Growing up, I used my dad's old Minolta but when he sold it for a Lumix FZ20, we both got hooked on the Panasonic line. From the FZ20, I went to the FZ35, then FZ200 then finally made the switch from bridge to ILC - but I miss that 300mm (600mm) focal length on the superzooms. Having used the GH3 for a few years now, I do not want to purchase a second camera just for focal length, let alone those small sensors.  If it were for personal use, it would not matter to me, but I require a...

the fz80/82 and the fz330/300. I’m asking as I have the fz330 with lt55 and one of the places I shoot has a small river run through it so I can’t physically get any closer and have to use both izoom and lt55 for some shots.  I tried the fz72 a bit back but the copy I had was horrible with way too much smearing of details that my then fz200 with lt55 was better. cheers Paul uk.

I will be at my grandsons basketball game in a few days. I prefer to use manual settings on my fz200. Being indoors, what do you believe is the highest iso setting and not get grainy pics? I will probably be using f2.8, or does anyone know a better setting? Such as f4.0, iso 1200. Or just set it so "sports" and forget it. I also have a hotshoe ttl flash. Would you take that or would it interfere with the game? Any tips are appreciated.Thank you.

Dear all, I am looking forward to backpacking (including trekking) in South America, including the Amazon. Now I am searching for a good camera, and I am quite lost with all the reviews and recommendations that exist on the internet, as this is the first time I really engage in finding a good camera (previously, I never had the means). I would like to find a camera that doesn`t break the bank (max. 500 Euros), but produces nice, realistic pictures that I could maybe print at A4 or even A3....

I hooked up my Vivitar 283 flash on to my Lumix FZ1000 flash bracket and it didn't fire. Then I tried the onboard flash. It didn't fire. Then I went to menu-rec-flash and Flash was greyed out. Have I blown out the FZ1000 flash circuit?  FWIW, the 283 worked perfectly on my FZ200 with no harm to the camera. Thank you.

Where I live the temperature is hovering around 20 degrees Fahrenheit ... How cold does it have to be to damage a camera?

Just joined today.  My wife and I are seniors (65) and both have P&S cameras (Lumix FZ200 and Canon SX730), typically shooting in AI , never in Manual.  Plan to take a course or 2 at local CC to get better/smarter, especially for pics of grandkids.  Back in 2014 we went to Katmai NP to view coastal griz with a pilot/guide out of Homer, and he kept his big Canon DLR on a monopod, walking 8 miles in 13 hours, and never seemed tired.  We have a QSX Versipod2 monopod, and I think it might be good...

I love my lumix 200, but lately the zoom seems to freeze and lock up.  Anyone have this issue?  For my use, I'm perfectly happy with a 12 megapixel camera, so I haven't been anxious to step up to a 20 megapixel camera. Any words of wisdom?

I have an A6000 plus kit lens and 55-210mm. Overall I am very happy, but.......... I have had mixed results with Birds in Flight and Air Shows. My Air show pictures are disappointing when compared with last years shots taken with a Panasonic FZ200. what would anyone suggest I do to improve matters. Do I need to buy a new lens and if so what? Or dare I say it on this forum go for Panasonic G80/85 plus 100-300 or 100-400mm?

Hi, I just looked at a folder of recently imported photos and see a duplicate copy of each photo with a file name beginning CP_1_file name. Can someone explain how I did this and do I need these files? What app or setting would create these? Panasonic FZ200 Mac os 10.12.6 Did run them through gps4campro but not sure if the CP files were there before gps4campro Thanks, Vito
