Hi guys, Quick question,,     I’m trying to do some short video clips with the TZ70 but getting a lot of wind noise. Can I fit an external mike with a wind muff to the camera ? I’ve looked but don’t see how I would connect it 🤔🤔 Any ideas guys,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I've just taken delivery of a TZ90(ZS70) camera that was sold as a new unwanted gift. I wondered if my two TZ7 batteries might act as spares, but no, the new camera has a bigger battery. In fact the TZ90 is a bigger brute of a camera than I was expecting! Anyhow I sorted through the other batteries I have and found that my Gx850 battery fits and operates the camera. It is smaller and would need some packing to stop it dislodging. Many years ago forum users shared that the FZ20 batteries...

I am awaiting delivery of a TZ90/ZS70 camera and am wondering if my 2 old TZ7/ZS3 batteries will work in it as back-up? They still take a charge and appear similar though lower powered. The battery for the TZ90 (as far as I can tell) is a BLG10E (7.2V, 1025 mAh 7.4Wh)? The two I have from the TZ7 are BCG10E (3.6V, 895 mAh 3.3Wh) In fact, I still have my FZ50 with the battery it came with, as well as my spare FZ20 battery which was a totally different size. People on the forum quickly deduced...

Hi All, I recently bought an a7c with the 28-60 kit lens.  I would like to build up a 2-3 lens set to cover my main interests of landscapes, family photos, wildlife and maybe some skiing (although I mostly use a GoPro for that).  I'd like to stay with the a7c philosophy of keeping it light and reasonably compact.  I don't want to spend too much until I can work out what kind of focal lengths work for me, so I'm thinking a set of zooms, probably Tamrons as they seem to meet the small, light...

Your thoughts please on the fz300 and if it really is sealed from dirt and dust. I have the zs100 and I love using my Nikon p950 long zoom but both have had to go to the shop to be cleaned. We ride sideXsides up in the mountains in Colorado several times a year and my cameras have gotten dirt in the lens, the ZS100 even when I kept it in the case till we were completely stopped at some pretty spots. I typically shoot landscapes, animals, and birds. I don’t shoot video and I wouldn’t be...

Hi guys, I know this may be a log shot, but I'll ask anyway. On flickr there was a Spainish guy who only ever used a Pan TZ7 and said he never ever did any pp work on his photos. I know he had a lot of disbelievers, and you make your own mind up on whether he was telling the truth or not,, that said,    can anyone ( Erik may know ) what his name was. Thanks guys. STAY SAFE,, Roland.

I've been a 'compact' kind of guy for years now, my current combo are LX7 & TZ70, but have over the last few months been thinking of going back to something with a larger sensor. I've always thought that I would'nt want to go back to changing lenses again and had thought about the FZ1000 ( I still have and use an old FZ200) but,,, I wondered what you guys thought of the idea of a used but mint GX7 with the 14/42 mk2 kit lens as maybe a starting point.  I can pick one up for around £240 UK. ...

I have a Panasonic TZ70, and I'm taking pictures in RAW+JPEG. I can copy the jpeg images to my Android Phone with Image App, however I cannot copy the raws. Is there any other way to copy raws to phone, other than putting the memory card into the phone? Basically I'm processing raws on desktop, however sometimes I would do some small corrections with a mobile app, and then upload it to Facebook/Instagram.

Hi, I have read in other threads, that some of the Panasonic cameras have extended lowest iso. For TZ70/ZS50 is the lowest native ISO the 80 or the 100? Actually I use this camera for hiking, and I'm usually in very good light conditions, so I mostly use ISO80, but this native lowest ISO thing confused me, does ISO80 actualy produce less noise with this camera than ISO100?
