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...

Thanks for looking,, Roland. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rolandb52/ "" I'm a snap-shooter! I shoot anything that interest me. Sometimes, I get lucky and some...

Having loved my photography from a very young age, I initially shot 35mm, (didn't we all) and then progressed onto various Nikon SLRs, with all the lenses, finally succumbing to PX my kit and opt for an easier life with a DSLR bridge, with the Panasonic FZ200. However, whilst it has a terrific zoom, I find the file size limiting for cropping, so it's time to move on yet again, hence, the question. With a trip to South-East Asia booked and wanting to be able to capture fairly high-res pictures...

This problem didn't occur when the camera was new and somewhere in the first year  it would randomly freeze when pressing the button to stop recording video. This occurs when I just use the red video record button or it can occur when I set the dial to M (movie) mode and then press the shutter release button to start and stop video. My flash card is a 32GB SanDisk 30MB/S class 10 card that is faster than required per the manual. When the freeze occurs, powering off does not help. Sometimes...

Having just "upgraded" my older TZ25 for a TZ70, I'm wondering if there's any need for me to now keep my (never used it much) FZ200. I did a kind of test this morning to see if I could really see much difference, but I personally don't see much, and that's really my question, given my type/style of "snapping" ( holidays & days out ) nowadays is it worth me keeping the FZ as I'm none too sure when I'd use it. These are both sooc with the last one (TZ70) being cropped slightly to make it...

Hi all, I'm a casual user here, hoping to get some advice. Basically, I'm considering to get a new lens for my d5000 but at the same time have also been planning for some time to get a small mirrorless (Olympus epl7 or similar). My usage is for general stuff and shooting small kids. Question is, does it still make sense to continue to invest in DSLR especially when the body I have is quite dated? Currently what i'm mostly using is the d5000 with the 35mm prime (50mm equivalent) attached most...
