Hi All, AF on my TZ40 is very slow (takes up to 2-3s sometimes to refocus) during shooting movies in lowlight (like 1-2h before sun set). I wonder if anyone have experienced same issue or there is something wrong with this particular piece. Thanks,Michal

So I dropped my TZ40 whilst the lens was extended and one of the segments got out of whack and it wouldn't contract. With a bit of manual persuasion I got it all to line up again and it worked perfectly for a week. I then switched it on the other day and got the dreaded "System Error (Zoom)" message and the lens remain 'closed'. But it's not fully closed, all the segments appear to be contracted, but the lens cover flaps (?) are not fully closed - they're still open about 5mm. No amount of...

I want to map my photo locations using the GPS data I thought was being saved. I have checked the EXIF data and none of it has been saved. GPS is set to ON and the Airplane mode is OFF. I have searched in the manual and cannot find any helpful information in this situation. What am I doing wrong, please? Thanking you in advance for your help and advice, PlainJain

Hello everyone,  I apologize if this is not the place to post this (and would appreciate if a mod moved this if need be) but I am new and I have no idea what I'm doing! So, I have never owned a camcorder and never consistently been involved with recording videos but I currently find myself with a relatively confusing situation; I need to have a device to place in the room where my wedding will be celebrated in order to record from one angle (plus additional footage during the rest of the day)...

Hello DP Forum This may have already been covered, but, I am still looking and looking and looking at reviews of CSCs. I have a Panasonic Lunix TZ40 (dont laugh), wow I hear you say? i am going to New Zealand in December and would like to take camera that covers the following. It doesn't matter if expensive either or I need to buy extra lenses, or compact/csc. I just need and would love to know what to do and what not to buy. I would like to upgrade to a better more rounded camera. I will...

May I write a little bit on my background. Travelling is my major event of shooting. Due to my age I select M43 format (micro Fourth Third) which to me a good compromise between IQ and weight/size. Since I upgraded my FZ30 to a M43 system camera in 2009, I'm very happy to carry 4 lenses covering from Ultra Wide Angle (7-14mm), standard zoom (14-45mm), a prime for low lighting and upto tele (45-200mm) for my every trip. The nearly full coverage in focal range allowing me to cover almost every...

Hi, I'm new to this so please be kind! I have bought a Lumix TZ 40 which I love, but I find it very frustrating when I upload to my PC that pictures and video go to separate folders. Can anyone tell me if there is a way I can change the storage facility so that all photos and videos just go into one folder? I've looked through the manual and can't find anything that helps. Many thanks everyone.

It appears the minimum shutter speed is 4 s. How can one take night shots at lower ISO (to reduce noise) and greater depth of field?! With TZ40 was easy since it allowed shutter speeds down to 15 s, but how can TZ70 handle this situation?

Hello For 4 years I am using Lumix DMC-FS3, now I want to change it mostly to have more zoom and IQ is important for me, I use it mostly on travels so my thoughts are going to TZ40 / TZ60 with TZ60 cost much to me, would prefer lower priced camera as TZ40. Don't like TZ55 for its tilted screen not use for me and makes the camera bigger, I want as small as possible. Are there any alternatives with price below TZ60 ? I think I want about 20x zoom, IQ as good as possibie and camera as small as...
