I have a new FZ70 which I am enjoying very much. I have only used the camera on automatic and would like to know what settings the camera chose for ISO, f-stop, etc. How can I locate that information? I love the range from Macro to Zoom. Bradford Pear blossoms Female adult osprey
After almost 2 years of intense use, the zoom of the FZ70 camera started to give problems. Last week it just stopped running. Not the camera, but the zoom. What might be the problem? I guess it is dust that is in the lens hood but there is no way to clean, to open and clean or whatever. It is just a black box. Anyone an idea? Or having the same issue? Thanks!
Took my first videos in AVCHD, wonderful closeups of a grizzly family. They play on the camera just fine with the SD card in. But when I tried to copy the files from the SD card to a windows computer as well as a chromebook, the files were not shown on the card. There is nothing in the camera's internal memory. Thoughts? Thanks
Why cant lens and camera manufactures make a proper 16-85mm lens for full frame? I dont mean 24-120mm, i mean an actual 16-85mm? If it can be done on cameras such as the Lumix DMC-FZ70 or Powershot SX60HS, why cant they make it on an M43, APS-C or full frame? Are there any actual physical limitations to making a lens like this or do camera manufacturers want us to spend money on multiple lenses?
Does Panasonic operate a factory service center. I having a problem with my FZ70 and the best human contact was "chat", which didn't fix the problem. Finally, I found a service center on the website? called McAllen Exchange Cnt. Strange. No phone number, website or other info about sending lithium battery with the camera. Canon has a service center staffed by people you can talk with and a Canon factory service center. Must admit, not too impressed if this is Panasonic Service. My .02 Greg
Bought a FZ70 for $149 including memory card and bag. Never used a bridge superzoom and my expectations were modest. I took just few test pics in jpg. Is RAW helpful with this camera? At the whopping max zoom, I shot at 1/500 with a monopod and iso 250. Pics didn't look very good at 100% view, but with some unsharp mask applied, a 4x6 was excellent and an 8x10 was good with some blur noticeable in the upper right edge. Pics taken at slower shutter speeds were worse. Pics taken at less than...
Happy Holidays to All. I just sold off my Sony A65 system. Was looking for a traveling companion. I saw the G12 refurbished On the Canon site for 149.00. Thought it seemed like a good although dated camera. Received it a few days ago. Impressed with the image and build quality. Of course buyers remorse settles in. Would I be better off with something like a Lumix DMC FZ70? Also during a chat the rep said their refurbs had the same warranty as new cameras. Thought that was great. In the box it...
