Dear All, We own a TZ7, and have mostly used it in full-auto (iA) mode. The results are acceptable for quick snapshots of our kids, but seeing the photos posted of flickr hints that we're missing out on something :-)What are your recommendations? Program mode? Scene modes? Use ISO: auto or Intelligent ISO? Neither? Which focus mode? Intended uses:- mostly for not quite static kids (playing),- simple portraits,- static family group shots,- landscapes? The Lumix is mostly used by my wife; when...

I've just upgraded from a 5 year old Panasonic TZ7 / ZS3 to the Canon SX700 and while I love the new Canon, I am having a little bit of difficulty trying to hold it comfortably with one hand (right hand). The problem is where to put my thumb.  The Panasonic had a dedicated grip area for a thumb on the back of the camera, but the Canon doesn't.  Without thinking, I keep putting my thumb on the SX700's blue "play" button, as that's roughly where the Panasonic's thumb grip area was, thus I end...

Hi, My wife has a Lumix TZ7 (ZS3), and likes it for its compactness. She takes videos often (of our kids playing or doing sports) either in the open or in well-lit interiors. The current camera is limited to 720p video. Can you recommend any that could replace it? Let's stay below USD 500 (or EUR 500, as many cameras cost the same in $ as in €). We're not in a hurry, the TZ7 is alive and kicking, its quality is mostly OK for her needs, I was just wondering if technological progress has...

Why can I not buy a small "travel zoom" camera with 20x or more optical zoom and the ability to capture images in RAW format? I am a 58 year old British bloke who first got interested in photography as an 8-year old.  I owned my first SLR (that I had personally worked to pay for) by the time I was 13.  I successfully completed a 3-year British degree course - B.A. (Hons) in Photography - in the late 1970s.  I then spent 20+ years as a professional photographer using top end Hasselblad and...

Will Panasonic put out a ZS ? 37, the ZS40 without the GPS/WIFI, like they did the ZS27 (ZS30) and ZS19 (ZS20) ??  That is what I want to replace my ZS19.  BC Bob

I recently got a DMC ZS30  and have a question about the supplied CD. I have Photo Fun Studio 3.0 HD on my computer which I was using with my DMC ZS3. If I load the Photo Fun Sudio 9.1 PE which came with my new ZS30 will it automatically overwrite the 3.0 HD addition ? Also will I have the photos and movies which I previously shot with my ZS30 in the 9.1 PE addition or will I have to keep both additions on my computer ?

Hi all - first post here :) having previously owned a TZ7 (SZ3?) P&S camera, I have just upgraded to the LX7. I (very) often shot with the longer-exposure (typically 15sec) "starry sky" mode on the TZ7 but was disappointed to find this preset omitted from the LX7. After trying to mimic a night shot that my TZ7 can produce with my new LX7, I seem to only achieve massively grainy/noisy shots! Not sure what I'm doing wrong... I would have assumed/hoped that I would get LESS noise than the TZ7...

Hallo everybody,I want to upgrade from zs3 to fz 200 and one reason is the video quality of fz 200. I know that the video on fz 200 is excellent but i am interested too in the canon powershot g15 wich takes better photos but has a lower quality video and a shorter zoom . I there anybody who owns both cameras in order to compare the two cameras in regard to video capability? I mean the video of fz 200 is so much better or in real life it does not make so much difference?PS I have no artistic...
