FZ1000 Focus controls & settings
Sep 2, 2014

I find that there are quite a few setting options for this camera that I'm not familiar with.  I did find out how to lock the focus with half depression of the shutter button but as I move the camera to re-compose the picture even after I have lock the focus the exposure setting changes,...and of course I did not intend that.   Where is the setting that controls this.

The number of new settings and controls is going to take a long time to learn (and Remember).  One other question,...what are the advantages and difference the mechanical shutter and Electrical shutter.  Of course the Elect shutter can take you all the way up to 16,000 while the mechanical is limited to 1/4000s, but why would I use one over the other.

Years ago when I got my FZ35 I found a link to Seattle PC Service.   A guy there had created a 6 page condensed version of the complete Owners manual for that camera.  It was THE COMPLETE SHORTCUT to find all the answers on how to operate the FZ35.   Has anyone ever heard of such a document for the FZ100, FZ200, or now the FZ1000.
