Re: Graham Houghton released his free ebook the FZ200 User's Manual

Graham:

Let me add my personal thanks for all those helpful videos. They are great. I admire your teaching style. It is most effective. Your great videos have really increased the enjoyment of so many folks now that they know a little more about their cameras thanks to your efforts. I learn something each time I watch one.

Thank you......

Re: Graham Houghton released his free ebook the FZ200 User's Manual

As I've reed the excellent book, I could hear Graham's voice as if he were reading it aloud. Panasonic would be wise to contract Graham to write future user manuals!

Thank you Graham!

Graham Houghton,

Thank-you for your comprehensive, well written manual for FZ200.  Your ebook will be much used in my home -- my wife has FZ200 and I have FZ150.

Hi Graham,

Great to see you here at this forum. While its not a FZ200 forum, they are lots of FZ200 posts here. Everyone appreciates your great effort in producing this book. The download issues were a testament to how many people wanted to get a copy. I hope Panasonic take note of what you have done and why it was necessary, but probably not.Actually we have no idea whether Panasonic ever look at this site.

I downloaded this out of curiosity.

Guy should hire an editor.

But......it's free.

Amateur catch-up

Indeed, I find Graham's e-book for the FZ200 really excellent! Kindest of xmas presents. I did an early download without problem, so try again, either download, if delays.

And from an amateur who gained much from his videos: just in case of interest, I've now uploaded an Addendum thought to my initial flickr Set on Travel Accessories with the FZ200 following an exciting trip. Other thoughts from you more-expert users much appreciated:

I'm no DPR expert either! But thought I'd add an FZ200 image to go with my comment below  P

I worked until recently, indirectly, for a major brand tractor manufacturer and I can assure you that manufacturers and distributors all take a keen interest in what goes on in forums like these for their feedback and in helping to protect their reputation to some extent. In my little world, even on nationwide forums, we would work out who had the problems and who was saying what and why, and jump on dealers to sort things out and report issues back up the distribution and/or production chain. It is not so easy to identify individuals in an international forum, or therefore to pro-actively help sort any issues they might have, but nevertheless it must be useful from a management and marketing point of view.

If the management of most brands are not watching these forums, I would be very surprised. Fuji, for instance, must be very pleased with the feedback from their firmware updates to older model cameras, while Sony must be noting the confusion and uncertainty that their branding and marketing decisions have caused in the market recently. Not only will they be watching the reaction to their own brand products but also to their rival's.

Re: Graham Houghton released his free ebook the FZ200 User's Manual

I sent Graham $5 by PayPal for his great book, and would like to urge all who are truly appreciative of his hard work to do the same.  Come on, it's only $5 (or more, your call)  Cheers.
