Just wondering how these two compare for macro work both with and without a raynox fitted. If the fz200 is better than I will get one while they are still available just for macro.

I have seen some photos that I really like of water falls and flowing water where it appears evident to me that they have set the camera up so the lens is open for a period of time and the camera held on a tripod or in a fixed position. I can't figure out how to get to the settings to increase exposure. Is that something that has to be done in M mode or another mode? Can someone walk me through this? Help is appreciated. Been shooting in automatic mode to long, I guess.

Wavering between outstanding better zoom power and value of FZ200, improvements offered by FZ300, and IQ of F1000. But, won't any fixed lens zoom be pumping air in and out as it expands and contracts, at least partially negating a major advantage of weather sealed FZ300? I live in coastal (salty air) subtropical (humid... even when it isn't raining), South (hot) Florida. Actually, raincan be a blessing, at least when it rinses off some of the salt and mud). So, even going from indoors or from...

Having sorted out a FZ200 replacement for my FZ150, I wondered if you guys could help me with a question regarding the LX5 / LX7 Simply,, will the LVF-1 viewfinder, LA6 + LWA52 adaptor tube and wide lens and spare battery that I have/use with my LX5 also fit and work on the LX7 or would I need to "start again" with these bits. Also with the cosy of buying these ""add on"s"" along with the camera, would the outlay be worth it for the better camera / iq that the LX7 would supposedly give me,,...

This has probably been asked before, and if so, please excuse my asking again, but,,,, I have an "aging" FZ150, that I'm not 100% is as sharp as it should be after being dropped a few weeks ago,, first time EVER that I've dropped a cam,, Now although I still have and use the TZ25 / LX5 combo, I'm thinking I will replace the 150,, I had a very brief ownership of a FZ1000 which (to cut the story short) wasn't for me so can you guys answer me this,, Do I pick up another used FZ150 or is the...

This weekend, I'm headed to my daughter's college graduation with the pretty new (to me) fz200.   I've been playing around a bit with it, but I'm still learning... Setting will be indoors, coliseum, good lighting, but still an indoor shot with no flash.   I anticipate I'll be about 100 to 150 yards away from my daughter as she receives her diploma, I'll be up in the stands and shooting down.   I'm guessing I'll need to be at aperture 2.8, about ISO 400.   I'll capture RAW images. The one...

Just bought an FZ200 for a particular scenario that I shoot weekly. It works perfectly for this regular weekly shoot where the final image is @ 1000 pixels wide, but I cannot locate the avenue to take to preview my exposure settings in any mode. I can, however, see something akin to exp. preview while in M mode and a half press of the shutter. Even this does not seem to be very accurate and I must lift my shutter finger to make any adjustment and then half press the shutter again add...

Hi all. I have had this camera for about a year, but still need some help. My question today is about how to achieve a blurred background when filming myself. I am a vlogger, and prefer the background to be blurred, to make myself the focal point, instead of having a distracting background that is totally in focus. Can someone help me decide what setting is best, along with any other details? Thank you so much!

When in iA mode the camera will only zoom to 24x. This happened about a week ago but then worked within a few minutes. It now will not go beyond 24x in ia or iA+ modes. I tried many things but nothing I came up with worked. Let me know of any Ideas you have. It looks like it may be time to send the camera in. --Steve

I got the fz200 in december. Everything was fine and dandy with it up until about a week ago. I don't know what happened, but i think the microphone broke? All i can hear is the internal ticking sound and its really loud. I didn't drop it or shake it around. I tried resetting the camera, it didn't do anything. Has anyone else had this issue?  I plugged in an external microphone and that's still all you can hear. Is this what they were talking about when they said don't use non-panasonic mics...
