I've been using a Panasonic FZ40 for a few years. A few months ago the zoom started getting sticky. Sometimes I have to manually center it, and it's hard to make small adjustments. Part way through yesterday a half press of the shutter button stopped working properly. When I try to half-press, it goes ahead and takes the shot. So I can't press half way to set the focus and exposure, then move the camera to adjust what is in the shot. Is the switch simply failing? Or have I managed to select a...

The actual "image" of emoticons is no longer showing.  Not important, rather I'm curious as to why the images are no longer showing. --CarolProud owner of FZ40 and FZ70.

Dear camera enthusiasts, I have been searching for a camera with the following properties (listed in order "higher priority first"): 1. Good image quality in low light conditions, mostly indoor shots of (possibly moving) kids and people. I understand that this is a tough requirement and requires a big sensor and large aperture, and hence it's not going to be cheap. 2. Not too bulky and can be carried under the belt, so that I can take it out, take a shot and put it back quickly and forget...

I have had the FZ18 since September 2007.  Three years ago  I bought a FZ45 from Ebay and found the  quality of  photo (in very bright conditions) was the same as the FZ18 so I sold the FZ45.  I think the FZ200 has the same sensor  as the FZ45  but has fewer magapixels.   I am not very well up in the technical details and wondered if the FZ200 (with its slightly larger sensor than the FZ18)  will be a lot better.

Is there a way to add a date/time stamp to photos taken with the FZ40? I have looked all through the menu and can't find a way to add it to the photos. Thanks Roger

Hi,I have a Panasonic FZ45, and have just purchased the DMW-LA5E Conversion Lens Adaptor and wanted to know if this restricts me to buying the DMW-LC55E/DMW-LT55E?  Or if there are other lenses that fit this adaptor that give better results.  Very much a newbie at this so any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

I am a amateur Photo hobbyist and bought the FZ40 2yrs ago to carry in my purse as an all around camera for when I do not want to lug my DSLR with filters.  Since I am in a Photo club that does competition, I need to be able to get good quality pics.  My issue is that my images are not consistently sharp.  I know it is not a DSLR but if some pics can be spot on then why not most? Have come to the conclusion it is me that is having the issue, not the camera.  I ususally shoot in 'P' or 'A'...
