I find that there are quite a few setting options for this camera that I'm not familiar with.  I did find out how to lock the focus with half depression of the shutter button but as I move the camera to re-compose the picture even after I have lock the focus the exposure setting changes,...and of course I did not intend that.   Where is the setting that controls this. The number of new settings and controls is going to take a long time to learn (and Remember).  One other question,...what are...

I bought an FZ200 a couple of weeks ago to replace my FZ150 (which replaced my FZ35, which in turn replaced my FZ5). It feels like half the time I take the FZ200 out of the case, I have to refocus the viewfinder. I don't recall having to do that on my earlier cameras and was wondering if there's something different. Thanks

I'm not an professional photographer, just want to get beautiful pics with a all-in-one camera. So far my old FZ38 is doing the job, but new features and capabilities available on the FZ1000 are food for thought.  Do you think it is worth changing? What would be the pros 'n cons ?

At the moment: Nex5t with 16-50mm lense is $498   or Nex6L with 16-50mm lense is $520 or Nex5t with 16-50mm and 55-210mm from best buy for $650 We've really only ever had point and shoots.  My latest was a Canon SX260 and my wife's was a FZ35.  I just picked up a Sony RX100 II (my Canon is going to my mom, hers just crapped out).  My wife was really impressed with how well the RX takes photos (the background blurring out behind the subject etc.)  While looking at cameras at best buy she did...

So I'm looking into buying a camera. My dad is offering his Panny DMC-FZ35 for $100, and I might buy it. However, many features of the camera disappoint me, especially the lowlight (In a medium-brightness room, it requires shutter speeds of a tenth of a second or lower!). I'm thinking of buying a new camera, not my dad's used one. Right now at Best Buy, the T3 is on for $500 with the 18-55mm and 75-300mm lens. At Future Shop, the T3i is on for $600 with the same lenses. Should I buy the FZ35...

After hunting around in the menus of my new FZ200, the option to turn off the camera's shutter volume seems to be buried under the Beep option of the Setup menu.  The lowest of three options there, with the "X" icon, reduces the sound to a very low, dull click when I press the shutter.  But it still does not *entirely* eliminate all sound.  I'm a little disappointed, as I was able to accomplish this on my old FZ35.  I'd like to be able to snap photos silently without anyone having any hint at...

Hi all, I recently upgraded from FZ35 to FZ200, and will be spending 2 days in Dubai soon. I know it could be dusty/foggy coloured. I dont have time to buy any filters so what settings or tricks would you recommend? What is the best settings for this type of weather for FZ200? Which settings can decrease the washed out colours? Is it better to use faster shutter speeds, increase contrast values etc. Thanks in advance for all opinions.

Hi all, I am currently in the market for a FZ200. I do movie editing a lot and currently have FZ35. I always preferred to buy PAL as I live in PAL country. However nowadays, I do not plan to output to DVD/BLURAY, and instead create the .mkv or etc file, do not change the frame rate and play on HDTV in the near future. In this case, for 720p or 1080p, is NTSC better because it has a higher frame rate? PAL version is more expensive where I live, and today this thought come to my mind. If the...

Hi all, I've been using a Bridge camera for a few years on and off (Lumix FZ38) and now i am looking at getting my first DSLR. I have been impressed by various online reviews and customer reviews on amazon (hundreds!) and it seems to fit my spec and is exactly what I'm looking to spend. I seek advice on my lens choice. I was thinking of buying the Nikkor 18-55 & 55-300mm - as I would like landscape & more importantly nature/wildlife capabilities. Wildlife shots interest me most. I understand...

I am sorely tempted to upgrade my Panasonic FZ38 to a Canon 600D or 650D. I have noticed Jessops have this on sale with a three lens kit but the more I read about lenses the more bewildered I am. The three lenses are described as Canon 18-55mm IS Lens Canon 55-250mm IS Lens Canon 50mm f/1.8 Lens Does anyone have any opinion on the above lenses ?   Thank you in advance
