Hi all, I've just bought my partner this camera for his personal training business, however, when taking pics of clients, they come out grainy and blurred. I know nothing about cameras and am a complete beginner... please could someone help me figure out which settings I should have the camera on to achieve the kind of photos I see people taking on here!

I currently have a fz200 and am wondering(considering a quality pic),  how large, percentage wise,  a photo could be enlarged before distortion is noticed by the naked eye.  Meaning the casual observer.  Also, is that percentage number reasonably standard for all sensors.  Would a 25% enlargement limit(for sake of argument) be roughly the same for most sensor sizes and types?

When reviewing photos with zoom in (to check the focus and details) can be posible to navigate from photo to photo without the need to zoom out? Like in Panasonic FZ200 or FZ1000? Does Panasonic TZ70 have this possibility?It's annoying that I have to zoom out, then change the picture and then zoom in again.

I like shooting wildlife and especially birds.  My Lumix FZ200 is light and easy to carry on long hikes but I'm looking for better autofocus and image quality. I'm really interested in Sony's RX10 m3 which can be had for less than a grand used.  Or should I wait and get the m4 for $800 more.  Will the phase shift autofocus  be that much superior for nailing warblers in trees that I should spend the extra dough?  I have no practical experience to help me decide.

Hello all, I have some very basic questions which probably don't deserve their own thread but at least it will be easy to answer. Is it alright if my image file sizes are small? I remember hearing that your basic computer monitor won't show any difference in image quality as long as its 2MB or larger, true? I've recently set my fz300s images to 3MB to take advantage of the ezoom. I don't understand why the fz200 had more size options, I think I would prefer 5MB but maybe it doesn't matter...

I have had a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ200 for over a year now and I have not had any problems uploading pictures and videos to my PC. Until today. The photographs I took transferred as normal, but not the videos (which are recorded in MP4). I use the computer's default software. When I right click on the camera icon on the 'This PC' page and then click on the 'Import Pictures and Videos' option I just get the photographs listed. Before I also used to get the videos. The videos will play on my...

I have just returned a Nikon B700 to the shop because to me the image in the viewfinder and on the screen in shooting mode seems extremely dull with a brown cast compared with previous cameras I have had, for example my Lumix FZ200 which has a very bright accurate and large viewfinder. The final images seem to be well exposed when viewed on the computer, but I feel that the viewfinder gives a very unreliable indication of what the final image will be like. Has anyone else found this to be the...

Last few years have been mostly iPhone photography, but used an FZ200 for a few months and learned a thing or two from Graham Houghton's website.  Great hand holding for the FZ200 neophyte.  However, before I learned enough, I upgraded to a new FZ300.  Now I have 4 weeks to learn and get comfortable with this camera before 3 week safari.  I know how to use iA (and I will get very memorable photos), but want to clue in to Aperature Priority settings for safari (animal, bird, and flora) and any...

My younger sister decided that my fz200 needed swimming lessons. Now it has water behind the lens. It is attempting to dry off in a bag with rice. Any other tips?

Hi, I would like to ask an opinion about wich camera buy between the: Panasonic lumix dmc fz200 (250) Panasonic lumix dmc fz82 (280) I have seen that generally the fz200 is really weel evaluated, but my concern is about its exit data (2012). It is too old, so better spend 30 euro more for a fz80 or still worth buying? NB: It' s my first camera Thanks.
