When accessing photos on my old DMC-FZ28, I simply used it like a USB thumb drive, external drive, etc. No problems. I recently “upgraded” to a used FZ45(40) and am having some problems. I can access the photos the same way as I used to, BUT it won’t let me delete/edit-save images anymore. It says the photos are write protected! The memory card was simply moved from the old camera into the new one, I didn’t set the physical lock on it. I did format the card to try and solve the problem. No...
Hi guys, I have a FZ38 and its a great camera having fun with it and showed my buddy it and he likes it just as much as me am still waiting for my filters to come so while I wait I was looking online about the FZ45 and the FZ72 am still getting to grips with my FZ38 so when the time comes I want to update it to a better one that has more control I would like to stick with the Panasonics as I like the brand I know I could maybe get a better camera for the same money. I don't mind going...
Just for grins and giggles, I'm looking at getting one of the less expensive 2X teleconverters for playing around with extreme telephoto shots with my FZ40. Panney's own 1.7 converter and adapter setup are a bit pricey for me, so I'm wondering if anyone has had any decent results in the upper end of the telephoto range (12-24X) with one of the 52mm screw-in lenses? thanks for any input!
I'm looking to buy a CPL to use with my Panney FZ40 superzoom, probably a B+W. I've read in other posts about the advisability of buying a CPL with a larger diameter to avoid problems with vignetting, etc. Would this be good advice if a good percentage of my shots will probably be at the wider end of the zoom (25mm for this camera), even with a better quality filter such as the B+W? Or should I save some money and go with a less expensive CPL with a step-up ring? The front thread om my...
I have a FZ40, but this is probably applicable to other Panasonic superzooms in this class. Panasonic lists a +3 close-up filter as an accessory for this camera, and I would like to know if anyone has experience using close up filters with these cameras? Best setting, or combination of settings for maximum effectiveness for super close-ups? Also, is there a forum which would be better suited for questions concerning close-up photography? Appreciate any help! Thanks!
Good morning all, I have since some years a Panasonic Lumix FZ45. With the camera there were (and I still have) the software for downloading the pictures (Photo Fun Studio 5.0 HD Edition) and also Silkipix. Since one month I have a new notebook (HP ProBook, iCore i7, with solid disc) with Windows 7 professional S.P.1. I cannot use Photo fun Studio on this PC. I have another notebook, with Win7 SP1, and on it it's working. Does anybody have the same problem? How did you fix it? I've tried also...

I've been using a Panasonic FZ40 for a few years. A few months ago the zoom started getting sticky. Sometimes I have to manually center it, and it's hard to make small adjustments. Part way through yesterday a half press of the shutter button stopped working properly. When I try to half-press, it goes ahead and takes the shot. So I can't press half way to set the focus and exposure, then move the camera to adjust what is in the shot. Is the switch simply failing? Or have I managed to select a...
So.. I am taking pics of my sons school (5th/6th graders) play tomorrow... no flash, various and difficult lighting situation... I will be seated front center.. and would like some thoughts on what experienced FZ200 users feel would be the best setting for getting the best results... I have just recently stepped up to a FZ200 (in part just for situations as this) from a FZ40.. but have next to zero time on the FZ200.... Aperture or Mannual, Vivid, ISO 400, 2.8 ?? suggestions will be...
