Hi everyone. I would really appreciate some help. I recently bought a Pentax X5 camera after a frustrating experience with Panasonic TZ30. The problem is that zoom range during video shooting is only 7.2X and my feeling is that it is digital zoom, rather than optical zoom as image quality really deteriorates when you zoom. The zoom range starts at your initial zoom level and would go to 7.2X no matter what. I've looked at all the settings to see if I'm doing anything stupid but can't figure...
Hi! My brother has suggested I replace my broken Ricoh Caplio R5 with a Panasonic TZ30 (or TZ20). You can tell the sort of thing I take photos of from my flickr pages: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10343735@N08/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/43354707@N02/ - namely waves, surfers, streetscenes, architecture, architectural details, countryside, weather etc. I take a fair number of photos in overcast/gloomy conditions, indoors or at sunrise/sunset or in other low light levels, so the camera...
I have problems seeing & accessing files on my TZ30 When I take my card out of camera & put it into a reader & then into my PC I have a strange thing happen. Windows makes its connection sound, a new drive is discovered & named. If I click on the card drive & select DCIM I can see all of my thumbnails. But it I then select several of these pictures to copy them & paste them onto the desktop Windows says it can't see the picture that I'm seeing on the screen. Whats going on? Is there a...
I had a DMS-ZS7 which has battery DMW-BDG10PP . It came with its own charger that plugs directly into the wall.I now also have a new DMC-TZ30 which has battery DMW-BCG10E & charges directly while in camera.I suspect that the batteries are interchangeable & that either could be charged either way. Is this the case?I also have 3rd party battery which is Marked PK-DMV-BCG10E. This battery also says its 3.6v 3800 mAh. This is strange since the 2 other ones are marked as being only 895mAh....
I just purchased a zs19 and am looking to buy an ac maxx screen protector. Nobody seems offer a specific one for the zs19/20, probably because it would interfere with the touch screen functions. I would just as soon not have the touch screen functions, so I need to find a panasonic model with the exact same size screen... actually the same size lighted portion of the screen, ignoring the black borders as they do not seem to be uniformly sized. Would anyone here have other panasonic models...
Hi allNewbie here.I have read through the forums and I have seen similar threads but my needs are slightly different so please be patient!Basically, I have had the LX3 for a few years and love it. Have been thinking about the LX7 and am wondering whether to part-ex and upgrade. My usage has been slightly different:1 For various reasons, I have been using the LX3 as a P&S and in IA mode most of the time. I still love the idea of all the functions, and one day when I have more time, plan to...
Hello!Any other ZS20 / TZ30 users mind sharing what settings they use to achieve optimal / best results when shooting in Daylight / Low-light or Indoors / Full-Zoom?Currently, what I use is:Daylight: P Mode ; Auto-ISO ; 14MP ; Center AF ; Center Metering ; iZoom on (just for the heck of extra zoom) ; iResolution and iHDR off ; Flash OffLow-Light or Indoors / Zoom : Normally, I just use the above setting and set Flash to Auto or switch to iAuto mode.Any thing that you might share what settings...
