The AF Mode line on my Record Menu is GREY.  I can only access lines on my Record Menu that are WHITE.  Have I adjusted some setting that keeps me from accessing the AF Mode option on my Record Menu?  If so...please advise.  Thanking you in advance. Frank Francis

I'm going to Barcelona in September for a 4 day break and have been trying to decide which of my camera's to take in light of my keep reading / hearing of the problem regarding pickpockets,, snatch & grab thieves. I normally only use 2 small Panasonic compacts, the TZ35 & LX5 with the 18mm lens adapter fitted. I am considering taking only one so it can be keep in a belt pouch and close to hand. The TZ35 would give me more zoom if needed, but the LX5 would give me the zoom length I use most...

Guys, I'm asking this question here because you know and use the cameras that I'm asking about. I'm back off to the States in a couple of weeks and have decided upon which cameras I'm taking, FZ150 & LX5 - with the adapter + LWA52 18mm lens fitted, but my old Lowepro shoulder bag is just that bit too much of a squeeze for them to fit properly and feel right. Now I've looked at loads of bags, looked at their sizes and measurement's (taking ages) so I wondered, do any of you know if there is...

I've been following the development of large-sensored compact cameras as well as mirrorless cameras with a lot of interest, since I've always fantasized about a small and compact camera that can perform similarly to professional DSLR in image quality, response, and accuracy.  It seems we're right at the point where this is actually happening, and I'm wondering if it's time I got one of these new breeds of high-end, small-sized cameras.  As background, I currently shoot the 5D Mark III as my...

I wondered if any of you guys could help with some suggestions on a good camera/lens combo for taking close up photos of flowers. I've been using two compacts for quite a while (Panasonic TZ6 & LX5) and have taken the liberty of posting a few shots here to show you what I've managed with them. I"m now looking to go back to a DSLR cam & lens purely for taking more flower shots,, looking for better iq, possibly to print a few for a change. I have in the past owned/used D80"s and D5000. The down...

Hi guys, as some of you will know, I'm not the most technically minded guy on here so I wondered if I might ask (may seem a simple one) a question. Ive taken a few indoor flower photos using both the TZ35 & LX5 and been quite pleased with the results, but never had a go at outdoor shooting.   Now although still a bit breezy today I took these two in my garden. Knelt down elbows resting on the ground to help steady the can with both cams set to burst mode & -2/3 exp, then both cropped with a...

Guys can any of you tell me if it's possible to set the TZ35 iso so it only goes up to 400iso ?,  I can do this on my LX5 but try as I may, I cannot find a way of doing it with the TZ. I"m finding that I'm not as steady as I used to be and getting more blurred snaps than I used to. I have tried setting the iso to  i.iso which gives me a sharper photo but it sometimes can take it right up to 800iso increasing possible noise,,   but then for the kind of photos / viewing I do (on pc /...

This is driving me nuts,,, I'm trying to set the screen on both my TZ35 & LX5 to show the Guide Line as an aid to keeping my photos straight I follow all the steps in the menus, but when I go back to the rear screens the guide line pattern is not showing. Has anyone any idea as to why the guide line will not stay on the screen, or am I doomed to go through life with the sea always running down to one side, ha, ha,,,,, Any ideas would be great. Thanks for looking,...

Hi, this is my first post on DP Review so treat me gently please! I have just purchased my first MFT camera, a Lumix G5, having moved up from a Lumix LX5. I have made some standard initial camera settings but am finding that with Photo Style on STD, Colour Space set to S RGB and EV to Zero the image colours are much paler than the equivalent image on my LX5. They appear over exposed/washed out. I am thus slightly disappointed with the results. I suppose I would class myself as a keen beginner...

On my LX5 I use the auto lens cap as recommended by a few of you guys, (see web photo), works a treat,, But if I want to use my Circ Pol filter,, its a pain to keep unscrewing it, putting the adapter & filter on, then taking it back off every time, so,, the question is this,, when taking landscape / scenery shots, do you guys bother with a Circ Pol filter or simply adjust the camera setting to -2/3 to help darken sky's etc.,,,,    hope its not a daft question to some of you guys. Thanks for...
