My 76 year old friend is hoping for a Bridge camera with viewfinder for photographing flowers, insects and birds as well as the grandchildren. I have the FZ150, bit more complicated to use than the FZ20, the viewfinder is not great and the intelligent auto which I suspect she often uses gives images that are often over-exposed. She does not have Photoshop but is looking to get good, crisp images. What would be your suggestion?
I had just about settled on getting the Sony Cybershot HX200V when I saw notes on here raving about the RX100 which is a lot more expensive. Then I found out the newest model up from the HX200V has come out which is the HX300. Now I've read a few negative reviews about the newer model, one that said it was "problematic." I'm an amateur photographer who's constantly learning and wanting a newer camera to learn on. I do have the Sony Alpha A57 and two lens but sometimes prefer a smaller...
Hi all,I was wondering whether there has been any official word from Panasonic or any kind of reliable inside information as far as a follow-up model in the bridge camera line goes. Can we expect a follow-up model to the Lumix DMC-FZ200 still this year? Are there any details as to the release time and specifications of such a successor? (It might be relevant in this context to know what release cycle Panasonic was on for this camera line before, which most people here probably know much...
I have tried looking on the Panasonic website and gotten nowhere! Is there or has there ever been a way to find out if the firmware on the FZ150 was ever updated? I know this camera is discontinued but my college-age daughter uses it primarily and recently asked me this question. Now I know on some brands it's easy to see if the firmware is updated, but navigating the Panny site on an "older" camera is ridiculous at least to me! Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
Hi ppl, so far I've only been using the single (central) focus point for stationary birds on trees, fences or wherever, just to ensure the FZ150 doesn't focus on nearby leaves or twigs. And the focus square would be minimized. I used to do the same thing for BIF, with the expected miserable results, which I didn't understand considering I always shot at 5.5AF. Only very recently did I realise that the bird had to be inside the focus square in order for 5.5AF to work well. But I also hear of...
I am trying in vain to understand the range of focus numbers on the LCD display. They don't seem to indicate depth of field, and I'm not sure if/how to use them. It might say 1 ft to infinity, but that is clearly not the range of focus at the moment, as I can see the blurry background.Can anyone set me straight? Thanks,Martes
