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...

Hi. Was able to play a bit more using the RX100 but had some focusing problems with self portrait.I used a camera self portrait stick.  I initially used a 10 second timer setting, pressed the shutter button, then extended the stick for the family self portrait. However, the focus was not clear since it probably focused on a different focal length when I pressed the button then went out of focus when I extended the stick.The queer thing is I never had that "focusing" problem with my LX5 or ZS3...

Hi,I am looking to step into the world of DSLRs, and I'm trying to decide between 3 options I have arrived at. I'm almost certain I want the Canon 600D or the 650D, but I'm not sure which one to go for. On top of that, I also can't decide which lens to go for.I've spent several hours reading all the comparisons between the two bodies, and seem to have arrived at the conclusion that the 650D is only worth the extra cost if video is one of my primary concerns. However, most of these comparisons...

Hi, I'm asking this question because I'm looking for a "travel zoom" compact camera which would have a bright enough lens with a zoom to at least 300mm equiv. Last Summer, I tried a ZS15. Sadly, I was disappointed when I noticed that the ISO went to 400, when zooming to 2X or 3X on a cloudy day. When I checked the EXIF, I saw that the pictures were taken at f/5.6 or higher!I used to have a ZS3. It was convenient because of its small size and versatile zoom (equiv. 25-300mm). It was not...
