I have a PANASONIC LUMIX FZ80 digital camera. To take a 2"x2" photo so there's 1 3/8" from the bottom of my chin to the top of my head, what mode and settings should I use? How far should the camera (mounted on a tripod) be from the subject? What zoom should I use? I'll be taking the photo of myself so I'll be setting the self-timer to "10" seconds so I can get from the camera and pose before the shutter-releases.

Recently I decided to start using the M mode on my FZ80 camera. Seems that  the exposure compensation setting is locked in at -3 and cannot be adjusted in M mode. In looking at my newly purchased ZS80 that setting is adjustable in the M mode. So I suspect that somewhere along the way  I have made a setting that is causing the issue. Have gone through the PDF version of the advanced user manual with endless searches but can't find a solution.  Any suggestions as to what setting may be causing...

I’ve had my camera a year now and I’m still struggling with getting better pictures. I’ve watched too many videos that it has become overwhelming. I want to create a custom setting for shooting backyard birds/animals. I currently shoot in A mode but I have to constantly change my iso and other settings. Is there a list somewhere that has settings I could use? Any help would be appreciated.

My 3-year old FZ82 still takes great pics and is the most versatile camera I have ever owned - BUT - it has developed an annoying habit of saying "switch off and back on" when I am operating the zoom - mostly if I zoom "out" and then back "in" soon after. This is becoming more frequent and I'm wondering if it is a known fault (and ideally one with a solution :-) )

Hi, I would be really grateful for some help/tips/advice. We are getting our son the E-M1 mark ii camera along with the 75-300 ii lens (both secondhand) for his birthday (16yrs). This is to be a step up from his current Panasonic Lumix FZ80 bridge camera. A big jump but we are hoping this will be a set up he can grow into and add to as he gets older. He loves photographing wildlife, especially birds. I have read so much information on so many website and I have to admit my mind is truly blown...

I have had my new Lumix FZ80 for a few months now and I find it somewhat complicated when I compare it to my Canon SX50. My Canon has a continuous shooting mode, and I was wondering if the FZ80 has the same. I know it has a burst shooting mode which I can't locate and I'm not sure whether it is the same as the Canon's continuous shooting?

I have an FZ80. I am trying to upload several videos and pictures to  my PC that Ive recently taken . I have followed the instructions of the manual and have got  to the stage where the white double pointed arrow appears on the camera screen .  The cable is plugged into  the output  on the camera and the USB end into the PC but I  cannot progress from there.  Im sure last time I used it, it automatically uploaded the contents . Any ideas?  Cheers

Can anybody familiar with this camera let me know whether it's possible to run a time lapse with a long (~2seconds) shutter speed, or does time lapse only allow standard speeds? I'm looking for a camera good for cloud development time-lapses, but if the shutter speed is short it freezes birds ruining the effect. Ideally I could combine time lapse with long opening in the camera menu, but another option would be to set long opening in the menu, then use remote trigger (if one is available). Is...

Hi all, I'm new to the forum - pleased to be here! I've had my Lumix FZ82 for a while now and have mostly just used standard automatic settings and produced some really good shots. I would like to start expanding though, and as it's autumn here in the UK right now take photographs of the showers sometimes, of leaves falling from the trees. When I try to read even the basics my brain glazes over, so I'd appreciate it if someone could help... Many thanks, Quandah
