Hi all, I have an fz1000 which has become my best friend, (replacing my mirrorless apsc and lenses) and I have taken many "bird at feeder" photos that I am very happy with. However, out in the field,  with full zoom (not digital zoom, I don't go there) I can get "bird in far away bushes" shots that are good enough for id purposes, but not good enough to just enjoy and share like I did with my old fz150 or fz200  (btw, looking back over the years at my bird images, to my eyes, the fz150 did...

Yes I have done my research. I have read and watched reviews of all these 9 cameras. I'm sorry if I am asking the same question again, but I am still having a hard time choosing which camera to buy. I really need help guys. Please help me choose a camera to buy out of all these 9 cameras. Out of all these 9 Cameras, which camera is the best for me? The P610, WX500, HX90V, A5100, RX100 II, FZ200, DMC-GF7, SX60 HS, or the S9900? Which of these 9 cameras is the best in low light? I do not like a...

New FZ200 owner here. I like the camera, and have a pertinent question - where is the photo file? On most cameras, I plug in the camera, click on 'my computer', and the camera appears, which leads you to the files. I don't see that with this camera. In the manual, it says to 'register' your desktop, and a few other files with Panasonic. NO THANKS! If I have to get my photos through Panasonic, and if they get access to my computer in the process - the camera goes back. Paranoia? Am I reading...

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ200. I bought it used. It included tons of various filters and a couple lenses. But none of these extras fit the standard lens because they are 68mm. Is the lens on the Lumix 52mm or 55mm. Is there such thing as a "step-up" adapter that goes from the existing lens - to the 68mm extras? Thank you.

Hi, Just traded my FZ200 for the 1000. I remember reading a long time ago on this forum about internal noise that this camera makes and mine does. Is it something that is normal for the 1000 and you just have to get used to it or should I be returning my copy? Thanks, --John B

I have had a Panasonic ZS10 for 4 yrs now but will be retiring in the next year and wanted to upgrade to a newer camera. The FZ200 and the GF7 ( after reading about compact system cameras ) were my two choices in my $$ range . I bought the GF7 on sale at a local camera shop have played with it for 3 days but am really now thinking that I should have gotten the FZ200. As soon as I turned on the GF7  the wi-fi screen showed up . Not really into having my photos on any and all devices . The...

I know that the FZ200 has f/2.8 the whole way across the zoom, but I just find anywhere the lowest aperture the camera has. Can someone help?

Having restored all my photos from backup to a new Windows 10 PC, can anyone explain why I can't view RW2 files from my older Panasonic FZ100 in Windows File Explorer, but I can view newer ones from my FZ200?

I'm thinking of getting an FZ200 for my wife, she presently has a Canon SX50 and gets very frustrated with it picking the wrong subject with auto focus, and it's slow response.  Is there an easy way to manually focus the FZ200, she's technically challenged so it's got to be easy. --Steve T.

I have had my FZ200 for almost 3 years and have been very pleased with it. However in the last week it has been gradually developing faults. I would like to know if there is a chance it will be fixed economically (sending it almost 2000 km/approx 1200 miles and $70 AUD to quote on it) or whether I should just bite the bullet and replace it.  Initially when selecting Intelligent Auto (iA) on the top dial, it would seemingly randomly jump to some other setting internally. Now it often shows a...
