Previous questions about this product

  • Why not make a DSLR out of the idea of a superzoom?

    I just bought this guy, but why don't they make a DSLR with an attached lens like this one. Basically what I mean is integrate a larger sensor and make the camera larger but include this amazing lens?

    Answered by rconsonni 2009-08-11:

    If you try to attach a larger sensor to a lens like this, you'll need a bigger and (a lot) heavier camera body. That's the reason they don't make a camera like this. Besides, it would cost a lot

  • Loosing Pictures!

    Hi. Why do I loose pictures from my camera. It's happened twice now. 1st time was my son 1st xmas and the 2nd time was his first snow. Getting really peed off with this camera. It dosen't delete all the pics but pics taken between dates. I know I didn't delete any. Is there something else I'm doing wrong?

    Answered by ellandry 2009-04-20:

    It could be the SDcard going bad, I had this happen with another camera. I would recommend scanning it with DiskInternals Flash Recovery http://www.diskinternals.com/flash-recovery/ I love it and it helped me recover over 200 pictures from a vacation when the SDcard bit the dust. I bought the license it worked so well.

  • Noise on my Pics

    Hi, I bought the DMC FZ28 on holidays lately but seen to always getting blurred pics. Can someone advise me on the best setup for taking pics of my kids that don't seem to stand still. Thanks from a novice

    Answered by stefan 2009-01-09:

    Hi, Try using a higher ISO setting but not too high and have faster shutter

    Answered by Nature 2009-08-15:

    One way to ensure your camera is completely still during photo shots is to invest in a remote release device. These will vary from camera to camera but most have some sort of accessory made for them. The other way of taking shots without touching your camera is to use the self timer.
