G3 operation question and complaint
Feb 3, 2012

I'm a new owner of a G3. I'm working my way through the manual, trying to figure out all the settings and functions.

I was able to figure out how to set one-point focusing (in the middle), but if I try to use any of the Cursor buttons (ISO, WB, etc.) located around the MENU/SET button on the back of the camera, it keeps bringing up the one-point focus screen, asking me to confirm/set it again.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it?

As an aside, the PDF manual for this camera is one of the most poorly written, confusing camera manuals I have yet had the pleasure to read. If I stick with the 4/3s systems and have to select another camera in the future, this will certainly be a factor as to what brand I'll buy.

It is more than upsetting that Panasonic makes a seemingly great camera with lots of features, but doesn't have the decency to give a decent manual with it so you can actually learn make use of it.

David.
