David 247: Sounds helpful and interesting. Glad to see that the FZ1000 wasn't forgotten with all the new stuff.

Format your SD card in the FZ1000 first, then connect the card to your computer or card reader, right clik the update file and send it to your SD card, remove and insert card back to FZ1000 and follow the update procedure, worked for me that way no probs!

Joe Tam: I read the FZ-1000 at 300mm+ becomes fuzzy. Can anyone confirm if this is true. I am planning on getting this camera for long lens shots and want to avoid the kind of softness I get on my 100-300mm Panasonic at the long end. Thanks.

Nope, mines ok there!

Luke Suth: Do any users of this camera notice the image shift when zooming out and coming to the stopping point of the widest zoom available? I notice it on mine and it persists no matter what mode I'm shooting in. The image shift becomes very noticeable when the power O.I.S. is disabled and on a tripod. I'm not sure if mine is defective and would value other users' feedback on this.

Nope, mines ok there!

EcoPix: The more I use the FZ-1000, the more I'm convinced it's the mirrorless body Canon and Nikon should have made for their lens systems but didn't.

Imagine this with an APS-c sensor and an EF mount. Or a DX sensor and F-mount. A big percentage of SLR users would add it as a body that's better integrated into video use than an SLR. They'd have sold millions.

Instead of that Canikon mucked around with odd-ball things for restricted markets, and Panasonic has had to do the sensible thing instead. But to accommodate a compact do-everything fixed lens, it needed a small sensor, which is a bit too rough for bigger print sizes in stills.

So we have a somewhat compromised version of a Canikon mirrorless body, with it's own lens. But it still complements Canon or Nikon SLR gear quite well. I'd call it the first non-fiddly mirrorless body that handles like an SLR and doesn't require Canikon users to invest in an expensive duplicate lens system.

A3 is more than big enough for me and the FZ1000 can achieve this no probs, also it can hold its own against the APS-C format easily, this is the future, DSLRs will soon be a specialist item in a few years, this camera kicks the butt off the old Canon 60d and 28-250 Sigma lens i had, got rid of them on E-Bay when i purchased the FZ1000, its also lighter and far more convenient than an SLR.

ajadwin: Does anyone else have a problem with the audible humming noise?

I found it to be very annoying, and I really didn't like it humming over my indoor video. It's quite audible on scenes that should be quiet, with no zooming or focusing and certainly no wind. I wondered if maybe the DPR test camera didn't have the noise, since they make no mention of it. But their sample video inside the bar has it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS7a4F3aiYU

That video sounds as if the camera was out on a busy street, not indoors.

I know about the noise, but i use a Rode stereo video-mic pro, so it is not a problem for me, i know it can be for some, however, this is a camera that demands the best and for serious video work like i do i would never use any camera mic whatsoever, there is another thread somewhere regarding this noise and workarounds.

Marc Trotter: Does this not have an "auto" mode for people who want to use it as a point and shoot? Looking for a travel zoom for my daughter, who would like to take advantage of the larger sensor and image quality, but probably will not want to spend much time on all the settings. Thanks.

It `has` got an auto mode, its called `IA`mode, read the review or download the manual for it, before jumping to conclusions.

In reply to:

ttran88: The biggest problem with this camera is its sensor, will it be relevant 2-5 yrs down the road since it'll probably take Canon that long to get an update out the door. With today's sensor technology its becoming hard to accept this sensor. It's probably best to sit and wait before buying this camera, Canon might do a refresh next year with a new sensor. Or till the price drops. As it stands it's a tough sell.

Perhaps Canon should consult with Sony, and perhaps produce the next Canon iteration as the 7D MK3 with say, a Sony Sensor, they are the new leaders in this field!

noiseless: Purchased my 7DII mid November for detailed bird and butterfly in flight stop action.
I use canon fix focal length lens. 200mm f2.8 for 3 to 10 meter captures and a 400mm f5.6 for 5 to 30 meter subjects.
My test shots may be viewed on the following web site.

http://www.pbase.com/smacomber/7dii_test_shots

Very nice shots indeed noiseless, the colors, details, etc are superb, although my camera is a Panasonic FZ1000 i am still a Canon fan having used many models since the brilliant 20D, so when a new Canon comes along i always like to have a look at pictures from it, well done sir.
