I wondered if any of you guys could help with some suggestions on a good camera/lens combo for taking close up photos of flowers. I've been using two compacts for quite a while (Panasonic TZ6 & LX5) and have taken the liberty of posting a few shots here to show you what I've managed with them. I"m now looking to go back to a DSLR cam & lens purely for taking more flower shots,, looking for better iq, possibly to print a few for a change. I have in the past owned/used D80"s and D5000. The down...

Hi guys, as some of you will know, I'm not the most technically minded guy on here so I wondered if I might ask (may seem a simple one) a question. Ive taken a few indoor flower photos using both the TZ35 & LX5 and been quite pleased with the results, but never had a go at outdoor shooting.   Now although still a bit breezy today I took these two in my garden. Knelt down elbows resting on the ground to help steady the can with both cams set to burst mode & -2/3 exp, then both cropped with a...

Guys can any of you tell me if it's possible to set the TZ35 iso so it only goes up to 400iso ?,  I can do this on my LX5 but try as I may, I cannot find a way of doing it with the TZ. I"m finding that I'm not as steady as I used to be and getting more blurred snaps than I used to. I have tried setting the iso to  i.iso which gives me a sharper photo but it sometimes can take it right up to 800iso increasing possible noise,,   but then for the kind of photos / viewing I do (on pc /...

This is driving me nuts,,, I'm trying to set the screen on both my TZ35 & LX5 to show the Guide Line as an aid to keeping my photos straight I follow all the steps in the menus, but when I go back to the rear screens the guide line pattern is not showing. Has anyone any idea as to why the guide line will not stay on the screen, or am I doomed to go through life with the sea always running down to one side, ha, ha,,,,, Any ideas would be great. Thanks for looking,...

Hi, this is my first post on DP Review so treat me gently please! I have just purchased my first MFT camera, a Lumix G5, having moved up from a Lumix LX5. I have made some standard initial camera settings but am finding that with Photo Style on STD, Colour Space set to S RGB and EV to Zero the image colours are much paler than the equivalent image on my LX5. They appear over exposed/washed out. I am thus slightly disappointed with the results. I suppose I would class myself as a keen beginner...

On my LX5 I use the auto lens cap as recommended by a few of you guys, (see web photo), works a treat,, But if I want to use my Circ Pol filter,, its a pain to keep unscrewing it, putting the adapter & filter on, then taking it back off every time, so,, the question is this,, when taking landscape / scenery shots, do you guys bother with a Circ Pol filter or simply adjust the camera setting to -2/3 to help darken sky's etc.,,,,    hope its not a daft question to some of you guys. Thanks for...

In a previous post, ( FZ200 just a leaf) I posted a photo that is showing no exif data. I have looked through the camera's menus and can"not see/find any setting that enables me to turn it on ?? Do any of you guys know either,, how to switch this on,, or any other reason for the photo taken with the  FZ not to be showing any data ??. Curious, as photos taken with my other cams ( TZ35 & LX5 ) all show the data,,   is it just a FZ200 thing,,,,,,,,,,, Thanks for looking, rolandb

Assuming there is no such thing as a dumb question - here goes: My first m4/3 - GX7 - is coming later this week. Is it possible to use the wide conversion lens from the LX5 or LX3 with it? If so, would I even want to, and what would be the result? Thank you, Cheryl

I will be traveling to Italy (several cities), Paris and Normandy in April. I own a D70 with kit lens, 70-300 and 50 prime. Also have a Panasonic Lumix LX5. On recent travels to the Caribbean I have used the LX5 and been happy with the images and the convenience of such a small camera was terrific. Of course, there are some shooting situations for which the LX5 is not a good substitute for a DSLR. Because I expect my trip to Europe to be a once-in-a-lifetime event, I have been thinking a bit...
