  • +1 about Amazon. If a product is defective they will pay postage both ways, as long as you buy from Amazon and not a third party that sells on Amazon. You just print a return pre- paid label from ...
  • Linda, If you do have a chance to play around with the RX10 IV, make sure that you extend the zoom to 600mm while holding the camera in a shooting position. The lens becomes quite long, IMHO, and ...
  • +1 on a good EVF. Regards, Dave
  • Funny you should ask. I checked out the zoom difference before I sent the Sony back. I set the Sony at 480mm, focused on an object and then zoomed to 600mm while looking through the EVF. I did ...
  • I pre ordered the RX mk4 and received it right after it was released. I thought that this would be the camera of my dreams. Yet there were lots of things that I really didn't like when it arrived. ...
  • Yes, I always returned the cameras and lenses within the 30 day window. And I agree with you that they should not block your review, unless it was vulgar, which I assume that it was not. I have ...
  • I have purchased quite a few cameras from Amazon over the years and I have probably returned about half of them because I did not like them for various reasons. I have NEVER had a problem with the ...
  • I suspect it is because Panasonic makes far more money on their ILC's than on their fixed lens cameras. When they sell an ILC body they will probably also sell several lenses. This is why Olympus ...
  • Thank you JPAlbert and lightanaprayer for this information. I am really quite the novice when it comes to things like this, just enough to get myself into trouble. I shall do a bit of reading and ...
  • I have read this thread with some interest. I have a late 2012 Mac Mini 2.3 ghz i7. I upgraded the memory to 16 GB (it was a very simple). It came with 1TB of storage. I guess that I would like to ...
  • Created discussion thread FZ2500 lens hood
    Has anyone found a good after market lens hood for the FZ2500? I am not that thrilled with the one that came with the camera, although it does work. I think that a replacement is around $40! Is ...
  • Agreed. The Toploader Zoom 45 works if you don't use the lens hood, but you really need the Toploader Zoom 50 if you want to have the lens hood attached. Regards, Dave
  • Actually I did have it saved to a photography folder. That is where I always retrieved the manual before, but it didn't work either yesterday or today until I shut down the computer and restarted ...
  • Success! I just shut down and then restarted my computer to see if that would do it. It did. I can now download the manual again. Very strange. My computer was working fine for everything else, ...
  • Yup, that is the pdf that I have tried to download both yesterday and today, but it doesn't work. I have no idea why, since it worked fine all of the other times that I tried. Regards, Dave
  • Created discussion thread FZ2500 pdf manual problem
    Is anyone else having a problem getting the FZ2500 pdf manual to come up on their computer? I have not had any problem before, but I tried to get it both yesterday and today and it simply will not ...
  • I believe that you could save shutter, aperture and ISO to MR, but that would defeat my desire to use the shutter button for video. I cannot see any way to save those things to a custom button. Reg ...
  • I assume that you do give up stills during video because I haven't found anything to the contrary in the Help Guide. Frankly, this doesn't bother me. I would much rather be able to use the shutter ...
  • I don't know if it is new, but you can configure the RX10 iv to shoot video by using the shutter button instead of the video button. Personally I like using the shutter button to start and stop ...
  • Sorry if my original post was confusing. Yes, I want to use the shutter button for video. But I want the "video" on the mode dial to remember the shutter, aperture and ISO settings when I switch ...
