  • I've now got the FZ1000 with a GF6, 20mm 1.7 and 45mm 1.8 - all fits in one reasonably small bag and will cope with any situation I reckon I'll come up against. If the FZ had a touchscreen it ...
  • IMO the difference in handling is day and night. I was frequently cursing the rear dial on the G6 as I inadvertently pushed the dial instead of just turning it. The twin dials on the G7 are a ...
  • Jack. I've always had really good service from Park and partly thanks to that I have spent more than I dare to think about there over the years! A proper shop with staff who know what they're ...
  • Well as I still hadn't had a reply from Panasonic  to my email I went to the camera shop this afternoon with the G7 and my partially missing number. Showed it them and I have to say the chap ...
  • I'm in the UK and it's clear that other respondents to this thread are in the USA. I'm not sure if there are other UK owners with the problem or indeed owners anywhere else in the world, but the ...
  • Cr*p. Yes it does. Will be on to the retailer (a main Panasonic dealer) tomorrow and report back.
  • Just checked my UK purchased G7 (pre-ordered) and that has the s/n correctly printed on the bottom. So maybe this is just a US problem? Weird but I agree worrying.....
  • E-m10 is a lovely camera but you will have two UI systems and I have always found the panny system more userfriendly. Also I believe each manufacturer does some in body lens corrections for its own ...
  • You can vary the function of both the front and rear dials to change exposure compensation. IMHO, as a former g6 owner who couldn't stand the rear dial it was worth upgrading just to get the twin ...
  • Following this thread with great interest as I'm also comparing my g7 to my fz1000. What  lens are you using on the g7? I bought the 14-140 kit as I  thought it would obviously be the closest ...
  • Thanks for the very useful video. Hope I can get results as good from my g7 which arrived yesterday. Thats some backyard view you have BTW!
  • I agree 100% about the touch screen. With the touch af disabled to stop accidental movement I find the changing the qmenu via the touchscreen excellent. This was actually one reason I bought the ...
  • Now I'm confused - if, as Setter Dog (Jack) suggests, there's some doubt about going direct from v1.0 to v2.1 I'd rather just have v2.0 - but how do I download that version as the Panasonic ...
  • Replied in FZ1000 EVF
    I had the fz200 and now have the fz1000 and IMO the fz1000 is, as you might expect, a world apart from the fz200. Its bigger and brighter so should be easier to see, even with glasses. But I ...
  • Thanks. I did have a quick look before posting here but obviously not carefully enough!
  • Created questions fz1000 firmware
    I'm not very computer literate so please excuse my ignorance. Never done this before but I am going try to update my firmware from v1.0 - do I need to update to v2.0 then again  to v2.1? Or will ...
  • I can assure you that I won't be giving her the opportunity to play with my camera again in the foreseeable future so her questionable talent will remain hidden!
  • Sorted! Panasonic support gave me phone number for UK repair centre and I  spoke to an engineer who talked me through a reset process (more hold these two, press this etc..) and touch wood its all ...
  • Well, I haven't tried the button sequence but I  can confirm that the camera does appear to be in service mode as I  have the "Rom backup" tab showing in the set up menu! I'm well outside my ...
  • Thanks, if she has indeed got the camera into service mode she's  smarter than i thought! The instructions in the threads you gave are not directly applicable to the gf6 but i'll see if i can find ...
