Hi all, I use the camera in subject for my astrophotography almost exclusively because with the IR-filter removed, the sensor picks up a whole lot more red and on a regular A7S. And there're lots of nebulae and stuff that emit red wavelengths in deep space. The last time I dove (dived) was with a Panasonic TZ7 and the OEM housing 5 years, and more recently, I've noticed that Meikon is producing really affordable housings for a super-wide range of cams. My question is on the use of an...
Hi, Have had the camera since they first came out and I have always had this issue when trying to take a photo. I push the button half way down to have the camera focus and wait and wait and wait till it finally focuses and I'm able to take the pix. This also does this in full auto mode! My friends smart phone and even her cheap old Kodak takes great pix and she literally pushes the button and click photo taken. What am I doing wrong? I have tried various settings but again this is somewhat...
Hello I set the camera to video an event and only later discovered it had stopped videoing after just over 8 minutes! I think the message was "to preserve power" or something like this. The battery had been re-charged just before so why this and why did it stop? Have just tried again and see that it is counting down from 8 minutes 18 seconds!!! Where is this configured and cam it be changed? Is there a 2GB or 15 minute limit? Thanks for any help on this! Cheers Geoff
I am a total newbie with cameras. I just point and shoot. I got the ZS3 several years ago and I just can't get crisp images. My iPhone 5 takes better pictures. Most of what I shoot is outdoors, in mountains, woods, up high while climbing, etc. The pictures I get with my Panasonic in Intelligent Auto or Auto are always dull, soft. Perfect scenery shots come out fuzzy and just off-looking. I guess I am trying to figure out if it's me, or the camera or some settings? I recently reset to factory...
Hi, Newbie here. I have been a happy TZ7 user with Panasonic's 40 meters underwater housing and it's underwater scene mode (which increases the red color to compensate for the effect of deep dive). I would like to upgrade to the latest ZS50/TZ70 or last year's ZS40/TZ60, but it seems that 1. There is no u/w scene mode to increase the red. 2. Panasonic no longer makes u/w housing for it. Questions: 1. This is the case for ZS/TZ for the last several years. Does it mean that Panasonic no...
I've had my TZ7 for over 5 years. Both batteries still hold their charge well and the camera works perfectly. Mostly it lives in my handbag for "just in case" but doesn't see much action. My son has taken it on his travels through Europe and my husband regularly takes it on trips into the back country. Always point & shoot "idiot" mode - always it delivers! In fact I feel quite humbled at times at what good photos they so effortlessly take while I agonise over settings, lens choice and...
My main camera is a D700, bag 'o lenses, etc. I have been using a Lumix ZS3 as a point and shoot and for underwater casual photography. I am looking to replace the ZS3 and am considering the V3. Can you guys give me any help in deciding whether or not the V3 would function as an easy p&s? I like the ability to change lenses but also am interested in the ability to put it in my pocket and go. Thank in advance.
