should press & hold DOF button.....but as far as Im aware the G6 doesnt have this DOF button?

    Cheers for thoughts & replies!

    Not sure what you mean by disengaging the lens to reduce flicker? But shooting Manual exposure (keeping the same aperture), will stop flicker.

    Cheers Rob for your reply.....:-)

    I hear that, even with keeping the same aperture, u may get some small flicker from when the lens doesnt quite go back to the exact same aperture for the next shot.....

    so people seem to slightly undo the lens/ automatic settings to ensure this.....by also using the DOF button....but as the G6 doesnt seem to have this button - im wondering if undoing the lens slightly still works?

    Try shooting manual. Undoing the lens slightly will make the lens manual without control of the aperture, a bit risky. Or why not shoot will manual lenses and an adaptor?
    I use Minolta MD Rokkor lenses, 50mm 1.4 & 28mm 2.8

    cheers

    I will try untwisting lens & see what happens

    yeah - manual lens an option I realise. I already have the compact 4/3 lenses that i want/ like (nice & small for our 2 week wilderness trips) & so trying 2 work with those. leica 50mm 1.4 & pana 12-35 2.8...

    are all manual lenses old or can u buy them new? i do have an old analogue manual lense but its 50mm (100mm for 4/3rd's) which is too telephoto...

    think i will try full manual, lens wide open, longer shutter, compare lens engaged & disengaged.

    I will be shooting in s-w tasmania in river gorges where hopefully/ usually it doesnt get too bright so I will hopefully get a fair way before it gets too overexposed?!

    cheers!
