To all, I'm a bit confused about the video modes of the FZ200. According to the manual, the ACVHD PSH is the highest mode I can use, and shoots full HD at 60 frames/sec. The MP4 format is only 30 frames/sec. So, why is it, when I set my camera to shoot in MP$ format, the display shows 27 minutes of recording time available, but when I set it to ACVHD PSH, it shows 2+ hours of recording time available? (This is a 32Gb card.) I'm shooting high school football an marching bands, at night under...
Hi, Some months ago I acquired the FZ200. I know I'm very late to the fz200 party but well, I'm just a beginner. So far I really love this camera and I'm evaluating to acquire some lenses for it. Since I am using this camera a lot mainly for regular photos and birding I was thinking on acquiring the DMW-LT55 plus the DMW-LA7 adaptor. I was also wondering it would be worthy to acquire a macro lens or a polarized one. Do you think there could be around there some lenses that is a "must" or very...
after having functioned perfectly for some time, the auto white balance has begun to return photographs with a blue cast even in well-lit sunlight conditions - i know i can correct this by choosing a non-automatic white balance mode or in post-processing of the raw images using lightroom [since i record raw + jpeg] though the jpeg images retain the color cast - is this a known issue with this camera, which has otherwise performed quite well for me - or could i have inadvertently altered a...
I'm a new photo-kid -on -the -block and have just gotten a Panasonic Lumix FZ200 as a starter. At the same time, I've just inherited a new, never used , nikon speedlite sb20 flashgun ( CIRCA 1985 I'm told) and am wondering if this could be used ( on or off-camera basis) with the fz200. Ido notice that the hot shoe connections on each are different, but if there is any chance of these being paired up, what would I need to do? All views welcomed........Thanks
I've been trying to figure out how to optimize the IQ from my FZ200 after some disappointing first forays with the camera. Some of you have seen images in this thread elsewhere. I am combining everything now, in one thread, plus adding some brand new samples shot with your recommended picture settings. What do you guys think?

So I bought a Panasonic FZ200 a few months ago, and the other day I was finally able to test it out for its intended purpose at Trudeau Airport in Montreal. The results concern me. I took very similar shots with both my Pentax K-5 and the FZ200. I am posting them so you can see what I am concerned about. What I hope to learn is if these grainy results are the result of some correctable error, or if this is just the way it goes, or worse, that maybe I have a bad FZ200 copy. Please enlarge each...
i own a W850 and was wondering if anyone out there who owns this camcorder or the V750 have found an extended battery by third party makers that will work with this camera. usually those third party batteries are cheaper. i also own a Panasonic FZ200 camera and have found wasabi-brand batteries that work with the camera. i just wanted to check with all you good folks before dropping $130 on the Panasonic-brand extended battery. i've done some research and some folks have bought batteries that...
Over time, the ability to manufacture sensors with smaller pixels and higher pixel density (for higher resolution) has seen improvement in IQ as the technologies involved have improved. I personally am not a fan of the "megapixel wars" and have always believed (based on experience) that for a small, 1/2.3in sensor, 12mp was about the practical maximum. However, backside illuminated sensors are supposed to deliver higher S/N ratios, slightly larger pixels (due to the elimination of non-pixel...
