Hi everybody, I am new of this forum, so probably the question has been asked before. I have been a strong back problem, preventing me in the last years to go out and take pictures. Actually I am still suffering, but I looking for better future. I have a lot of Canon stuff, 6D/80D, 100-400 mk ii, 100 macro etc, but they are too heavy for me now. I tried with the panasonic fz200 (possibly + TC), the image quality, was not in pair with the canon dsrls, but acceptable. However I could not be...

I have been using FZ200 for years, now being tempted by price drop on fz1000. Can experts tell me  the difference results between these tow sizes SENSOR? I do few traveling annually although already 81, do not feel like to carry heavy DSLR + lenses. From the specks, FZ1000 will cover a lot of those stuffs. My FZ200 always give me satisfactory results, but once go up to 8x10 with little cropping will change the perspective. Appreciate guidances. --bobkwl

Anybody ever work on the internals of a FZ200?  Mine got splashed with salt water about a year ago, acted quite oddly for a while, then settled down and was useable for a few months... but has since gone into a sort of coma.  When I turn it on, the lens extends all the way out, and none of the buttons or controls work - except the mode wheel.  Can't operate anything.  So I am contemplating opening it up just to see what's inside, since it's unuseable anyway; maybe I could get really lucky and...

Hey everyone. I sent my camera to Panasonic to get it fixed, but they told me that since its a UK model, the US support couldn't touch it. Unfortunately bought it secondhand, and the merchants refused to assist and Amazon didn't really help much. What do I do now?  DMC-FZ200 Won't Turn On (YouTube Video)

Hi, I have a 3-month old FZ300 which I haven't used a lot. This past weekend while taking some photos outdoor using the viewfinder, I noticed that every time I try to pre-focus (half press the shuttle button), the image would shake a bit before coming to focus. Looks like the area that is not in focus would come in focus for a fraction of a second, then the whole image became unstable. Feels like interference of some sort. After pre-focusing, if I release and press the shuttle half way again,...

I have shot RAW with my FZ200 but have found that adjustments are not very successful.  Too much noise when lightening shadows, detail in highlights hard to recover and sharpening a waste of time.  I would like to hear from 1 inch sensor owners their experience with RAW shooting as I am considering upgrading.  Sharpness is of primary importance to me. Thanks in advance.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ200 which I love and have been using for a couple of years. Today suddenly when I look through the viewfinder I'm getting a little curtain of vertical blue lines appearing. They don't appear on the LCD screen, and they don't appear on my photos. It's a bit disconcerting attempting to look through them in order to focus. Can anyone tell me what, and why this has suddenly happened? Many thanks for any help.  Jude T

I've had my FZ200 since they first came out.  This is my 2nd Panasonic Lumix FZ. Although i take alot of pictures, i am definitely an amateur.  I'm also an engineer, so suffice to say I've done quite a bit of reading, created a cheat sheet (shutter speed, aperature, ISO), etc. to try to figure out how to take fast action inside shots with this camera with absolutely zero success. I have a daughter who is a gymnast and another in competitive dance.  In both of these instanced the action is...
