  • Hi I have been using Panasonic FZ cameras for a few years now. Bought the X-20 last year for the portability and viewfinder. It is in its leather ever-ready case, and it reminds me of my Leica M ...
  • Congratulations Joms, We are lucky that this extender has the correct thread for thr X-20 lens hood adaptor,  when I get it back from my friend I think it will always be in my pocket on X-20 ...
  • Hi Joms These are the only other tests I did, The extender is with a friend now. Full image, no crop, dull cloudy day. X-20 Full zoom  = 112mm X-20 + converter full zoom X-20 + IDZ + Converter = 190mm
  • Created discussions X-20 Tele Extender
    I picked up this (Olympus C-180) 1.7x converter up on ebay for £10 some years ago. I realised the thread was the same as my lens hood adapter for the X-20, thought I would give it a try out. At ...
  • Very nice set, I must get my X-20 to Prague one day. One point - Why does the exif data show flash fired on every photograph ? David
  • Thanks for the commnts. My other camera in use us the Panasonic FZ150. Unless I know I will be in need of the long zoom the X20 is my constant compannion, I love using it. I can leave it to own ...
  • Thanks Midwest. I bought 4 plants from this garden 40 years ago, and I still go to be amazed by the collection, some specimens over 100 years old. I think the Fuji colours are very accurate without ...
  • Created discussions Rhododendron Gardens
    If you like flowers take a look at this album https://www.flickr.com/photos/visoflex/sets/72157644636006713/ Taken today at Lea Rhododendron Gardens near Matclock Derbyshire. All images straight ...
  • Photoreddi Thanks for the info. I have not used the X10 so your comparision is useful. It would seem to be a bug, as the manual clearly states IDZ as one of the saved parameters. I have decided to ...
  • Page 31 of the manual gives intelligent digital zoom as one of the parameters that can be set whilst in P mode. I cannot get this to work - When in P mode I set i.d.z. to ON then save as C1 custom ...
  • Replied in X20 and flash
    Hi Bill As you replied in the other post (my Castleton images) the camera is indeed fixing the exposure for the ambient light, and then filling up with flash, hence the very dark wood carving was ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts Bill. That sounds plausible, I think I will set a custom mode to use for indoor flash whenever background detail is not required. This is a case of a camera trying to be ...
  • Created discussions X20 and flash
    OK I have been using my X20 for a while now, and I am very pleased with the results. Until recently I had not used flash. I am puzzled, why the camera always uses 1/15 sec regardless of subject ...
  • Thanks for comments. With regard to the church carving - to be honest I had not noticed the exif data. The church woodwork was very dark ,and I used the flash on the carving, why the X20 chose ISO ...
  • Created discussions X20 Day out in Castleton
    I bought the X20 because it reminded me of my Leica "M" days. I had not even read reviews when I bought it ! my main camera was the Panasonic FZ150. The X20 has surpassed all my expectations - I ...
  • Superb photographs Bruce. As a keen gardener I usually take images to remind me of the plants each year. Seeing your images I must try to get more artistry into my flower photographs. David
  • Hi Sergeg Yes much easier today. When I think of the hours I spent leaving my camera and tripod set up for the birds to get used to, and shooting with a pneumatic remote release. The scanner is a ...
  • Created discussions Scans from my archives
    I thought I would post one or two images from the 1970s well befor my Panasonic days, must have been Minolta SLRs I had at the time. All taken at work on colour neg film, negs lost so scanned the ...
  • Nice set Pieter. I must get to Prague one day. I also used Leicas in the past, but now enjoy the X20 with the Fuji eveready case. I wondered why the Exif data shows flash fired on every shot ?. David
  • Frank Thanks for reply - Yes the site has been surrounded by the landscaping of the colliery tip, with many ponds. The nature reserve is looked after by ...
