I second the Kirk brackets as I have two of them for different camera makes. The advantage I think for the L Brackets is when you shoot portrait mode the weight of the camera is over the head not pulling off the side. Is your tripod/head setup Arca Swiss compatable?

You can cheap and rely on comments as to the fit and how well you have access to all of openings on the camera in particular the battery, card slots and the I/O ports. Or go expensive $75-$100 and get one specific to your model. Checkout Sunwayfoto brackets they are in the middle range $50-60.

I have a MFT system for the same reason - easily portable. I've owned the GX7 and now have the GX8. I bought the body with two primes; 20mm f1.7 and 45mm f2.8. I expanded the kit with a 12-35mm, 35-100mm and a 100-300mm all f2.8. I can fit most of this gear in a small shoulder bag that doesn't scream "camera equipment inside" and if I'm hiking in for more than 5 miles this is the way to go. I have a lightweight, compact travel tripod with a Markins ball head. If I load all the gear, add filters, the tripod, water and snacks my pack is close to 20 pounds about half of what I have for my full frame camera.

If you truly are looking for a camera to slip in your pocket not a bad choice. I have an earlier version of this and it was a 20mp camera with Ziess lens just not the tele this one has.

I use the Panasonic GX-8 for a lightweight travel kit. I like that it has a viewfinder and an articulated rear LCD. It is MFT and you can get really nice lenses instead of the kit lens. The 20mm is f1.7, the 12-35 and 35-100 f2.8 and the tele zoom is f4. The better lenses are not inexpensive but compared to the cost of full frame or medium format lenses you almost get my for the cost of one MF lens. Everything fits in the sholder bag along with an iPad mini. It doesn't scream out "look here for camera equipment. What I like about the Panasonic is you can shop other MFT lenses say from Olympus.

I have two L brackets, one for my K-1 and one for my X1D. Custom brackets are more expensive but they won't block access to the card slots, outputs or battery. If you have a generic one it could be frustrating have to remove it when you need access to the camera. I have a Manfrotto tripod and bought an arca-swiss compatible ball head for it. The L brackets make switching from horizontal to vertical (portrait) easy. I shoot panos in the vertical and with the L bracket the camera is centered above the ball head not hanging off the side.

Great shot. Have fun.

I like the geometry also. Did you try a 1x1 crop to drive the geometry further?

The K-1 is a great camera and I have been shooting with it since it came out. For action as mentioned it can shoot 4-5 jpg images per second or you set the crop factor to ASP-C and shoot about 6-7 frames a second. So for shooting action occasionally it's fine for me but not a dedicated sports camera. Landscape, portraits, night time you name it is a very capable camera especially with the new full frame lens. The new K-1 MKII is due out any day now and it improves on many of the features of the K-1 especially with the pixel shift that can generate 41 megapixel images and is supposed to improve on the quality and detail in the pixel shift images.

I do use a Mac and you do not have to scroll down to the feather line it should be right below the basic effects panel. Maybe is different on a PC?? All of the panels below are part of the regular Develop module. But once you click invert checkbox the effects you want takes place only inside the filter. I have provide a Mac screen shot. Hope this helps

There is a check box button on the right side menu that reverses the effect and makes it on the inside of the filter. The box is called invert. Hope this helps because it is a great tool tool

I have had the K-1 for a year and love it. The pixel shift technology delivers stunning landscapes at ~40 megapixels ( like the newer 15-30mm) plus get shake reduction and the AA filter simulator. The K-1 uses a Sony sensor and is the same one in Nikon 810 ( I think)

Yes. I have the mirrorless X1D and really like it. The images are great and very film like.
