  • 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 ...
  • Created questions Panasonic GF6 error message
    My little granddaughter (just 5) has obviously seen me pressing various buttons on the camera whilst taking photographs - unfortunately she had a go herself when I put the camera down briefly ...
  • Thanks Stuart for your fast and helpful reply. I hadn't thought about the fz200, but that could be an ideal solution and certainly is another option to consider. Spoilt for choice!
  • Created questions fz1000 or tz70?
    I have a friend (only a casual snapper, family, holidays etc) who is  looking for a superzoom. He has seen and tried my fz1000 but is a bit put off by the size. He's also seen info about the new ...
  • Created questions lost usb cable X30
    A very simple question but I'm not very technical and don't want to make a potentially damaging mistake! I've somehow lost the usb cable that came with my X30. Can I just get a standard micro usb ...
  • Thank you. I clearly should have read the manual more closely!! .
  • Just picked up a mint used X30 with allegedly very low shutter count but can't find anything in the manual/menus about file numbering or resetting. This was always easy on my Panny/Oly cameras. Any ...
  • Replied in Yup
    I phoned the helpline today and they are apparently awaiting more stock of the freebies due to the high demand, surprise surprise. They hope to get at least some in next week, otherwise it will ...
